Traveller Story: Christmas in an Alpine Wonderland


Carol Wilcockson 

What tour did you travel on?

An Alpine Christmas Adventure 

Why did you select this particular tour?

We had previously done an Albatross Tour and enjoyed it so much that we wanted to experience another one.  We chose this tour because it had only come out the year before and it covered all the places we wanted to see. 

Who did you travel with?

With my husband. 

Have you travelled with us previously?

Yes we have done the Christmas in Grindelwald. 

What was your favourite place/s on your Albatross tour?

We loved it all but our favourites would be Montreaux, Chamonix, Grindelwald and Klosters. 

What was the most amazing thing you saw or did on your Albatross tour?

Snowing on Christmas Day in Klosters and snow shoeing in the mountains. 

Tell us about your most memorable moment on tour?

We had lots of fun on our tour but the most memorable would be Christmas Eve when we all gathered to do our Kris Kringle. My husband dressed up as Santa and I was Mrs Claus, which seemed to give the whole experience a lift and my husband handed out the gifts wishing everybody a Merry Christmas. The locals were laughing and appeared to be enjoying the atmosphere too. 

What was your favourite meal on tour?

All the meals were good but the meals in Klosters were exceptional. 

What advice do you have for anyone interested in travelling on this tour?

The beauty about this tour is that you tend to spend at least 2 nights in one place, sometimes more and it makes a big difference.  The later starts in the morning also a plus when you are a senior.  The knowledge of the Tour Guides are exceptional and having travelled with several other Tour Companies I would say Albatross come out on top without a doubt. 

Would you recommend this tour to family and friends?

Yes I would recommend this tour and any Albatross tour to family and friends. They are so organised and treat you as an individual even though they have many others to look after too. I cannot fault Albatross at all.
