Bernese Oberland Alps

This is the most phenomenal hiking trip so far we’ve had . The views were heart stopping from interlaken Grindelwald then the cogwheel train ride up to Klein Scheidegg . The green meadows , the cow bells and the chalets as we ascend . The four hour independent tour at Klein Scheidegg was spent for 45 mins lunch at a restaurant with an amazing views of the Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau had a local dish food is great and the rest of our time was spent hiking . Eiger walk trail is closed but we were able to hike in a different trail which is moderately challenging until we stumbled at this beautiful glacial lake up top and saw the glaciers at the peaks . Then we made our descend to Lautenbrunnen via cogwheel train and the views again are breathtaking . The weather is perfect , not even a cloud in the sky . Rebecca Fisher is exceptional !!!! Very communicative , we attended to everyone who is on the group and provided them all the information that we need for the trip . I was adamant at first because of the negative reviews but again , Rebeca Fisher made this trip easy and memorable for all of us .im looking forward to go back . One day is not enough :)

The views were beautiful and the experience at Kleine Scheidegg was fun....however the tour was very disorganized. There were 3 groups all doing different tours, and it was not explained very well to us where we needed to go and where to meet up at the end. We would have enjoyed a bit more time in Interlaken. We only got about 30 minutes. Finishing the tour was not at all pleasant. We were put into a separate car on the train that only held 4 people. We felt like we were prisoners. Away from the rest of the group which meant we missed out on the commentary from our tour guide. We were not very impressed with our guide Trudi. Her knowledge of the area was good but she was not a good leader. We do not feel that the cost of this tour was worth what we got out of it. We did an independant tour at Zermatt and the Matterhorn which we enjoyed far more than this, and was comparable in price.

The only good: our guide Peter was very informative. But this is just a terrible tour. They cram three different tours on one bus. Their man focus is the Jungfrau group so the guide stays with them and you get stuck in Klein sheidigg for FOUR hours. It was raining and foggy. Nothing to see or do

There was too much time at Klein Scheidegg. Would prefer to have an hour to explore in Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen. Other than that the trip was amazing.

The description for this tour needs to change. Not only that, but you can purchase the tour for much cheaper while in Switzerland. There were four hours at Kleine Scheidegg and no maps for hiking tours. Additionally, most everything was closed. The guide didn't even offer adding the tour to the top which I would have added just to have something to do. Not sure what the tour in Interlaken was supposed to consist of, but our guide just told us to go down the street and buy sandwiches. I really regret spending my money on this.

We took the Oberland Alps Day Trip Kleine Scheidegg from Lucerne. The coach was very nice, the guide was knowledgeable and the train rides had spectacular views. We enjoyed the time at Kleine Scheidegg and walked to the Lake and had numerous photo ops in the area. We brought our own sandwiches and enjoyed a beer at the outdoor restaurant. It was a full day trip and good value. We were on a river cruise and they offered a similar trip for nearly double the price.

Quite simply there was nothing to do at Kleines Scheidegg during April. We thought we could go hiking as recommended by the tour itinerary but it was snowing with poor visibility. Viatour needs to change its recommendations and give better advice on what you can do depending on the time of yr.

Wow! What an amazing trip. It was one of our most favorite tours, and we did around 18 across Europe. Loved the time to just explore, have lunch and take in the atmosphere. Highly recommended.
