Markus was the best tour guide you can have. We had 5 children and 4 elderly people along with other adults. Markus was very pleasant, very polite and very well mannered. He was with us for 3 days as our guide. He had made all of our trip reservations in advance, making our vacation the most pleasant vacation. Chocolate making was the best experience for the kids. I would recommend Markus without any reservation and hesitation. I would definitely get him as our guide for our next visit.

Markus was a very knowledgeable guide, who was patient and helpful, even to others who needed help along the trail. He gave great tips for photography too and it was very kind of him to share with us the postcards and chocolates. We had a good time exploring the five lakes walk at Zermatt and will definitely recommend Markus for future trips!

Date: Jun 19/18

We used Markus for our trip from Interlaken to the Schilthorn, Trummelbach Falls, and a walk thru Murren with a return visit to Interlaken. He is a very personable guide and gave us history of the area. He had done his research prior to our visit and his suggestions of what to see was very useful. He is easy to communicate with and always returned my questions in a timely manner. Would use him again.

Date: May 11/18

Markus has been an excelent guide with very kind touchs added to the tour. This tour to Jungfraujoch is beautiful, you can miss it, and we have the luck that it was a sunny day with little clouds. Ice palace, snow, big glaciers, extraordinary views, feel like you are in the top near the sky and with a limpid air. As I say before not to be missed (my wife tells me that with this tour it pays all the travel from Argentina)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Eduardo Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a great pleasure to meet you and to read that you both enjoyed this day so much. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Sunny spring regards from Switzerland Markus

We had an overnight layover in Zurich & wanted to see some of the main points of interest. Markus did a great job, planning the tour, specifically for us! He was knowledgeable, informative and also shared some traditional Swiss treats & even a recipe, w/ is! He recommended a local restaurant, for our evening meal. It was perfect! Many thanks, to Markus, for a very memorable Zurich experience!

Markus was a very responsive and pleasant guide, and it was very nice to have him take us around. He helped answer all of our questions pre-departure (and responded very quickly) and was knowledgeable, and provided a lovely picnic lunch. As visiting Jungfraujoch itself is heavily dependent on weather, I don't know if a tour is needed, with some planning I think this can be done without a guide.

Our trip to Jungfraujoch with Markus was fantastic. Beautiful weather and incredible views of the alps and the glacier. Also fascinating to see the engineering involved in the construction of the train through the mountain in the late 1800 / early 1900's. Enjoyed a nice hike through the snow and the great picnic lunch that Markus brought along. We did tours with Markus from Interlaken on two days and both were great. Highly recommend touring with Markus.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve Thank you very much for your great testimonial. It was a great pleasure to meet you and your family and to read that you all enjoyed these two days. I am looking forward to seeing you and your family again. Sunny regards from Switzerland. Markus

Our tour with Markus was great. When arranged we told him the types of things we wanted to do and he put together a wonderful itinerary. Glacier waterfall, trip to Murren, an easy hike to a couple of villages, and lunch in the mountains. Topped off with a visit to the Funky Chocolate Club for chocolate tasting and making. Markus was enjoyable to visit with and attentive to the needs of our group. Highly recommend.

If pick 6-stars if I could. Markus was the perfect guide. My Family thought he was my friend, who happened to be taking us to see the best spots near Interlaken. We rode trains, hiked great spots like the Water Falls, got to see a Snow Storm in June, followed by sunshine. Markus took care of all the details, brought us some wonderful Swiss treats, and spent the whole day with my crazy family without once looking like he would rather be some place else. I recommend him for any adventure.

Markus was an exceptional tour guide. He was knowledgeable and friendly. Everything was perfectly planned, all we had to do was follow and listen. He went out of his way to ensure that we saw everything we had asked to see. He even brought us snacks and a "picnic lunch" which we thoroughly enjoyed at the top of Jungfraujoch. This tour was absolutely amazing and having Markus as our guide made it even better. Thank you Markus!

Our group of five adults loved the hike in the mountains above the city of Lucerne. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Europe. Our guide tailored the hike to meet our time and equipment restraints (we didn't bring hiking shoes to Europe) and led us along a beautiful mountain ridge with great views of the surrounding alps, Lake Lucerne and the city. He also prepared a fantastic picnic with local food and wine…….. Great day! Patrizia and Darrel Kemp

The snow shoeing tour with Markus was just great! Markus is a caring and wonderful person. We really enjoyed his tour and will not hesitate to book other tours with him in the future. The itinerary he prepared for us was very thorough and he made sure we had a good time in the mountain!

Markus was proactive, perfectly organized, and very accommodating. We had a (funny only in retrospect) emergency when my boots basically disintegrated in the high altitude of the Alps. Markus immediately found a place where I could get new footwear for a fair price. We continued on our way up the Jungfrau with only the most minor delay, and were still able to do everything we had planned. Markus truly saved the day.

Hello. We are pleased with Markus' service & attitude towards his job. We enjoyed the trip tremendously. We are quite an unfit group of Asians. Markus had taken this into consideration and adjusted the route accordingly. He understood our needs. A great guide. Wished we could stay in the mountains longer if not for the painful ski boots we had. Otherwise, it was an eye-opener for us - the alps was a fantastic view. Markus was patient with us. He deserves to be credited.
