It was definitely one of the highlights of our Switzerland trip. Andres, our guide, was very helpful from the start to the end. Being beginners, we were instructed clearly on what to do. We were warm enough with the dry suits despite the winter weather. The hot tea and biscuits offered while on a castle stop to be able to gaze at the breathtaking scenery around us was a very big bonus. It was truly an unforgettable experience with the lake and the snow capped mountains. The photos taken by Andres were utterly amazing as well. Can’t believe it was part of the package. It made us want to go back again in the summer. Definitely a must try when in Interlaken.

We had our first winter kayaking during our honeymoon trip in Interlaken! Our guide is Andres, the most patient guide ever, I was lack of experience and did not know how to keep my balance, the wind constantly shifted my boat direction, Andres professionally guiding my step by step and i had finally manage it successfully. During the kayaking session, the views were magnificent and breathtaking, have not seen any views nicer than this in Asia for sure. Highly recommended and it’s such a wonderful day

Andres was our guide and he was amazing. Made us feel so safe and comfortable, and wasn't treating it like it was his job- he was genuinely happy to be on the water with us and showing us the views from the lake. He also made sure we got all the pictures we wanted!!

We had such a wonderful time kayaking in Interlaken with out guide. Would 10/10 recommend if you want a relaxing excursion that shows you the true beauty of the area.

It was an incredible experience. The tour guide was so kind and made the experience more enjoyable. The views of the surrounding mountains were pretty crazy.
