Meet your tour guide in front of the McDonalds, opposite the Tourist Information office. Our coach is coming from Zurich and will reach Lucerne between 9.20am and 9.30am.

9:30 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
Start your day trip near the main train station in central Lucerne, where you’ll meet your guide aboard the coach for the drive to Lauterbrunnen. The scenic journey winds below the impressive mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland en route to your destination in the UNESCO-listed wilderness of Switzerland’s Bernese Alps.

On arrival at Lauterbrunnen, your guide accompanies you on a 100-minute cogwheel train ride to Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest-altitude railway station sitting 11,333 feet above sea level. Along the way, travel through the breathtaking mountain pass of Kleine Scheidegg, situated beneath the famous Eiger North Face. 

Disembark at the Top of Europe and head to the Alpine Sensation — a round-tour subway opened to mark the centenary of the Jungfrau Railway. This latest attraction links the Ice Palace and Sphinx Observatory, where you can soak up panoramic views over Aletsch Glacier, Europe's longest glacier. On a clear day, look as far as the snow-capped peaks of France and Italy. 

If you wish, purchase a snack or a warm drink at the on-site restaurant (own expense) before the cogwheel train ride to ‘Eigergletscher’, where you will change to the V-Cableway Eiger Express. After approx. 15 minutes you will reach Grindelwald Terminal, where your coach awaits. Then hop aboard your coach for the return drive to central Lucerne where your tour concludes in the evening.

This is the most amazing trip! Half way up we were in the clouds and the clouds opened up and saw the top of the mountain. We were able to look out the windows of the Eiger Mountain tunnel to spectacular views!! The highlight was then reaching the top and seeing the ice castle and the Sphinx

A must do when in Switzerland! Our tour guide Kit made the trip. A crazy and amazing personality. From the moment I saw his outfit we were in for a day. He is the first guide I ever had who helped take great pictures along the way. He knew exactly the great spots. It was so wonderful to not have to figure it all out and let him run the show.

Amazing views from the final destination, but also beautiful scenery along the way. Guide was more of a "cat herder" rather than being informative, but was friendly and more than willing to take pictures for all participants along the way.

We had a terrific time on this excursion. Kid was helpful and fun. He did a great job of getting us from point to point on time and didn't mind taking pics for us as well! We didn't have great weather at the Plateau, but the Ventura up and down had spectacular views!

It’s difficult to express in words how mind blowing this tour experience actually was, it was nothing short of spectacular! ‘Kit’ our talented guide for the day was excellent, we particularly enjoyed his quick wit and big smile. We look forward to sharing tales of this tour with family and friends for years to come. This tour is a ‘must do’.

The tour was everything it was described to be - and just made even better thanks to our tour guide, Kid. The scenery was breathtaking the whole way there and most definitely at the top. Kid made sure we got all the best picture angles and always managed to get us to the front of the lines so we had time ahead of crowds. Would definitely do it again - would love to see it on a clear day in winter.

Wonderful experience! Only suggestion regards pick up & drop off. Location for pick up was not accurate. If we had’not gone around the corner, we would have missed the bus. Drop off at end of tour was different than pick up location. No guidance given at drop off so we were at a loss for how to get back to where we started from in the morning. Remember we are tourists & don’t know the area. At least point passengers in the right direction at the end of the bus ride so we can get back to where we started from. Kid was excellent. Great guide! Made the trip memorable. Went above & beyond….especially in getting my forgotten rain coat back to me. Thank You!!!

The bus met us on time and our guide Raymond was great. He provided info on all aspects of the tour and knew about the road, the gondola and train. The tour at the top was a lot of fun and he did great photos for us on our phones. Definitely a great day!!
