Vagarwala's 7 days trip to GenevaWe booked our trip through Centaur vacations. I personally feel Kusum is the best you've got. She planned our entire trip along with Rishab. Apart from a few lows, the entire trip was amazing. We have absolutely no complaints in Switzerland. Yes, our hassals began in Paris. The city tour of Paris was not well planned (I've spoken to kusum about this) and the hotel booked in paris wasn't upto the mark as well. But again, we all are really happy that we chose centaur vacations and will look for to do the same in future. Mount Titlis day. The entire day we spent in titlis. It was just wonderful.
