SwissMade Tours, a new tour company of Picasso Travel, has unveiled its first comprehensive tour programs for Switzerland valid in 2004/2005. To introduce the new programs, SwissMade Tours is offering travelers a low cost vacation in Switzerland for just $149 per person based on double occupancy. The package includes a three day/two night stay in a selection of 18 Swiss cities with daily breakfast, service and all taxes.

Whether interested in majestic mountains, crystal clear lakes, lush hiking trails, cheese heaven or pristine alpine villages, SwissMade Tours offers a variety of independent tours throughout the country such as four days/three nights in Basel, Bern and Zurich; Lake Geneva Region, Lucerne or Ticino priced from $369 per person. To visit more of Switzerland, there are several varied Scenic Wonder Routes itineraries. These tours vary in length of stay from six days/five nights to nine days/eight nights and in price depending on the type of hotel accommodations and tour selected.

Travelers are encouraged to use the simple Swiss Travel System, a unique transportation pass that includes a network of railway, bus and lake steamers. A list of recommended train, bus and boat timetables are included with every SwissMade Tours itinerary. SwissMade Tour travelers also receive a free souvenir gift voucher from Bucherer, a Swiss watchmaker, for every booking.

The new program would not be complete without a fully escorted tour called Swiss Alpine Adventure. It is scheduled for nine days/eight nights and features visits to Zurich, Lucerne, Interlaken, Bern, Gruyeres, Geneva, Zermatt, Lugano, St. Moritz and Vaduz. Beginning at $2099 per person double occupancy, the tour includes round trip air from Boston or New York, arrival transfer, hotel taxes, service charges and portage.

Preparation for these tours included extensive research and travel throughout Switzerland by Picasso Travel staff and consultation with the Switzerland Tourist Board. As a result of this work, SwissMade Tours is the only tour operator in North America that has a tour brochure just on Switzerland.
