I really enjoyed the Trip. Our guide Maude was very helpful. She gave a commentary from the time we pulled out of the bus parking lot until we got to each activity. I personally enjoy learning about the towns and sites we are just passing by as well as the destination. Dan was also another guide on the trip who was very helpful hearing the group.

The stops were wonderful, I only wish we had more time at each one. Jungfraujoch was magnificent. I loved the Ice tunnels.

Had a magnificent time. Long bus and train rides from Zurich, but the experience was well worth it. Our guides were very informative and easy to understand. And the bus driver was very skilled along the mountainous terrain. Simply put, Awesome.

Great trip. Our guide Minu was fantastic. She was thorough in her explanations. It is a very long day, 12 hours, but it is worth it. We had a great time.

The tour was very well organized, with Swiss precision! From Zurich, there were a few stops, in Lucerne and Interlaken for additional pickups. We spent 40 minutes in Interlaken to walk around main street, and 2+ hours at the main attraction, atop of Jungfraujoch, it was stunningly beautiful.
