We are signed up for a trip to Switzerland in May (2013)
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
We loved our trip to France. Our home town of Pernes les-Fontaine and our vacation rental, Gamet, was lovely. We liked its location and amenities and were quite happy that the owners were not at all intrusive. If you prefer a host who is right there all the time, I'd suggest finding a different host.
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
We don't have specific hobbies. Our favorite things to do are: 1. explore the surrounding area by walking/hiking 2. have conversations with the local people 3. visit places of local interest such as museums, markets 4. find good restaurants (and wine) 5. take pictures 6. look at shops and sometimes buy locally made products 7. relax and enjoy the scenery

Provence and Buenos Aires
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
Carefully consider whether you are more of an organized tour kind of person or prefer the concept of Untours (There's a BIG difference)
Spend time on the website to narrow down the choices (which are MANY)
Consult with the staff of Untours if you have narrowed the choices to a few and are still undecided
READ about the country ahead of time - know something about the history, culture, customs.
Learn some of the language if you don''t already speak it - your attempts go a long way in showing your interest and respect
If you're not naturally a flexible person, do your best to "go with the flow"
Obtain a good map to supplement what you will receive from Untours
