Know More about this tour

Head to the Sihlquai Bus Terminal near the Zurich train station in the morning to meet your guide who speaks English, Spanish and German and board your luxury coach. Relax on the scenic drive through the Bernese Oberland, touted as one of the most idyllic regions in Switzerland.
After a 2-hour drive, arrive in Interlaken in the heart of the Jungfraujoch region. Break here for a quick stop in this famous town, situated between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz.
Then, continue driving to the nearby village of Grindelwald. Board the cogwheel train here for a jaw-dropping ride to Kleine Scheidegg, a mountain pass located at the foot of Switzerlands most impressive Alpine panorama. Enjoy amazing views of the famous triple peaks of Eiger, Mnch and Jungfrau as you ride halfway up the mountain.
The top of the mountain reaches an astounding 11,750 feet (3,454 meters) above sea level. Ideal for those who are afraid of heights, this tour only takes you halfway up, to 6,762 feet (2,061 meters). But dont worry, this wont compromise the scenery; from Kleine Scheidegg, youll be treated to sweeping vistas of the Bernese Alps and unbeatable views of the famous Eiger North Face, featured in films such as The Eiger Sanction starring Clint Eastwood.
Youll have several hours of free time here to explore and take in the sensational Alpine environment. This area offers something for everyone: take a self-guided hike along the easily accessible Jungfrau Eiger Walk (several seasonal trails of moderate difficulty open late June to October); snap photos of the rock and ice masses of Eiger Glacier; or head to one of several local restaurants to enjoy some regional cuisine (own expense).
In the afternoon, meet your guide and board the train for the descent to Lauterbrunnen. Pass the holiday resort town of Wengen, known for events such as the Lauberhorn Races and Jungfrau Marathon. Then board the coach and return to Zurich in the evening.

  • the tour is good very scenic, last stop before the train to Jungfraujoch . If your taking this tour better to include the Jungfraujoch for the highlight of this is the top of the mountain .

  • Really excellent tour. Options exit so you can determine when to get off on the way up the mountain. Fantastic views.

  • Incredible scenery form interlaken, grinderwald all the way to jungfrau. I liked our tour guide Marcel, very friendly
    Just a suggestion provide a wifi connection in the bus tour and 1 bottle of water for 12 hour trip will be appreciated

  • I have to say this trip was beyond extraordinary. Our tour guides were highly knowledgeable and provided us with a lifetime experience. the great thing with this tour is that you actually have the option to change and do the top of the mountain but my friend and I decided to stay with this tour and I am hands down glad did I did. we were able to hike independently and experience the most amazing views. I would highly recommend this to anyone!!

  • We had an awesome day!! Besides the fact that mother nature was on our side and had a beautiful sunny day, our tour guides were amazing.

  • The driver was very competent informative and friendly. The coaches were clean and comfortable .a very affordable interesting tour

  • Great tour. Beautiful places covered. Very fun and informative tour guide.

  • We enjoyed a full day on this tour leaving out of Zurich. The bus ride was comfortable and the stops along the way were nice breaks before boarding a cog train to Kleine Scheidegg. Our guide was helpful but not overbearing. We opted to hike up 1000 meters and really enjoyed being in high altitude and cool temperatures. The train town was small but had a restaurant and gifts shops. While many others went to the top, we were glad after talking to others that we had the chance to hike and not just view the scenery. We really enjoyed our trip and it was worth the time and money. Great memory!

  • Its ok, though just a snowy mountain to explore. Thats it

  • We were VERY disappointed with the tour. In my opinion, if a tour operator 'Best of Switzerland' knows the weather condition in the mountain region, Kleine Scheidegg part of the tour MUST BE canceled. We were brought to the Kleine Scheidegg and left there for 4 hours for hiking, trekking, and other? activities. Because of the end of ski season, all chalets and hotels were closed until the hiking season. On the other hand, it was a heavy snowfall previous week, and no one bothered to snow removal on the passageways. Therefore it was no way to walk to the lake and observe the beautiful area surrounded by the mountains. So, we spent 4 hours on the train station greeting people coming and leaving the hub. Our tour guide Maria was not informative at all - she read everything from the paper in 2 languages and most of the tour she kept quiet. She seemed like a first-grade teacher on the field trip constantly counting people in the bus. Even though it was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoy stunning views from the platform, it was a total waste of money. I wouldn't recommend this tour at the end of the ski season we've done a lot of skiing in The Alps for many years and suggest taking a train and travel all by yourselves just to spend a day in the mountains to be more flexible or consider a different tour/activity.
