The trip was great. Ken was super on top of getting us the best spots on the trains and gondola. He made sure we got a ton of the best pics. He is a little rough around the edges but it is for a reason. He really made sure we got our moneys worth. Totally recommend.

Amazing experience, this was a highlight of our trip, luckily there was a perfectly clear sky so the views were incredible. At the beginning it felt extremely rushed by the guide however it was important to be on time to catch each train going up the mountain. It takes a while to get used to Kidd the guide and his antics and wit, but he tries to make the experience the best for everyone.

What a fantastic trip, I am glad that I read the reviews frist, as I was forewarned about Kid. A fantastic experienced tour guide, he knows all of the places to get the best photos and videos, he gets you where you need to go in double time so you don't spend hours queuing, thus more time enjoying the experience, but he is a force of nature, that some people did struggle with. be warned, he is a diva who is an expert at hearding cats, he takes no prisoners, but gets results. On the other hand he noticed that a member of our party had an ankle injury and was struggling to keep up, as such he made a point of holding her hand and kept checking that she was ok, so that she didn't get left behind. We went to some fantastic, beutiful places and Jungfraujoch is breathtaking, well worth it, and thanks to kid, we have some amazing photos to look back on.

We had 36 of us take a day trip from Lucerne to the Jungfraujoch and it was a fantastic day! We left early morning and drove through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Lauterbrunnen valley. We took two different trains up to the mountains until we reached the Jungfraujoch. We had lunch in the Crystal Cafe which was a sufficient meal. Wasn't bad at all, but nothing to get excited about. We visited the Ice Caves which was really cool and went out on the viewing platform, however, it was snowing and a complete white-out, so we could not see a thing from there! So, no mountain/glacier vista views that day unfortunately. But everyone enjoyed it none the less. Definitely felt that altitude up there! They do offer cans of oxyegen for sale if you have any issues breathing. I'm in relatively good health and the breathing affected me a bit at certain points, but nothing serious. One of our group members passed out momentarily and fell down, but came out of it quickly. Another person (not in our group) passed out at the train station on the way back and did not regain consciousness while we were there. They had to call for medical assistance. (a bit scary to witness). We then took the cable car back down the rest of the way to meet our bus. This was a spectacular day tour and I highly recommend it. (our tour was a private tour just for our group, but I believe they offer similar day tours through La Vacanza Travel/Project Expedition etc)
