Full description

Depart Lucerne and journey to the magnificent mountains of the Bernese Oberland by coach. Marvel at the splendid countryside as you drive to the beautiful resort town of Interlaken in the Jungfrau region. 

After an orientation stop in Interlaken, continue to the village of Grindelwald, more than 1,000 meters above sea level. Get stunning views of the surroundings, including the peaks of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau mountains. 

Use your leisure time to ride the funicular to the terrace of Grindelwald First (optional, not included). Go for a walk or rent a Trotti bike (a scooter-like bike without a seat) and experience the dramatic scenery from a different perspective.

Then, take a scenic - unescorted - train ride back to Interlaken, where you can spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure. Browse the shops or go to the Harder Kulm viewpoint by cable car for stunning views of the surrounding area (optional, not included). 

Breathe in the fresh mountain air before meeting your guide again for the return journey to Lucerne and the end of the tour.

I thought this trip was well worth the money. The coach bus ride to Interlaken was nice and our tour guide gave a lot of information about the area as we rode. We spent a little time in Grindelwald but decided to take the train to Lauterbrunnen to see the waterfalls. We walked around Interlaken, very cute town with shops and restaurants. It clearly states this is a partially guided tour so I’m not sure why people are surprised by this. The tour guide gives ideas of things to do and directed us after getting off the bus.

The coach provided the transport from Lucerne/Grinderwald/Interlaken/Lucerne and its actually a self guided tour which we preferred to spent time on our own for the resonable price we paid. Lars the tour leader was informative and explained well what to do for those just doing the Interlaken and Grinderwald trip. It was a combined tour for most passengers going to Jungfraujork. Train tickets were provided for us to return back to Interlaken after spending time in Grinderwald on our own which we took the opportunity to have lunch there enjoying the beautiful view of the Jungfrau mountains. Upon arrival at Interlaken, we took the funicular up to Harder Kulm to see the scenic view of Interlaken and the snowy mountains.

It was an amazing trip. Our guide Lars was super informative and helpful. The transportation was well organized. I spent short time in Grindelwald and went to Lauterbrunnen instead of directly to Interlaken. Then i returned to Interlaken. I was late for the meeting time but the crew was kind enough to wait for me. Overall i had an amazing day. I would definitely recommend this.
