This was by far the best day in Switzerland and the tour guides were awesome. They make sure you are well informed about most of the locations you pass by as well as the timings to get back for boarding the bus back to Zurich. We really enjoyed exploring Grindelwald at our own pace, and getting back to Interlaken was easy too as train tickets were already provided to us. We had ample time to explore both the places. The drive from and back to Zurich was fun too! I would definitely want to take another trip with the same company. Highly recommended.

Nice day trip to Grindelwald & Interlaken. But I didn't understand why we stopped at Interlaken very early in the morning for an hour because we came to this city afternoon again and had 2 more hours. It would be better to go Grindelwald first, spend the day there and come back to Interlaken and spend more time. We were also not offered to upgrade our journey to Top of Europe experience. It can be asked to visitors since we had no option to upgrade it on getyourguide website.

It was a nice leisurely day at both locations. Our guide and bus driver were great. In hindsight, we wish we would have pre arranged the paragliding. We did buy a lift ticket in Grindelwald and did the cliff walk. I highly recommend doing that. Then eat in Interlaken at the end of the day. Of the 2 cities there is more to do in Grindelwald

Excellent friendly guide who found me when I was lost excellent knowledge of the areas

Beautiful scenery.. Amazing tour guides Always on time
