It was a good trip but I was unable to do everything due to mobility restrictions and standing a lot. We elected not to go back with the bus and stay in z Interlaken for 2 hours and get the train back to Zurich via Bern. Glad we decided to go. The view was delightful

It was a great tour, really well organized and the bus driver was amazing considering all the right winding roads up the mountains. Annette was an awesome guide, very attentive and caring. There was a delay as another bus with the same provider broke down and we had to board tour-goers from the other bus onto ours but otherwise everything was very timely, a great and cost effective way to see both places in one day.
