Treat Yourself To A Holiday You’ll Want To Talk About Time and Time Again.
No Hassle. No Crowds. No Compromise.

If...

  • Your time is too valuable to get lost searching the overwhelming world of the internet
    • We’re avid travellers ourselves, so we know how you feel: the internet can be daunting with the overwhelming amount of information it offers. It’s easy to waste hours researching, untangling what’s relevant, and then making all of the reservations… And it can be all the more frustrating with time being so rare and our most precious asset. It’s a fact: planning a trip can be an extensive and confusing process.
    • Luckily, Swiss travel planning is our specialty. That means we seamlessly craft and coordinate every aspect of your holiday in Switzerland: from your custom-designed itinerary to your noteworthy accommodations, your curated activities and everything in between. We’re basically your one-stop-shop for everything Switzerland, so that you can spend your precious time doing the things you actually love.
  • You want to travel off the beaten path to capture the essence of Switzerland and enjoy a real insider experience.
    • We know that one of the worst things you can have while travelling is the famous “fear of missing out” and feeling like too much of a tourist. You want to really connect to the real spirit of Switzerland, far from the crowds of tour buses. You want to put yourself in the shoes of a local, and see our country for what it really is. To sum it up, you want to be a traveller, and not a tourist.
    • We live, work and breathe Switzerland. Thanks to our on-site proximity and our regular travels through Switzerland’s most secret backroads, we are able to guide you straight to the essentials and give you the most relevant insight. Our mission is to give you a view of our country that reaches way beyond the typical tourist map.
  • You consider peace of mind a requisite for any successful trip.
    • We know how stressful planning a trip and travelling to a country that is not yours can be. Which of the online advice should I follow? Which hotel or activity is actually worth it? How long should we stay in this area? What if there is a problem once we get there? You sometimes even feel like you’re gambling your precious holidays, not sure of what you’ll find when you get there.
    • …Enter your personal Swiss travel experts! We specialise in luxury journeys that run like Swiss clockwork, because as a couple, that is also how we love to travel. We don’t take any chances: we’ve slept in the beds, eaten at the restaurants, tested our guides, tried the activities and know just the perfect cinematic photoshops that are worth your time. Our guests trust us for constantly scouting the country, to maintain and develop our network of certified, high-quality partners. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey. Planning a trip to Switzerland has never been this seamless!
  • Your holidays are too precious not to be extraordinary. Don’t gamble them! 
    • We know that you worked too hard for your vacation in Switzerland not to go above and beyond the average one. Who doesn’t want to bring back long-lasting memories from their trip? They’re honestly the best souvenir you can take home, right?
    • We share not only a luxury hospitality background, but also a passion for exquisite service. Genuinely taking care of people to the smallest detail and spicing their trip up with surprises is kind of our thing. In addition, we believe that true luxury is giving you access to what the typical tourist does not have access to. That’s why we uniquely-craft many of our experiences and private guided tours, to make your journey as unique as you are and give you memories you can’t wait to share with your loved ones back home.

Then you’re in the right place!

We are your locally-based Swiss travel experts here to give you insider access to the Switzerland we know and love with a WOW factor.

Our all-in-one travel planning service includes bespoke itinerary design, uniquely-crafted authentic experiences, private guided tours, on-site concierge services and everything in between

We Love To See Our Travellers Happy

  • Let me start by saying – AMAZING! The level of service we received with Chantal & Max was unprecedented! This trip was special, as we wanted to combine our love (and business) of cheese and desire to see this beautiful country not as a tourist, but as something more more unique – personal, fully customized, and off the beaten track.

    The service they provide YOU CANNOT DO YOURSELF – no matter how much research, planning or know how. They have not only the experience, the personal connections, but more importantly a level of service and ability to think outside of the box that transform your regular holiday to something magical. They hit the mark on every single level, and we will absolutely use their services for any and all future trips back to Switzerland!

    Jennifer & Tim, Colorado, USA – January 2020

  • If you ever visit Switzerland and want an amazing experience you MUST call Chantal and Max. These guys are the best. I had a free day between business meetings and wanted to see the “real” Switzerland. Something off the beaten track. Chantal set up an amazing day and Max executed the memorable day flawlessly. By the end of the day I felt like I had known Max for much longer than 10 hours. Thank you guys for allowing me to see the true “heart” of Switzerland. I am sure I will be back to spend more time together.

    Harris, Pennsylvania, USA – November 2019

  • Chantal and Max endeavored to understand our trip objectives and preferences, provided their valuable views and suggestions. We engaged them for 4 days and it turned out to be absolutely experiential. The quality of the places they brought us to we’re fantastic, truly local experience and engaging. Chantal does great planning and is detail oriented whilst Max delivers a highly personalized experience and goes the extra mile in every way he could. Thank you Chantal & Max for delivering your brand promise and for going out of your way to create a memorable travel experience for us.

    Aileen & Henry, Singapore – October 2019

  • Chantal & Max are an extraordinary duo we can only recommend to orchestrate unforgettable moments, filled with emotion. The family tour they crafted for us was absolutely priceless.

