TESTIMONIALS

  • TESTIMONIALS

    le-grand-adventures-5-stars"Switzerland Road Bike Tour" - We asked Jeff and Crystal for a private bike tour of the Swiss Alps for a group of four and it was an amazing trip. They did a great job of selecting very nice bike friendly hotels, picking the most amazing routes and creating other side trips such as beer tasting. Jeff and Crystal are wonderful people to spend time with and we would do another trips with them! Thanks Jeff and Crystal for making Switzerland an amazing adventure.
    Andrea B.
    le-grand-adventures-5-stars"Switzerland Road Bike Tour" - Wow this was really special. We road during the day and then went on wine or brewery tours, or we went to great restaurants every night. Jeff and Crystal were really impressive. Our group was intentionally small - just 4 of us. The private guiding was amazing because they knew SO much about the country. Even with just 4 of us, the rider ability was very different and they made it fun for everyone. We saw so many amazing sights we never would have found without Le Grand Adventure Tours.They coordinated the lodging, restaurants, rides, trains, etc. At 47, this was the best trip of my life. Jeff and Crystal have great energy and that is contagious. Jeff is the best cyclist I have ever seen and he can lead anyone. Crystal is an absolute joy to be around and the two of them are an unbeatable pair. I strongly suggest them.

    How Long Does It Take to Fly to Switzerland?

    Flight time from the West Coast of the United States to Zurich is approximately 11.5 hours if you book a non-stop flight. From the East Coast the flight time is approximately 8 hours.


    Can I Use My Credit Card in Switzerland?

    Credit cards are widely accepted, but Amex is not always accepted. Better stick with Visa. You will need some cash - but just for casual expenses. Most things can be paid for by credit card. The currency is CHF/Swiss Franc. EUR is not the currency of Switzerland (even if it is sometimes accepted by some merchants at a bad exchange rate). It never makes sense to carry too much cash on you - anywhere. Withdrawing cash from your checking account using your US cash/debit card is usually much cheaper than converting dollar bills at an exchange desk and you will get the BEST Exchange rate. Many credit cards charge a foreign transaction fee around 3-5%. This may be the time to get yourself a fun new rewards travel credit card that comes with "No Foreign Transaction Fees." We never leave home without it.


    Which Languages are Spoken in Switzerland?

    The four national languages of Switzerland are German, French, Italian and Romansh. In the Davos & St. Moritz area they speak German or a Swiss-German dialect. You will find English is widely spoke all over Switzerland. It is still great to learn a few of the day to day vocabulary to be polite.


    Is It Safe to Travel to Switzerland?

    Switzerland is very safe. Always take regular precautions whenever abroad to save yourself from any potential headaches that could interfere with your travels.


    I Heard Switzerland is Expensive, How Expensive is it?

    With its plethora of international banks, the country is a center for global wealth. Supermarket sell pre-made meals for between 5-9 CHF. Bars and cafés are the cheapest food option, cost about 9-15 CHF for a lunch special. Restaurants with table service are around 20 CHF for lunch and 40 CHF for dinner (starter, main, and drink) to start. You’ll typically find pizzas for around 20 CHF in a restaurant. If you’re dining out (but still trying to stick to a budget), you’ll spend an average of 25-45 CHF a day on food.
