The story behind Typically Swiss Tours. In this candid and in-depth episode of Tourpreneur, I chat with Chris Wilson, a European tour operator in the beautiful country of Switzerland, who has a very inspiring story I’d like to share with you.
Chris was a prominent administrator at UEFA, the football authority in Europe, and unfortunately was laid off in his mid-forties.
When looking for another career job, Chris realized he had a passion and knowledge of the Swiss Countryside, decided to buy himself a van, and start his own business as a tour operator.
After Chris was laid off, he reorganized his life and switched gears to giving tours in Switzerland.
Chris loves his newly found career and is passionate about providing people a great experience in a beautiful, stunning, breathtaking, wonderful country with lakes and mountains.
“I came up with the idea to start a company with my wife, I bought a vehicle, I made a website about two and a half years ago, and the rest is history to some extent.”
