The weather was forecast to be bad and it was! We had rain and cold temperatures. We spent the day trying to stay dry and ended up spending the last hours in a public building out of the r@in. The bus back to Zurich was 20 minutes late picking us up, and when you are wet and cold that is a long time. The response from the guide who was on the bus… “not so cold here, I just have a shirt on?????” I would recommend that when forecast is for bad weather, you cancel this excursion.

Top of Europe was a nice experience and Interlaken is very beautiful. Paragliding is a must do for sure! Maybe next time 😊

This day trip with the highlight of our week stay in Switzerland. My wife and I cannot say enough good things about it. The Alps are just breathtaking, and Grindelwald and Interlaken are beautiful towns to visit. We plan on doing this again on our next trip to Switzerland next year!!

The trip was very pleasant. My friend and I went to the top of the mountain in Grindelwald via cable car and it was breathtaking. The only issue I had was that the guide was not clear on where the pickup location was once we arrived at Interlaken to go back to Zurich. The flyer that was handed out stated a location and that was not where the pickup was. Although we were there 45 minutes early we almost didn't make the bus to go back. That was stressful.
