David was a great young man and eager to please. We took the train to Wengen and had to time to stroll through the village and enjoy both it's quaintness as well as the spectacular scenery. Heading up through the Eiger to Jungfraujoch was exciting as were the ice caves in the glacier. We even hiked on the glacier in an early September snow storm. Great fun!

Toni was a treasure trove of experience for our tour to Jungfraujoch. He gave us a quick overview of Switzerland he actually typed a document for us to take home and would explain the various sights along our journey up and down to Jungfraujoch up to the minute details of real and artificial snow. He had prepared almost everything for the trip, so all we had to do was follow him and take pictures of the beautiful sights he'd even tell us which side of the train to sit for the best photo opportunities.

If you don't mind chatting, Toni's fun to chat with as well during the train rides to Jungfraujoch. There was always something to learn from his experiences and we totally enjoyed our tour with him as our guide!

Thank you very much Toni! :D

Our guide, Debra was great. She was on time meeting us at our hotel. We walked to the Interlaken train station. She told us where to sit in each train to simplify transfers 3 trains needed to reach Jungfraujoch. She answered all our questions. She helped other tourists at Jungfraujoch.
We were prepared for the 37 degrees at the top of the mountain, but Debra carried things one step further by bringing gloves for us to wear in the ice tunnels.

Took a private tour per some recommendations to the top of Europe. the guide was very nice and was very knowledgable of the trains and time schedules. I would have preferred to have chosen the time of depature would have liked to leave earlier. Overall good experience.
