    Kid was a blast and you can tell he truly has passion for his work. His personality is special to say the least and very entertaining lol. Would definitely take a tour with his again and you will get all the photos your heart desires! Kid definitely made it feel like a group trip for us all and very wholesome. He provided a sense of togetherness that you don’t see often in tours with groups.

    The tour guide Mr. Kidd was extremely rude to us and tried to single out / exclude me and my friend when we asked him to be polite with us. He did not give us proper instructions, name called us as ‘maharajas’ and often vanished with the American and European participants to viewing points while asking us to wait at an assembly point. At some of the points, he would run off with the first lot of passengers often leaving the rest of us to hunt for him with his half-baked instructions. While we did enjoy the breathtaking views, our experience was dampened by a megalomaniac guide with some anti-Indian agenda. Do skip if you are from South Asia and Kidd is leading this.

    The tour guide "Kid" was fantastic very inclusive making sure we all had a memorable experience. We had a lot of laughs and he made sure we did not miss a thing including photo opportunities. He took photos of us. I met some great people and had fun because of him. The actual tour was great, well organised, comfortable and great scenery. A real highlight for me

    Great tour and excellent guide! We spent an amazing day in the Alps with great weather. I had gone to Interlaken and Grindelwald the day before so I sort of knew what to expect of Jungfeaujoch. What an amazing experience this was! Beautiful weather and views from up there. Our guide Kid was great giving us plenty of photos opportunities and took many photos with our phones or cameras so we would have them. Absolutely recommend this tour!

    What an amazing experience! This is definitely a must do while in Switzerland. Our tour guide Kid took great care of us as well as our driver Armondo. We had sections of the trains just for our group with lots of photos opportunities on the way up. Everything about this tour was amazing from the views to the Ice Palace to the Top of Europe. The snow up top is slippery so bringing boots with good footing helps. Gloves and a jacket also helps. Even with the sun out, it got a bit chilly with the wind. I highly recommend this tour! 5 stars!

    First, the positives: - Instructions for where to meet and at what time were very clear. - Maps/guides were provided to show us what there was to do at the top. - We had reserved sections/cars on the the three train rides. - The experience at the top is incredible and worth the effort. It's nice to have someone arrange and manage it for you. - They provided a few high quality photos from the top for free by airdropping them to my phone (can also be emailed). The negatives: - We only had 2 hours, 10 minutes at the top which is really stretching the word "approximately" when it advertises "approximately three hours". That said, we didn't necessarily need a full three hours up there. But having two and a half or so would have made things less hectic. - Some people might really enjoy having Kid as their guide. He works hard and is enthusiastic. But he literally yells at you to move to certain spots for pictures. It's not angry yelling, but it is aggressive. He was constantly having people jump on seats to take pictures leaning outside of the train window. I get that it's a cool picture, but not sure that everyone needs to do it multiple times. It makes it hard to sit back and enjoy the ride. He also yelled at a family on top of the mountain to move so our group could take pictures, which was embarrassing. It's not as if our tour group has any more right to be up there. He told us beforehand that the best way to avoid altitude sickness is to drink water and walk slowly then proceeds to power walk us through three of the activities. I suppose that technically we didn't have to follow along for that since we knew where and when to meet later, but he was highly suggested that we follow him. There was plenty of time on the bus ride for him to have explained some things that would have made the experience better. If he'd let us know that people who want great pictures should listen to him to make sure they don't miss them and that others can just relax, that would have been nice. Similarly, he could have told us that if we wanted to hurry through some of the things at the top that we could follow him, but if we want to take our time, we were free to do that as well. We also would have liked more information about the mountain and station. The focus was on getting pictures for everyone. That should certainly be part of it, but I felt like I missed out on other aspects. Just to be clear, Kid is passionate about his job, and for some people, his style would mesh really well with what they're looking for out of the experience. But if you want something guided that's a bit laid-back, this isn't it.
