Explore some of Switzerland's most magnificent Alpine regions on a day trip from Lucerne to Grindelwald in the Bernese Oberland. Along the way you'll visit the lovely town of Interlaken and have the option of taking a cable car to the sunny terrace of Mt. First.

Know More about this tour

This guided coach tour takes you on a scenic drive to Interlaken, at the foot of the snow-covered Alps of the Bernese Oberland. After free time to spend at your leisure in Interlaken, you'll journey to the well-known holiday resort of Grindelwald, nicknamed the "Glacier Village". You will have time to explore the resort on your own.

An optional cable car ride (operates late May to late October only) to the sunny terrace of Mt. First at 7,113 feet (2,168 meters) is highly recommended for a breathtaking panorama of the Bernese Alps.

In the late afternoon you'll meet your coach and guide to make the return journey to Lucerne.

    Our tour bus came from Zurich, so we got a later start (9:30). It was combined with the Jungfrau tour so some of us stayed in Interlaken and Grindelwald, and some went to the mountain-top. Our tour guide was with them, so he didn't really add any value. We had one short hour in Interlaken and four hours in Grindelwald - it's beautiful, a must-see. The train runs to both cities from Lucerne, so if you are comfortable with that, I recommend doing your own self-guided tour and being able to adjust your times in each place and leave when you want.

    It was a beautiful experience. The tour guide Kid was really good. Had a good laugh with him. Interlaken is a nice little place but didn’t get to spend much time there. We upgraded to go to the Top of Europe jungfraujoch which is a bit expensive but it’s very foggy so there wasn’t really much to see. It’s disappointing but nothing we can do about the weather. We never get to see Grindelwald apart from the train station. Wish we had spent a bit time to see the place. It was really a rush to go back to the bus. But the scenery on our way was breathtaking.

    The only reason we took the bus tour was for the commentary on the drive up. Kid our driver was rude and only said photo opp ready 123. We did not receive info on things to do at each stop nor maps. Which we received from the bus driver later in the day. Interlaken is for tourists Grindelwald was amazing. We discovered the Cliff Walk by accident. Great day (-Kid).

    Great tour!. Best way to go to the top of the Europe. Peter is very funny and caring. Definitely recommended.

    The tour guide was rude, pushy, and treated everyone very rude. Me and my wife enjoyed it because we selected a different tour than most of the group and were alone most of the day to wandering Grindelwald and Interlaken, i couldnt imagine spend the entire day with the guide!! Great places, bad guide.

    We only spent about 35 minutes in Interlaken and 5hrs in Grindelwald. Wish it had been split at least 2hrs and 3hrs. 5hrs was too long to spend on your own in a strange place without a tour guide. I think this tour should be changed to include the midway trip to Jungfraujoch and not leave people for 5hrs in a small town. We were done touring in about 90mins. All in all it was a great experience and the bus guide was very warm and pleasant.

    This tour was amazing!

    Tour guide did not do much except to bring us to the destination. The guide could have done better by explaining more stuff about the city, and to give some tips/guidance on what we could do in Grindelwald. It was purely just organizing transport, not really a "tour".

    The pickup was very punctual and our guide Barbara was clear and concise i her instructions and offered the Jungfrau upgrade to us on the bus which we declined as we had bee to Jungfrau before. The weather was bitterly cold that day bu we were just able to walk the 2 hours at Interlaken and met up with the drive Emile punctually. We found out that the group going to Jungfrau could not make the journey as the winds were way too high and the entire group proceeded to Grindelwald where due to the low season, many of the shops were still shut. The minus degree cold and snow meant we hid out in the warm restaurants waiting for the pick up. I am of the opinion that it was just bad weather and Barbara and Emile did their best despite the weather challenges placed before them. I would recommend this trip if weather was more forgiving and less harsh but do bear in mind that this is more a transfer to attractions with little guided component which was what i wanted and expected and not to be expected to be run as a full guided tour.

    This was a lovely tour, I didn't do the option to go to the Jungfrau but the recommended cable car ride in Grindelwald was absolutely stunning. Just gorgeous. A wander around Interlaken was also lovely and the additional free time in Grindelwald allowed good exploring. The scenery and countryside is also stunning. I highly recommend this trip.
