** Jungfraujoch ** Jungfraujoch was an amazing attraction, I really enjoyed it. It's very catered towards tourists, which made the experience easy. Being on a tour that organised transport to and from Jungfrau also made things much easier. It's almost just as expensive to hire a car so we went with the tour. ** Tour ** It's not so much a tour as a shepherding people to and from the attraction. For someone who isn't familiar with the area, it helped to have transport taken care of. But if you're expecting the tour guide to go into history of places and such, don't expect much. ** Tour guide ** Kid was our tour guide for the day. Kid is a very direct tour guide, and will not hesitate to yell at people if they don't immediately do what they say. He will often ask you to do things (eg. to give him your phone) with no explanation, just repeating the command over and over again. If you don't comply fast enough, he will just yell at you. I think he is well intentioned, even though his approach makes me uncomfortable at times. "You will not remember me tomorrow, you'll only have your photos" he said, which I think describes his approach. The only thing I will say is that Kid sometimes racially profiles people. So if that is something that you don't want to experience, consider booking with another company. ** Overall ** I think Jungfraujoch was great, just be aware if you get Kid as your tour guide - the best you can do is to try not to take anything too personally.

One of the most memorable days of my life. Kid is the best tour guide that showed us all the good spots, kept the group going at a good pace, and made the day so much fun. Highly recommend if you want to see all of the iconic things Switzerland has to offer.

Our journey to Interlaken and Jungfraujoch was a mesmerizing blend of natural beauty and expert guidance. Our knowledgeable tour guide (Kid) wove together geology, folklore, and mountaineering wisdom with eloquence and funny way. His professionalism made every moment a marvel, showcasing breathtaking landscapes. Jungfraujoch's glaciers and Interlaken's charm left an indelible mark. Our heartfelt gratitude to our guide for this unforgettable Swiss adventure.
