The guide was very knowledgable and gregarious. However, the guide should be mindful and considerate of all guests' time. When we scheduled the day trip we were told on several ocasions that the bus would return to Zurich by 8 PM Unfortunately, additional guest pickup in Lucern were late and returning to Lucerne took more time than needed to allow restroom stop and give directions for trains to departing guest. You have to be aware of other guest time constraints who are required COVID testing before returning to the USA. The testing center is located in the main bus parking lot and closes by 9 PM. I explained my concerns to Predo, the guide, and his assistant, Monica. My wife was waiting for me and was concerned that she had missed me or perhaps was in the wrong place. Please by thoughtful and considerate to all of the guest because without patrons you would not have a tour business.

This is a fantastic day trip from Zurich passing through Lucerne, a good look around Interlaken and a fabulous trip up Jungfraujoch. 0800 start from Zurich coach station..very well organised start and the 2 hour drive to Interlaken with very good commentary on the way about the region and Swiss culture. Around 1 hour quick view around Interlaken with some stunning views. Then around 30 minutes to Jungfraujoch then cable car and train to top of the mountain. Luckily it was a beautiful clear day so views were spectacular..remember it can be -6c even in May at the top. The guide was excellent and overall this is a fantastic day trip from Zurich.

Great way to explore the hidden wonders of Switzerland for a day. Trip lasts 12 hours and there are plenty of opportunities to stop, eat, and use restrooms, too.

The trip to Jungfraujoch was worth every penny! The views from the mountain are spectacular and like nothing, you have ever seen before. There are multiple things to do on the mountain including viewing an ice palace, zip-lining (not included in the ticket but worth trying), and more!
