  • I visited here for the first time. The Alpine Route, which takes trolley buses, ropeways, cable cars and various rides, was able to enjoy various mountain views in some places. Because it was a tour, I was able to conquer the Alpine route with peace of mind though it was chased by time by guiding the tour conductor. Moreover, the Alpine route was almost fine though it started by heavy rain at the foot on this day. I was grateful for the whims of the mountain weather. I want to go to a different season this time.

  • I went on a tour of the travel agency. I was satisfied that I was able to ride various vehicles efficiently, but I am a little disappointed that I was pressed for time. Next time, I want to go slowly on my schedule.
