This was a lovely tour, I didn't do the option to go to the Jungfrau but the recommended cable car ride in Grindelwald was absolutely stunning. Just gorgeous. A wander around Interlaken was also lovely and the additional free time in Grindelwald allowed good exploring. The scenery and countryside is also stunning. I highly recommend this trip.

Our tour was upgraded on the bus. We upgraded from the Interlaken and Grindelwald Day Trip to the Juanfranc Top of the World trip after discussions with our tour guide. The most amazing trip we've ever undertaken. The pick up and drop off times were exact. Our tour guide was informative and entertaining.

Fantastic review!! We caught our bus only 3 blocks from our hotel in Lucerne. Boarded a luxury motorcoach that took us to Interlaken . We were given very detailed plans about the day and 3 options we could choose for the day. Peter was our guide and was enthusiastic, charming and friendly. He did not want us to feel forced to upgrade, but rather gave us information that we could not resist upgrading. And we did not regret our upgrade!!!! It cost us 115 more per person to go up to the top of Europe. Our booking was just to Interlaken and Grindelwald. The stop in Interlaken was 1/2 hour. We got real hot chocolate and croissant. Boarded the bus to go up further and catch two types of trains to the very top. The rides were enjoyable and informative and comfortable. Our group had 21 people. We had reservations on these trains just for us that Peter handled. At the top of Jungfrau we had two hours to go through a prearranged tour of the history and making of this amazing facility. We felt light headed and were instructed to take our time and walk slowly. We also had an amazing lunch at the top. Gorgeous scenery right outside our window. We were able to take an elevator to the top and go outside to take photos. It was -5. We also wandered into the Lindt chocolate factory/ store. After 2 hours, we boarded the train and went back down. Stopping a few times for photo opportunities like we did on the way up. Boarded our bus in Grindelwald and a bus ride back to Lucerene. Peter and Armando, thank you for out amazing adventure where we enjoyed EVERY single second! And we did!!! So good to have met you Peter! A charming representative of Switzerland!!! We love you!!!

This is the best way to explore the landscape just right below Alpine mountain. We have about 5 hours to do little hiking, enjoy the landscape, having a nice lunch in one of Indian Restaurant and take many beautiful picture. I also think that join this tour is the easiest way to get grindelwald rather than by train with reasonable price.

Great day and weather. My wife and I were looking for a day in the alps and it was exactly what i had hoped for. For many years i have wanted to see the Eiger with my own two eyes. It was a Sunday in late May so a bit quiet in Interlackan and Grindelwald. I can't imagine what it would be like in peak season. Madness I'm sure. Most of the folks on our coach were heading up to Jungfraujoch so we were dropped off at Interlaken. We had about 90 min. to roam around. We were picked up and taken up to Grindelwald where we had 4 plus hours of splendour. The Eiger is magical and our trip on the gondola to Mt First was worth the $. As i said, it was Sunday with a lot of shops closed but we could still find a cold beer. It was very quiet and if the weather was poor, it would have been a different story. We only had the one full day, on our way Como, to make the trip and we nailed it. Great coach ride and very scenic. A great way to day trip to the Jungfrau region. Easier than a bus or train...........Michael. Halifax Canada

An awesome way to know the alps ! Interlaken is a lovely little town, but we spent most of the day in Grindelwald, on the foot of the Jungfrau. Just the view from the town was worth the ride alone, but the beautiful city, friendly environment and nice weather made it for a perfect day!

This is a good for a couple's day out. The scenic beauty around this area is very romantic and breathtaking. Also there are local eateries where you can satisfy your hunger! This is really a trip for those who want some quiet time!

Beautiful scenery. I especially liked the trip to Grindelwald. You must walk up the hill or take the bus for the short trip up the hill to the only church in the village. The view from there of the mountains and glacier is awesome. The guide was with us only on the bus, but he was informative and great about telling us when to prepare for a good picture.

The pickup was very punctual and our guide Barbara was clear and concise i her instructions and offered the Jungfrau upgrade to us on the bus which we declined as we had bee to Jungfrau before. The weather was bitterly cold that day bu we were just able to walk the 2 hours at Interlaken and met up with the drive Emile punctually. We found out that the group going to Jungfrau could not make the journey as the winds were way too high and the entire group proceeded to Grindelwald where due to the low season, many of the shops were still shut. The minus degree cold and snow meant we hid out in the warm restaurants waiting for the pick up. I am of the opinion that it was just bad weather and Barbara and Emile did their best despite the weather challenges placed before them. I would recommend this trip if weather was more forgiving and less harsh but do bear in mind that this is more a transfer to attractions with little guided component which was what i wanted and expected and not to be expected to be run as a full guided tour.

We had upgraded our tour and included Jungfrouch in our itinerary, which made it expensive but it was worth going for it!!

The coach arrived late from Zurich, when our lot of 15 boarded, that made 70 people. This was a bit of a surprise. Kit was very organized, abrupt and difficult to understand. No mention of upgrading to the Jungfrau tour! This is not a guided tour but probably a quicker way to do this trip. A train might be cheaper. By the time you walk around Interlaken, watch some hang gliders land in a central picturesque park, you are ready for the next trip to Grindelwald. The only apparent option is the cable car up to Mt First which has several adventure activities that you can do. Hire bikes for part of decent, flying fox, watch the hang gliders taking off. At 59CHF each extra, made it very expensive day. Trip up to Mt Jungfrau wasn't much more! We had a glorious day with the weather and the scenery on First was amazing. Bad traffic saw us late home.

First signed up for this tour to Grindelwald but considering it was a Sunday where most of the shops were closed, in the end decided to join most of the group on the Jungfraujoch tour. Tour guide was very knowledgable and provided a very fun journey up to the mountains where the view was spectacular. A very enjoyable trip indeed :

Our guide, Kid, was amazing! He made sure to take fabulous photos of everyone and give us helpful hints. He alone was 5 stars! The reason I didn't give this tour 5 stars was because we only got 20 min in Interlaken and around an hour in Jungfrau. It felt very rushed w/ most of the day going 2 travel

What a beautiful place! At Grindelwald, we took a cable car up to one of the peaks. I just wish we had a little more time in Interlaken; we only had 20 minutes.

We only spent about 35 minutes in Interlaken and 5hrs in Grindelwald. Wish it had been split at least 2hrs and 3hrs. 5hrs was too long to spend on your own in a strange place without a tour guide. I think this tour should be changed to include the midway trip to Jungfraujoch and not leave people for 5hrs in a small town. We were done touring in about 90mins. All in all it was a great experience and the bus guide was very warm and pleasant.

Unless you do the tour to the mountain for an additional 200 Plus per person, it is not the right fit. The bus stays in Interlaken for about 1.5 hrs, then brings you to Grindelwald while the others are touring the mountain top. You are left there to spend 6 hrs on your own. If I had know this in advance, I would have done more research about Grindelwald to find the right places to see. The town is absolutely gorgeous.

Jib, the tour guide was not friendly and unapproachable. It was very hard to understand him. There were only four us going to Grindelward and we were part of another tour. 4 1/2 hours at Grindelwald is too long but that was because they wanted top accommodate the other group that had a much longer tour. This should be disclosed up front. Interlaken and Grindelwald were both beautiful. Glad we went.
