M20640 offers premium guided hiking and walking tours in Switzerland. We have been the lowest priced premium tour company for 18 years. The company was founded by Jeanne Joslin and David Miltenberger in 1992. M20640 has offered guided trips to Switzerland, the English Lakes District, and the Canadian Rockies in the past, but we currently only offer guided hiking trips in Switzerland and France. After training with David and Jeanne for two seasons, Justin and Rebekka Joslin took over ownership of M20640 in 2009. Justin and Rebekka currently teach high school in New Hampshire, and therefore they only operate M20640 tours during the summer. Our experienced guides have taken the time to learn the trails, towns, hotels, and transportation systems that we use in Switzerland.
Questions and Answers
M20640 offers premium guided hiking tours in Switzerland and France with professional guides, 1st class travel, and three and four star accommodations.

1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?

The company was started by two former teachers, David Miltenberger and Jeanne Joslin, who wanted to share their love for nature and hiking with others. David and Jeanne founded M20640 19 years ago when they started taking students from their high school on canoeing trips in the Algonquin Provincial Park in Canada. It quickly grew into a successful business and they expanded to offer tours in such wonderful places as Banff National Park in Canada, the Lake District of England, and the Alps of Switzerland. M20640 is a family owned business and is currently owned and operated by the nephew of the founders, Justin, and his wife, Bekka.

3. What does your company specialize in?

Our company specializes in researching, planning, and guiding premium hiking tours in Switzerland and France. The guides learn the transportation systems, build relationships with each hotel, and explore each trail so that our clients do not have to worry about the logistics of a European hiking vacation.

5. What is your most popular travel package and why?

Our most popular travel package is our Three Cultures Tour because it allows our clients to experience so much of Switzerland in two full weeks of hiking and traveling. We visit three distinct regions of Switzerland that each have their own history, culture, and landscape. Some other key features of this tour include a ride on the famous Glacier Express train from St. Moritz to Zermatt, awe-inspiring views of the Matterhorn, delightful cuisine prepared at our fabulous hotels, and breathtaking alpine wildflowers.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

"You've boosted my confidence, shown me the beauty of the world and started a new adventure. I couldn't ask for more in life. Thank you for helping me renew. I've loved this trip and meeting you."

We went on four M20640 trips in Switzerland between 2001 and 2008. You know how great a company is when you continue to go on return trips with them. Bekka and ... view more Justine, Jeanne and David, they are all great guides, and we enjoyed so much the hikes they took us on, the incredible scenery, and the reasonable price of the trips. Thanks to their great training and guiding, we have gained the skills to travel and hike in Europe on our own. We will be forever grateful.

My wife Janet and I have taken 2 hiking trips to Switzerland with M20640, first with the founders, Jeanne and David, and then a 2nd one that included Bekka and ... view more Justin as co-leaders. Both trips were fantastic for the hiking, scenery, relationships with the local innkeepers, food, beers!, flexibility and friendships in the group, and last but not least, the leadership and personable nature of the guides. We would not hesitate to go again, and their new trip to Chamonix sounds enticing.

Wonderful experience! Would absolutely book with them again. Great itineraries and accommodations. Choice of easier/more challanging routes each day. All travel ... view more using the great Swiss rail system. Owners of the company(young couple) are the guides and do it because they love hiking the Alps. Couldn't have been better.
