Very good! Guides are very helpful and good, most especially Weili. If you want to explore jungfrau, you should do this tour.

I don't think you can come to Switzerland and not take this tour. It was pricey but worth it. One of the highlights of a very memorable trip of a lifetime.

It is an amazing tour of the Alps. Highly recommend. The guides were excellent and we felt well looked after. Very worthwhile tour and worth the money! The views are spectacular. The fact that we could cancel 24hrs before and get a full refund was a selling point as well!

Just to be short, we has to spend 220 USD to get back to Luzern in our own. We waited from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM for the tour guide at the meeting point. No one showed up. We thought we were left behind, but it was strange because we were the only ones waiting. Then, we get a call asking where we were, and to get back, really!. The bus was very late and no one let us know. The group is very large about 60-70 people. There was so much confusion with the instructions from the tour guide. Anyways, it was a mess from the start. The bus arrived late, and the driver treated us very rudely, and did not even apologize for being late. We had to paid to get back to Luzern. Between the bus and train, we spend over 220 dollars.

One of the most memorable days I can remember. The Bernese Alps are magnificent, and the trip up to the Jungfraujoch provides views that could only be had otherwise via helicopter. The tour from Luzern was well organized and allowed ample time (over 3 hours) at the top - enough to explore the many viewpoints, tunnels, ice caves/carvings and shops/ restaurants available. The modern and comfortable cog railway cars travel up inside the mountain in an amazing tunnel built in the late 1890's- an engineering marvel of its time.
