Itinerary

Day 1: Zurich — Interlaken or Grindelwald
After pickup from central Zurich from a central location, sit back and savor the excitement as you travel through the splendid countryside to one of Switzerland's most attractive Alpine regions, the Bernese Oberland. Along the way, enjoy live commentary about the region from your professional guide.
Arrive in Interlaken or Grindelwald (depending on option selected) and spend the rest of the day as you please. Your guide will equip you with detailed written information about the sights, attractions and activities available in the town of your choice.
Interlaken: Uniquely located between two lakes, this popular resort town offers great shopping, attractions and outdoor activities. You can cruise on one of the lakes, take the cable car to Harder Kulm mountain or visit the JungfrauPark theme park.
Grindelwald: Nestled in an impressive Alpine landscape, Grindelwald is a paradise for nature lovers. Go hiking to enjoy stunning views of the famous triple peaks Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, take the cable car to the sunny terrace of Mt First or rent a trottibike for a fun ride through town.
For dinner, each town offers a range of restaurants, from authentic local ski lodges to more trendy, modern establishments.

When you arrive at Jungfraujoch, you’re officially at the highest train station in Europe! The Top of Europe immerses you in a high-Alpine wonderland of snow-capped peaks.

The tour could've been way better. The guide just dropped us off at Grindelwald without any information and just told us to meet them at another train station in the morning. Didn't know where our hotel is, or what we can do in Grindelwald.. so felt a little stupid spending more money on this tour.
Grindelwald is a quaint town.. but the downfall is there are millions of flies everywhere. Its in your food and on you pretty much the whole time. Pretty disgusting.

Jungfraujoch was beautiful but when we got to the top camp, there was no place to sit and everywhere was on the floor like refugees. The food was super expensive and did not taste good.

Overall I will never go back again.

Highly dependent on weather and period. I went in November which is a down period in Grindelwald thus no activities to do for a whole day. Jungfraujoch visit was a pity too with really bad weather and zero visibility. The mountainous sight in the area was really great and the saving grace for the trip

We chose to stay in Interlaken and it’s a beautiful place for a one night relaxing stay. Tour to Jungfrau was amazing, it’s our highlight in Switzerland!

Great highlight of our trip away. The Jungfrau was magnificent. Long trip from Zurich for us but worth it. I am so glad we stayed overnight in Grindelwald. It was so beautiful with lots to do. This made the trip. I think the Grindelwald option was better than Interlaken, definitely more scenic. Plus we saw interlaken on the lunch break. Definitely worth it. Plan to go back to Grindelwald in the future.

Terrific trip! We opted for staying overnight at Grindelwald and truly enjoyed the town and the close proximity to hiking trails. Our stop at Interlaken was also enjoyable but dedicating more time enjoying the beautiful scenery outside of Grindelwald was the right choice for us.

I would rate the actual trip up to the Jungfrau with our excellent tour guide as a 5 star experience. The cog-wheel train was wonderful and the view from the top quite breathtaking. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly.
If I had to do it over, I would not bother staying at the hotel. While quaint, it did not provide shampoo or conditioner in the bathroom which was a problem for me at the end of a 2 week vacation. The included breakfast was a bowl of cold granola and a coffee.

Grindelwald was amazing, the small house up in the hills, the Jungfraujoch view on that day is amazing, our tour guide very friendly and manage to watch all of us, coz we are very big group, amazingly everyone very ontime. the night we spend on Grindelwald is worth it.
