Testimonials recently posted at Trip Advisor

There are soo many reasons that my husband and I loved this trip with Rene and Suzanne as our guides. The main reason: they made it magical!

 

We hiked with a small group from hotel to hotel along the Alpina 1 and they transported our luggage. This was the best glamping imaginable! Their knowledge of the trails, the region, and the accommodations made it possible for us to just show up and enjoy the scenery!

 

I loved the hiking options they made available for our group, too. The options were so well planned that even if someone chose to hike less on any day, they would still enjoy the mountains, trails and Swiss Alps. My husband found the hard to find Edelweiss on a small steep alp below the Matterhorn. And yes, the Sound of Music tracks played in my head over and over. It was the best trip ever..

This gives me an opportunity to write to thank you and Suzanne for the most wonderful vacation/experience we had over the past 10 days.

 

You took us to the most beautiful places and showed us the best of Alps. I can’t stop thinking about some of the peaks we explored and how we challenged ourselves to higher elevations. I now have to contend with our photos of a great trip.

 

I think the trip was very well organized, the accommodations were great and the food was excellent. Your care and generosity was exemplary. I shall live with the memories of this great trip for life.
Farhad, California


This was such a great trip where we experienced one fabulous view after another, from Engleberg to Zermatt.

 

We covered lots of ground in gondolas, trains and sometimes, buses. One of the trains even traveled through and close to the top of the Eiger and the Jungfrau.

 

Each day’s hiking was carefully planned with consideration of each group member’s capabilities. Everyone was accommodated. We hiked most days over a ten day period and Rene worked tirelessly to ensure we met all precise Swiss travel timetables and was a constant source of information of the current area and it’s history.

5 stars! The week with Rene and Suzanne in the Alps exceeded all expectations. Beautiful weather, amazing scenery, great company and lots of happy hiking. I would love to do another trip with Echo Trails.
