Price in­cludes Day 1: Morn­ing col­lec­tion from your home to join our coach for the drive to Dover, and short sea cross­ing to France. We con­tinue our jour­ney to our overnight ho­tel. Day 2: After break­fast, we con­tinue our jour­ney through the Al­sace re­gion of France and cross­ing the bor­der into Switzer­land at Basel. We make our way to Davos and to our ho­tel. Day 3: We spend the Morn­ing in St Moritz be­fore we board the re­gional train and fol­low the trail of the Bern­ina Ex­press Rail­way. We en­joy the fan­tas­tic jour­ney through the moun­tains and into Italy. We see lakes, gorges and glaciers as well as a se­ries of loops and tun­nels that make this one of Europe’s great­est train jour­neys. On ar­rival in Ti­rano you will have time at leisure be­fore join­ing the coach and trav­el­ling back to Davos by road. Day 4: Today we head to Liecht­en­stein, the tiny Prin­ci­pal­ity wedged be­tween Switzer­land and Aus­tria. We will meet our tour guide who will point out the in­ter­est­ing places and his­tory of this lit­tle gem. We then head to the re­gion of Ap­pen­zell, for a visit to the fa­mous cheese dairy bear­ing its name. Dur­ing the tour, our guide will ex­plain the pro­duc­tion, and af­ter­wards we will be able to sam­ple the five most pop­u­lar va­ri­eties of Ap­pen­zeller cheese. Day 5: A day at your leisure to use your in­cluded “Davos Card” which per­mits free un­lim­ited use of all lo­cal trans­port and we sug­gest a trip on the Sch­warzalp Moun­tain Rail­way where you could visit the Alpine Gar­dens or maybe take lunch in the panoramic restau­rant. (Gar­dens & Lunch not in­cluded). Day 6: Today is an­other high­light of this tour with a jour­ney fol­low­ing part of the route of the Glacier Ex­press, ar­guably Switzer­land’s most fa­mous train. We travel to An­der­matt where we board the train, fol­low­ing the same route as the Glacier Ex­press. This un­for­get­table jour­ney takes us past le­gendary moun­tain peaks, icy blue tongues of glaciers and un­spoilt val­leys. Day 7: Sadly we bid farewell to Switzer­land and be­gin our jour­ney home­ward. We drive through the beau­ti­ful Al­sace re­gion and break our jour­ney at the pop­u­lar hill­side wine town of Riquewihr, be­fore mak­ing our way back to the overnight ho­tel in the Saar­brucken area. Day 8: After break­fast, we re­turn to Calais for an early af­ter­noon re­turn ferry cross­ing back to Dover and on to Nor­folk where our door to door ser­vice will take you home. 7 Nights Din­ner, Bed & Break­fast Door to Door Taxi Ser­vice Lux­ury Ex­ec­u­tive Coach Travel
