This tour was extremely informative and enjoyable. Our guide, Richard, had lots of local and historical information for us and a quiet sense of humour, very professional. The glacier cave was a highlight of the tour and we were taken through countryside that we would not have been comfortable driiving ourselves as the mountain passes take some skill to negotiate.

Absolutely must see! The alps is so beautiful, words and pictures can't describe. If possible try to book your tour on a day with good weather.

Wonderful tour! Amazing views along the way, with stops along the way for photos and such.
Our tour guide - Ernest - was great. Very knowledgeable, gave us a lot of info on everything, and yet very accommodating to the group. Switzerland and the Aps are amazing, and this tour is highly recommended.

I have been on a couple tours from Zurich. This by far was the best. A long day, but you get to see a lot of different landscapes. The gorge was very beautiful and the walk was nice and refreshing. The Glacier was pretty amazing - you get to walk in the glacier. Definitely wear or bring sneakers or walking shoes for that part - its a little slippery. Our tour guide was Richard - very professional! He made a lot of stops for photos (5 minutes at some great overlooks) - I find most tours don't build that time in. I would recommend this for anyone traveling to Zurich who wants to get a taste of Switzerland in a day.

It was an excellent trip from any point of view. Sun, snow, low visibility in fog and wonderful Alps view - all in one day. Thanks to the man who made it possible - Ernest. We learned and enjoyed a lot.

Just amazing! No words can describe what the Alps are truely like! This tour is great. We got to stop a few times along the way to get off the bus and look around. The bus also stops to let you walk through Aare Gorge, which is a must! You get to see alot of the Alps, and leaves you wanting to see more. Towards the end of the day, you are taken to the Rhone glacier and the ice cave. You can walk through the ice cave which is just a beautiful experience! Hopefully you are lucky enough to have your guide. He provides great information on not only the Alps. But Switzerland and Zurich in general. It is a good idea to take your own food, however you can buy food there. The food at the lunch stop is expensive, but the price is really no different to the rest of Switzerland (everything is expensive), and it tasted fine. This tour was one of the highlights of my trip.

Konrad was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic. This tour is definitely worth doing. The alps are amazing. We loved the gorge and wish we could have spent more time there to complete the walk around (even just an extra 15 or 20 minutes). The glacier was amazing - I recommend good walking shoes with grip, as the walk to it is a little slippery on the thin strip of snow. For those who love waterfalls like me, you will definitely enjoy this tour as there are waterfalls everywhere!

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.
