Going to jungfrau. I was disappointed that didn't get to stop at either interlocked or grindenwalk. I thought that was part of the tour

An amazing experience, we were fortunate to have good weather that day. There are a lot of beautiful views if you can bear the cold so I recommend wearing a few layers and definitely wearing gloves with touch screen capability. I also recommend bringing a packed lunch prior to getting there if you don't want to spend money on the cafe/restaurant as it's not cheap. Overall a great experience and would say it's worth it.

This is a must-do tour. Every aspect of the tour was exceptional from pick up, to the sights, to return. The mountain top was breathtaking.
