AN UNFORGETTABLE LIFE EXPERIENCE! UNREAL!! Absolutely a must- do for any thrill seekers and nature lovers!! My boyfriend and I were visiting Switzerland for the first time and staying in Zurich and looked for an excursion with round trip transportation to one of the alps. This was HANDS DOWN the best choice. The view when we took the cable car up to the top of Mt First gave us chills seeing the incredibly tall mountains peeking out from the clouds. Getting to ride the mountain carts was our favorite and we wished we could have done it a second time but we chose to have lunch at the top of the mountain instead (which was also amazing! I recommend getting schnitzel and or the Swiss noodles) and ran out of time to do mountain carts a second time because by then the line was too long. We also did the Glider and the trotti bikes which were both also so thrilling! The best part was the view going down on the mountain carts and trotti bikes, it truly felt like a dream come true like we were in the Sound of Music and Julie Andrews was going to come out and sing “the hills are alive..” The tour guide was also very helpful in explaining the train situation, it was very easy to meet up with everyone and it all felt pretty seamless and convenient. This was 100% a highlight of our trip and we already want to come back and do it again!

This was a lot of fun, amazing views, zip lining, cliff walk everything I wanted to do, was easy with the tour, all tickets prepaid so skipped the long queue at the bottom of the mountain

This tour was a little disappointing. Our tour bus was combined with 2 other tours, which means we had a lot of stops to pick/drop off others. I feel like this wasted a lot of valuable time. The “tour guide” spoke a bit on the drive but didn’t provide much insight like you’d expect on a tour. My group was the last to be dropped off, but by that time, the tour guide had already left so we were on our own. The bus driver dropped us off near Mt First but gave us no direction on where to walk. We all got lost trying to find the entrance. Once on the mountain, we had an amazing time doing the activities. I’d recommend skipping this “tour” and just taking the train to Interlaken then to Grindelwald train station. Then buy your own tickets to Mt First. Although the drive up was beautiful, I felt like so much time was wasted just getting there and then trying to race back down to catch the bus back.
