Stop At: Bahnhofstrasse 25-5 3800, 3800 Interlaken, Switzerland

You’ll feel as if you’ve entered a fairy tale as you stare at the sheer beauty of the white jagged mountains above Bern, a range known as the Bernese Alps. The scenery is truly mesmerizing, and it only gets better!

We had an amazing day.; the weather was perfect for our trip up the mountain. Marcel was very knowledgeable and fun. He kept things moving and was easy to approach. The bus was extremely nice; the trains were great; and the ice castle was spectacular.

I feel so ashamed in myself that I can't remember our tour guide's name but she was amazing! She was so helpful in so many ways. She was very sweet and spoke many languages which was very useful. She made us feel very welcome and her energy was great. The trip to the Alps was breathtaking! Words can't describe. Thank you for the experience!!

What a great opportunity to experience the alps in person, even if staying in the city. Just a fantastic tour all around, from strolling through Interlaken to the cog wheel trains up the mountain, and standing outside on top of the Jungfrau- tremendous Swiss experience. Note that it is an ALL day tour, but well worth it

The views were amazing and our tour guide Marcel was witty, informative and helpful. The downside is that this is a 12 hour trip and the tour company did not allow food to be consumed on the bus. With scant time to eat along the way (you could eat at some of the stops but doing so left you without time to tour) this was an issue by the end of the day. Despite that issue, I would highly recommend this tour.
