Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Sihlquai, Sihlstrasse 41, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland

Head to the Sihlquai Bus Terminal near the Zurich train station in the morning to meet your guide — who speaks English and Spanish — and board your luxury coach.

Stop At: Bahnhofstrasse 25/5 3800, 3800 Interlaken, Switzerland

Relax on the scenic drive through the Bernese Oberland, touted as one of the most idyllic regions in Switzerland.

After a 2-hour drive, arrive in Interlaken in the heart of the Jungfraujoch region. Break here for a quick stop in this famous town, situated between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz.


Duration: 50 minutes

Pass By: Grund Railway Station, Grundstrasse 61, 3818 Grindelwald, Switzerland

Then, continue driving to the nearby village of Grindelwald. Board the cogwheel train here for a jaw-dropping ride to Kleine Scheidegg, a mountain pass located at the foot of Switzerland’s most impressive Alpine panorama.

Stop At: Kleine Scheidegg, Berner Oberland Switzerland

Enjoy amazing views of the famous triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau as you ride halfway up the mountain.

The top of the mountain reaches an astounding 11,750 feet (3,454 meters) above sea level. Ideal for those who are afraid of heights, this tour only takes you halfway up, to 6,762 feet (2,061 meters). But don’t worry, this won’t compromise the scenery; from Kleine Scheidegg, you’ll be treated to sweeping vistas of the Bernese Alps and unbeatable views of the famous Eiger North Face, featured in films such as The Eiger Sanction starring Clint Eastwood.

You’ll have several hours of free time here to explore and take in the sensational Alpine environment. This area offers something for everyone: take a self-guided hike along the easily accessible Jungfrau Eiger Walk (several seasonal trails of moderate difficulty open late June to October); snap photos of the rock and ice masses of Eiger Glacier; or head to one of several local restaurants to enjoy some regional cuisine (own expense).

In the afternoon, meet your guide and board the train for the descent to Lauterbrunnen.

Duration: 4 hours

Pass By: Sihlquai, Sihlstrasse 41, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland

Pass the holiday resort town of Wengen, known for events such as the Lauberhorn Races and Jungfrau Marathon. Then board the coach and return to Zurich in the evening.

Really excellent tour. Options exit so you can determine when to get off on the way up the mountain. Fantastic views.

I have to say this trip was beyond extraordinary. Our tour guides were highly knowledgeable and provided us with a lifetime experience. the great thing with this tour is that you actually have the option to change and do the top of the mountain but my friend and I decided to stay with this tour and I am hands down glad did I did. we were able to hike independently and experience the most amazing views. I would highly recommend this to anyone!!

We enjoyed a full day on this tour leaving out of Zurich. The bus ride was comfortable and the stops along the way were nice breaks before boarding a cog train to Kleine Scheidegg. Our guide was helpful but not overbearing. We opted to hike up 1000 meters and really enjoyed being in high altitude and cool temperatures. The train town was small but had a restaurant and gifts shops. While many others went to the top, we were glad after talking to others that we had the chance to hike and not just view the scenery. We really enjoyed our trip and it was worth the time and money. Great memory!

This trip was awesome! The guide was great, very knowledgeable and a good sense of humor. The only down side was that we didn't have any time to look around Kleine Scheidegg. Would highly recommend!!!

I'm so glad I decided to add the rest of the mountain to my trip. Definitely DO IT. Pedro was so helpful with that and did a great job overall. He knew his stuff. To be on the glacier, to see the cloud shadows dance over the landscape. Wonderful!!

Tour guide Fernando was fantastic. I like that he let us have a lot of free time to go around by ourselves. Answered all my questions. Reassured my friend who is scared of heights that Jungfraujoch is doable and worth it. Thank you so much for a memorable tour! Excellent and highly recommended. Don't let the cost dissuade you Zurich is one of the most expensive places in Europe. Go to the top of Europe via this tour company, especially Fernando - it's worth it.

We enjoyed this tour a great deal. We were blessed with fantastic weather. We opted for the 12 hour tour of Bernese Oberland and Jungfrau excursion. It was definitely fantastic! Although there was some fog in the valleys in the morning, once we got to the rail station the fog had burned off. Having the sunshine during the viewing could not have been more perfect. Peter was our guide and he did a great job of narrating and answering any questions. The scenery on the way up and back and the view from the top was some of the was breath taking and some of the most magnificent we have ever seen! As with any mountain vistas, assuming the weather is clear, I would definitely recommend this tour!!!

Thanks to our tour guide Minu...we were convinced to upgrade our tour and go all the way to the top! Incredible experience :)

We first bought the tour only to Kleine Scheidegg, but the tour guide Fernando convinced us (after giving us plenty of info on what to do at Kleine Scheidegg stop -there are a few hiking trails to choose from that you can do) to continue to Jungfraujoch, and we didn't regret at all. Recommended!

Very well organized. Informative and pleasant guide. Breath taking scenery. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time during this trip. The guide was very knowledgable and gave us good information about what we were seeing. We did not go all the way to the top and really enjoyed the quite time walking around. Went part way up the walk to the lake which the North Face overlooks....beautiful.... The only issue was the bus driver (Daniel) advised the bathroom in the coach was only for emergencies. Considering you on this bus for a very long time, we found this unacceptable. Other than....highly recommend.

Very exhilarating. Awesome! I would highly recommend this experience.
• Submitted 05 Sep 2014
The views are stunning! One thing to note is that you can do the trip yourself by buying the train tickets, but you miss the english/spanish guide. Another thing is that the majority of the group went to the top Jungfraujoch, which is double the price, with only me and 2 other tourists that stayed half way through the top at Kleine Schedegg. I could enjoy the 4hr wait by taking pictures and skiing, but not everyone will be happy with this since the options you have are limited, skiing, hiking or waiting.

the tour is good very scenic, last stop before the train to Jungfraujoch . If your taking this tour better to include the Jungfraujoch for the highlight of this is the top of the mountain .

The communication of travel time was a disappointment and we were informed that the start time was 8:30am and the bus left at 8:00am. We reached reached the designated bus pick-up point by 8:15am. However, to make up our travel company put us on another tour operators bus and we had to pay additional 50 euro each and we joined our group at interlaken. The experience from interlaken to Bernese Oberland and junfroujoch was good with beautiful scenery and the majestic alps in the backdrop but we feel the extra charge was like a ransom as did not have any other option since we were short of time. In future, we expect better customer service in case of a communication lapse. Best of Switzerland were the only operator who did not call a day in advance to confirm departure timings. Globally, We have had a great experience with travel companies associated with Viator
