Collette Vacations offers a variety of tours that allow groups to comfortably explore the beauty of the Alps in Switzerland and Austria
Veteran Group Leaders know that Europe remains a go-to destination. It doesn’t matter if your group members are savvy world travelers or venturing out of the country for the first time, there’s so much to see in the Old World. Yet, few can match the magnetic combination of history, culture, cuisine and flat out spectacular scenery that you’ll find in the Alps.
And as you know, from medieval gems like Bern, to dynamic cultural centers like the Olympic city of Innsbruck, it’s always better when you share the journey. And whether traveling with lifelong friends or among kindred spirits, group travel remains the most rewarding way to see one-of-a-kind cities like these – Europe at its finest.
Bern, the lovely Swiss capital, continues to be a place where the medieval and the modern come together. Bern’s preserved cityscape offers a window into a different time, especially its city center, deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site. This thriving city is also home to a wide selection of shops, museums and cultural events that draw discerning travelers from around the world. Bern simply feels special as it revels in the past and keeps an eye on the future. From Einstein working on his theory of relativity while living here to the travelers snapping one thrilling photo after another, Bern remains an inspiring European locale.
Innsbruck, the Capital of the Alps, allows travelers to indulge in the urban alpine lifestyle. Already familiar to those who love the international flavor of the Olympics, Innsbruck is the perfect vantage point from which to experience Austria and Bavaria. Here you can embark upon a cultural stroll through museums, art galleries and shops. Afterwards delve into Innsbruck’s history in Old Town with its famous Golden Roof and Baroque churches. Framed by contemporary architecture and stunning mountain vistas, Innsbruck boasts a delightful blend of culture, sport and traditional customs found nowhere else.

Why an Escorted Tour?
On an escorted tour all of the details are taken care of for you. Especially when you are traveling to distant countries, it’s nice to know someone has already been there scouting out the destination, comparing hotels and organizing a comprehensive itinerary. You won’t miss a thing. Combine this with some built-in time to independently explore and you have the best of both worlds.
