Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

Choose from a morning or afternoon tour and meet your private guide at your hotel in Interlaken or at the Interlaken Ost train station. Then, make your way into central Interlaken to begin your tour. With your private guide to lead the way, choose the route to hit the highlights you most want to see.

Perhaps stroll along the banks of the Aare River to Lake Thun, and soak up the atmosphere in traditional markets at Unterseen. Explore the Höhenmatte—the historic heart of Interlaken—and admire some of the stylish casinos and hotels for which Interlaken is famous.

Stop for coffee (own expense) and watch paragliders landing from the soaring peaks above, then continue by local bus around the inner-city circle. Along the way, gain insight into life in Switzerland away from the tourist trail.

Take the cable car to a dizzying 4,337 feet (1,322 meters) above sea level to the local mountain peak, and admire sweeping views over the lakes surrounding Interlaken. Capture the peaks and valleys on camera, then return to your starting point in Interlaken to conclude your tour.

Breathtaking views of Lakes Brienz and Thun from Harder Mountain

Beautiful way to get to know Interlaken on our first day. Highly recommend. My only suggestion to the operator would be to end the tour at the top of Harder Mountain and give folks the choice whether to come down with the guide, or be left at the top to spend as much time as they would like. Some may choose to stay and sightsee, eat at the restaurant, or even hike back down.

Unfortunately it rained on and off but Michael skillfully guided us through Interlaken adding a lot of local color as well as a lot of background about Switzerland and Interlaken's role in it's history.

Mike was an amazing guide. Very friendly, knowledgeable, funny and great with my kids. I wish I could have hired his services for more tours but time did not allow. I have found a new friend in him in Switzerland and highly recommend Mike for any of your Swiss tours!
