About Guided Tours

We offer a small selection of carefully crafted, small group guided tours.   Our group size in the Alps is limited to 14 people, so groups are always cozy and intimate. Small groups create a fun, flexible dynamic that’s just not possible with a larger number of people, so we strive to keep things small. Just as importantly, we also believe that when you make a commitment to take your vacation with Alpinehikers, we’ve made a commitment to you to lead the tour. You become our guest. There is no minimum size, and our tours will never be cancelled due to low enrollment (even 1 person is enough), so you can plan your vacation confidently. If you’ve reserved, you’re going!

Guided tour prices are per person and include lodging, all breakfasts, all lunches, most dinners, baggage transport between inns (if applicable), ground transport during the tour, selected entrance fees, gratuities and taxes, and daily guided hikes. New this year, we are including airport transfers and Swiss rail passes for travel to/from the airport on almost all of our tours. We don’t expect you to pay for cablecars, busses or trains we take during the course of our hikes, tip the hotel and restaurant staff (we do that), or provide your own meals.

The only things the tour price does not include are drinks with your dinners, personal items, extras charged to your room (like minibar or phone calls), tips for your guides, or insurance of any kind.


How does it work?

Our guided tours are all guaranteed to run.  If you find a trip you like, just check to make sure we have space still, then sign up online and you are on the trip.  If you have any extra time in the Alps and would like to add a self-guided to custom extension to your tour, we’ll be happy to help with that too.  If you have any questions at all, just ask.  We’re always a quick phone call or short email away!
