I rarely buy these tours as they are normally overpriced. But if you want to go to the top of Europe, you must book this one. It was. a 4-minute walk to pick up from Zurich HB. The bus was a double-decker. We sat on the bottom which had tables. It was comfortable with a great view. You can drink water but no eating on the bus. There are no restrooms on the bus. You can use the restroom in Interlaken. It cost 1 CHF to use the public restroom. We had 45 min. there then on to Jungfraujoch. Bring plenty of snacks and water as the food prices are pricey. If you forget you will stop in Interlaken and can buy food in the grocery store for a good price. Water is sold on the bus for 2 CHF but at the store, it's .95CHF. The tour guide was nice and explained a lot of history. Had great weather when we arrived. The Cable car ride was exciting and the view was nice. The train ride was through a tunnel. The top of Europe was beautiful and a memorable experience.

From start to finish, every aspect of the tour was of the highest quality. Our tour guide was very informative and could not have been more helpful. Would highly recommend.

A trip worth going for. Such a beautiful and awesome place. The guides was professional!

Best to do without worrying the logistics of going up to the mountain!

Amazing overall! Great people and surreal experience!
