Incredible experience particularly on a clear sunny day I We will never forget being between heaven and earth for a few hours.

This was one of the most amazing tours I have ever done. The company was Hans Meier, and we had a great guide, his name I believe was Kid he wrote it on the maps but mine got smudged, sorry if I got it wrong!. He knew all the great places to stop for photos, quick to take everyone's camera to get shots of people for them. We were a relatively small group so it was easy to do this. We had so much more fun compared to the other groups we passed by. Got us to the key places ahead of crowds and got some amazing pictures. We were also lucky because it was a very clear day. I loved this tour, and has made me want to return to Switzerland! I would very strongly recommend this tour!

There were four of us and all of us LOVED this tour. Our guide Kid was excellent and the scenery was breath taking. Well worth every penny and I would tell anyone staying in Lucerne it is a must do.

This is the best tour in Europe it is a must for anyone visiting Switzerland and not enough stars on viator. The views are stunning just on the bus ride to Interlaken and the train station, the cog wheel train is fantastic and the views magical, the glacier is awesome. A huge highlight of this trip was the guide Kati sorry if the spelling is wrong he is totally brilliant made my day and everyone I spoke to on the trip as well he took photos for everyone and ensured we had a one off experience. Only tip I can give is for people who get cold easily to take a jumper. I would do this trip again in a heart beat and swear I would give it 10 stars if I could.

We had an awesome trip to the Jungfraujoch, the Sphinx Observatory and the Ice Caverns. Our guide on the trip named Kid was fantastic, assisting passengers in taking selfies on the train ride up the mountain and looking after the folks who for either age, mountain sickness or other issues were not feeling their best.

I would strongly recommend this trip. The views were second to none, the bus ride from Lucerne was a bit under two hours and while a long day, it was well worth every penny!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Our day trip to the Jungfrau from Lucerne on the 22nd August was the the most memorable experience of our lives, it was amazing. We were so fortunate to have a beautiful sunny day, have some awesome photos, but I must say that our guide was the best! Kid was his name and he went out of his way to please everybody, taking unusual shots in various positions and settings, would recommend highly a trip to the Jungfrau.
