Beautiful day in the Alps at Interlaken and Grindelwald. You’ll have plenty of time to walk both villages and shop if you like. Lots of cafes and restaurants. While in Grindelwald, you will have more time than you need. There are bikes to rent or you can even go hiking if you have your gear with you.

There needs to be better documentation that lets travelers know that unless you’re going to the top of the mountain, you’re just paying for a bus ride. You are in Interlaken about 1 to 1 1/2 hours then you reboard the bus for a ride to Grindlewald where you are dropped off for 3-4 hours on your own…it was a Sunday and NOTHING was open…restaurants/shops , etc. We went back to Zurich on our own via train at our own expense. Kid tried to be helpful but it was after we were already on the way. The tours should not be combined on the bus with attempting to upsell passengers to the top of the mountain tour!

Our tour guide was one of the best ever. Me and my brother in law have mobility issues and our tour guide made sure we were first in line to enter each leg of our tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested

The Guide was from Mexico with a very bad English. He did not explain anything but was only interested in selling you the upgraded tour. He has been asking for tips all the way to the end. Worse trip ever. I would not recommend this trip to anyone.

We were just given instructions where to go because we were apparently included in another group tour that goes up to the top of Jungfrojoch. So we just passed Interlaken, no coming down of the bus, just pointing outside the window to take photos. Then off to the half of the top then gondola to grindelwald only to wait for the other group who went to the Top. No guide at all. Just instructions where to wait for the bus. Basically we just paid for the bus ride. Very disappointed
