Tour guide on Christmas Day was amazing. A Swiss local; spoke good English and had tons of information, and took on most questions about the area easily. She covered a wide range of topics from local sightseeing, to sports, to history about William Tell, Swiss ‘sumo’ wrestling and politics. The tour provided ample time at the peak and lots of freedom to self-explore. I usually like doing things on my own, but there were quite a few transportation changes involved that the logistics would have taken up valuable vacation time. My fellow tourists were also a fun lot.

The trip was excellent!! The trip manager , Conrad, was knowledgeable and friendly, kept the group together. The 12 hour trip left and returned to Zurich ON TIME! Vistas at the Jungfrau we’re Spectacular.

I visited Switzerland in November of this year. I had booked the Grindlewald and Interlaken tour with them. My guide for the day was Lars. So this bus was actually going to Jungfrau, however you get around an hour's stay at Interlaken following this they drop you at gridelwald, where you explore grindlewald on your own and catch a train back to Interlaken where you wait for your bus while the rest of the group leave for Jungfrau. So the group is spit in two at grindelwald. However, for me the tour was a partially guided tour as you get around an hour at Interlaken with your guide. Now when we reached Interlaken our guide lars told us you have around 40 mins, please be here after 40 mins. However he did not tell us where to go and what to do for 40 minutes. There was a girl and myself who asked lars what to do in this 40 minutes, lars just told us you can walk by the lake and explore the town. However, as we got slightly lost we missed the bus and we had to take a train to Grindlewald. Now the day before, I went on the mount titlus tour with Anette on the way to titlus we stopped at Lucerne where the guide told us let me take you to the bridge so we just followed the guide, after this she told us the way to the church. Also, before this I went to the rein falls tour where Peter my guide took us to stein um rhein, where he told us I am walking through the town and you can follow me. However, Lars did not do any such thing, so if people are getting lost under his watch then he is not a good guide. lars I feel need some training. Lars ruined my holiday mood. We are not paying lars to just stand there. We are paying lars to walk us through Interlaken.

The tour from Zurich was packed and well organised. Our tour guides and the driver were very friendly. A little expensive but it was all worth it. I would like to do this again but on summer time!
