Everything was more than expected. I had forgotten how stunning Switzerland is. I filled in the questionnaire on the homeward train and that tells you how great I found the vacation.

Our tour leader Martin Lockwood was marvelous! However, there was way too much rail travel, and some of the rail connections were rather short moving from one platform to another. In one case we had only 7 minutes to change trains. Most of us were running and completely out of breath by the time we got to the next train. Whoever set up this connection obviously had not actually been to the station. On our last tour in 2016 we had better meals available on the trains, and some of the hotels were more comfortable and much newer. Finally, I left a toiletry back at the Hotel Maritim in Kohl. I called that hotel and paid a good deal of money to have it forwarded to me in Kandersteg, but it never arrived. I have asked that it be sent to me at my home in Tennessee but it hasn't arrived. Please get it to me!
