Our guides Bruno and Ping made the trip memorable. Very knowledgeable and super helpful. The trip was expensive but was worth it. We had a fabolous time and weather was kind. The pics don’t from La Vacanza Travel don’t do the trip justice. Please update pics from each leg for other clients to be convinced why it’s worth it. Don’t miss this trip

The tour was organised by Best Switzerland tours.. we joined the Jungfraujoch tour on May 10th from Zurich. Our guides were Ms. Monica and Mr. Gonzalez.. The tour started on time at 8 am in a comfortable coach until Grindelwald. From there on the way to Jungfrau we took a cable car with extremely scenic views of the Alps. We got down at the Eiger station and took the top of Europe, Eiger Express train which scaled up to 3250 metres. This was a scintillating experience and the scenery were breathtaking. The Jungfrau station was well done with the Sphinx observatory, Ice Palace, Alpine station providing exciting times for all of us. We got a chance to get to Top of Europe and see the Jungfrau peak - ~4000+ m in height. The entire place is well maintained and is definitely worth the experience and money spent. I strongly recommend anyone visiting Switzerland to visit the Jungfraujoch. Ms. Monica from Best Switzerland Tours was the best tour guide we have witnessed ever with some much of information throughout the journey, talking about places, culture, food and kept us continuously engaged throughout the 12 hour tour. We came back to the starting point around 830 PM and was a day to remember for our lifetime!

Jorge was a great tour guide, my partner and I had a a wonderful experience. We came across a hold up in the trip but they were able to adjust fast. The journey is long but well worth the time. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling through this region.

This was truly a once in a lifetime trip and worth the money. It does make for a long day though. We were actually gone almost 14 hours because we had to wait on people who were not on time returning to the bus and we had to reroute due to streets that were blocked. We also had another group that went part way with us. We had to drop them off and pick them up at the end which seemed like a waste of time for the rest of us. We were tired and ready to get home. Our guide was really friendly and spoken several languages but she was sometimes hard to understand. Overall it was a very good experience.

We joined the tour In Interlaken for the Jungfrau Top of Europe tour. The guides were experienced, the transfers were seamless which allowed us to fully enjoy the experience. We learned so much about this beautiful area and the experience of being on Too of Europe was second to none. Just take this tour you won’t regret it.
