We spent a wonderful day in that wonderful gift of Nature that is the alpine territory that surrounds Piz Gloria. It was very nice to eat in the revolving panoramic restaurant. Everything was easier thanks to Abraham's guide, who was very kind to us. There are two things that would improve the activity, taking into account the total price of the tour: including some food or drink and some transportation to and from Interlaken East Station.

We had the best guide anyone could ask for! Eric was extremely informative, attentive to all our questions, and very witty. He willingly assisted us in not only making the most of this spectacular tour, but also helped us with our immediate and future transportation needs. Just fabulous in every way!

Great guide and everything timed perfectly. It would be a real chore to figure this all out yourself. Perfect day.

Amazing experience! Very friendly and informative guide. Excellent restaurant and breathtaking view.
