About

Plus, you're sure to stay comfortable in any weather during your ride from and to Zurich in a climate-controlled vehicle.

Time for a short stroll in Interlaken before proceeding through Grindelwald to the base of the Alps and viewing the north face of Mt. Eiger. The views of the valley, the surrounding countryside, and Mt. Eiger during the cable ride to Eiderplatz were amazing. The cog rail ride to Jungfraujoch was mostly inside the mountain. The magnificent views from The Sphinx atop Jungfraujoch more than made up for the lack of views during the cog rail tide. The Ice Palace was very cool—figuratively and literally. We were treated to more sensational views of the mountains and valleys as we rode down the mountain to Lauterbrunnen to reboard our bus back to Zurich. Rebecca was knowledgeable about the sights along the way and the mountains. An experience not to be missed!

The guide was very knowledgable and gregarious. However, the guide should be mindful and considerate of all guests' time. When we scheduled the day trip we were told on several ocasions that the bus would return to Zurich by 8 PM
Unfortunately, additional guest pickup in Lucern were late and returning to Lucerne took more time than needed to allow restroom stop and give directions for trains to departing guest. You have to be aware of other guest time constraints who are required COVID testing before returning to the USA. The testing center is located in the main bus parking lot and closes by 9 PM. I explained my concerns to Predo, the guide, and his assistant, Monica. My wife was waiting for me and was concerned that she had missed me or perhaps was in the wrong place. Please by thoughtful and considerate to all of the guest because without patrons you would not have a tour business.

It was indeed a grand experience going to the Top of Europe and I was amazed at the Ice Palace. Some friends of mine have already put it in their bucket lists after I posted it in social media. The drive from Zurich to the top was awesome with beautiful scenery. Catarina was an amazing tour guide. We stopped by Interlaken for an hour and explored the area. I highly recommend this tour. I will definitely come back here with my family so they can experience what I had experienced and would probably add the paragliding activity at Interlaken.

I visited Switzerland in November of this year. I had booked the Grindlewald and Interlaken tour with them.
My guide for the day was Lars. So this bus was actually going to Jungfrau, however you get around an hour's stay at Interlaken
following this they drop you at gridelwald, where you explore grindlewald on your own and catch a train back to Interlaken
where you wait for your bus while the rest of the group leave for Jungfrau. So the group is spit in two at grindelwald.
However, for me the tour was a partially guided tour as you get around an hour at Interlaken with your guide.
Now when we reached Interlaken our guide lars told us you have around 40 mins, please be here after 40 mins. However he
did not tell us where to go and what to do for 40 minutes. There was a girl and myself who asked lars what to do in this 40 minutes,
lars just told us you can walk by the lake and explore the town. However, as we got slightly lost we missed the bus and we had to take a train to Grindlewald.
Now the day before, I went on the mount titlus tour with Anette on the way to titlus we stopped at Lucerne where the guide told us let me take you to the bridge
so we just followed the guide, after this she told us the way to the church. Also, before this I went to the rein falls tour where Peter my guide
took us to stein um rhein, where he told us I am walking through the town and you can follow me. However, Lars did not do any such thing, so if people are
getting lost under his watch then he is not a good guide. lars I feel need some training. Lars ruined my holiday mood. We are not paying lars to just stand there.
We are paying lars to walk us through Interlaken.

Dear Kushal, Thank you very much for joining our tour to Grindelwald & Interlaken and for sharing such an extensive account of your experience with us! As Interlaken is conveniently located along the journey, we offer our guests a break from the 2 ½-hour coach trip from Zurich already behind them. While there is no guided walking tour of Interlaken, the 40 minutes break gives our guests the chance to stretch their legs, enjoy a late breakfast, do some souvenir shopping, or go sightseeing before proceeding to Grindelwald. Unfortunately, we are confronted with delays daily, which is why all our tour guides are instructed to wait for a maximum of 5 minutes at each meeting point. On your travel date, we had 50+ guests that made it back to the bus in time and by holding the bus for longer, we would have risked missing the train we were scheduled for. All guests are provided with an emergency number on their voucher, so they can contact us in case they are running late. Unfortunately, we had only received your call a while after the bus had departed and we mutually agreed that you would buy a train ticket to and from Grindelwald. A partial refund was initiated the very same day through your travel agency GetYourGuide. According to the tour description on GetYourGuide, the tour is partly guided and accompanied from Zurich to Grindelwald and from Interlaken back to Zurich. For the individual stay in Grindelwald and the train ride back to Interlaken, a booklet is provided which contains comprehensive written information about the itinerary of the day, upgrade options, and recommendations of things to do. Compared to our fully guided tours, this tour is catered to more independent travelers that enjoy exploring new destinations with activities of their individual choice. We are sorry to hear that this incident has ruined your holiday, but we believe we have done the best we could to find a solution to help you make the most of your day. We hope that you will keep the other two days on tour with us in best memory and look forward to welcoming you back on tour during your next stay in Switzerland! Best regards, Your Best of Switzerland Tours Team

The scenery was great and it was such an experience to be that high up in the mountains. The train rides were really good. However, it is a very long day and could be improved if the company would allow eating and drinking on the bus as many people had not had time for breakfast as it was such an early start and had brought snacks. When we did stop for coffee, much time was spent looking for a place to have coffee, so by the time we found somewhere, it was nearly time to get back on the bus. The guide could have been much more proactive in telling people where they could go for coffee and it would have been better if the bus could have dropped us there. All in all, a good day but room for improvement to make the experience better for tourists.

