This trip has so much to it. The cog wheel train ride, the views from the Sphinx observatory, viewing and walking onto a glacier, the ice tunnel, and food and drink at 11,333 feet. It was an incredible experience. Our guide was very informative along the way and added to the trip. The only downside to the whole day is the shuttle bus ride there and back, if you get car sick easily this will be rough, as the trip goes over the alps and is very winding at higher speeds. However, even with that the trip is worth the time and money.

Edwardo, our guide to Jungfraujoch, was superb. Lots of knowledge, friendly and easy to understand. He handled the large group speaking several languages with ease. But the Jungfraujoch was truly the star of the trip. We had a perfect day, clear blue skies, temperatures in the 1-3C range and a light breeze. For a mid-October day, we could not have wished for more, the views were stunning. Left us overwhelmed. The walk to the snow side was fun as was the Ice Palace walk. The only suggestion is to announce that people can sit anywhere they want on coach on the return trip. Because we got the bus in Lucerne, we rode in the top of the double-decker bus but on the way back found seats on the lower level, easier on our old bodies. But this upset one couple who expected the same seats.

This was an amazing tour! We were fortunate to have sunny and clear skies which made the experience even better. The views from the Sphinx observatory and the cogwheel trains were spectacular, the tour guide was very informative and helpful, the stop and Interlaken was great and we had plenty of time to see everything we wanted to see.
