This was a fantastic adventure. Our tour guide Annette was so knowledgable and helpful, giving us lots of interesting information and explained each part of the day brilliantly. Sweets before we arrived at Jungfrauhoch were really helpful as we did feel slightly lightheaded due to the altitude. It was a shame that the snow fun areas were shut due to poor visibility and stormy weather. However we still enjoyed stunning views and it was an excellent day trip!

I am disappointed i am not allowed to rate it 10 stars on 5 . I absolutely loved this tour and would say that this tour will get you to the best scenery and experience in Switzerland. Strongly recommend for tourists who have 2 - e days in Switzerland and may not be comfortable exploring on their own. Must do trip. I have been to Titlis too. If you have two days, suggest do both. If you only one day - this should be your preference.

Amazing!!!!!! HIGHLY recommend. Beautiful views- worth every second. You can bring your own go pro if you have one or pay for the photos ~$40 (which is also a good price). Spent about 15-20 mins in the air? Don't leave Switzerland until you do this!

Updated this trip to Jungfraujoch and it was the best decision ever I’ve made and the best tour we had so far. The tour guides are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Amazing experience! Very friendly and informative guide. Excellent restaurant and breathtaking view.
