I had an amazing time with Valeriya and her dog! We got to see some really beautiful views and I was able to enjoy myself being a solo traveler. I highly suggest dog lovers and those into hiking to do this experience

Valeriya was so friendly and I had a great time on our journey together. We jam packed so much into one day that I would not have been able to plan on my own in Geneva. The hike was stunning, Gruyere was charming, and the wine country was beautiful. All of these activities together, plus transportation, would have cost a fortune to plan on my own. Valeriya and Baloo were great company and I would definitely recommend this experience to my friends!

I'm really glad I booked the experience with Valeria! The landscapes were amazing and she took some really nice pictures of us. We were three people in total and it felt like hiking with friends, not at all like something touristic. Her dog was really cute and the restaurant we stayed in served very nice cheese Fondue. The highlight was a glass of wine on top of the vineyards in Lavaux while the sun sets over the lake, which made for a breathtaking view. I can really recommend this experience for everyone in love with nature, hiking and the beautiful landscape of Switzerland.

I really liked the variety of activities- the waterfall hike, the tasty fondue at Gruyères castle, the walking in Lavaux. They were all very nice. And Baloo was very friendly and well behaved.

Highly recommend this trip! Valeriya is very friendly, knowledgeable, and her dog is super cute. The hiking route overall was not steep or difficult, so it was perfect to appreciate the wonderful scenery. Also, the fondue place for lunch was very delicious and affordable. Thank you Valeriya!

A perfect day with an interesting combination of activities. Hiking in a beautiful gorge up to a restaurant where we enjoyed fondue. Next to the beautiful town of Gruyeres where Valeriya took us to lovely places with few tourists. Finally to the amazing vineyards of Lavaux-stunning views and wine tasting. Felt as though I was seeing places that locals love!
