Minus 13 degrees Celsius at over 11,000 feet high. Once in a lifetime experience! Great Gondola ride to get to the top of mountain.

A must do. Was the best tour we did on our 5 week trip. Most incredible place with the best views. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I liked him.

Too many stops along the way. One in Lucern to pick up passengers, and washroom stops. Very disappointed that the bus did not have a working washroom. I did confirm prior to booking the trip that indeed there was a washroom. But it wasn’t until we boarded, that we told the bathroom was not in order. So, the driver had to make a few stops on the way for restroom breaks. Also, you need coins to use the washroom at one stop which was challenging as we had just arrived the day before to Zurich and didn’t have any change. Due to a storm that developed we had to take trains down the mountain. It would have been helpful to have a number to text our guide to advise where we were, as we all got split up. We had no idea where to meet our bus either. Also, Some passengers were not at one of the pickup spots, and the guides had no way to verify where they were. Our guide Santiago was amazing as well as our driver Francesco.
