Indulge in the idyllic scenery and famed culinary delights of Switzerland on this spectacular tour. Explore verdant vineyards, visit a fairytale island château and enjoy an unforgettable journey on the luxurious Chocolate Train, all from an elegant base by the sparkling shores of Lake Geneva.
We meet at our dedicated St Pancras Departure Office before boarding the Eurostar service to Paris, and continue to Montreux, via Lausanne. Our base in Montreux is the luxurious 5-Star Royal Plaza Montreux, directly on the shores of picturesque Lake Geneva, where we stay for the next six nights.
Today we travel to Château de Chillon, a romantic island castle on the edge of Lake Geneva, where we have a guided tour. We return to Montreux by boat, enjoying a scenic and relaxing cruise.
Our excursion today takes us by rail to the unspoilt mountain resort of Les Diablerets, for a guided tour. Situated high in the mountains, Les Diablerets is a lovely village filled with wooden houses, traditional farm buildings, and surrounded by Alpine meadows.
You are at leisure today to explore your idyllic surroundings, using your included Montreux Riviera travel card for free local public transport, as well as a 50% discount on boat and mountain railway journeys, and selected museums.
We take a journey on the delightful Chocolate Train today, enjoying coffee and croissants on board as we journey from Montreux to Montbovon. We continue by coach to Gruyères, where we visit Maison de Gruyère for a tasting of this local cheese. We then travel by coach to Broc, for a visit to the Maison Cailler Nestlé factory and for a tasting of delicious Swiss chocolate before our return to Montreux.
We travel to Cully in the Lavaux region today, where historic terraced vineyards rise from the shores of Lake Geneva. We are given a guided tour of the vineyards on the charming local land train before we visit a local winery for a talk and a wine tasting. Tonight, we enjoy a farewell dinner together at our hotel.
