This was a fantastic adventure. Our tour guide Annette was so knowledgable and helpful, giving us lots of interesting information and explained each part of the day brilliantly. Sweets before we arrived at Jungfrauhoch were really helpful as we did feel slightly lightheaded due to the altitude. It was a shame that the snow fun areas were shut due to poor visibility and stormy weather. However we still enjoyed stunning views and it was an excellent day trip!

I am disappointed i am not allowed to rate it 10 stars on 5 . I absolutely loved this tour and would say that this tour will get you to the best scenery and experience in Switzerland. Strongly recommend for tourists who have 2 - e days in Switzerland and may not be comfortable exploring on their own. Must do trip. I have been to Titlis too. If you have two days, suggest do both. If you only one day - this should be your preference.

It was worth it. Such a long journey from Zurich, but the view was magical. Monica and Weili have a lot of knowledges and also care for us, they gave us a lot of information about everything along the journey. It was a well planned trip :)

you can tell everyone you were at the top of europe ! we had a snowball fight in july ! some people went tubing and snowboarding and skiing - very interesting exhibits and a well organized full day

Amazing experience! Very friendly and informative guide. Excellent restaurant and breathtaking view.
