I'm so glad I did this tour! I wasn't going to go to Switzerland and not go up in the mountains! Groups doing the Jungfrau tour, Grindelwald tour and First tour were all on the same bus. We stopped first in Interlaken (about 40 minutes), which wasn't really necessary. It was just long enough to grab coffee and watch paragliders landing in the park. The directions from the guides were not entirely clear. First the Jungfrau participants got off the bus then we continued into Grindelwald and were "turned loose". I think because there was just 4 of us going up to Mount First, our guide accompanied us up from there and pointed out the activities that were open to us. Another participant on the tour joined me for a hike to the lake. The first part was most challenging (especially at that altitude) but we stopped to catch our breath and take pictures and it was well worth it. We had intended to do the mountain carts down (part-way) after our hike, but it had started raining by then. The flyer was closed because of weather. We had a good view of the glider on our way up and it didn't look worth the expense - not very long. We had been given our return train tickets so we returned to the Grindelwald train station on our own and back to Interlaken where we waited for the bus. I'm glad I did it, but note that it is not fully guided, if that is what you are looking for.

This tour mostly provides you with the transportation to get you to Grindelwald. We didn't buy the tickets or activities for Grindelwald with the tour as we were not sue how the weather would be that day. We had the Swiss travel pass we did get a 50% discount for activities. The views on top of Mt. First was breath-taking and looked like a postcard. We did the mountain go kart down the mountain, and it was one of my favorite experiences I have ever done. The town of Grindelwald is picturesque and I wish I stayed there overnight. I want to go back already!

What a scam. I paid 157 for three tour experiences ziplining, bike/karts, and scooter However, when the shuttle picked us up from the Starbucks, we were with 4 different tour groups! This made things so confusing because our tour guide had to give separate instructions for all tour groups. The other tour groups were doing other things in different cities with different attractions, so the instructions were so confusing and not clear. Everyone was confused! Once our tour got to Mt. First, the receptionist tried to scam me by saying that my Viatour ticket was NOT valid. I explained that I made the purchase and even showed her my receipt. She finally gave us our tickets to enter Mt. First Top Adventure park. Once inside the park, it says that the wait time is 2 hours minimum to do the ziplining, so that's what we did. I waited 2 hours for the zip lining attraction, to find out that my ticket did NOT even include ziplining! So here I am again, trying to inform the gentleman that I had preexisting tickets with La Vacanza Travel to do the ziplining. After 30 minutes on top of already waiting 2 hours to zipline, he finally allowed me to zipline. At this point I was so frustrated that I couldnt even enjoy the zipline.

After the zipline, I was on to my next bike ride which was included in the ticket, to find out that there was NO MORE TIME for the other rides. We had to leave to catch our bus shuttle, along with the other 4 groups from The Best of Switzerland. I do not recommend this tour.

We had the best time and a wonderful experience. The drive was lovely. We enjoyed the history given as we made our journey. Lars was our tour guide and he was absolutely phenomenal!!! I can't say enough good things about him. We appreciated his pleasant demeanor, thorough communication and kindness. He truly went above and beyond. He took us to our excursion and showed us the train we would take back. It really reduced my anxiety about getting lost and being stranded. At one point, an older couple in the group but on a different excursion didn't follow instructions properly. He noticed they were following us and they missed their hotel check in. He picked up all their bags and escorted them to their destination. Wow!! We highly recommend the glider, zip and go karts. Super fun. The wait for the zip was about an hour. Be mindful of your time. The meeting location was inside the Starbucks. The instructions weren't clear about that.
