Royal Travel & Tours
I have a passion for Switzerland. Having lived in Montreux during high school and worked in the Zurich area as an adult, my enthusiasm for this destination never wanes. I continue to look forward to exploring the cities, towns and villages; traveling throughout the country by Swiss train, interacting with the "locals" and being immersed in this distinctly Swiss culture and lifestyle! I would love to share my knowledge of this beautiful country, its culture and lifestyle with you.
I began my career as an economic developer for The Greater Zurich Area - first in Zurich and later in San Francisco - this provided me the opportunity to know Zurich from the ground up, and to be an expert in all things Swiss. I love being totally immersed in the culture, people, customs and languages of this beautiful country!
My knowledge, education, work and travel experiences have also ensured that I have excellent local contacts who will help create a flawless itinerary for your travel needs and interests. Working together, I'll share with you the three distinct areas of Switzerland, and explain the differences between the French, German, and Italian-speaking regions. Plus, I look forward to telling you all about the best festivals and festivities; where to ski, best local restaurants; and a plethora of off-the-beaten path excursions certain to make you feel just like a "local." Switzerland is certainly more than just chocolate and fondue, and I can get you there.
