    I really enjoyed the Trip. Our guide Maude was very helpful. She gave a commentary from the time we pulled out of the bus parking lot until we got to each activity. I personally enjoy learning about the towns and sites we are just passing by as well as the destination. Dan was also another guide on the trip who was very helpful hearing the group.

    The stops were wonderful, I only wish we had more time at each one. Jungfraujoch was magnificent. I loved the Ice tunnels.

    Had a magnificent time. Long bus and train rides from Zurich, but the experience was well worth it. Our guides were very informative and easy to understand. And the bus driver was very skilled along the mountainous terrain. Simply put, Awesome.

    I cannot recommend this enough. A breathtaking train journey with stunning views, and that's before you get to the top!

    Great trip. Our guide Minu was fantastic. She was thorough in her explanations. It is a very long day, 12 hours, but it is worth it. We had a great time.

  • 10-Feb-2020

    The tour was very well organized, with Swiss precision! From Zurich, there were a few stops, in Lucerne and Interlaken for additional pickups. We spent 40 minutes in Interlaken to walk around main street, and 2+ hours at the main attraction, atop of Jungfraujoch, it was stunningly beautiful.

    We took the trip from Zurich to the "Top of Europe" and had a wonderful time. The trip was very well-organized - no easy task considering the various modes of transportation and time tables involved. Our guide, Gil, was wonderful - very helpful and informative, and the bus driver was excellent. The scenery was amazing and beautiful. Great trip! We highly recommend it!

    This was a spectacular way to spend a winter day! The bus was very comfortable, with big windows for sightseeing. Our tour guide, Eduardo, was great. Really knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed his informative commentary throughout the day. The train ride was fun, and Junfrauhoch was so cool! Really breathtaking. Eduardo reminded everyone to drink plenty of water to help with the high altitude, which was helpful. We highly recommend this tour!

    Had an enjoyable trip to JungfrauJoch. Views were fantastic. Wish that we could stay longer there. Due to high altitude, some might find it uncomfortable staying there for too long. We had friendly and knowledgeable guides, Rebecca and Angie. They make sure everyone is comfortable and stays together.
    However, do note that this tour will spend additional travel time to pick up more passengers from Lucern and Interlaken. That’s the reason, they have to start the tour early at 8am from Zurich. If they could start the tour at 8:30am or 9am, it would have been perfect. Our hotel breakfast only starts at 6:30am. If you have young children, which may take longer for breakfast, and if you are not staying near the Bus Station area, it will be a rush getting there before 8am.
    As a whole this tour is great, a visit to JungfrauJoch is a must!

    Our Guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Highly recommended for the amazing views and mountain air.

  • 02-Dec-2019

    Tour is 12 hours long but is broken down into 5 hours of pure tour activities and the balance is all bus travel time with multiple stops to do multiple pick ups and drop off of other people in other cities and to fill the bus the company combines multiple tours to confuse things even more. The tour itself is well coordinated once on the mountain with timing and private car on the cog train an added bonus.
