This was a fantastic adventure. Our tour guide Annette was so knowledgable and helpful, giving us lots of interesting information and explained each part of the day brilliantly. Sweets before we arrived at Jungfrauhoch were really helpful as we did feel slightly lightheaded due to the altitude. It was a shame that the snow fun areas were shut due to poor visibility and stormy weather. However we still enjoyed stunning views and it was an excellent day trip!

O Jungfraujoch em si é um lugar incrível, vale a visita apesar de muito cheio. A experiência toda é um pouco cara, mas vale a pena. A grande vantagem da excursão é não precisar se preocupar com o transporte, uma vez que de Zurique para lá são algumas trocas. Até devido à distância, acaba sobrando pouco tempo para aproveitar o Jungfraujoch; nosso grupo tinha pessoas que iam ficar em Interlaken, o que acrescentou mais pausas ao trajeto e reduziu ainda mais nosso tempo. Nossa guia passou boa parte do trajeto de ida contando alguns fatos sobre o caminho, apontando os lugares que estávamos passando, o que foi interessante.
