It was a very good trip. Blue sky and sun in February helped. The guide and coach driver were both first class as were the views and the train ride up the mountain. The stop in Interlaken however was a bit rushed. For us the only issue was the amount of time we spent in Grindelwald. A beautiful small town but perhaps only needed 2 hours max including lunch.
In this trip the guide will buy the train tickets and leave you alone. So it is not a tour anyone can do it on his expense. Viator should inform before booking.
Amazing trip to the Jungfrau Glacier Panaroma View at the snow village of Kline Schidegg. We enjoyed a special day in the Alps and had the picture perfect ski village experience. My only small recommendation is to make it clear when booking that you don't go all the way to the top as I expected when I booked the trip. In our case it all worked out great, however, on the day of the trip, we didn't realize we were not going all the way to the top. Perhaps adding a line in the day trip description clearly stating that this tour does not go to the top might be helpful for those planning a future trip. Otherwise, it was picture perfect.
The tour was amazing. We had a small group so our guide treated us well. We went up to the top and were very glad we did. It was cold outside up at the top but we loved it!
Overall, the tour was OK. The tour guide was pretty rude from the beginning. You have an opportunity to see views of the many lakes that are surrounding the Alps, but unless you are sitting on the right side of the bus and able to snap pictures within 5 seconds while the bus is speeding through, you will not be able to capture it. There is no option to capture it on the return trip because it is after dark. The tour company should consider at least a 10-15 minute stop to allow for tourists to take photos of the lake and mountains. If you are opting to do this tour without the Top of Europe option, you will have a chance to explore 3 different areas. The first stop is one step above snoozeville. The train only leaves once an hour, so after you force yourself to walk around the small town and take as many repetitive photos as possible, it is time to go! The next stop is where you will see the panoramic view of the mountains. It is BEAUTIFUL! There is a restaurant there, but be prepared to have to pay with your firstborn child because the prices are that outrageous! If you are interested in skiing, this is where you could take advantage of it because you will have plenty of time if you manage your time smartly. The final stop is another snoozeville. I opted to hike through the glacier town. Clearly, my idea of seeing glaciers was different from what this town had to offer. There are plenty of shops if you are interested in that. Plenty of restaurants. The town itself is pretty quiet. I'd recommend hiking through the town to waste time. You are given 6 hours of free time without a guide between the beginning of the tour to the final pick-up. I am glad that I got to see the Swiss Alps, but I would not recommend this tour and would not do it again.
