What to expect
  • Board a coach in central Zurich and journey south through Switzerland's scenic Bernese Oberland to Lauterbrunnen. On arrival, you'll ride the cogwheel train to Jungfraujoch, one of Europe’s highest-altitude train stations, set 11,333 feet (3,454 meters) above sea level in a UNESCO-listed wilderness, and dubbed the ‘Top of Europe.’ Gaze at the snowy mountains as the train navigates the Kleine Scheidegg pass, and disembark at Jungfraujoch to enjoy the different activities and viewpoints. Head for the Alpine Sensation, a visual-experience moving walkway that transports you past presentations showcasing the Jungfrau Railway’s history, and experience the Ice Palace glacier walk to see its glittering ice sculptures. Then, visit the Sphinx Observatory for stunning panoramas over the Aletsch Glacier, and the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau. If you wish, refuel at the restaurant (own expense) before the cogwheel train ride to ‘Eigergletscher’, where you will change to the V-Cableway Eiger Express. After approx. 15 minutes you will reach Grindelwald Terminal, where your coach awaits. Your tour finishes at the original starting point.

Truly once in a lifetime experience. Hats off to Barbara (our tour guide) and Armando (our driver) for their outstanding efforts to make this a truly memorable journey.

Barbara is one of the most professional tour guides I've met. From start to finish, Barbara's insights and guidance was simply outstanding.

Armando is a truly experienced driver and the whole trip was comfortable and smooth.

The office desk at Grayline clarified any doubts we had prior to the departure and were available on call and easy to reach.

We departed Zurich on time. We had a quick 30-40 minute stop at Interlaken. Perfect time to get some pictures and a restroom break. From there, we started our journey to Jungfraujoch connecting on two scenic cogwheel train rides that took us to the top.

Jungfraujoch has multiple experiences including ice palace, glacier walk, sphinx observatory, and more. There are 2-3 options for lunch at various price points.

The Jungrau passport/ certificate of visit was a nice momento to carry back.

We took the new Eiger express (Gandola) back down. Great views and totally worth it.

Overall 100% would recommend this experience.

This is a must do while visiting Zurich. The trip with make you see a lot from farms to waterfalls, cool cities and then snow and mountains. You will use also multiple transportation to get to the top, bus, trains, and cable rides. It’s the highlight of my visit. I love it !!!

This was an outstanding day and run so efficiently! All the bus rides and train rides were lovely, and the overall experience was truly unforgettable. Barbara was the BEST tour guide..one of the best I’ve ever experienced. She was more than a tour guide; she was a friend all day, and she was so knowledgeable about the area and Zurich in general. I would do this tour again if given the opportunity. Worth every penny!

Had a wonderful experience with Hans Meier. We were given utmost priority and attention throughout the tour. We were the first to this trip after Switzerland opened it's borders.

Thanks to Guide Raymond and cab driver Louis who were so kind and supportive throughout the entire trip. They made sure the cab was completely clean and sanitized for our safety.

On all the cog wheel trains to and from Jungfraujoch, we were given the front most seats which were reserved specially for us. The weather was so clear and we were lucky to see the beautiful landscapes.

The snow at the top was clear and crisp where we had ample time to experience and play in the snow. Worth while time for families. The Ice Palace is another wonder and is a must visit. There is a Bollywood restaurant at the top with a great view. Souvenir and Lindt chocolate shops are also present.

We embarked on this journey in an open air cogwheel train first through lush green fields and then the ice started appearing till we reached Kleine Scheidegg station from where we set off in another train that was temperature controlled and finally to the top of Europe. It was simply magnificient and exceedingly beautiful. We spent the entire day there and had lunch in the Bollywood restaurant Cae back in the same trains. Much recommended.

I was visiting from London and it was my first time to Switzerland. I took the bus from Zurich and made the best decision ever by deciding to book through the Gray Line Zurich Tour group. We were lucky and ended up with a smaller group of 6 on a Saturday and had Raymond as our tour guide. The experience was unforgettable and Raymond made the whole experience so much more personalized and I learned so much about the history and cultural traditions through Switzerland. Our driver from Portugal was also very excellent and I could tell my tour group was in good hands. I have gone on a lot of tours around the world previously, but Raymond hands down was the best I have ever seen and was so caring about our well being and making sure we had the best time!
