Hi

Like to check if anyone has travelled to Switzerland (and Paris, and London) with either SA Tours or Chan Brothers for their honeymoon.

Like to know if:
1. the tour iternary is relaxed or rush?
2. need to wake up very early each day?
3. the food & accomodation is okay?

Thank you!

Hi
I took the 13D Europe tour with chan bros (not for honeymoon) and did not cover London. Find it rushed and we woke up very early everyday, cos the coach needed to leave at 8am. Breakfast was typically at around 6.45am. It was fun but tiring.

Food - mostly Chinese. We topped up $80 euro to have the Swiss Fondue dinner in Switzerland which was very filling. Accomodation was good in Paris and Switzerland. But not that good in Italy.

We spent 2 nights in Lucerne so it was relaxing there. We had plenty of time to waste in the town.

It was very rushed in Paris. We saw every thing from far - Eiffel tower, Arch de Triomphe, etc. But we were free to explore on our own at night, so we went to ascend the Eiffel Tower by ourselves - took the train and all.

Do check your itinerary - how many places in a day. If you are covering many places, chances are that you will be rushing from place to place.

Hi Low,

i think it will be good to visit Switzerland in May, June when they have the Jazz Festival, and there will be flowers blooming in Geneva. E.g Rose Garden in Berne etc... Check it out.

Hi

I signed up a 10 days switzerland & paris tour pkg wif chan bros during the natas fair. I was afraid @ 1st that it'll gonna be a rush & hectic journey but was assured by the tour consultant that its a non-rush itinary...paid abt $4,010 for 2 pax. Err..it isnt a full meal cover so be prepared 2 fork out xtra $$$ for meals. Rite now, I dont hv a full details of my itinary...will try to provide more details later.

Moonlight, i'll b gng there in may..so how's the weather like? U mean i can see beautiful flowers all over switzerland? if yes, it'll b great.

Hi Hedwig,

I took the package that u mentioned, from SA Tours. So, to answer ur question.. (thats for my itnerary)

1) very relaxed.. everything going slow and easy
2) yes, need to wake up early, but day ends early as well. The shops in europe don't open till late. So there will still be enough time to sleep. Because of the time difference, the first few nights, u will knock off rather early, and wake up early too. So no problem with that. My whole grp able to wake up early. :D
3) Food was great for mine. Accomodation was good too. As for SA Tour, its a First Class accomodation. So no worries on that!

Hope its useful.

Hi Beth,
actually 1st class in europe is only 4*.. and to see how good it is, also depends, cos in switzerland, the town are like year hundreds years old, so dun expect too much. U get what i mean?

I took their 12 day package, flying by SQ. Paid $7k for 2 pax (include tax).

jovia|ger,
Trafalger packages are better based on comments from frens as well as own research... better accomodation and more relax..

Taking their packaged tour.. just have to get the agent to help you with ticketing..
