Very nice tour and even nicer to go in a small group. We went in mid-August and the weather was quite cold in the alps.

The guide Beat was very friendly and helpful! The visibility for us was a bit poor, but that didn't dampen the experience.

Just ask to stop for photos too!

This tour of the Swiss Alps and other highlights is worth the 8 hours. The walk through the ice tunnel, although very touristy is a must! The sights are beautiful. If you do not enjoy the great outdoors then skip this tour. Thomas did a very fine job.

Awesome! The Swiss Alps, passes, gorges and the perfect sunny summer day were definitely most memorable! Had fun climbing down and up the Rhone Glacier. Very informative, friendly guide Thomas who definitely kept us entertained with delightful info of Switzerland, The Swiss Alps and, he is an excellent driver too! Would love more of the walkabout, hike-about. Absolutely a memorable excursion, well-value for money due to the small group. Highly recommended; excellent way to check out the alpine for future walkabout, hike-about trails. Well done! We loved it!

This is the best tour I have enjoyed during our 4 weeks in Europe. The guide (Heinz) was very professional, informative, humours, and friendly. My wife and I enjoyed every movement of the trip even though we wish the tour could have started earlier in European summer. We have seen the most beautiful parts of the Alps. I would strongly recommend my friends to join this tour when they are in Zurich.

Excellent trip, but first part of tour duplicated what we had seen the previous day on the Mount Pilatus trip. By going more directly to Meringen, there could have been more time spent in the alps.

Very pleasant tour except the car did not work correctly on the return trip which is no fault of the driver. He was very nice and knowledgable on the tour.

Great experience. Heinz was an excellant guide. Saw so much and learnt heaps about Switzerland. Especially enjoyed walking through the gorge and the ice tunnel

The bus ride itself was awful, apparently brand new buses come with broken air conditioners. There was a small child on the bus and she cried most of the way to the mountains. Once we were in the mountains it was cool enough. Bring a sweater or light jacket but aside from the glacier tunnel it is warm. We went in July, bring water and snacks, there are only 2 places to get food and it is over priced and poor quality. The tour guide was good but he made me feel rushed. The Alps and the landscape made everything we went through worth it though. The water and mountains are beyond incredible.
