Not Enough and Too Much Time
sallymO555ZI
, Sep 2019
We loved wand tarot decorations Interlaken, but didn’t have enough time to get to either lake since we were dropped off in the middle. We only had 90 minutes. We were the only ones on this tour. The driver took us to Grindelwald for 4:45 hours! Since we aren't Hikers, we ate lunch and sat around for hours. While the scenery was pretty, it was a boring time. Wish we’d just taken a train to Interlaken.

Self-guided tours of two beautiful Swiss cities

Enjoyed our time in Grindelwald and Interlaken. Guide provided minimal details of what to do while there - need to research before you go. We walked the city of Interlaken which was beautiful. In Grindelwald we took the Gondola up and saw some magnificent views -definately worth the money.

The places covered as part of this trip was really good. We enjoyed the time during this trip,the scenery around Grindenwald and interlaken was excellent. I would recommend same trip for others who want to enjoy a nice day trip from Zurich. The tour guide was not good one he didn't explain us how do we can make best use of our time in Interlaken and Grindelwald. We had to find out and plan everything on our own. The tour guide just dropped us in the stop and vanished. At least he could have mention us where to go and what can be done in the allocated time. As I travel on regular basis I could make some quick plan.

Unless you're heading to Jungfraujoch on this tour, this is primarily a shopping/dining drop off. For those of us who did not join the tour to go up to the top of the mountains, we had 2 hours in Interlaken and 4 hours in Grindelwald. The areas were primarily shopping and dining so we felt that Grindelwald could have been 2 hours shorter.

I feel so disappointed of this tour! We just had half an hour in Interlaken and took a few hours in a village, where was not mentioned beforehand and had nothing to do and see. Finally, we went to Grindelwald for a while in the purpose of picking up those people who went up to the Junfrau.

Was in Interlaken and Grindelwald last week and it is an amazing place indeed. Was snowing most of the time and it makes the place look magical. The stop in Interlaken is too small and that is something I did not like about it as it would have been nice to spend a couple of hours in Interlaken, that I was disappointed about, apart from that the company was great and enjoyed the tour. There are only 2 companies that operate these tours and this one grey line are the best for sure. I booked also a tour with the other company called best of switzerland but the tour was a total disorganisation, would not recommend that at all.

Interlaken was absolutely beautiful, full of shops and eatery overlooking the mountains. Once we got to Grindelwald, it felt like heaven on earth! The alps were simply breathtaking! Bus tour ride was a fair distance but totally worth it!

Although this was the trip we had pre-purchased, our tour guide, Kid great reviews in other postings and we weren't disappointed told us that because of the time of year it was, not everything was open in Grindelwald and he suggested we do the Jungfrau mountains instead. Since the rest of the bus travelers were doing that one, we agreed. It was the best decision we made. We had had rain most of our trip in Germany and it appeared to be stopping in Switzerland - but we took the train over 11,000 feet up over the clouds and the sky was a perfect blue and the mountains were the Swiss Alps we had been looking for. Kid was fantastic as he guided us through the various levels, the ice palace, and key photo opportunities. Our pictures were spectacular. I highly recommend this trip and if you do plan for it, be sure to wear gloves, warm shoes/boots with good traction on ice, and drink a lot of water because the thin air at 11k may affect you. It did me, but not most of the others in the group. It was little hard for me to breathe but there were plenty of places to sit and rest. Regardless, the pictures are priceless and the scenery was spectacular. I hope you get Kid as your guide because he's so great at this.

This tour was self exploration. We were taken by a comfortable coach to both interlaken and Grindelwald. We were able to do our own exploring in these regions.
