The activity is excellent, the hikes at the top are superb to do. On the other hand, be careful with GetYourGuide, they are not well interfaced with the Swiss railways, you have to come with the printed confirmation otherwise it's very very very difficult. Better to book directly on the website.

It was a great experience going thru the mountains and forests in this small and old style train. The view was spectacular and on the top had a lot of things to see and do. Highly recommended.

Tip: print out the vouchers and hand them in at the ticket counter. Then you won't have any problems. Otherwise the activity was really worth the money.

The Schynige Platte is worth the trip. Beautiful circular hiking trails, the Aipengarten and a good restaurant.

A great experience - the train ride and the plants were impressive!
