It's a beautiful cog wheel train ride. Interlaken is a beautiful city to go through, top of the mountain is exciting enough. What could be improved is more engaging description from the tour guide.

Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and we did not get any views of the mountains from the top. However it was still a great day out. The ice palace was great and the train journey was really nice. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and took lots of photos for everyone in our group. would definitely recommend this tour.

Fantastic day trip. Our guide Kid was fantastic - he tells you exactly the best moment to take photos, takes photos for you and even takes photos with his own professional camera (and airdrops them to you on the way home). The mountain gets cold so make sure you bring a ski jacket, beanie and gloves (some people did not and looked very cold). Lots to see at the top of the mountain but there is enough time to see it all on the tour.

Beautiful place. Its a long journey from Zurich but its worth a trip. Bus, trains and host were excellent. Our host was helpful (sometimes; too much :) ) but no complaints. All scheduled stuff went smooth and of course I didnt feel that I am rushed though additional time on the top will be helpful. Overall thumbs up !!!!
