In Pursuit of 007
To mark the 50th anniversary of the film Goldfinger, Shelby Donley has created an itinerary for fans of the famous spy and anyone in pursuit of the mix of adventure and luxury that typifies James Bond. If you accept this mission, you'll begin in Zurich at the legendary Dolder Grand, continue to Andermatt where key scenes of Goldfinger were shot and then drive to Ticino and the Verzasca dam, famous from the opening scenes of GoldenEye. Everywhere you travel, Shelby will make sure you stay in the best hotels and that every martini you order will be shaken not stirred. Make sure to also check out our guide to some of Switzerland's appearances in Bond films.

    Day 1
    Scope Out Zurich
    Arrive in Zurich and transfer to the Dolder Grand. Enjoy an afternoon walking tour to learn your way around the Old Town, and then return to your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure—you may want to leave some time to visit the world-class Aqua Zone spa. We think Bond would approve of their unique snowparadise and Japanese-style heated sunaburo.
