Best meal:Breakfast at Our Chalet included oyster cracker shaped corn cereal which was a hit with kids. But the best meal was traditional Roesti with cheese, sort of a cross between scalloped potatoes and potato fondue.
Best deal: The conference facility Our Chalet provided room, board, and activities such as zip-lining, rock climbing, and night hiking for one all-inclusive, affordable price (930 Swiss Francs for 9 days).
Best time to go: June was wonderful! It wasn't too hot to do lots of hiking but it was warm enough to swim in ponds and lakes, although the water was freezing.
Best travel tip:
One of the girls was pickpocketed within 15 minutes of arriving in Zurich; luckily it was on the very last day. Keep your money and passport in a moneybelt in the crowded cities.
