Good Morning Zurich! Get ready for your Swiss adventure with breakfast at your hotel. The Optional Tour of Mt Titlis will begin soon after breakfast. On your journey to the top of Mt. Titlis you will experience the world’s first 360 degrees revolving cable car – just so that you don’t miss the view! As you rock your way upwards, you will be greeted with a beautiful view of the Swiss mountains and tall pine trees that look like little pins from above. Once you are at the summit, there are plenty of activities to indulge in. Explore underground ice caves filled with millions of ice crystals that glisten under soft turquoise light or, if you want something more adventurous, walk across the highest suspension bridge in Europe – Cliff Walk! Try not to scream as you tread your way over the hanging bridge – but it is definitely worth a try! The first few minutes may render you speechless but don’t forget to enjoy the experience as much as possible! Follow this up with a shot at the Ice Flyer – glide from mountain to mountain on a chair lift to the Glacier Park and finish your time with a cup of hot chocolate.

What people say about us

Travel Tips

Carry sunscreen and sunglasses every day with you while you are travelling

Be on time as advised by the dedicated tour manager

Having a travel Insurance is very important!

Scan your passport/ identity card photos and save them in your mobile

Try learning a few words of the language of the country you are visiting

Always carry a photocopy of your itinerary with yourself

Self-educate yourself about the local customs of the country before you arrive. You obviously don't want to offend anyone while you travel!

Be kind, polite & Smile often! Being part of a group tour will definitely make it easier for you to make your new travel buddies.

Carry an extra pair of clothes when you are catching a flight in your handbag in case of any unexpected delays

Charge all your gadgets whenever you get time. A great tip - you'll find a USB charging port at the back of your hotel TV!

Try not to exchange your currency at the airport as you won't get the best exchange rate over there

Get earplugs and a sleep mask along with you! They can be very helpful when you are flying or especially during your inter-country commute via tour bus

Track your spending when you're on the trip! It can be tiresome but you'll always be well-informed about all your expenses and the remaining travel budget amount

As tipping is habitual in most of the countries, it's not polite to walk out of the restaurants without tipping anything. You can tip somewhere between 10 to 20 per cent of the total bill value
