Programmes: Tour Themes
VC Tours can offer a wide variety of Programmes all-year-round suited for groups small to large, young or old.
Whatever way you would prefer to discover Switzerland, our Programmes focus on many areas of popular interest. Equally, we can design a specifc Tour for your group.
CULTURE & TRADITIONS – MUSEUMS AND CASTLES
Switzerland, home to 8 million people and 4 different languages boasts an impressive past and culture. With influences from all parts of Europe as well as it’s very own home-grown traditions, Switzerland in a melting pot of different and interesting smells, tastes, and sights.
Chocolate, cheese, and watches may be some of the things that come to mind when thinking of Switzerland. These are certainly things that bring immense pride to the Swiss population and great joy to the tourists who consume them.
Swiss Chocolate in particular is possibly the most famous chocolate in the world with the oldest factory being that of Fraçois-Louis Cailler opened near Vevey in 1819. The Cailler factory is on the agenda for those thinking about the Culture and Traditions theme with a tour of the factory and of course some chocolate tasting!!
Amongst Switzerland’s amazing landscapes lies its hidden gems in the form of extremely well-preserved castles. A history of peace and neutrality has allowed for these castles to remain very similar to their original state when built in the middle ages and therefore act as a time-capsule and a fantastic chance to learn about this point in time.
VC Swiss Tours’ base at the Swiss Alpine Centre in Leysin, provides the perfect location to visit 4 of Switzerland’s most impressive castles in the French-Speaking part of Switzerland, most notably that of the Chateau de Chillon along the shore of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva).
Visits can include:
