Overall rating

Tour that makes it easy to stop in the towns by the lake, to visit and to take the boat back a little later. The flight attendants are welcoming regardless of the company. The tour easily allows us making stops in the lake cities so you can visit and take another boat 1 or 2 hours later. Staff is welcoming whatever the company.

It was a smooth ride. However the details need to clearer that one needs to board twice in a day for covering both lakes and respective timings. I had to call the get ur guide team to seek clarity.

Brilliant trip. Excellent guide. Informative but not intrusive. Well done. Interlaken and the views along the way are exceptional.
