Our guide, Luis Fernando Medina Salazar, was exceptional -- very knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic and kind. He was very patient with our children (11 years and 10 years) and willing to flex with our preferences. Grindelwald is beautiful -- the Swiss Alps are majestic, and the First area has tons of adventurous activities and beautiful hikes. We loved every moment.
