Beautiful journey to the top of Europe!
, Jun 2022
The bus ride up was very comfortable & our guide, David pointed out interesting places along the way. Bus-25 minutes Then the gondola which sat Appl 24 people had beautiful vistas. Once we arrived even though foggy, it was a sight to behold!
Great but certain things closed
, Jun 2022
It was a great experience but upon arriving we learned several of the activities were closed due to an impending storm, so when booking be cautious of the weather
Laughing it up with locals
, Jun 2022
So beautiful of area just stared out the nice coach windows didn’t have to think about anything. The Eiger express gondola was funny with a group of Swiss elderly women having a great laugh and fun in there native tongue. You couldn’t not laugh along with them.
Just Do It
, Jun 2022
Very exciting trip up Glacier 3000 With suspension bridge, ski lifts, cable cars, and sledding Great views if sunny Montreux and the castle are stunning Guide very accommodating A must-do!
Awesome & Fun Jungfraujoch
, May 2022
The epxerience going up to Jungraujoch is surreal and amazing itself. There are a lot of activities on top but make sure to complete them early as they close by 3;30pm. The plateu is a great place for some amazing pictures and the view of the glacier. It will be cold and windy , so please carry a jacket.
Wonderful trip to the top of Switzerland
, May 2022
Fabulous trip. Amazing views of the Swiss mountain landscape. All well organised and worth the cost.
, May 2022
Fantastic! Even though it was not a clear day we had an amazing time. The Ice Palace was really a neat experience going inside a million year old glacier.
Jungraujoch in mediocre weather conditions
, Apr 2022
The ice palace and the sphinx were truly incredible. We went on a cloudy/rainy day and knew that views could be harmed as a result. Even though when we first got there it was nearly impossible to see out, we were patient and walked through the rest of the tour. We loved the ice palace. Later we went back to the Sphinx and it cleared up. So just be patient. If it’s supposed to be really bad weather, storms, strong rain, I’d recommend canceling in advance. If there’s a chance for good weather, it’ll still be worthwhile.
My wife and I truly...
, Mar 2022
My wife and I truly enjoyed our trip to Jubgfraujoch! Eduardo, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and personable, and conducted the tour in both English and Spanish. His assistant Sue was extremely helpful. The tour involves a short bus ride to Grindelwald, then a breathtaking cable car ride with incredible views of the Alps, then a ride in a funicular up a tunnel in the mountain to Jungfraujoch. Upon arriving at Jungfraujoch, we had a delicious meal in the restaurant, then took the self guided tour to the observation deck, though the ice caverns, and out onto the snowy mountain. The pictures we took of the Alps from Jungfraujoch are some of our favorite from our Switzerland trip. I highly recommend this tour!
Unforgetable trip
, Jan 2022
The journey started with a bus ride to the base station, and followed by a cable ride. Then somewhere when we thought we were already at the mountain top, there's another tram ride up. The experience is just unforgetable and the view is magnificient.
wonderful day a must see
, Dec 2021
This was a great experience for everyone a must see while in Switzerland while in this beautiful country. ❤️❤️
Jungfrau Tour
, Aug 2021
Was a very good tour but would have liked more then 2 hours at Jungfrau. I felt rushed to see everything and to have lunch. The ice palace was wonderful so don’t miss it. Weather was perfect!

Dear Lynn, Thank you very much for your joining our tour to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe from Interlaken! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit of Europe's highest train station with perfect weather conditions. We totally understand that you would have liked to spend more time on the summit. Depending on train connections, the stay is about 2-2.5 hours. While it is sufficient for the main sights and to have lunch, there is so much to discover that it is impossible to see it all in one visit. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Interlaken and hope to welcome you again during your next trip to Switzerland! Best regards, Amanda from Best of Switzerland Tours
Jungfrau in the Heavy Clouds
, Aug 2021
The mountain was socked in by heavy clouds during our entire visit. The guide tried very hard to make the best of a “bad luck” situation. The highlight of the trip was the Ice Palace and the Rosti I had for lunch.

Dear Donald_M Thank you very much for joining our excursion to the Bernese Oberland, visiting Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. We are sorry that the weather impacted your experience and that you could not enjoy the impressive views of the surrounding region. All our excursions take place as planned regardless of the weather as the destinations visited offer a memorable adventure in all weathers. Our flexible cancellation policy allows to make changes to bookings up to 24 hours prior to the tour start, so weather conditions can be considered but we also understand that it often may be difficult to alter the plans if you are only in a destination for a short time. We are happy to read that you enjoyed visiting the Ice Palace, tunnels carved in ice through the glacier, and a typically Swiss meal. We hope that you had a safe onward journey and that you will have the opportunity to visit Switzerland again, maybe joining one of our tours with hopefully better weather conditions then. Kind regards Anja from Best of Switzerland Tours

Little costly. Viator should atleast include a bottle of Water or Juice at this cost!

Little costly. Viator should atleast include a bottle of Water or Juice at this cost! Apart from the above point tour was perfectly managed. Guide was fantastic and knowledgeable. Guide made the tour easy and enjoyable. About the destination??? It's a must visit!!!
Gorgeous vistas!
, Oct 2019
Rode a tour bus from Interlaken to the first of two trains up to the Jungfrau viewing platform. The ride up provided beautiful views in themselves. Gratefully, it was a sunny day and beautiful views were available of both the Jungfrau and Munch peaks. They were also interesting exhibits inside the glacier at the platform. A day well spent!
Top of Europe!!
, Sep 2019
My 25 year old daughter and I took this tour earlier this month while staying in Interlaken, and it is well worth it! I had previously checked in to doing this on our own, but found it was much easier - and less expensive - to do it as a tour. Cold at the very top, but it's about 13,000 ft altitude, with snow and glacier. Magnificent views! The ice palace was our favorite, so beautiful and impressive. Our guide made it easy to make it to all the spots and see everything. The only downside was that we only had an hour for lunch and shopping; we could've used and extra half hour or so, but other than that we had a fabulous time. Highly recommend!!
