I plan all of our trips myself using common tools like Rick Steves' wonderful travel books and DOWNLOAD PDF of our Switzerland Itinerary.

I could attack pretty much any guidebook other than one of his and there would be a collective yawn from the TA community. Let anyone suggest that a Steves guidebook is less than perfect and immediately there is a torrent of posters defending him as though he had been personally attacked. The sight of gaggles of tourists clutching his guides and following his itineraries to the last cobblestone adds to the suggestion that to go somewhere with RS or his books as your guide is almost to go on a pilgrimage. I know I have held back from recommending regions of France and alternatives to the accepted destinations such as Sarlat and Amboise that I love dearly simply because I do not want to be part of creating a RS-like swarming of an area that is still relatively unharmed by masses of tourists. Another reason the less well-known places often do not get mentioned is that mentioning something that does not conform to established RS orthodoxy often leads to vehement and frequently ill-informed rebuttals. Consider, for example, what often happens on the Paris forum if one encourages a poster to stay in some other part of the city than the 1st through 8th and a small part of the 18th arrondissements Report inappropriate content.

Armed with a Rick Steves guidebook and these late-breaking updates, you're set for a great trip!

Guidebook Updates for Switzerland

Across Switzerland Eurail Select Passes are no longer being sold but similarly priced Global Passes still are — see our rail-travel update. The Swiss railway no longer offers same day, station-to-station luggage delivery service.

Service will now take two days and applies to a reduced list of stations. For books printed before April , the following may also apply: Eurail Select Passes are now available as Italy—Switzerland two-country passes among other options.

A bit about our travel style

Since the new, longer, Gotthard Tunnel is now taking passenger trains, choosing one of these departures even without the boat ride is an easy way to ensure that you're not taking the faster, less scenic tunnel route. The Glacier Express and the Brig—Zermatt route are now fully covered by all Eurail passes that include Switzerland but the Glacier Express still requires a paid seat reservation.

Eurail-brand passes now grant a 50 percent discount on most lake boats, rather than covering the full fare but boats on Lakes Thun and Brienz are fully covered by Eurail passes. Single-country Swiss Travel Passes still cover all lake boats in Switzerland.

The tour also includes a city tour of Lucerne as well as the Ice Grotto. We love this tour because it takes you to all the best sights, but also allows you to explore Lucerne at your own pace.

Plus, the boat ride back to Zurich is stunning. Day Trip to Jungfraujoch- If you want to see the top of Europe, this day tour from Zurich to Jungfraujoch is incredible.

Day Trip to Grindelwald and Interlaken — Having explored the region of Grindelwald, I can honestly say that it is nothing short of beautiful so if you have the time, I highly suggest this tour!

Make the Most of the Mountains The Swiss Alps offer a plethora of activity from skiing and snowboarding to hiking and trekking, so make the most of the mountains while in Switzerland! The Matterhorn offers some of the best skiing in the world and some of the best views! If you like to hike, head to the city of Lucerne and take on Mount Pilatus. The trails up to the top may be tough but the breathtaking views of the alps when you reach the peak are more than rewarding.

Go Lake Hopping Think of chasing waterfalls but with lakes instead.

Switzerland is full of some of the most beautiful, glistening lakes in the whole of Europe, so take some time to visit some of the best and see those crystal clear waters for yourself. To name a few, Lake Constance that borders Germany, Austria and Switzerland is worth a visit, as is Lake Maggiore, a great place for windsurfing, and Lake Geneva , a picturesque place surrounded by relaxing spa towns.

London, York, Bath, and Edinburgh are the most interesting cities in Britain. Belfast, Liverpool, and Glasgow are quirky enough to be called interesting.

Oxford pales next to Cambridge, and Stratford-upon-Avon is little more than Shakespeare's house — and that's as dead as he is. Extra caution is merited in southwest England, a minefield of tourist traps. The British are masters at milking every conceivable tourist attraction for all it's worth. Stay away from booby traps like the Devil's Toenail a rock that looks just like a These are among Europe's most overrated spots.

Geneva, one of Switzerland's largest and most sterile cities, gets the "nice place to live, but I wouldn't want to visit" award. It's pleasantly situated on a lake — just like Buffalo is.

While it's famous, name familiarity is a rotten reason to go somewhere. If you want a Swiss city, see Bern or Luzern instead.

Don't go: Places to avoid in Europe

Germany's famous Black Forest disappoints more people than it excites. If it were all Germany offered, it would be worth seeing.

For Europeans, any large forest is understandably a popular attraction.
