The centerpiece locations of "Operation EURO2010" are in Switzerland, and for our location stops, not easily accessed by most tourists on an European vacation. First stop, is Locarno, site of the Verzasca Dam, or better known as the "Goldeneye" bungee jump stunt opening. We will spend several hours at this location while brave agents undergo "agent training" (not affiliated with Theme Party People or Globus, of course, with a nod to our battery of attorneys).

 

 

From there, we drive the Furka and Gotthardt Pass regions, locations for "Goldfinger" and the Reichenbach Falls, site of the final struggle between Sherlock Holmes and his nemesis, Professor Moriarty.

We arrive at the beautiful lakeside town of Interlaken and begin our journey to the  alpine restaurant,Piz Gloria, outside Lautenbrunnen. Piz Gloria is considered one of the meccas of Bond lore, seen as the mountaintop lair of Blofeld in the film "On His Majesty's Secret Service". Our group will be feted to a day of exclusive site accesses, a private party in the 007 film theater, lunch in the rotating restaurant (where Bond flirts with the Angels of Death).  We will begin with a tour through Lautenbrunnen for the Bond escape scenes in the beautiful Alpine village, and from there, take our cable car ascent to the Schilthorn and our day at Piz Gloria.

 

This location in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland is not easily accessed and only EURO2010 Bond Bourne and Beyond will have the exclusiveness of locations, access and entertainment.

Our hotel for two nights, is the stellar Beau Rivage in Interlaken, another 5 star masterpiece from our Bond lifestyle tour, situated at the foothills of the Swiss Alps.The many international guests are rapturous about the exclusiveness of Lindner Grand Hotel Beau Rivage and the location with its glorious view of the Jungfraujoch amid the imposing Swiss mountains.

Excellent service, old world charm and culinary highlights make up a hotel concept for discriminating people with a love of tradition. In the past year, the hotel underwent a very luxurious reconstruction.

Elegant rooms with a lovely view on the unique mountains or the deep green, clear ice water of the Aare river make the guests feel at ease.

Most of the rooms have a balcony or a loggia inviting to stay a while. One can only imagine Bond sipping on a Vesper at the oak bar. We cap our activities in Interlaken with a funicular train trip up to the Harder Klum for a spectacular authentic Swiss dinner, high up in the Alps.

From Interlaken, we continue on to Geneva, for a day of Omega watch shopping, an optional tour of the Castle Chillon, where Lord Byron was held captive. Our agents can spend the rest of the day on Lake Geneva, take a quick trip up to Montreux Jazz country, visit Charlie Chaplin's home in Vevey or enjoy the local wines at a cafe. The evening is all Bond lifestyle again and yours to enjoy the bustling nightlife of Geneva; cozy nightclubs and jazz, fine dining and streets with a distinctive European flair.  Our stay in Geneva is at the very chic, Hotel Royal. 

The contrasting combination of heritage and innovation distinguish this traditional hotel. Inspired by a neoclassical architectural style the new Hotel Royal offers a cocoon of homely warmth, voluptuous comfort and accessible luxury.

And the next morning, we board the TGV Bullet train for Paris, for three days of sightseeing the City of Lights,  touring the Chateaus from the James Bond films and a finale party with European Bond fans.
