this trip had a more difficult aspect in that the destinTion was in a very remote spot. It required an overnight stay enroute. All flights and transfers proceeded smoothly. The accomodations were as advertised. The only glitch was that no boarding pass was provided for leg of return flight. It turns out, none was needed, but that was not explained ahead of time.

Swiss Travel helped our travel agent coordinate a nearly 2 week trip in Costa Rica.  A representative met us at the airport, gave us our final itinerary, introduced us to the driver who would be taking us to our first destination, and then checked on us intermittently throughout the trip.  All the drivers and guides who we met were professional and helpful.  While we never needed to contact someone from Swiss Travel for additional assistance, it was comforting to know that we had local contacts in the event of an emergency.

Swiss Travel provided our family with top-quality service throughout our recent vacation in and around Costa Rica. Our adventure spanned three regions - with each and every Swiss Travel Guide and Driver being extremely friendly, knowledgeable and humorous! Staff went above and beyond in describing local cultures, economic vagaries of the country's regions, historical perspectives and environmental policies that every country should aspire. Thank you, Swiss Travel and Valerie Wilson Travel! The DC Z's

Before this trip I had no idea what Costa Rica travel would be like. On arrival to the country SWISS TRAVEL was there with a smile. These people are first class. Driving through the country to our destinations their personal attention was immeasurable. Every time we had a transfer to an excursion or new hotel they were prompt, polite and engaging. We even made a request to stop at a Supermarket which they did!!! Love and thankfulness to all my Swiss Travel people!

These guys were the ultimate professionals. They are always punctual and provide very comfortable vehicles. Since my main bag didn't arrive with me, they didn't hesitate to stop at a suitable place so I could purchase a few things that I would need to get by. They made themselves available for language translation and anything else we needed. They gave us as much information along the way as we wanted. They were friendly and made us feel very welcome in their country. I'd highly recommend them.

When planning for the trip the agent took time to go through all the details of the trip. She answered all questions and even gave restaurant recommendations (which were wonderful). During travel Swiss Travel was there to make changes in transportation needed. And help find missing glasses.
