    I took the tour starting in Interlaken, but it actually started in Zurich, which would make it a very very long day. I think there was a stop in Interlaken for the Zurich people, and several of them didn't get back to the bus in time, so that delayed our departure by at least 20 minutes. The tour itself in JungFrau, including the new fast cable ride up to the Eiger was excellent. The cogwheel train up to the summit is uneventful, as it is mostly inside the mountain. The facilities at the "Top of Europe" are superb. Must better than at the top of Mont Blac, or the Matterhorn.

    For this trip compared to our Mt Titlis one, our guide Catherine was very clear and good. She not only spoke well in English and Spanish, she introduced many parts of our journey and background knowledge of Switzerland to us. I was a very educational coach journey on our way to Interlaken. Only set back was we had to rush over our lunch just because the other group that was going up Jungfraujoch had to catch a train ride while we continue our coach journey towards Grindelwald

Climb up to 15,000 feet in a helicopter, take a big breath, and exit the perfectly sound chopper to free fall over the magnificent mountains.

Loved the dedication and professionalism of the entire crew.. i'll come back and do this with my wife again soon. Don't miss this, once in a lifetime opportunity ! SKY IS THE LIMIT !

  • Day Trip from Zurich: Grindelwald First Mountain Adventure

    10. Day Trip from Zurich: Grindelwald First Mountain Adventure

    Enjoy a morning drive from Zurich to the Bernese Oberland, passing by five different mountain lakes and listening to interesting explanations of your multilingual guide.

    This tour was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable. People who do this tour must realize that there is a significant amount of self-guided time. There certainly could have been more specific instruction about how to actually get to the cable car to get up to Mt. First. It wasn’t terribly difficult to figure out, but that was a small bit that was lacking. In general, though, the tour and the whole experience were absolutely fantastic!!!
