Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Eiger - Jungfrau Glacier Panorama View (from Zurich). What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Initially we booked the Eiger Jungfrau panorama tour which leaves you with unguided free 4 hours at Wengen,Kleine schedeigg and Grindelwald,but at the last moment changed our minds and upgraded to the full 12 hour guided jungfrau experience tour and went up the mountain to the top of Europe and felt glad that we changed our plans,as the experience to the top of Europe was definitely worth more than what it costed.Our tour guide Kid organised the tour very well and made sure every attraction was covered and the punctuality was maintained,he also made sure that every individual gets a memory of the picturesque adventure by pointing the photo opportunities at the right time and he even took some priceless pics for everybody himself.This tour is ideal for people who fear heights,have vertigo or feel nauseated in rotating cable cars as this one takes to top of Europe without you having to take a single cable car.You complete the full journey in coach and trains,the first half is exploring the scenic beauty of interlaken with some shopping and refreshment opportunities and the second half is the beautiful unforgettable train journeys to the mountains.On the way to the mountains you have numerous photo opportunities wherein you capture snow clad mountains,car free villages,cattles with swiss bells,old houses.lakes and lush greenery.On top you have many adventures to witness like the sphinx,snow fun through the plateau,ice palace and alpine sensation.I would definitely recommend this tour as me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed it and are going to nurture and cherish the memories for the rest of our lives.
The tour was amazing , perfect .... But pse be noted this is NON guided , we were only given the train ticket from wengen - mountain - grindelwald .Trust me Do NOT take the extension tour to Jungfraug as the tour guide (Kid) suggested as it means u only see the mountain without explore the village
Great tour and great day. Just enough time with the guide and a good bit of free time which was welcomed. It is what you want from a tour in the Alps. Get me there, tell me how to get around and then tell me where I need to be to return.
Amazing! I would recommend taking the Eiger-Jungfrau tour for a small group of younger adults who want to explore. We had 5 hours to manage on our own between 3 towns and plenty of time to eat lunch, hike, explore. The top of the mountain tour seemed too structured, and it seems that most of your time would be spent on trains and only on the top of that mountain. We were the only 2 people out of 60 people who did not do the top of the mountain tour and we definitely had more fun after listening to the stories of the group when we met back up.
The tour is a high end service!
We love our tour guide and the bus driver!
The tour guide is very professional and knowledgeable.
We upgraded our tour to go to the top of Europe, an unforgettable experience!
Trip was fantastic gorgeous view on the way up by train. Unfortunately was snowing heavily at top of mountain unable to step out for picture taking. Highly recommended.
It was an amazing trip from Zurich to Jungfrau.We upgraded to include the the highest level.It is a beautiful day trip when u r surrounded by timeless beauty of the Alps.Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Very, very good guide: a young man from Thailand who was very energetic and helpful. Wonderful scenery-we had great weather. I would recommend people not used to higher altitudes take asperin and plenty of water.
*** This review is for Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe ***
The most moving tour I'd ever been on, our tour guide advised us to upgrade our tour to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe. We are glad we did. A wonderful tour guide makes this an extremely well organized tour.
We can highly recommend this tour, prime seats on the bus both ways, tour guide (Kip) was fantastic and had us laughing all the time.
Pity the weather at the top was bad. 5 star
Was an AWESOME experience, one that will remain with me for the rest of my life. The Tour Guide, Kid, made the experience really special. Everything ran like clockwork. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

What an experience indeed ! I have travelled recently almost a week back and the trip was fascinating. Initially , I have taken a trip only for the Eiger Jungfrau Glacier panorama , but at the last moment I had changed my view and opted for Jungfrau , Top of Europe trip . The changeover was very easy and it was done in the Bus itself by paying the differential fare. The best part of the trip was time management. It was so well done by the Driver Mr Mario and the Guide , Mr Kied to perfection. Regarding the scenic beauty , words cannot describe it .... It was just too good to be there on the Europe's top most peak ! It was fun all the day ! I would say once in each person's life time we should make it there !
