Even though we didn't get to the top of Europe because of a blizzard blowing with high winds, it was still an outstanding tour. The guide was excellent and the adjusted by taking us to Grindewald which was very nice. They also gave everyone a $100/per person cash refund for not getting us to the top! That went beyond anything I have experienced on other tours. The bus was very nice with less seats then the average bus giving way more leg room.

The tour was amazing. Pity about the guide who wasn’t that informative. But appeared to be chatting with certain groups. He spent a lot of time photographing and being photographed. Had a bad habit of grabbing cameras and other devices out of people’s hands to photograph them even they didn’t want that. Failed to specify free time so that people were waiting for the next item while he was having himself photographed. It was very annoying.

Tour guide kid was funny, knowledgeable and helpful. What an amazing experience. Pricey tour but worth it. I took 6 tours this trip and 5 was from viator. Anywhere I travel in the world I book thru viator.

The highlight of my vacation! Weather wasn’t great and the day is long (4 hours travelling to and from) but an experience to remember, nevertheless. Our guide Kid made it even better - he was witty, and let us know when to take the best photos. Even taking photos for us, which I appreciated as a solo traveller. Also kept a close eye on us, so I was never afraid of being left behind. Just a note though - you can’t eat or drink on the bus, so make sure you have breakfast before boarding. Overall loved the trip - a definite recommend!

It's a beautiful cog wheel train ride. Interlaken is a beautiful city to go through, top of the mountain is exciting enough. What could be improved is more engaging description from the tour guide.
• Submitted 07 Oct 2019
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and we did not get any views of the mountains from the top. However it was still a great day out. The ice palace was great and the train journey was really nice. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and took lots of photos for everyone in our group. would definitely recommend this tour.

Fantastic day trip. Our guide Kid was fantastic - he tells you exactly the best moment to take photos, takes photos for you and even takes photos with his own professional camera (and airdrops them to you on the way home). The mountain gets cold so make sure you bring a ski jacket, beanie and gloves (some people did not and looked very cold). Lots to see at the top of the mountain but there is enough time to see it all on the tour.

Beautiful place. Its a long journey from Zurich but its worth a trip. Bus, trains and host were excellent. Our host was helpful (sometimes; too much :) ) but no complaints. All scheduled stuff went smooth and of course I didnt feel that I am rushed though additional time on the top will be helpful. Overall thumbs up !!!!

Beautiful view along the travelling road, exciting experience of snow mountain, guide took the wonderful photos for each one.

Everyone kept telling me seeing jungfraujoch was overrated, but I’ll have to say, that is far from the truth. The top of the mountain has spectacular views and it’s an experience I’ll never forget. Kid was our guide and he was AMAZING!!!! Please keep Kid, because he was HUGE part of why this experience was amazing. He funny, extremely organized and knew how to get us through the crowds. He even took a few photos of me with his personal camera. Talk about going the extra mile!!! Thank you Kid!!! You have to do this, even just the train ride up and down the mountain was a beautiful experience in itself. Seeing the alps, rolling hills and cows with bells while riding the train is a lifetime of experiences.

It was a fantastic tour. We never regret to go to this trip. The top of Europe is really worth going.

Overall this tour met and exceeded my expectations. Right from stepping on the bus, you're welcomed and treated with excellent customer service. Our guide was Kid-d, who made the trip! Jungfraujoch can be pretty busy, I went on a Thursday, on a nice day, and it was PACKED! Using a guide really helped maximize the day, and even cut some of the lines to take the various trains up and down the mountains. The one thing to expect is that you don't have hours on end to spend really looking, appreciating, and marveling at the sites, as there is a schedule to do. As most other reviews, it would have been nice to have a longer time spent in Interlaken - but the traffic is unpredictable, and the tourist crowds can be crazy at times. I plan to come visit this place once more and would defintiely use this guide again!

This was an amazing place - no wonder it's so highly reviewed. While others have mentioned the tour itself, I cannot say enough about our guide, Kid. I've taken many tours and he was absolutely the best guide I've ever had. He went above and beyond to make sure the entire group had a once in a lifetime experience. He forewarned us when to have our cameras ready for upcoming photos ops, when to take restroom breaks because it would be 2 hours until the next stop, and which shop was 2 euros cheaper on a bottle of water. The best part though was the photos. He'd take our cameras and make sure everyone had a substantial number of photos without having a bunch of selfies or that we obtained the best shot of the landscape on the opposite side of the train even if he took the picture himself with your camera. Unbelievably he took a number of photos on his iPad and then air dropped the pictures in which you appeared to you while we rode the train back. Kid set an entirely new standard for what a tour guide can do.

This tour was incredible and our tour guide Raymond was exceptional as was our bus driver! Raymond was knowledgeable, fun, and excellent at his job. The scenery was breath taking and we were blessed to have sunshine for the most part of the trip. This tour is well worth the money and time and we are still talking about our wonderful memories!

This Tour has to be on everyone’s list of must do’s!. So much to pack into one day but so worth it. Tour guide kept the group on schedule for multiple train and stops along the way. He made sure we all got some excellent exciting photos along the amazing journey to remember our trip to the top of Europe!

An unforgettable and memorable day! We were so lucky to have perfect weather and our views were absolutely breathtaking from the top. Our guide, Kid, was an absolute card and added fun to the travelling time. A definite must-do day trip for everyone visiting Zurich.
• Submitted 03 Jul 2019
I would recommend this tour hands down. Great views on the way to the mountains. The Ice Palace was so much fun and the summit experience is worth it. But what made the tour much more fun is Kid, our guide. He's amazing and so funny! He knows exactly where the picturesque views are and alerts us ahead of time to get our cameras ready in "3-2-1-Come on!" He even takes pictures of us with our heads outside the train window for great cinematic shots. He's sensitive to the needs of his clients. He noticed that one lady's camera is running out of juice. He looked for a plug to charge it. My son was feeling nauseous on the way down from Jungfraujoch. He took care of him and kept asking how he's feeling and if he wants to sit down. He's one of the reasons our family will always cherish our Top of the Europe experience.

Our tour guide, Kid D. was very knowledgeable about the places we visited. He knew exactly when we should take our pics and would prep us beforehand. He also took our cameras to get good shots. I really enjoyed the trip.
