My 25 year old daughter and I took this tour earlier this month while staying in Interlaken, and it is well worth it! I had previously checked in to doing this on our own, but found it was much easier - and less expensive - to do it as a tour. Cold at the very top, but it's about 13,000 ft altitude, with snow and glacier. Magnificent views! The ice palace was our favorite, so beautiful and impressive. Our guide made it easy to make it to all the spots and see everything. The only downside was that we only had an hour for lunch and shopping; we could've used and extra half hour or so, but other than that we had a fabulous time. Highly recommend!!

Our trip to the Jungfraujoch was fantastic. We had the perfect weather. The views are breathtaking. Our guide was knowledgeable and the tour was explained in Spanish, English and German. Some remarks I would make are the following: The meeting point in Interlaken was not very clear, the bathroom situation in Interlaken and on top was rather nasty even though on our day the crowed was not at its maximum. We understand that everything has to be brought up to the Jungfraujoch but for the price we paid we expected a bit more cleanliness. As a Swiss citizen, I wish we can do better.

What a special time!!! The views were magnificent. Our guide Annabele was clear, very helpful, and personable. What a great day.

This was like being in a postal card. The views were the best ones of my life. The kids enjoyed a lot as well, althought the altitude made them a little sick. The weather was so hot when we have started the trip and we were in snow at the top... Impressing trip for the whole family... Must do for everyone...

It was an excellent visit to the Jungfrau tour was an excellent experience and luckily the weather was also very good and we had a really good time thanks Viator.

This tour is definitely a must see! The scenery on the way up to the mountain is breathtaking. The tour was very organized and the tour guides are very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, there was an incident where our portable router was taken by someone. This has nothing to do with the tour by the way. However, the actions of our tour guide, CLAUDIA, helped us to get it back. She went above and beyond, and way out of the scope of her duties to have it returned, even long after my family and I returned home. I would definitely do this tour again even after what happened. Just like everywhere you go, you must be vigilant and this was a lesson I learned. Thank you Claudia for your time and effort. You alone made this tour even better!

We had a great time. Everything was very smooth. We were lucky to have a gorgeous day and took advantage of the sledding and tubing on the top of the mountain. If you know the area you could do this trip on your own and give yourself a little more time. However, doing a group tour was very easy.

An amazing day and an amazing trip! We celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary on the top of Europe! The beautiful green valleys approaching the Alps and the snow white Alpine peaks were majestic. Our tour guide something like Anti but I forget her name was constantly sharing information in three languages, kept us all together, and pointed out upcoming sites so we could get our cameras ready. She was a wonderful tour guide. The trip itself was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. We loved Switzerland, the Alps, the Sunny B and B that we stayed at in Interlaken, the food and drinks, and the hosts at the B and B. Overall, a wonderful three days and we will definitely return someday.

We had a great time and our guides were fantastic. They were knowledable about the glacier and mountains and knew other interesting facts. The glacier was amazing to see!

Although it takes longer to get to the top of the mountain than you get to spend at the top, it was a good experience! We were lucky and had a clear day that had amazing views! Marcel was our guide and he was very clear and a great guide. Definitely an experience worth having! Make sure you go to the Ice Palace, it’s very cool!

Good tour. Long one and can get tiring though. But if you need to get to the top of europe you need to put some effort. This trip is amazing..!

This tour is indeed amazing. Firstly the team is excellent. The guide speaks your language and tells you important highlights about the whole place. Then, they take you around in the cogwheel where everything is managed very well and then once your are all the way up they give you enough time to roam about. We took the tour last week and we were delayed by 15 minutes because our train connection from Italy got delayed. But the authorities were very cooperative and asked us to wait at the Interlaken railway station from where we were picked up. Because of this immense cooperation from their side we could be a part of this tour and shall always cherish the wonderful moments we experienced at the Top of Europe. It was indeed amazing, we recommend strongly!

Great Tour! Nice buses. We met all our connections on time.Lots of photo ops on the way up, at the top and on the way down. Valerie was a very knowledgeable tour guide.
• Submitted 04 Oct 2017
The views are spectacular! The timing in between was nicely planned, and ample time to go round the area once we were at the top of the mountain. Only downside i experienced was the high altitude sickness that makes me really uncomfortable. Remember to keep yourself hydrated!

Enjoyed the trip. The tour guide provided excellent information and kept us on track. She provided flexibility to enjoy the site. She was very friendly and kind.

It turned out to be the best weather! We could see clearly to very far. Any tiny bit of cloud didn't interrupt us at top of Europe. From Interlaken to all the way to the top, the beautiful scenery made us say WOW and WOW constantly. We were so busy taking photos and seeing in front of or on the other side us. It is definitely worth to do tour. Overwhelmed the number of tourists, but we were able to enjoy our tours as train and bus seats were reserved for the group. I can still remember the day clearly. Wishing to go there again.
