What people are saying about Interlaken

It was just our luck that it was raining during the trip, hence, we did not get to see as much as we wanted at Bern (my fault as I forgot my raincoat). However, the visit to Kambly and Emmentaler and the countryside scenery despite the rain made up for that. And Peter was such an amazing guide that he made sure that we get the most out of the tour despite the weather. He was very warm and helpful with all the guests and accommodated special requests as much as he could. He assisted my friends and I in our request to be dropped off at the nearest train station on the way to Zurich and he even found us the train timings to book for a shorter journey to Interlaken. Would recommend this tour especially if it was Peter who will be the guide.

This is an unforgettable trip, one of the most beautiful places you can visit when looking for tranquility and peace. Even when one of the lakes was not accessible, I enjoyed it very much, it is an incredible place with views that take your breath away. The boat makes several stops before reaching its final destination to enrich the views of the different enchanted villages around Lake Thun. The waiter, a very well prepared man with a great sense of kindness, was a very good guide during the journey. Thank you very much.

Tour that makes it easy to stop in the towns by the lake, to visit and to take the boat back a little later. The flight attendants are welcoming regardless of the company. The tour easily allows us making stops in the lake cities so you can visit and take another boat 1 or 2 hours later. Staff is welcoming whatever the company.

It was a smooth ride. However the details need to clearer that one needs to board twice in a day for covering both lakes and respective timings. I had to call the get ur guide team to seek clarity.

Very well organized. Much fun and all guides were super nice.
