Amazing!! No words to describe how good
vladam2017, 12-01-2023
It was the best experience I ever had on a tour guided trip. Normally I get nervous because of the transpiration, buses, being prepared for the entire day but this trip had it all. Vladimir was my tour guide host and he was amazing!! He really cared if you had a good experience and wanted to make it as good as possible: the alps were a bit cloudy but overall this experience is to die for if you have the chance to do it. I 100% recommend and would do it again in a heart beat. If you get lucky with Vladimir, you’ll enjoy the tour even more!
Bucket list experience

For us this was definitely one that is a bucket list item recommendation. Amazing trip from start to finish, bus tour, scenic views, cable car ride, train ride, the glacier, the sphinx all unbelievable.
For anyone looking for info the tour we took departed from Zurich with a stop at the picturesque town of Interlaken then onwards to eiger express followed by the train up to Jungfraujoch, train journey back down is also amazing. You can drink water or minerals on the bus but no food or tea/coffee permitted. There are restaurants/cafes on route and also up on the top of Europe too.
Fantastic overall experience and one to do for sure!
Best experience

It’s so beautiful! We took a bus to the alps and then a train up and down it after visiting Jungfraujoch. It was very busy but it was around the holiday season so it’s to be expected. The views were amazing. Definitely worth doing!!
