Our trip went smoothly from Zurich to Interlaken to Grindewald. Tour guides were efficient and nice. Translated their info in english and spanish. Our tour bus brought us up to Grindewald. After our on-our-own time at Grindewald, the tour guide gave our train tickets then took the train back to Interlaken where we were met again by our tour guides Su and the bus we used. It was an amazing experience seeing the glacier mountains of grindewald and their village. I couldn't ask for more. I am mesmerized by the scenic mountains, trees and swiss chalets as we traverse Interlaken and Grindewald. For the books!

Going to Interlaken and Grindelwald was nice. We were off season though and lots of stores, hotels and restaurants were closed in Grindelwald. Our guide seemed unaware of this and recommended closed places to eat. We found Bebbis- open 365 days a year and serve both cheese and chocolate fondue. Interlaken has many expensive stores and hotels.
