For those of you reading this, know that I am an introvert who is also scared of new experiences and meeting people. This was my first solo trip ever and I am so proud of myself for doing it. I met really wonderful, kind and helpful people of this trip. Our tour guide Franz Husmann, Pink and driver Josie were amazing. Swiss people are very punctual and organised, no kidding! I had no trouble in the entire trip. Everything was smooth and very well planned. Thank you Team. Hope to plan many more trips with you.

Everything was well planned and well timed. The guide was friendly and enthusiastic to share details about the places we visited, and the Jungfraujoch itself is of course beautiful and very much worth visiting if you're visiting Switzerland. The transportation was comfortable as well. Would definitely recommend the tour.

A fantastic 12 hours. Scenery was fantastic during the whole trip. Our tour guide, Annette, was great. The bus driver was very skilled on the narrow roads.

Our tour manager Konrad and Yanlu are so nice. Almost perfect. We enjoy the tour so much.

Mr Hussman was a great guide. Very enjoyable trip.