    Mickael & Frederique-Morgane, France – August 2019

  • Chantal and Max showed us Switzerland in a way that no brochure, picture, or ordinary tour could ever fully capture. From sweeping vistas to personal experiences with locals, they unveiled the true beauty of Switzerland – one perfectly tailored adventure at a time.

    Natalie, Georgia, USA – July 2019

  • We had the most amazing trip to Switzerland and would highly recommend Chantal & Max. They took time to understand our needs and interests, and this resulted in a thoughtful itinerary that exceeded our expectations. The vacation was exquisite!

    Lynda, Minnesota, USA – June 2019

  • …thank you for all your hard work setting up our fantastic tour of your beloved Switzerland!
    Your taste in restaurants and hotels is exquisite !!!! We loved them all !! You two were absolutely awesome! We all are very grateful for the fabulous trip you put together for us.

    Dean, California, USA – May 2019

  • Chantal & Max have been great to work with. Executing the travel itinerary by listening to our request and bring it to fruition. We were very grateful for their attention to detail, making the necessary modifications once our plans unexpectedly changed was priceless!! Thanks, for continuing to exceed our expectations and creating a memorable experience.

    Antoine, Texas, USA (return traveller) – March 2019

  • This is the best agency I have ever used for planning travel experiences and adventures. Chantal was kind, organized and responsive when planning our trip in Switzerland. Max was our host and guide and he gave us an unforgettable tour. It’s probably not an exaggeration to say that it was the most fun we’ve had on any European vacation in over a decade… An exceptional experience! We will definitely be planning our next trips with Chantal & Max.

    Dustin, Massachusetts, USA – March 2019

  • It was an exceptional experience. We stayed in hotels and locations that we would not have found on our own. It was seamless and a most memorable trip for all of us. We would highly recommend Chantal & Max.

    Sarah-Kate, New York, USA – January 2019

  • When you visit a country where you know someone, you see that country like no tourist would ever see it. You see places and things perhaps known only to local residents and you hear the stories of what they know about their homeland and growing up there. Because of Chantal & Max, this is the kind of experience we had on our Swiss journey. A most memorable, unmatched time!

    Rashida & Frank, Florida, USA – September 2018

  • We felt cared for throughout our planning and holiday. The hotels and activities were wonderful and felt exclusive. We very rarely had to deal with busloads of tourists and enjoyed interacting more with the locals to get a better idea of life in Switzerland rather than just checking things-to-see of a list. I wish we could find a team like yourselves for every one of our holidays!

    Jennifer, South Africa – September 2018

  • Chantal & Max are both knowledgeable and ethical. They are a true pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend them to fellow travelers.

    Virginia, California, USA – June 2018

  • Chantal & Max’s travel services lived up to their mission of providing bespoke tours that give you the opportunity to interact with the true roots and artisans of Switzerland. We gave you a hard challenge of creating a Sunday adventure activity and elegant meal for eight and you delivered spectacularly. Additionally we had a short window of time to see and experience another part of the country, I didn’t have the time or knowledge to research all the logistics and you made it so easy.

    Carlene, Oregon, USA – August 2021

Meet Your Swiss Travel Experts, Chantal & Max!

CHANTAL

I’m Chantal, the one you’ll be in touch with most of the time as we plan your trip!
I am Swiss (where I probably where I get my Germanic organisation and timeliness from!), grew up in the US, have a background in luxury hospitality.
Through my fair share of travels around the world, I came to realise that my best memories were not those hopping from one landmark to the next; but rather the stories shared with locals, finding myself in the most breath-taking spots with no tour buses in sight, tasting local cuisine in a mom and pop restaurant and fully immersing myself in the culture.
I always felt this side of Switzerland was rarely shown to visitors – sure Interlaken and Luzern are on everyone’s list, but what about all the other hidden gems that make Switzerland tick?
We also know how time consuming it can be looking for them online, getting lost on the daunting internet with no guarantee of what you will find when you get here. That is why we decided to leave the luxury hospitality industry in London and come home with a mission of giving you back your precious time, while showing you the Switzerland we intimately know and love… one unforgettable memory at a time.

MAX

I’m Max, and I’ll be your host, tour guide and local friend here in Switzerland!
Born and raised in the beautiful region of Lake Geneva, I always knew professional yet genuine hospitality was in my blood. Indeed, I am the happiest when I am taking care of people and see the smile on their faces. That’s why I pursued my studies at the Hospitality School in Lausanne (where I met Chantal) and then went on to the start-up and luxury hospitality industry in Switzerland and in the UK.
I believe that luxury today isn’t found in the shape of a marble bathroom, but rather in the attention to the smallest of details, having your needs foreseen and enjoying access to the type of experiences that others don’t have access to. And that’s what I hope to give you too as I show you my favourite spots, locals and traditions, because you shouldn’t have to feel like a tourist. Your holidays are just too precious to be anything but perfect.
