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.

This day trip was amazing and the staff exceptional! My husband lost his phone out the window on the way down and the staff went above and beyond to find it, which they did. Highly recommend using them.

We had a good weather, even though the forecast said it would be cloudy with no visibility. We were lucky!
