Custom Tours to the Alps

While we have many great pre-designed tour itineraries in Switzerland, Italy and France to choose from, sometimes the itineraries you see just don’t fit what you want to do.  That’s where a custom tour comes in.  Switzerland and the Alps are our specialty.  I’ve lived in Switzerland year-round, and have been arranging tours and traveling annually in Switzerland, the Dolomites and the Mont Blanc region since 1997. Many of our office staff are also guides, and everyone has been to the Alps (and can’t wait to go back).  If you have a question, we’ll have an answer, or will find out!

Here are just a couple examples of custom, tailor-made tours we have arranged in the past.

About Custom Tours to the Alps

If you want to make significant changes to one of our tours, or build a custom, bespoke tour from scratch, we love the challenge of building the perfect itinerary. We will listen to what you want, offer suggestions of our own, and design the perfect itinerary that is just for you. We know what it’s like because we’ve been there ourselves, and we can not only build a tailor-made trip to your specifications, but we can help catch problems before they arise and introduce you to new experiences that you might otherwise miss. Because of the extra time involved, expect a customized tour to cost about 20% more than one of our existing, comparable self-guided tour itineraries.

Whether you’re planning a hiking tour or a leisurely train tour, huts and inns or 5-star hotels, travel by car, by train or even by helicopter, self-guided or with a private guide…. Just let us know what you are looking for and we will work to put the perfect trip to the Alps together for you.

“Our trip to Switzerland was absolutely amazing. We knew very little about the country prior to communication with Troy, but he was able to help build our perfect self-guided tour. He set out a sample itinerary, and patiently and efficiently worked through our desires and preferences. He did a great job of keeping us on track, but also supported our ideas that were a little outside the box.”

How does it work?

Our custom tours can generally be booked for any number of people and any dates that work for you.  Guided, self-guided, or anywhere in between.  If you find a trip you would like to customize, or want to start an itinerary from scratch, let us know.  We’ll ask some questions, will try to narrow in on what you would like to do, and send a custom proposal.  If you ever have any questions, just ask.  We’re always a quick phone call or short email away!