This was the best, the very best. We paid more and took the Jungfrau, Top of Europe extension to this tour. It was wonderful. Words cannot describe. Plus I conquered my fear of heights. Hooray for me! Another thing, we had the best tour guide ever. He made the tour wonderful. I can't tell you how informative and fun he was, thoughtful of everyone, looking out for us,like a mother hen. Always pointing out to us the best places to take pictures, and taking pictures of all of us. He is a real treasure. This was a wonderful ending to our trip.
Absolutely breathtaking place. I took the tour initially via Viator but upon reaching the boarding point realized people were being given different stickers on the tour. When I asked about it she said that I would only be going to the base of the glacier and not all the way to the top and its an extra 90 francs to go up. This option had not been provided by Viator when I booked. I decided what the heck and paid and it's definitely worth it. The whole trip would have been a loss if I hadn't gone up - it's the most astounding views you can imagine. If you have one day in Zurich, this would be the tour to go for.
This was the best trip we've made. The tour guide was warm towards all passengers, Ice Palace is something no one should miss.
The tour was extremely well organised and I can definitely recommend it. The coach left exactly on time, and people were warned to keep to the times given to return to the coach or else they would be left behind. This was great because people knew the guide was serious about sticking to the schedule as everything was very carefully planned. Low and behold one or two people WERE left behind for not showing up on time and got what they deserved.
The Jungfrau region is absolutely beautiful all year round. With lots of personal time in the little town for sight-seeing we really enjoyed every minute of the tour. Thanks also for always sticking to the scenic routes instead of the motorways.
My wife and I really enjoyed the trip. The guide was extremely helpful, and but for him, our trip would not have been as enjoyable. Everything was perfectly timed and organised. Thanks once again!
This trip was truly beautiful and amazing! Our tour guide seemed at first to be in a bad mood, yet before we started the trip up the mountain was lively and had all of us laughing the rest of the trip. Traveling up the mountain you are taken aback by the picturesque landscape, like a fairy tale.
We went on the Jungfraujoch tour....so ended up not doing this one, but the Heidi land tour. It was great!
If you're like me and chose this trip instead of the one that goes to the top of Jungfrau, go for the full thing! This trip is probably not worth the cost without going all the way (which is why I give this 4 starts instead of 5 -- the Top of Europe addition makes this 5 stars). Tour guide Kid was outstanding! He worked very hard to make sure everyone had the very best pictures (running around borrowing everyone's cameras to get the perfect shot, and taking staged photos of everyone using their camera). He was also very knowledgeable about the areas we drove through on the way. Slightly hard to understand with a Thai accent, but still "100 percent" excellent. :-) We were lucky and had a completely clear day. Absolutely beautiful up there! I got very light-headed after the walk up to the viewing platform, so be ready for that temporary problem due to the high altitute of 11,300 feet. Highly recommend the Top of Europe tour, with Kid as the tour guide.
The area we were visiting was fogged in by misty clouds. The guide was good. However he encouraged us to upgrade to trip to top of Jungfrau. He should not have encouraged us knowing the weather forecast which we did not. We could not see a thing at the top. A call to the top would have been informative.This aside, the building was too commercialized and the inside was a zoo with hundreds of tourists inside vying for a lunch seat. The day would have been better spent staying with the first tour , wandering a charming Swiss mountain town looking up at the mountains and enjoying the splendor of the area rain or shine rather than fighting all the tourists in a cattle boat situation.
Sadly the weather did not allow us to see the scenery to its best advantage - it actually snowed when we were part way up the mountain and cloud prevented us seeing north face of the Eiger and sadly a group of Japanese tourists had no idea of sharing window space to take photos anyway. As well our tour was combined with another group going further up and we felt like "poor relations'". But our guide was helpful and gave us clear instructions where we would be met etc. It was a great day and we were glad we did it.
