Meals served late after 7:30 pm. and we were hungry before meals. No healthy food was available for snacks. Limited dinner menus with few vegetables. Even salads were just a few bites and a sprig of decoration. Husband said he had one decently prepared meal, that was just mediocre. Little to no entertainment. No fitness room or pool. Tiny cabin with uncomfortable bed. Guides sometimes great but too often not interesting, just talking non-stop to fill “air time”. We had little time to enjoy stops on our own. Mostly standing in place yo listen to guides with little walking. All in all a great disappointment. Out last stop, a hotel in Zurich was an over paved industrial park that was kind of smelly, with all attractions an hour away at least on foot and no nice restaurants close to our hotel that weren’t ridiculously expensive. Hotel itself was not a tourist hotel at all but a business hotel where people with an expense account might eat. Many guests talked about how disappointed they were at basically being dumped in this unhappy location to end our vacation. A real sour not to our vacation.
