We started at 8am and were dropped at 5.30pm. When we reached the peak, we were given literally 2hrs on the dot and thats including lunch and toilet break. Within that time we have to finish everything including sight seeing. Once we reached to the river, we were only given 1hr to roam around. No toilets in the bus. Very poor experience for the money we paid

We love the experience and enjoyed our trip with a small group in January of 2023. We were picked up from our hotel and dropped off at the bus station, a nice 15 minute walk to our hotel. We had an excellent and pleasant guide/ driver Normund❣

Glacier 3000 was a day to never forget but the Montreux 1 hour visit on the way home was pointless not enough time to do anything very time restricted. But overall a good day.

Amazing day out for the whole family. The glacier is incredible, the peak bridge exciting. Montreux is best saved for summer though