Dear Sue321, Thank you very much for sharing your experience of your trip to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful scenery and would like to go into the criticized points in more detail. With a total duration of 12 hours, our day tour to Jungfraujoch is our longest day trip from Zürich. For guests that do not want to get up early for breakfast, our stopover in Interlaken offers a break from the 2-hour journey from Zürich already behind them and the perfect opportunity to have a late breakfast, to do some shopping or to go sightseeing before proceeding. As the bus stops in the middle of the city centre, various cafés are easy to reach within walking distance. Many of our guests highly appreciate the cleanliness of our buses, which can only be guaranteed by following certain rules of conduct. While we can totally understand your wish to eat and drink on the bus, we believe that it is also a question of consideration for other guests who do not necessarily share your pleasure in coffee and food scents. We hope that you were able to enjoy a wonderful stay in Switzerland and look forward to welcoming you back on our tours on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

This tour had great views, but that’s just the beauty of Switzerland! I will say that the tour itself was mediocre and not worth almost 300USD. It’s a full day tour and you’re expected to not eat or drink on the bus. You’re given about an hour in Interlaken to eat a snack but that isn’t enough time to get food and then tour around the city. The cable car from Grindelwald and seeing Jungfraujoch was amazing! It’s definitely do-able by yourself and not go through this tour.

Dear mahalways, Thank you very much for participating in our day tour to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe from Zürich. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the Bernese Oberland and the Jungfraujoch in particular. With a total duration of 12 hours, our tour to Jungfraujoch is our longest day trip from Zürich. Many of our guests highly appreciate the cleanliness of our buses, which can only be guaranteed by following certain rules of conduct. While we can totally understand your wish to eat and drink on the bus, we believe that it is also a question of consideration for other guests who might not be equally fond of coffee or food scents on the bus. However, our stopover in Interlaken offers our guest a break from the 2-hour journey from Zürich already behind them and the perfect opportunity to grab a snack, to do some shopping or to go sightseeing before proceeding. On top of Jungfraujoch, there are also various restaurants as well as a snack bar available for lunch. We regret to hear that you felt that the tour was not worth your money. While it is certainly possible to visit Jungfraujoch individually by public transport, you would have to change trains no fewer than 9 times (Zürich – Jungfraujoch – Zürich) and would not benefit from the special group rates we offer (total price without Swiss pass: approx. CHF 350.-). Also, having a tour guide with you, who serves as a direct contact person in case of any occurring questions, is a reason why many people opt for a guided tour instead of an individual visit. We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful stay in Switzerland and look forward to welcoming you back on our tour on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

A must-do trip. Departed in the morning from a bus parking area near Zurich HB. The tour was led by an English speaking and a Mandarin-speaking guide. Both Mingmin and Olivia were great, helpful and outgoing. They provided great commentary en route to Jungfraujoch, The coach stopped in Luzern and Interlaken to pick up some more passengers. The weather was epic on the day and the scenery along the way just could not be any better. On the top of the mountain, there were some choices for lunch, but always useful to prepare some snacks and water as this is very high altitude. The tour was really relaxed, which is the right way to travel. Absolutely would bring my family to do it again.

My family and I decided to come to Switzerland for the first time ever and this tour was just amazing. Our tour guide was very helpful and she even spoke to us in Spanish (since my mom and my dad are hispanics and only understand Spanish). It was very lovely, the organization and how everything was handle was delightful. I fully recommend it 100% if you ever want to experience the alps region.

This is a fantastic day trip from Zurich passing through Lucerne, a good look around Interlaken and a fabulous trip up Jungfraujoch. 0800 start from Zurich coach station..very well organised start and the 2 hour drive to Interlaken with very good commentary on the way about the region and Swiss culture. Around 1 hour quick view around Interlaken with some stunning views. Then around 30 minutes to Jungfraujoch then cable car and train to top of the mountain. Luckily it was a beautiful clear day so views were spectacular..remember it can be -6c even in May at the top. The guide was excellent and overall this is a fantastic day trip from Zurich.

I must say this was well worth the price.
The guide was incredible, switched between languages like I dont know what and was very knowledgeable. We felt quite mountain sick but the guide assured us we were ok as he was himself quite sick each time. This is a once in a lifetime tour. Well organised and we are thrilled with it. Many thanks to you Best of Swiss.
