An amazing day in the Alps beginning with the drive from Zurich to Interlaken. Some of the most beautiful, majestic scenery you could imagine. We took two cogwheel trains passing by the Eiger to reach the summit ("Top of Europe"). Even though it was snowing at the summit you could still get a sense of the vastness and ruggedness of the mountains. Our guide was great and you got a sense she really enjoyed her profession. It was a full day leaving at 8:00am and returning around 7:30pm and worth every penny of the price. Highly recommended.

This was a good trip and just as it was described it was done hence it was well executed.
Of course, you can't predict weather. So choose a time when chances of good weather will be in your luck!

This is a beautiful breathtaking place to visit and something you can’t see in other places in the world. It was one of our favorite places we visited during our 3wk vacation. The views are unbelievable!

The bus ride from Zurich was good. Driver was very careful. The tour guide was very good as well and was very informative. The description in the brochure was accurate.

This excursion was phenomenal. Long but worth every minute. Our guide was super and did a "great " job of making the trip smooth. Views are breathtaking! Checking in was a bit unclear, but could be easily remedied by improving the check in process. Since a number of tours leave from this spot, tour bus and guide should be more easily identifiable. Thanks again La Vacanza Travel for making this excursion into the Swiss Alps an unforgettable experience. Two thumbs up!!!
