Today evening join up with your coach and depart towards Dover or Folkestone for your crossing to Calais; you will require your passports at hand as we will cross the UK and French immigration, as well as security. The crossing on the ferry will last approx. 90 Minutes; 40 minutes if the crossing is from the Euro Tunnel train.
Once we are in mainland Europe, we make our way directly towards Switzerland. We will be crossing through France, Belgium and possibly Luxembourg whilst we make our way towards Switzerland.
In the morning we will stop to freshen up at services after the overnight drive, you can purchase your own breakfast from the services.
We continue our journey heading through the Black Forest region of Germany and into Schaffhausen a city in north-eastern Switzerland on the river Rhine, next to the German border. On arrival why not take the time to admire the prime tourist attraction of the Rhine Falls, Europe's largest open-plan waterfalls. You have the time to enjoy a quick trip to the center of falls on the erosion-resistant rock or simply bide the short time we have here admiring the beauty from the banks of the River Rhine with the Wörth Castle in the backdrop.
We continue our journey from the Rhine falls toward Central Switzerland. We have our Indian meal either at the restaurant or the hotel before we settle in for our two nights at the hotel. We anticipate to be at the Hotel by 18:00 today, so you may have some time to freshen up in your rooms before we make our way for dinner.
We have an early breakfast today and head out on the coach towards Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen.
Today spend time in Interlaken, a small town nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. The Höheweg is Interlaken's main street which runs between Interlaken West and Interlaken Ost Railway Stations, spend the time shopping away for souvenirs along the high street or simply admire the rich views of the Bernese Alps. Why not wander through the Kursaal Garden, where you can see a 350 Kg statue of the renowned Indian filmmaker, the late Yash Chopra.
For those of you not doing the Mt Jungfrau optional, you will have the full day in Interlaken. We recommend that you have activities or a day plan as Interlaken is a small town, so without any activities or day plan, you may find that there is little to do unless you explore the activities on offer.
Today you also have the opportunity to conduct two optional tours that your tour rep will present to you. You can choose to do Mt Jungfrau and Trummelbach Waterfalls, which are both located in the Lauterbrunnen valley. You will still have some time in Interlaken if you choose to do these optional tours.
If you choose the Mt Jungfrau optional you will head towards Lauterbrunnen Valley, the deepest U-shaped valley in the world with either side rising a sheer 1000 meters. We have a jaw-dropping train journey on a cogwheel that takes us up to the top of Mt. Jungfrau at 3454 meters above sea level. At the top, have free time to explore the Ice Palace to view life-sized ice sculptures carved from the Glacier, visit the Sphinx observation tower for spectacular views of the Aletsch glacier and surrounding peaks, often said you could see as far as Italy on a clear day. Then spend your remaining time buying souvenirs and chocolates before we meet up at our meeting point at the top and making your way back down.
After a jam-packed day in Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen, we make our way back for our Indian meal and hotel. With a day full of memories get in a good night's sleep for another adventurous day tomorrow.
After breakfast today we ascend 10,000ft to the summit of Mt. Titlis. We take a small cable car or funicular depending on the time of the year before we take the world’s first revolving cable car, the Titlis Rotair. The Rotair makes one full revolution whilst we ascend to the top of Mt Titlis giving you a 360-degree view of the Uri Alps. Once we reach the top you can not only enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding Swiss landscapes, but you will have ample time to take pictures in traditional Swiss outfits, buy souvenirs and walk the highest Cliff Walk, a suspended pedestrian bridge along the cliff of Mount Titlis 3,000 m above sea level, it is believed to be the highest elevation suspension bridge in Europe (subject to operation). Spend the morning playing in the snow and visit the ice caves.
On Mt Titlis, you can also enjoy the optional Ice Flyer (subject to operation). The Ice Flyer chairlift sweeps you smoothly and safely over crisp, virgin snowfields and icy depths. Some of the crevasses are up to twenty meters deep. Only on Mt Titlis can you expect such a fantastic glacier experience, and don’t forget to smile as you can purchase a perfect souvenir of your picture from the photo studio shop.
We make our way down in the early afternoon, and board our coach and make our way down from Engelberg to the beautiful city of Luzern (Lucerne).
In Lucerne spend the time admiring Lake Luzern, the fourth largest lake in Switzerland, with Mt Pilatus, Mt Rigi and the Swiss Alps in the background, or take a wonderful walk around the Old Town and shop to your heart content in the pretty cobbled streets with top high street fashion names. Don’t forget to walk and view the Chapel Bridge also known as Kapellbrücke, the famous 204 meters long wooden covered bridge originally built in 1333, regarded as the oldest covered bridge in Europe. We later visit the Lion Monument, or the Lion of Lucerne, a rock relief, designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris. The carving has often been heralded as "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world".
We board back onto the coach after another fun-filled day heading for our evening Indian meal and hotel located in Strasbourg.
Today morning we depart very early from the Hotel, depending on the location we may be given a packed breakfast. We then check out of the hotel and depart towards Calais for your crossing to Dover or Folkestone.
We will be covering quite a distance today to reach London, so ensure you carry your key essentials and devices for your entertainment for the journey.
The journey back we say goodbye to friends we have made along the way as we drop off those getting off on the route.
Once we reach Calais, we cross over back into Dover or Folkestone depending on our crossing schedule for the tour on the day. We continue our journey towards Wembley and dropping passengers off at their respective drop-offs.
