Wine Tour to the Piedmont
7 days/6 nights
from CHF on request - luxury all inclusive package with many Extras!
Zürich - Ascona - Piemont in Italy - Milano
Not many can boast of having a personal sommelier guide them on a wine tour!
Join our Sommelier David on an all inclusive wine tour to the Piedmont and learn more about wines, spirits and Piedmontaise specialilties! Meet wine makers and get an exclusive insight in the wine making business. A tour of luxury class, not only for wine lovers!
We are offering our preferred customers this exclusive privilege and have organised a wine tour with a well-known sommelier of Zurich. Your sommelier is a wine connoisseur and dealer of Italian wines and Grappe. His preference is for wines from small vineyards in Piedmont, Tuscany and Sicily. He personally visits his suppliers on a regular basis and over the years has become friends with them.
Tasting some of the most exclusive wines from one of the best wine-growing areas in Italy – the Piedmont – is not the only purpose of this tour. We want to give you the opportunity to gather insight and knowledge about wine, its cultivation and proper tasting of this precious elixir in the company of a professional wine connoisseur. SwissSafari and the sommelier will introduce you to the “Mystery of Wine” through exclusive visits to some of the best winegrowers in the Alba and Roero areas. In talks with the winegrowers about the cultivation, the wines and daily life, you will come to appreciate the personality of the wines. Culinary highlights served in choice restaurants are a side benefit.
This tour does suit all levels of wine knowledge and experience, but does not promise to make wine experts out of your customers who were not previously wine experts. But you will get some more knowledge of wine-growing, cultivation, storage, serving and tasting so that you will be able to make better decisions when choosing wine in the future. You will no longer choose the right wine solely on the basis of price, but based on the winegrower, the grape variety, the vintage and the wine-growing area. And of course, you will be able to buy fine wines at preferential rates.
A great luxury all inclusive Tour!
Motorcycle Tour with Carmen
8 days / 7 nights
from CHF on request - all inclusive land arrangement - Luxury Tour with many extras!
Zürich - St. Moritz - Ascona - Lake Geneva Region - Interlaken - Alpine Passes - Lucerne - Zurich
Drive the Swiss Alpine roads on a speedy motorcycle. Carmen, your guide, will take you on a great trip!
As a long-time motorcycle freak and tour rider (my bike and I have already crossed every mountain pass of Switzerland, crossed Africa from North to South and North America on extended tours and been around the world more than 6 times by kilometres), I would like to offer a few customers of mine a very special highlight!
Switzerland is a biker country – good roads and orderly traffic conditions, beautiful routes and curves make Switzerland a paradise for motorcyclists. That’s why this year again I will be personally conducting two motorcycle trips in the luxury category!
This summer I will take my guests on two tours through sleepy villages and on curvy passes through the Swiss Alps, past deep blue lakes, waterfalls and deep gorges, and eye-to-eye with glaciers. Mid-day breaks will be on pass summits with breath-taking views or in typical Swiss inns with regional cooking, where bikers can talk shop.
After a day’s adventurous motorcycle ride, guests will go to a luxury resort where they will be pampered in first-class style. A modern Mercedes Viano van will transport luggage so that bikers are free to fully enjoy the ride and still not have to deprive themselves of anything. There is room for accompanying persons in the van and if the weather is bad, there is also room for a maximum two motorcycles on the trailer.
Bikes will be rented in Switzerland, where just about every model is available. If a guest wishes to bring his own bike, I will be happy to assist with formalities. I myself have been riding a beautiful Triumph Bonneville 750cc for the past 30 years and will be on tour with this “Beauty”.
I look forward to to this trip and to share some time with you!!
Beginning of June when the mountain passes open from the winter break (date will be a short term decision and will be announced on request)
Tour 1: July 13 / Tour 2: August 24
I take registrations for both tours until End of May only!
Tour length and route can be discussed individually and will be worked out according to the weather. The attached program is a proposal.
First book/first go. No dates will be held on option. Tours on request – solid bookings only are accepted.
Maximum group size: 6 motorcycle riders, only for groups of friends or individual travellers.
Once the date is booked, the itinerary and length of the tour can be customised. I reserve the right to change the itinerary, the Hotels and rate.
Hiking Tour with Hugo
from CHF on request
Hike Switzerland’s hidden paths with Hugo, our hiking guide. Great views, overnight stays in mountain huts. See Switzerland from an other perspective!
Your hiking tour can take you to high Alpine regions and go through cool forests. It can lead you along sparkling creeks and blue lakes. You can cross deep gorges and see medieval towns – possibilities are endless. With pleasure we create a hiking and sightseeing tour in combination.
You tell us which grade and regions you would like to hike and we will come up with a great proposal. And don’t worry about your luggage – we care about it.
Alpine Farm stay
from CHF on request
Do you think you have seen all? Is there nothing that could impress you in your life? I bet you have never lived on an Alpine farm.
We take you high up to the Alps where you live with an Alpine farmer! Be, for a good week part of his life and experience how hard and humble life can be. Milk the cows, learn how to make cheese and help the alpine farmer to run his farm. At the end of a long working day you will be rewarded by a sunset of the finest. Bed time is early – there is no electricity. Great hikes with the guide will complete this unique package.
This is not a vacation for luxury lovers – life up there is simple! But it is a great experience for persons looking for that extra something and wanting to get a real life experience!
