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.

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.
