For those of you reading this, know that I am an introvert who is also scared of new experiences and meeting people. This was my first solo trip ever and I am so proud of myself for doing it. I met really wonderful, kind and helpful people of this trip. Our tour guide Franz Husmann, Pink and driver Josie were amazing. Swiss people are very punctual and organised, no kidding! I had no trouble in the entire trip. Everything was smooth and very well planned. Thank you Team. Hope to plan many more trips with you.

it's an excellent activity. A lot depends on the weather. When we went it was cloudy. However all activities were open and we enjoyed all of them. Good activity and very well managed by the tour operator. Instructions from Get your guide were precise and very helpful. Our guide Annette took care of every small detail. Wonderful experience.
