    My wife and I are trying to decide between the Alps and Dolomites vs the Switzerland trip July 2019. We were on the Warsaw to Prague trip last summer which was our first Tauck trip and we loved it. We were planning to do the Switzerland trip when I read a few reviews from prior travellers who felt there was too much bus/train time and that it was too rushed with two night maximim stays per hotel and one night in St. Moritz. One reviewer said he did back to back Alps/Dolomites followed by the Switzerland trip. He greatly enjoyed the Alps but was disappointed with the Switzerland trip. I understand there is great variability in what people are looking for and how they percieve trips. The Switzerland trip is classified as activity level 2 and pace 3 while the Alps is activity 3 and pace 2. We are interested in being able to get out and walk more but would love the swiss scenery. I am sure we would have a great time on either of these trips but would like to hear from those who have experienced these trips personally or know of those that have. I would especially like to know whether you feel that this trip should be avoided by people who want to be fairly activepeople who want to be have at least an hour a day to be out and active would be disappointed by this trip. Thank you in advance.

The tiny archipelago of volcanic islands 600 miles west of South America in the vast Pacific is unique in many ways. But it seems a most unlikely place to alter the course of history. And yet, in a very real way it did. It can really be said that these islands played an important role in shaping the destiny of humankind.

Another year has ended and we are at the beginning of a new one. They flip by faster and faster, it seems.
