Dear Traveller

Join us on a journey through Switzerland’s most authentic and breathtaking destinations. We will tailor your perfect holiday with our trusted insider knowledge, immersive experiences, hand-picked accommodation, and hidden gems. We know our own country intimately, and work with the best network of hand-picked providers and hotels to guarantee a seamless and inspiring holiday that is as unique as you.

What We Do

  • Genuine, Remarkable Accommodation

    Our choice of accommodation varies from the most typical of chalets to properties that have completely escaped the ordinary, without overlooking the truly unique boutique hotels and the jewels that are a destination of their own.

    We only work with places that we’ve personally seen ourselves, and that exclude a “Je ne sais quoi” of Switzerland, breaking away from the cookie cutter hotel room.

  • Your Choice of Private Transportation

    We can tailor your itinerary to be self-driven, chauffeur guided or experienced by train, depending on what you feel most comfortable with. Our on-site partners, chosen for their quality and service, will guarantee to make this a relaxed and luxurious journey whichever option you choose.

  • Authentic Travel Experiences

    Local expertise is our craft. We connect you with some of the country’s most passionate and fascinating guides. Experience unique, private tours with authentic local flavor. From getting a inside glimpse into the making of the alphorn to a behind-the-scenes visit of a luxury watch manufacture, from city tours to dog-sledding, and even making your own cheese to take home… we will make your travel adventure, unique and memorable.

  • A Destination For Every Occasion

    • Fabulous ski holidays
    • An unforgettable honeymoon
    • Fun for the whole family
    • Chauffeur-guided
    • Self-drive road trip
    • City-hopping
    • Wellness & spa
    • Active & adventure
    • Small group get-together
    • Pre river cruise vacation

  • What our Travellers Say

    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

  • What our Travellers Say

    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

  • What our Travellers Say

    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

  • What our Travellers Say

    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)

  • What our Travellers Say

    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!

CHANTAL
MAX
CHANTAL

Hello, I am Chantal! I am a dual French and Swiss citizen, raised in the United
States, and I can definitely say that I was born with the travel bug. My love
for travel and my immersion in the hospitality industry led me to study business
and hospitality management at the Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne.

Throughout and after my studies, I moved around between Paris, London and Geneva
to work in the operations, sales and marketing teams of some of the world’s most
unique boutique properties.

In our spare time, Max and I would love to not only travel through the many
cultures of the world, but also to uncover what we have in our own backyard.

My passion for adventure and unique experiences led me to create
a more tailored
and personable approach in the travel industry. In 2017 I
co-founded Chantal &
Max, because I wanted to share all wonders of Switzerland that tourists rarely
get to see as they follow the traditional tourist map.

Hi, this is Max! I was born and raised in the region of Lake Léman, one of my
favourite parts of the world still today. With my eye for detail, love for
travel and innate dedication to go above and beyond in ensuring the well-being
of those around me, there could not be a more obvious path than pursuing the
Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne.

I graduated with not only my diploma, but also a hefty number of stamps in my
passport and the girl of my dreams, Chantal. My career to this day, whether in
London, Malta or Switzerland always married my two passions: luxury hospitality
operations and the thrill of entrepreneurship. In 2017, I co-founded Chantal &
Max and so far, I’ve been lucky enough to collect a significant amount of
inspiration as to what makes a holiday unique and unforgettable.
