Day 1 – Arrive into Zurich, transfer to Neuchâtel
Upon arrival at Zurich International Airport, meet your personal English-speaking chauffeur.
Depending on your arrival time and energy levels, you may want to visit Bern’s UNESCO old town and stop by a quaint riverside Swiss restaurant for lunch as you watch locals commute using the Aare River with their waterproof bags.
Continue on to your over-water accommodation in Neuchâtel and spend the rest of the day at your leisure to soak in your surroundings and enjoy the tranquillity.
Day 2 – Neuchâtel (Watch Valley)
Your personal chauffeur and English-speaking guide will bring you on a day-trip to the Watch Valley. One can say Switzerland is synonymous to watch-making, and for horology enthusiasts, the Watch Valley is the primary location of watch-making in Switzerland.
Visit the International Clock-making Museum, followed by a private watch-making masterclass where you can experience first-hand the intricacy and expert techniques that goes into watch-making. The best part is you’ll get to bring home a mechanical watch that you can truly call your own.
Day 3 – Neuchâtel (Gruyère, Lavaux)
For the early birds, a morning hike at the nearby Areuse Gorges would make for a rejuvenating and energising start to the day. Return back for breakfast before your personal chauffeur and private English-speaking guide picks you up for another adventure.
Drop by the picturesque medieval town of Gruyère for interesting insight into the art of fondue preparation and give chocolate-making a shot.
Ask any Swiss and they’ll claim they produce some of Europe (or the world’s) finest wines but the rest of us don’t hear much about them because they leave the best for themselves and only export what little ‘leftovers’ they have. Drop by the UNESCO Lavaux wine region for a delectable meal with excellent wine-pairing at one of the many award-winning vineyards (own expenses).
Day 4 – Neuchâtel to Lucerne
Be picked up by your personal chauffeur and private English-speaking guide. En-route to Lucerne, admire the astounding bird’s-eye view of the Alps (including the “Top of Europe” – Jungfraujoch) on a shared scenic helicopter ride, and travel through picturesque landscapes on a trotti-bike.
Be lulled by the mysterious Lake Lucerne aboard the shared Bürgenstock shuttle boat and funicular railway as you access your mountain-top wellness accommodation overlooking Lake Lucerne.
Day 5 – Lucerne
The day is at your leisure to enjoy the wellness facilities available at your accommodation, or to explore the various sights of Lucerne, such as the numerous bridges over the Reuss River, as well as the old town and its historical structures.
Day 6 - Lucerne to Milan
Your private English-speaking guide will pick you up from Lucerne boat dock as you disembark from the shared Burgenstock shuttle boat.
Make your way to your personal chauffeured car and towards Mount Stanserhorn. Once here, ride the vintage funicular train through blooming meadows and the world’s first open-top aerial cable car to the peak for a panoramic view of three countries!
Rounding up your epic trip to Switzerland is a tandem paragliding experience over scenic landmarks – a family-friendly activity suitable even for children in their pre-teens.
Arrive into one of the world’s four fashion capitals – Milan – at dusk.
Day 7 - Milan
After a hearty breakfast, explore the city’s wealth of museums, art galleries and exquisite fashion boutiques at your leisure.
In the evening, your personal chauffeur will send you to the Duomo for an exclusive after-hours private tour. Have the Duomo all to yourself – the peace and quiet you will experience in this grand church that is the largest in Italy, second largest in Europe and third largest in the world can be truly moving.
Your cut-above-the-rest experience at the Duomo will be punctuated with an impressive organ performance.
Day 8 - Depart Milan
At the appropriate time, your personal chauffeur will send you the Milan International Airport for your departure flight home.
