Clare K.

Morgins, Valais, Switzerland

My name is Clare. I am a private tour guide offering private tours in and around Montreux, the pearl of the Swiss Riviera, for over 20 years.

There is so much history and culture in Switzerland to learn about, numerous places to visit, many fun activities to enjoy and delicious local specialities to taste.
I'm very fortunate to live in Switzerland - the most beautiful country in the world with fabulous wines, cheeses and chocolate amongst other wonderful produce. The stunning views of the lakes and mountains will literally take your breath away!
I grew up in England and moved here to Switzerland in 1984 to continue my career in skiing. I started tour guiding for a travel company in Montreux in 1987 and today, not only teach skiing in the winter, being a fully qualified Swiss Ski Instructor with Brevet Federal, but am an experienced tour guide, licensed member of ASGT, the Swiss Association of Tour Guides, guiding mainly private tours from April to December. I also give Swiss wine tastings and teach French and English during the year.
In my spare time I enjoy most sports, particularly skiing, snow-boarding, mountain-biking, tennis, wake-boarding, wind-surfing, trampolining as well as cooking, travelling and reading.
I adore meeting people and sharing my local knowledge and love of Switzerland with them in an interesting and informative way - it's always a pleasure to show and explain our country to visitors, and I want all of of my guests to have a fabulous time in Montreux and to share their unforgettable holiday memories with their friends and family on their return home.
Apart from the tours I already offer, I will be more than happy to personalise your tour depending on your interests and desires, so please do not hesitate to ask me for your tailor-made tour! Maybe you would like to visit Chamonix, Zermatt, Interlaken or Bern during your stay?
