Enjoyable day trip

My mom and I took this trip, and it was very nice! We had a pickup at our hotel which was right on time. The tour shuttle was very nice and comfortable with huge windows and even the roof was windows so you could see everything. Our guide, Zed, was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. There were only 4 people on this tour, so let us determine how long to stay and even took us to see a castle that wasn't on the tour. The glacier 3000 view was amazing! And Montreaux is beautiful. The only drawback was it was quite expensive, and I would have liked more time in Montreaux.

Viator sorry to inform you that the entire tour had to be cancelled because of bad weather ! Would not recommend anyone to book this tour in winters as the chances of the cable car and glacier viewing is almost nil !
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Good Afternoon, Thank you for your message. We are sorry for your bad experience, but unfortunately the weather conditions can not be controled. A mountain has always a chance to be a snowy day, but it's another charm as well. As for the wind, as mentionned we can't control it and we cannot know in advance. PLease note the wind can come as summer as in winter, it does not depend on the period. Our drivers always try to show you other things when the cable car is closed. Hope see you same day, in summer time perhaps. Best Regards Keytours Team

Couldn't make the trip to glacier 3000 due to high winds, so the cable car was closed. Very disappointed! The tour guide was great and made alternatives to the trip. However the rest of the trip to Montreux and Gruyères were rushed and not much to see. good for keytours for refunding most od trip.

Good morning, Thank you for your review. Sorry for the late reply. It's a bit of a risk when you take a trip to the mountain, we are subjected to weather and we cannnot know before the morning of the tour what is going to happen. We always try to find alternatives so you don't lose your day. We hope you enjoyed switzerland anyway. We wish you a nice day
