Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, urgently need your suggestions to plan my first ever trip to Europe. Please find below the tenative details of my trip and things I have taken into consideration. Accordingly feel free to fill me in with your revered advices.

Kindly note - I will be travelling with my wife.

I have 27th June to 5th of July to plan my trip. Broadly I am flying in on 27th (London to Zurich) and flying out on 5th July (from Paris)

Jun 27th (Sat) - Plan to fly to Zurich early morning. Need to decide if I should stay over for the night or directly headover to Interlaken for the night.
Filler - Heard Few things like visit to choc factory/walk around the city chapel or river can be done in few hours. If there is anything else worthwile to do around then I can stay over for the night and leave for Interlaken/Murren next day.

27th night/28th morning to 30th - Planning to stay at some beautiful hill top budget hotel (3*)/ backpackers/ some acco booked through airbnb, for next 2-3 days. Need to plan this in more detail
Fillers - Plan to goto Jungfrau. Also look forward to do one of those countryside trek. Not sure if the costly sport activities such as diving/gliding/etc. will fit the budget. Other than that not quite sure how to spend the time most effectively (Suggestions pls!)

1st July - I have whole of this day to kill
Fillers - If possible wish to do one of those panoramic train tour such as Glacier/Golden pass etc. Someone suggested Bern has very beautiful valley landscape (change from the hilly terrain near Interlaken)

2nd July - Plan to visit Paris. Either can take the night train(to save time, hopefully will get reservation and cost difference is not huge) or travel early morning from Geneva/Bern/etc.
For next 3 days will be in Paris 2-5.

Fillers - . I am thinking of doing the regular - Eiffel, Louvre, D'Orsay, Disney(1 day), River siene tour, city bus tour. Kindly suggest whether they seem fine or I can better plan it in the 3 days of stay in Paris.

Thanks a ton. Kindly let me know if you need any other necessary details

Cheers.
