The location is perfect, only a few minutes’ walk from the financial district (perfect for anyone travelling on business and looking to enjoy a beautiful weekend escape), as well as the Bahnhofstrasse for excellent shopping and high-end restaurants. It’s also a great place to stop en route to the Alps or on your journey home from a skiing holiday.

Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
