A-MA-ZING!!! Honestly the best experience I’ve ever had. Definitely worth the money and have no regrets booking it. Coming from the UK, staying in Geneva and having to travel into Interlarken we didn’t know what to expect, but we were welcomed by a group of helpful staff that helped us get geared up and ready for the day ahead. The meeting point is clearly displayed outside the store so you should have no problem identifying it. Clothing is very easy to rent and they also provide lockers to store bags while you go up to the mountains. We were taught by Kim who was soooo warm, welcoming and kind. He took his time teaching us, didn’t rush us and allowed us to get comfortable and gain enough confidence to continue snowboarding throughout the whole session. The staff members attitude towards you can have a big impact on the experience and Kim made sure we had a great and unforgettable time so once again THANK YOU KIM! I would 100% recommend these sessions, such a great experience.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!! Words cannot describe how insane this trip was. Minu was our guide and she was simply the best. So knowledgeable and helpful. We were lucky to have a clear day where we could see all the mountains so clearly! The view up was breathtakingly beautiful! The whole day was planned out well and we throroughly loved this excursion so much. It is definitely worth the money as you see and do so much during the day. The highlight was definitely riding a Swiss train through the mountains with the most stunningly breathtaking views. 100% recommend to anyone wanting to see the amazing beauty of Switzerland !!!

This is one of the best activities I have joined and I’m so glad I decided to come event though I was alone. It was well-organized and I learned a lot about Switzerland from the tour guide. I’ve been telling my friends about this for when they come to Switzerland.

The tour to the top of Europe was amazing! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, making the trip even more enjoyable. His passion for his job was evident and he kept the group entertained. It was an unforgettable adventure!

Pedro and Weili were very knowledgeable of the different stages of the journey which made for a informative day out!
