Never in my life witnessed such an amazing scenery! Highly recommended! Apart from the captivating views and clean air the hospitality shown by Milo and especially Lars were exceptional, truly the embodiment of hospitality!

Great time! Really beautiful. We didn't get much instruction how to find the suggested activities in Grindelwald (I don't think?), and when we eventually got there they were all sold out. So that was a bummer. And the gondola ride and all the activities are hecka expensive. But we had a wonderful experience at the top, and met great people.

Great trip and guide! Conveniently located to step on with great recommendations for the independent part of the day. Easy to meet up with bus. Doesn’t seem to be a need to go to Interlaken first just to see the meeting place. Would have had time to do both the First tram and glacier is trip had gone straight to Grindelwald. Wonderful day!
