A beautiful tour to one of Switzerland's most magnificent Alpine regions!

The guided coach tour takes you on scenic routes to Interlaken at the foot of the snow-covered Alps of the Bernese Oberland. After some time at leisure in Interlaken journey to the well-known holiday resort of Grindelwald, which is nick-named the 'Glacier Village'. You will have enough time to explore this region on your own.

An optional cable car ride (operates only late May - late October) to the sunny terrace of Mt. First at 2168m / 7113 ft is recommended - for a breathtaking panorama of the Bernese Alps. In the late afternoon meet your coach and guide for the return journey to Zurich.

Was in Interlaken and Grindelwald last week and it is an amazing place indeed. Was snowing most of the time and it makes the place look magical. The stop in Interlaken is too small and that is something I did not like about it as it would have been nice to spend a couple of hours in Interlaken, that I was disappointed about, apart from that the company was great and enjoyed the tour. There are only 2 companies that operate these tours and this one grey line are the best for sure. I booked also a tour with the other company called best of switzerland but the tour was a total disorganisation, would not recommend that at all.

Interlaken was absolutely beautiful, full of shops and eatery overlooking the mountains. Once we got to Grindelwald, it felt like heaven on earth! The alps were simply breathtaking! Bus tour ride was a fair distance but totally worth it!

Although this was the trip we had pre-purchased, our tour guide, Kid great reviews in other postings and we weren't disappointed told us that because of the time of year it was, not everything was open in Grindelwald and he suggested we do the Jungfrau mountains instead. Since the rest of the bus travelers were doing that one, we agreed. It was the best decision we made. We had had rain most of our trip in Germany and it appeared to be stopping in Switzerland - but we took the train over 11,000 feet up over the clouds and the sky was a perfect blue and the mountains were the Swiss Alps we had been looking for. Kid was fantastic as he guided us through the various levels, the ice palace, and key photo opportunities. Our pictures were spectacular. I highly recommend this trip and if you do plan for it, be sure to wear gloves, warm shoes/boots with good traction on ice, and drink a lot of water because the thin air at 11k may affect you. It did me, but not most of the others in the group. It was little hard for me to breathe but there were plenty of places to sit and rest. Regardless, the pictures are priceless and the scenery was spectacular. I hope you get Kid as your guide because he's so great at this.

This tour was self exploration. We were taken by a comfortable coach to both interlaken and Grindelwald. We were able to do our own exploring in these regions.

We had the best time and glad we upgraded to see the Top of Europe! Our tourist guide KID is the best!!! My husband and I still rave about him up to this day! The places we saw are amazingly beautiful!

Excellent tour, the mountains in Grindelwald were absolutely incredible! It was honestly the most beautiful place we have even been to in our lives. The only disappointing thing was that we were not able to do the zipline from the top of the mountain to the bottom, as unfortunately the waiting time would be too long before our tour was leaving about 2 hours . If it is possible to arrange pre-purchased tickets to eliminate or reduce the waiting time, that would be great. But overall a tour which we would highly recommend!

I liked the sites we saw on this tour, and that we could do this on our own. We visited Interlaken and had enough time to grab a quick lunch and walk around some. The rest of the time was spent on our own in Grindelwald, and we took the optional cable car up Mount First. 60 Euros per adult. The walk to the cable car entrance was further than we were told but perhaps the Swiss walk very, very fast. Also, if you do this tour, be informed that the walk to the scenic lake at the top of Mt First is 50 minutes EACH way. Once we got to the top of the mountain and found this out, we realized we did not have enough time at that point to make this trek. If we were quicker about getting there we might have had time. Instead, a couple of us braved the cliff walk. It was spectacular! On the way down, my son and I took the mountain carts down. It was fun, and I liked that the speed can be easily controlled. Unfortunately, the path made the ride bumpy and his phone fell out of his pocket and broke his screen. In other words, secure the times in your pockets. This tour was exactly what I was looking for.

We were originally booked to take the Grinelwald/Interlaken tour, but once we boarded our bus, and saw what the rest of the group was doing, headed for the highest point in Europe, our guide Kid let us upgrade so that we could tag along! Kid was hands down the BEST part of the trip... aside from getting to see the breath-taking scenery of course. I dont think we would have either learned so much about this amazing country, or laughed as hard as we did if he had not been out guide. He was so helpful, informative, and HILARIOUS. We arent a couple who likes to do touristy trips while traveling, but we are SO glad we booked this one. Hands down the best part of our trip to Zürich. We would highly recommend it for anyone who LOVES touristy group tours, or even to people who are like us and usually steer clear of group tours. ESPECIALLY if you get Kid as your tour guide.

We had one of the best experiences taking the tour. We decided to upgrade it and go all the way to the top of the Alps and my kids enjoyed a lot. Thanks for made our stay in Zurich unforgettable .

Great experience! Very well organised.. It was more than we expected!

This tour was amazing. We were able to purchase an extra train ticket for about 30 Francs each, which took us to one of the higher train stations but not the highest, where there was a ski lodge and restaurant. The views were amazing and we spent about half of our time there and half in Grindelwald. I think that if we didn't take the extra train ticket, we may have gotten a bit bored in Grindelwald as there is not too much to do there. However, the views are amazing and it is a must do if you're going to Switzerland!

This was a great tour!! I actually ended up upgrading to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe tour because of bad weather in Interlaken. Kid was a wonderful guide! Highly recommended.
