What tour did you travel on?

The Alpine Adventure in June 2018.
 

Why did you select this particular tour?

I love the Alps and the scenery.


Jungfrau and Grindelwald Village in Berner Oberland, Switzerland


Who did you travel with?

My husband Jason.
 

Have you travelled with us previously?

No, this was my first Albatross tour.
 

What was your favourite place/s on your Albatross tour?

That's a hard one - I loved Zermatt for the Matterhorn and the gorgeous town it is, staying there for two nights was a real treat. However I did equally love Klosters in Switzerland - beautiful little town, stunning scenery, friendly people and the cutest Swiss accommodation, everything you imagine.

What was the most amazing thing you saw or did on your Albatross tour?

We travelled by cable car up the Aiguille Du Midi, and had time to do a short hike in the Alps, just beautiful.

Tell us about your most memorable moment on tour?

My most memorable moment was travelling by cogwheel train up to the Gornergrat from Zermatt. Along the way we were greeted with amazing views of the Matterhorn. At the top we sat amongst the wild flowers looking at the Matterhorn with a hint of snow on its peak - breathtaking!

What advice do you have for anyone interested in travelling on this tour?

If you love scenery and the time to take it all in, this is the tour for you! It is full of amazing drives, the Glacier Express and the time to take walks and soak it all up.

Would you recommend this tour to family and friends?

Absolutely - this tour is so well put together with plenty of time to enjoy the alps and then wind your way down to Italy to the beautiful and amazing Lake Garda to enjoy a different and unique part of Italy.
