Full description
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. After a picture stop at the famous village of Interlaken, go to the charming mountain resort Grindelwald.  Take the cable car up to Mount First to experience the unique summit attraction "First Cliff Walk by Tissot". The trail with a 40-meter one-rope suspension bridge promises an extraordinary adrenaline kick. Grab a bite to eat on the spectacular sun terrace of the restaurant “Berggasthaus First” (food not included). Nearby, you'll find one of Switzerland's most thrilling activities: the First Flyer, a gigantic zip line that gives you the feeling of flying over 800 meters down the hill with a maximum speed of 84 kilometers per hour. Then, continue by mountain cart on an exceptional ride to Bort, from where you complete your adventure by Trottibike scooter. Curve down to Grindelwald through lovely alpine scenery passing by grazing cows and typical Swiss chalets.  Enjoy some leisure time to explore the alpine village Grindelwald before you take the train back to Interlaken, where you meet your tour guide again for the return trip to Zurich.

    The tour was nice, tho I wish the schedule could be better, such as almost an hour stop at Interlaken was totally unnecessary, if the guests would like to buy souvenirs we could do it on the way back before pick up(like optional!) Cause most of the activities on First has long queue, if we could be there earlier start lining up everything will be much more smooth! Besides the guide has great details about the background, information about places we are going(thats great) but the schedule has been explained over and over again throughout the journey and its quite irritating.
