Who We Are


Alexander Mowat — Hastings, New Zealand
A DIFFERENT VIEW treated me to a "behind the scenes" look at the beautiful, lively, and history-filled Vaud region in Switzerland. I would never have found the places we visited. They are not in guidebooks. It was most important being with someone who is part of, and enthusiastic about what is happening on a daily basis in the area.

Anna and Tony Olislaeger — Bull Creek, Western Australia
Our visit to the Olympic Museum and the beautiful, non-touristy lakeside villages that were founded in Roman times was very special. There is nothing that old where we come from. We would never have seen or learned about those villages with a tour group. We really appreciated seeing the toblerones and then receiving the recipe for the chocolate mousse made with chocolate toblerones.

Bev and Dave Dewar — Bristol, England
This is not the usual guided tour—it is very personal. Trish instinctively knew what would be of interest and her local knowledge took us to places that guide books don’t tell you about. From a mountainside restaurant (without electricity) lunching in the sun to the music of cow bells surrounded by snow capped peaks to the shores of Lake Geneva and its pretty lakeside villages. All the in betweens; sun soaked hillsides with vineyards and picturesque Chateaux, sampling the local delicacies, sipping wine and lunching on Malakoffs.  

Paul Spencer Sochaczewski — Givrins, Switzerland
We went on A DIFFERENT VIEW hike with Pierre Zuppiroli, a licensed Mountain Leader, who took us to the summit of La Tournette, a 2,300 peak above Annecy. He’s a superb guide, knows his plants, animals and geology extremely well. The Annecy region was new to me, and Pierre was a skilled and friendly guide. He speaks excellent English—ask him about his work to save the wolves. A DIFFERENT VIEW is quite flexible about creating an itinerary to meet your needs and interests. Quite a valuable service, particularly if you have visitors.

Leigh Stevens — London, England
Whether it's hiking up a mountain, learning about flora and fauna or eating a gourmet meal, the experience with A DIFFERENT VIEW is absolutely unique and unforgettable!

Joc and Donald Walkinton — Taupo, New Zealand
Experiencing the drama, the colour and the chaos of an ancient Lenten festival or the unexpected discovery of an old architecturally perfect village—a day or even an hour with A DIFFERENT VIEW and Trish locks unforgettable images into ones memory bank.

Brona Simons — Geneva, Switzerland
I have lived in the Geneva region now for 10 years but during my tour with A DIFFERENT VIEW  I saw and did so many things I never knew existed. It was fun and relaxed but we still did a lot and I learned so much about where I live and the culture around me.
