Emmanuel Pieraccini was born on the shores of Lake Geneva. He spent his childhood in Florence, Tuscany, Italy. His taste for traveling and discovering new places started there. His French-Italian background and his strong self-taught spirit then took him to the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Valley.
At this time, he started developing an in-depth knowledge of the French and Swiss Alps. His atypical career led him to work in the Riviera Vaudoise in Switzerland, as a driver and concierge in some of the most luxurious hotels. His love of the many enchanting sites dotting the banks of Lake Geneva and his experiences in travel design and planning allowed him to fully develop his present activity.
Emmanuel Pieraccini created Swiss Private Tours in 2014. Since then, he has been an independent professional limousine taxi driver and travel concierge in Montreux. With the help of his many multilingual partners, he will accompany you to the most beautiful attractions of the region, and organize customized trips covering several days in Switzerland, France, Italy and other major European cities.

Beautiful Fall Castle Tour Review of:
Gruyeres is a small town located not too far from Montreux – an easy day trip. Our tour started with a castle tour and the grounds which have been somewhat modernized, but still very beautiful. We also enjoyed a fondue lunch at a local restaurant. The train ride back to Montreux was very scenic.
Switzerland with Emmanuel
Had a terrific 5 days in the Montreaux area with Emmanuel as part of a grandparent trip with our 10 year old grandson. Great organization, logistics and listening, especially when it came to the type of outings an adventurous and athletic boy wants to engage in. The highlights; paragliding from the top of the Alps, walking with St. Bernards through the mountains, great picnics supplied by Emmanuel, etc. I highly recommend his services.
Best Tour Guide We’ve Ever Had
Emmanuel was so knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs, we really couldn’t have asked for a better experience or tour guide. He was truly concerned about providing us the best service available even if it meant a very long day for him and extra effort. Just a wonderful experience in Montreux. We have traveled quite a bit and used guides before, but we’ve never had a better guide or person than Emmanuel.
Extraordinary Experience !
Emmanuel did an outstanding job during the Gruyere and Chocolate tour with our family! He went above and beyond to keep us on schedule, suggested stopping by the vineyard for pictures, and always kept an eye on us bringing us umbrellas when it started to rain. Lastly, Emmanuel managed to helped us surprise our Mother with the Queen Experience as well as taking us to the Freddy Mercury memorial. The overall trip was around 10 wonderful hours full of attention to detail and great memories! Thank you for everything Emmanuel!
