has it !

Samantha has a lot of knowledge of both the history and culture of Switzerland; super cool and funny, and we had a spectacular time. The views and the weather super good. One of my girls had gotten sick in Milan, food poisoning, and Samantha was very understanding and flexible. We ended up doing it all. Many assertive recommendations, restaurants, places to visit, she even helped us buy the train tickets to Lucerne. The truth is that we loved meeting her.
