    • Had a wonderful time.

      • Service
        Schedules went well, group size was good. ****** did a great job and was very knowledgeable. I would recommend Collette to others and would travel with them again.
      • Tour
        Had a great time, lovbed many things about the trip.
    • Too rushed and hurried for my taste.

      • Service
        I was disappointed in this trip compared to other trips with Collette. It was too rushed and too short stays in any one place. One day in Vienna is ridiculous and the same can be said for Salzburg. Some of the excursions and offerings were useless (stop at Melk Abbey.) the time on the Danube was nice but I would have preferred that time be in Salzburg. I personally can't stand when the tour guide gives her information on history, architecture, geology etc. by starting with asking you questions. This must be a taught instruction method, but it really turns me off, and is designed to make you feel stupid if you don't know all the answers and them a freaking genius for reading it off to you. Stop doing that. In addition, Collette owes us money for an excursion that didn't have enough sign up. I don't want a credit because I'm not sure we will travel with them again.

        The purchases, which I guess are the extra offerings were all good. but the best thing we did was the railway trip up to Gorner Grat which was not offered by Collette and without that why even go to Zermatt? Collette owes us money back because one tour be purchased did not have enough sign up. I do not want credit, as we are not sure we will take another Collette tour.
    • Great tour...incredible scenery.

      • Service
        Well organized....very good group dinners...hotels were very good and the tour director Marta was excellent. Trip was a great balance of Austria...southern Germany and Switzerland. So much to see...every day was a scenic adventure.
      • Tour
        The scenery...the hotels...the group dinners were all first class. Our tour manager was very organized and knowledgeable. Have to say Mt. Pilatus was the most dramatic.
