Excellent! The pace of the trip was great, providing enought time at the Top of Europe Jungfraujoch. The secenary was breathtaking and the train rides like no other. It was like you could reach out and touch the sides of the mountains. The tour guide was very knowledgable and clear. Highly, highly recommend. A must see!

Amazing! Can't recommend this enough! So glad I did this as a day trip from Lucerne, because unless you are an adrenaline junky, there is no need to go to Interlaken and to do it yourself from there. Plenty of time on top to explore. Amazing view and train rides up and down. Loved it!

Spectacular scenery and we had already been to Zermatt, Glacier Exp, and Bernina Exp. Trip was well organized with enough time at the top and clear directions. Don't miss it an exceptional end to a wonderful time in Switzerland and Austria.
