If you can notice, the grass is greener, the sky is bluer and the air is fresher. I don’t know if it is the magic of the Alps or an emotional gravitational pull for the soul, but what I know is, it is truly Paradise on Earth!” – Shahla Khan.
Our Alpine Dream tour may indeed seem like a trip through paradise, as we visit some of the most beautiful mountain locations in three countries. We wind our way through the snowcapped peaks of Austria, Germany and Switzerland absorbing scenery and culture alike. We go to the tops of mountains and cruise on glacial lakes; we sample the tasty alpine cuisine including succulent cheeses and mouthwatering chocolates; and we dive into the spirit of the seasons and longstanding folk traditions of the local populace.
This is a sample itinerary for the Alpine Dream tour. It can be customized to suit your interests. Please see below for more information.

Then we visit idyllic Berchtesgaden, with a visit to the Eagle’s Nest, as we head west towards the posh resort of Kitzbuhl. The Inn river valley and Innsbruck are next, followed by the famous fairy tale castle Neuschwanstein, located in perhaps the most beautiful area of the Bavarian Alps. We next skirt the northern edge of the Alps as we head towards the principality of Liechtenstein and Switzerland. We will be based in Lucerne, which is, with both lakes and mountains, truly the heart and soul of Switzerland. We’ll go to the summit of Mount Pilatus, visit the Swiss Army Knife Valley and take a boat ride on Lake Lucerne.
