This is one of the best activities I have joined and I’m so glad I decided to come event though I was alone. It was well-organized and I learned a lot about Switzerland from the tour guide. I’ve been telling my friends about this for when they come to Switzerland.

Grindelwald was stunning. You’ll have approximately 3 hours to explore it, just enough to tale good photos and have some snacks. Not to be missed! This is also much cheaper than doing a DIY trip to Interlaken and Grindelwald via train.

To start the staff was excellent. Clear instructions and very kind. Then the scenery was breath taking every where you look is a postal. Beautiful!!! Highly recommend it

This is an amazing trip to Grindelwald and Interlaken within one full day. Both guides were excellent and helped a lot. We both really enjoyed. Highly recommended.

The views were irreplaceable but it was quite expensive as everything else in Switzerland
