One Day with Max

Tailor-made Experiential Day Tours around Lake Geneva & Beyond

‘Max was our host & guide, and he gave us an unforgettable tour. It’s probably not an exaggeration to say it was the most fun we’ve had on any European vacation in over a decade…’ Dustin, USA

Imagine seeing Switzerland through the eyes of a local, like when you visit a friend abroad and they take you their favorite places – it’s only then that you truly connect with the heart of a country and its genuine spirit. There’s nothing quite like being face to face with the knowledge and passion people have of their own country.

My name is Max, and I was born and bred in the stunningly diverse region of Lake Geneva. Let me make your vacation one you will never forget by whisking you off the tourist grid for an extraordinary private day tour with local flavour designed just for you. We’re lucky to have some of Switzerland’s most fascinating and fairytale-like regions right on our doorstep, from the UNESCO-protected Lavaux vineyards overlooking the turquoise-coloured lake and the French Alps to the untouched alps and traditional villages of the Simmental, the Pays d’En Haut and medieval Gruyères. Upon request, we also craft private excursions to Villars and the Glacier 3000, as well as Chamonix and Annecy in neighbouring France.

Immerse yourself in our proud traditions, meet our passionate locals and their unique personalities, taste our favorite specialties around a typical lunch, visit our iconic sights and experience the most magical landscapes as I take you through the backroads that you won’t find in your guidebook. Each journey is shaped to you with the examples below and goes beyond the traditional tick-the-landmark-off-the-list day tour: we take you where you want to go, before you knew you wanted to go there. Just let us know what you’re looking for, and we’ll make it happen! 

Join me in transcending Switzerland’s boundaries to discover its many untold treasures.

A bientôt,

Max
