A few snapshots
True colors of Switzerland (full day) tour was the highlight of our Switzerland vacation.
David was very thoroughly acquainted with the photogenic areas of Switzerland.
We started in the center of a vineyard with a view of the church and French Alps.
Then we traveled to the top of the Swiss Alps, what a fantastic view. My photos
look like post cards. We saw lake trout swimming in lakes high up in the Swiss Alps.
My wife and I agree this was a great excursion. I would recommend this tour to
everyone that vacations in Switzerland. Thanks Dave for a wonderful experience
