This would have been an even better day if the weather had not closed in on the top of the mountain. Fernando (our guide) did a great job of informing us of the various sights and even alerted us to a break in the weather that allowed us to get some photos of the saddle. The itinerary was well planned and enabled us to experience a range of experiences.

The tour guide, good in humor and also in languages. The driver is excellent. Of course few concerns, no charging and WiFi in the bus, it’s old bus

I think the most memorable thing that we did in Jungfraujoch was the cable car ride going to the top of the mountain. View was great! And the ice tunnel. Amazing!

Views were pretty great. But it was so crowded that I really didn't have that great of a time. I've never been so squished in a space ever. People pressed up against me on all sides, literally shoving and pushing you. If it wasn't for the beautiful scenery from the mountain I would almost say it wasn't worth. This was a LONG day, i would say too long. Please don't bring young kids, many kids were screaming and tired and it was really annoying.

The whole trip was amazing, from the gondola to the train to the experience on top of the mountain. Well worth the price and time spent
