Special thanks to YAO PING. She was excellent in her knowledge of the area, caring and highly considerate to the travellers. Weather waa clear that day and the scenery could not have been more breathtaking. Was a little unwell in the middle of the trip and YAO PING stayed with me throughout, ensuring that i was well looked after. Could not ask for a better well attentioned. guide. Thank you so much !

Annette was awesome! This tour was way better than I expected. It was a long day, but I didn't feel rushed once. The views were beautiful, the guide explained everything very well. I only wish the bus had wifi, being on it for so long, and being able to use the bathroom on the bus (it's a long ride back).

My family loved Jungfrau! We traveled with my 89 yr old mum and 15 yr old nephew. Our guide was terrific! He attended to my mum and kept the tour going even though she was a little slower and had some mobility issues. I've forgotten his name or else I would mention his name out of appreciation. He was thoughtful, kind and we enjoyed his commentary. 2.5 hrs at Jungfrau was plenty of time - my family even went ziplining at 11,000 ft! Loved the double decker bus ride through the beautiful countryside of Switzerland. We were debating between Jungfrau and Titlus and are thrilled to have chosen Jungfrau. However next trip, we'll do Titlus and Luzern as a daytrip. Please thank our guide for us once more.
