I was worried about taking this trip after reading the reviews about the guide kid..we had Ramon and it was an amazing adventure so glad I chose to go.

What a great day trip! It was a long day but well worth it. It gives you a chance to see the countryside on the way to Jungfraujoch. It’s a great alternative to renting a car. We were fortunate enough to get Beatrice Freiermuth as our guide. She is a lovely woman that speaks 5 languages. Great personality and extremely knowledgeable of the history and culture of Switzerland (She grew up in the area). My husband and I really enjoyed the adventure. I highly recommend!

The entire trip was breathtaking. It was a cloudy and snowy day, which limited the view at the top but it was still beautiful. The train ride, gondola ride, even the coach were great. Bea and Armando were great guides/driver. Bea was patient and told lots of stories to help us understand the small towns we passed by and the local community. Great tour. Thank you so much!
