Its a good tour but a little pricey since theres not a lot to see in Interlaken.Guide were wonderful. Overall, it was still okay
The alps and the ride up...

The alps and the ride up the mountain with a lift. Sofia, our tour guide is the best! She provided quality customer service. All questions were answered and more including recommendations for fine restaurants in the area. She is very professional and one of the best tour guides I ever had. Thank you so much for a great time and tour.

The best ever. It was initially a Grindelwald and Interlaken activity but Sofia was honest enough to say that some shops, ride might be closed because it was a Monday. Glad i had it upgraded to Jungfraujoch Top of Europe tour and it is simply the best and the highlight of my trip. Beyond words actually the experience on the highest point in Europe. Sofia is simply one of the best hosts I have ever experienced in all of the tours I did in the past.
Odd Tour but Great Places!

I actually found this tour a bit odd, since it's a large group of two different tours combined in one. One large group continues with the tour guide to the Top of Europe Jungfrau while the smaller group (this one) is left at Grindelwald with a train ticket to ride solo to Interlaken to meet the bus later on. Of course you can't go wrong with these places, it's simply wonderful and for sure you won't regret visiting Grindelwald and Interlaken, however I felt a bit unattended and thought that a tour guide would be assisting us along the whole tour, which not happened at all. Anyways the tour guide Monica was great and very quinde, I just think this tour should be more well organized as in fact SWISS VILLAGES and not just a "ride" to Grindelwald and Interlaken. It would be a lot cheaper just to take the train from Zurich and do everything by your own.
Beautiful scenery, but save yourself some money and just take the train

These places were absolutely breathtaking, you will not regret seeing it. But this tour bus just drops you off at one town and gives you a train ticket to take to the other town to meet the bus in 6 hours to take you back. The tour guide does not stay with you at all, they take other people on an upgraded tour to the top of the mountain. So they dropped us off in the freezing cold rain and instructed us to meet them at the next town over in 6 hours. We were ready to go back to Zurich in about 4 hours but had to wait until the scheduled time to return. Then the bus was over 15 minutes late getting to the pickup location. We had to wait in the dark and freezing cold wondering if we were at the right place and if they were going to show up at all. Save yourself some money and aggravation and just purchase a Saturday or Sunday Super Day Pass online with the SBB which is less expensive and can get you to these villages and anywhere else you want to go unlimited for the day.
