This was our first trip with great Rail Journeys and it was an excellent experience. Paul Parmenter was a superb tour guide and was passionate about Switzerland which shone through. There was 32 people on the trip who all got on very well couldn't have asked for better.

The tour exceeded my expectations in accommodation (except Strasbourg although their breakfast was one of the best. I just had a bad room - No.215.), In fact, everything first class. Other passengers on the tour were congenial, and the weather was perfect!!! Portering one's luggage, especially Paris between stations, was a bit tricky but not impossible.
