10 Sightseeing Tours in Canton of Valais That You Shouldn't Miss

May 22, 2022 Mollie Coke

At the foot of the Swiss Alps lies Valais, "the valley." This fabled region is a year-round favorite, with spectacular skiing in the winter and superb hiking in summer. The Matterhorn, the Great St. Bernard Pass and Zermatt are the stars of the area, but glaciers, lakes, mountain paths, castle-churches and a wealth of resorts also beckon. Visit L'Hospice du Grand St. Bernard to see the animals who helped the monks rescue travelers or the Fondation Pierre Gianadda, Roman ruins that now house modern art.

During a short stay in Zurich we took a two hour city tour with headphone commentary (due to the virus there we no tour guides available). For us, at two hours the tour was just about the right length and the commentary was interesting and informative with a narrative that extended to both the city and national relevance. A word about the driver - he was friendly and just about the best bus/ coach driver I have ever experienced. He navigated the often narrow streets and turnings superbly and was courteous to other drivers and pedestrians. Whilst we thought this was quite an expensive tour, (most things in Zurich are quite expensive), we did very much enjoy it and would certainly recommend it.....

Recently I had to cancel our train trip through Italy and Switzerland. I was able to obtain a refund on all the Italian train fares but no changes or refunds are permitted by Swiss rail. Swiss train fares are very high by world standards and while I appreciate the terms are non refundable, Swiss rail gives you no opportunity to purchase a refundable/changeable pass. Take care when purchasing a Swiss rail pass as plans can change.

This was absolutely delightful. We couldn't have had a better time,due to our incredible guide,Ulrich. He was very knowledgeable and respectful of our intentions. He made the long ride entertaining as well as educational. We would definitely use his service again. Our only issue was trying to reach your office by phone a couple of days before our trip to confirm and not being able to reach anyone. This created undo stress and it totally unacceptable and needs to be addressed. Thank you for our great guide. Maurice & Teena Nanoia

No issues here so have no concerns that you might be left stranded or that your guide doesn't speak your language or that the tour is somehow altered or changed. However at the price my partner and I were surprised at lack of basic historical facts so check the resume of guide if you are a stickler for detailed knowledge of experiences in this tour.

Excellent service. Here amazing help and support. Many thanks to Swiss Epic Tours. Great location, really pleasant and clean rooms, but the thing that makes this such a good place to stay are the staff. All of the people are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice. We travelled with two six year olds and lots of luggage and despite the stairs up to the elevator this was one of the nicest places we stayed in the four weeks

Visited in 2008 and it was great. Went in 2019 and hardly recognise the inside due to Bond world exhibition. I am a big OHMSS fan ,hence why i visited in 2008 but walking round now is hardly recognisable inside apart from staircase and some parts of the restaurant. This is my personal opinion. If you have never visited before then you will not know the difference, It will still be worth a visit. I shall not return.

This was our second ride on this train. decided to take a winter trip with all the snow as a backdrop with great views. Took the train from Tiefencastle to Brig via Chur. Take your camera for some great pictures. The carriages are very comfortable with plenty of space. You can walk to the restaurant car for a drink or receive table service.
