As I have never traveled solo in Europe, I am thinking of a Road Scholar tour. Has anyone experienced guided tours of Switzerland? I am in my 60's, fairly active (mostly walking), and want do the train as much as possible.

Hi Cathylou-

Welcome to MySwissAlps.

I've heard good things about Road Scholar tours, bu have always taken advantage of the Swiss Travel System and the friendly attitude of the Swiss, and have done all my 80+ trips with with self-planning.

The several links from these pages can help you understand traveling in Switzerland.

There are also some links to tour companies:

Do you have any idea what you want to see or do?

Hi Cathylou.

I am also single, in my 60s and fairly active

I am leaving for a tour with Insight on September 2 for two weeks. They have other single people and there is no single supplement.

I am very new to this travel form and do not know if people ever contact each other directly or not. I do not want to break any rules that I may not be aware of.

I have also heard good things about Rhodes Scholar by the way FYI, it is costing me about 5000 I think including optional tours and airfare for two weeks in Switzerland which is a pretty good deal

Sorry about the mistakes but I dictated this.

Hi Sambon-

Direct contact is not available on the Forum. When information is posted publicly, it helps everyone who reads it. There are quite a few people who read posts but don't necessarily reply. I certainly learn a lot that way.

This may help:

Does the guided tour you are considering use the trains, or do you mean you would be happy to do some exploring by yourself using the trains?

If you are considering some independent travel in Switzerland, you couldn't have picked a better country! It is very safe and easy to get around, and there is a wealth of information on MySwissAlps to assist you, in addition to the forum, especially if you have plenty of time to plan.
