Our Guide Kid D. was exceptional. He ensured we stayed together as a group and a family of 8! He took us to numerous "photo hot spots" and ensured we had memorable photos from our trip, both incividually and as a family! Best excursion of the trip! Thanks,

The tour guide, the views, the location everything. If I could I would give it a 6 out of 5! It was that good and should be done!

Our tour guide Mr. Kid was the highlight of the trip. Not only did he ensure we saw all the important points but he also took amazing pictures for the whole group. Besides, he continuously entertained us with his jokes and change of outfits 😂 Best tour I have been on! Highly recommend to do this tour only with this company!

This tour is a must do! The scenery and beauty are so amazing that pictures don’t do it justice. Jungfraujoch is absolutely stunning, if you have a nice clear day. Kid was our guide and he is beyond amazing! He kept things extremely organized while making it the best day! He took multiple photos for every guest and knew all of the best spots to get the best photos! You can tell that his passion is making sure that everyone has a wonderful time and he certainly succeeded!! The bus was clean and comfortable. The tour is really worth the price. I would go again in a heartbeat!
