What people are saying about Interlaken

Overall, an excellent trip, and can't imagine our trip without the journey to Jungfraujoch! The mountain itself was incredible. Lots of snow despite being the middle of summer, the glacier trains were amazing. Particularly enjoyed the ice sculptures (but do hold onto the railings as I did slip and fall). Also enjoyed seeing so much of the country during the various travels. As the itinerary shows, there is a lot of traveling (by coach, train and cable car) which was all comfortable but did mean 2 1/2 hours at the mountain, a brief stop at Interlaken (which was amazing), and a couple of short stops here and there (usually to pick up passengers or for bathroom breaks). If you want to tick off lots of places at once, this is the tour for you but also note that you won't get much time at any apart from Jungfraujoch. Driver was friendly and tour guide brilliant.

Overall tour was excellent. Tour guide kept us informed all through the start point till end point. Tour was not at all hectic (as I was worried for such a long tour). Itinerary was very well planned/designed where we get ample time to eat, take loads of photos, go to toilets, buy souvenirs etc. Highly recommend this tour operators

I enjoyed this tour. It was worth every minute. We got to explore Interlaken by ourselves. The sceneries are breathtaking. Just one suggestion: please equip your buses with usb charging ports and wi-fi.

It was a great experience even though the weather was not so good. Our tour guide Monika was really good.

Great experience will recommend to anyone who has only two days in Switzerland
