The perfect balance between chic urbanity and the great outdoors, Switzerland is one of the most sought-after destinations on a continent that overflows with them. Blending world-class chocolate and cheese, majestic alpine scenery, charming mountain towns, posh accents, and one of the most impressive rail journeys on Planet Earth, this trip delivers the Swiss experience your heart longs for.

After arriving in Zürich, the tour kicks into full swing in Lucerne, perhaps the most quintessentially Swiss town in Switzerland. After exploring its cobblestone streets and magnificent covered bridges on a privately guided walking tour, you’ll have the chance to sample some of the world’s finest cheeses and, later, indulge your sweet tooth through a private tasting at Max Chocolatier, one of the world’s finest chocolate-makers. An entire day devoted to the region’s natural treasures – including a leisurely cruise around Lake Lucerne and a cogwheel train ride to the summit of Mount Pilatus – caps off the experience here.

Further south lies Interlaken, the charming town nestled between the Thun and Brienz lakes. Your experience here begins with a delightful private horse-drawn carriage ride through the picturesque town. ... Show More »

You’ll see Zermatt’s most famous resident long before you arrive in this idyllic Swiss town. The 14,692-foot (4,478-meter) Matterhorn is synonymous with Switzerland itself. After an evening on your own to explore Zermatt, a private guide will bring you face-to-face with the mountain itself on a visit to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, home to an unbeatable 360° view of 38 Alpine peaks and 14 enormous glaciers from the summit.

The journey to your next stop is an experience in itself. After boarding the fabled Glacier Express in Zermatt, you’ll ride in first-class comfort through the spectacular Swiss countryside on an impossibly scenic eight-hour rail trip over nearly 300 bridges, through more than 90 tunnels, and across the stunning 6,706-foot (2,044-meter) Oberalp Pass to St. Moritz, the mountain playground of Europe’s elite. With a historic hotel as your home base, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the scenic delights (both on your own and via private horse-drawn carriage) before returning to Zürich.

Kensington Tours creates private trips from the world’s finest ingredients. Tailor-made with care by your personal Destination Expert, your personalized trip is always a one-of-a-kind experience made just for you. Expert local guidance and 24/7 service come standard. « Show Less

    Fantastic tour that met all our special requests! Our anniversary celebration was perfect! Our grandchildren made so many memories from playing in the fields of the farm to sailing through the fjords and eating desserts at all the bakeries! A marvellous intergenerational experience!

  • Julie S — July 05, 2019 — Europe

    Thank you to Daniel for making our family’s trip to Greece so enjoyable and memorable. We asked him for an “Instagram” worthy trip, and he delivered! The hotels on the islands were stunning, and our private tour guides at each stop easily accommodated our individual wishes. Our trip was the perfect mix of relaxation and exploration.

  • Elizabeth B — July 20, 2019 — Europe

    I cannot tell you how impressed we were with your services. Everything from the drivers to the hotels to guides was five stars! We never had to wait in line and were treated like royalty. I highly recommend the private boat ride/tour to Capri. It was fabulous! We had never been to Italy and left feeling like we learned so much. We fell in love with the people and culture. We cannot wait to have Kensington book our next adventure.

  • Kimberly E — July 14, 2019 — Europe

    It was the first time we have used a company of this nature to manage our bookings. Most often I book my rooms, and tours, but after this experience, I would definetely use Kensington again for a trip of this type. Our Destination truly supported us and allowed us to make changes until the plan was just perfect for us. This truly showed when we were in country and everthing went off perfectly. I was worried to have other book items on my families behalf seeing as we were traveling with kids (age 8 and 10), but I feel our destination Expert did take that into account and it was perfect.

    There is so much to say about this amazing family trip to northern Spain we just came home from, but in short, the trip was even more than we could have hoped for - From the planning to the tour guides, drivers and accommodations our needs were met and in most cases surpassed. There is no way the trip could have been as successful without the help of Maryanne from Kensington Tours and her team.

    Our Iceland trip was fantastic. From planning with Melissa (many times over until we had it right) to being greeted in Iceland and all of the wonderful tours we took, we had a fabulous time. Our guide, Sigga, was excellent. She guided us, told us tales of Iceland, was extremely accommodating with my elderly mom. We enjoyed being with her very much. Inke, our guide to the glacier, was also wonderful. We had a great time and felt Kensington did a fabulous job. Thanks!

    The trip overall was amazing and all the activities and travel plans went so very smoothly. Our whole familiy really enjoyed every day of the trip. Patrick McCallion, the expert from your agency who helped us, was awesome! He not only set up everything perfectly for us but helped us with reservations for dinners at fine dining places and answered many questions we had in advance. We did leave our glasses in the van at one point in Barcelona and had to contact the local agent who quickly retrieved the glasses for us without any problem. We highly recommend this agency given the quality of the experience, the smoothness of the itinerary, and the flexibility to tailored the experience to our needs. Thank

    This was our 6th Kensington tour. We have gone as a couple on trips and taken our children sometimes to destinations all over the world. We have never been disappointed and have had the most personal and professional service. We would not even consider using anyone else. Thank you Alania for everything! Our most recent trip to Russia and Scandinavia was fabulous and perfectly planned!
