What To Expect

Start your day trip near the main train station in central Lucerne, where you’ll meet your guide aboard the coach for the drive to Lauterbrunnen. The scenic journey winds below the impressive mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland en route to your destination in the UNESCO-listed wilderness of Switzerland’s Bernese Alps.

On arrival at Lauterbrunnen, your guide accompanies you on a 100-minute cogwheel train ride to Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest-altitude railway station sitting 11,333 feet above sea level. Along the way, travel through the breathtaking mountain pass of Kleine Scheidegg, situated beneath the famous Eiger North Face. 

Disembark at the Top of Europe and head to the Alpine Sensation — a round-tour subway opened to mark the centenary of the Jungfrau Railway. This latest attraction links the Ice Palace and Sphinx Observatory, where you can soak up panoramic views over Aletsch Glacier, Europe's longest glacier. On a clear day, look as far as the snow-capped peaks of France and Italy. 

If you wish, purchase a snack or a warm drink at the on-site 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. Then hop aboard your coach for the return drive to central Lucerne where your tour concludes in the evening.

Lucerne Station (Pass By)

Meet your guide and hop aboard your air-conditioned coach in central Lucerne near the train station, and head out of the city on a scenic tour into the magnificent mountain world of the Bernese Oberland.


In Interlaken you will have some limited time before boarding the coach for a short drive to Lauterbrunnen.

A nice trip that had room for improvement
KennWay_L, Mar 2023
The experience to Jungfrau was amazing, we managed to capture nice shots at Jungfrau. However the stop at Interlaken was almost rushed, it almost felt like a toilet stop than an actual site to visit. We had a very small group with us but the unfortunate thing was our guide didn't speak English fluently and the accent he had made it quite challenging for us to comprehend what was said and this made the trip a tad frustrating as we weren't able to get what was being shared. There were toilet stops that he claimed was not available due to the rush in getting us up Jungfrau but I noticed there were available. But the guide was great and quick at ensuring we all got great photo shots whilst on the way up to the peak of Jungfrau on the cogwheel.

This was an absolutely amazing tour and experience, despite minimal visibility due to a snowstorm. We highly recommend this experience!

Great tour & fantastic guide! Exceeded my expectations! Bus was clean and ride was smooth. Definitely bring gloves, hat and non slip shoes
Breathtakingly beautiful.
Anthony_O, Jan 2023
Weather was perfect. Views stunning. Transport was excellent. No eating or drinking on bus! That was a bit strange! Might want to think about changing that or telling potential customers. Crowds! But the tour staff organized the trip well. We really enjoyed the entire day.
It was all memorable! ...

It was all memorable! Our guide, Kid, was great! At first he seemed like a drill sgt. - “sit here”, “stand here”, “hurry, hurry”. I soon realized that he just wanted us to experience the trip to the fullest. He was constantly taking pictures for us and of us. He was pleasantly flamboyant!
George_G, Dec 2022
Our guide, Kid, made the trip more memorable for all guests with his penchant to take photos of us at all stages of the trip. Of course, a bright sunny day was certainly a winner!
Horrible Kid
Venkata_B, Dec 2022
Horrible experience due to the guide Mr Kid. He never cared for us. He had few favourites like Mike, Natalie, Sandra. For everything they are only important. He ignored us completely. He organised the photo session in the train going up. But he never asked to come for that.
Great experience
Real_B, Dec 2022
Great memorable experience of a lifetime. Skies cleared up giving us great views. Our guide was was very good and worked hard at keeping g the group together and taking pics of every one on the train while going up to the top. Also great enthusiasm
Definitely do this tour!
Vanessa_C, Nov 2022
I’d give it a 4.5 if it was possible, because everyone should do this trip! It was amazing! I loved the ice palace and going up to the flag even if it was windy and sleeting and snowing. The bus was late getting us from Lucerne and so we literally had 12 minutes in Interlaken. The guide was very knowledgeable and the best at making sure you get great photos. He was kind of hard to understand due to his accent. I did really appreciated him watching out for me since was traveling solo. I thought I was being silly by bringing my ice attachments for my shoes and big coat, but not silly at all. I wish I’d brought my skiing gloves!
Day Trip to the Top of Europe
James_L, Nov 2022
An incredible trip to the top of Europe. The scenery was beautiful beyond belief. The entire journey from pickup to drop off went flawlessly and the benefits of being part of a group meant skipping the lines and waiting. Our guide Kid was awesome and kicked an absolutely amazing trip up a notch. When I booked I thought it was a little pricey however after experiencing it I feel that it was good value for the money. Highly recommended.
The only way to see the “Top of Europe”!
Craig_D, Nov 2022
Your guide Kid “rocks!”. The bus ride through the awesome landscape along with his guidance on when to take scenic pictures was worth the price of admission alone. He shepherded his team through the obstacles of other tour groups with utter precision! This is the Way to experience the wonderful alps if you are on time constraints.
Amazing experience!
Ann_C, Nov 2022
Kid was a great tour guide. I had a lot of fun and laughs throughout this trip. It was definitely worth the visit! Thank you.
Breathtaking views, unreal

Amazing experience, the views speak for themselves. Not sure what else there is to say. It was unreal.
A wonderful experience!
Brandy_R, Oct 2022
Kid made this experience so enjoyable! He made sure we saw everything we could during the tour. He was great at explaining the history of the areas we passed through. He was very energetic and got the entire group many photo opportunities! This tour was incredible!

Kid, our tour guide was the most interactive and full of life. He gave us all the best and cool pics - even took the pic himself for us. He made the long trip so enjoyable! Very recommended!!
10/10 would recommend
Sarah_T, Sep 2022
This was an excellent day out and an absolute highlight of our trip! Our tour guide was Kid and he was amazing, an eccentric guy who is very good at his job and takes photos for you as he knows all the good places to take them. Worth the price you pay in my opinion. We also had great people on our tour, a range of ages and backgrounds and it was lovely to get to chat to everyone.
The best tour.
Princess_H, Sep 2022
The tour guide, Kid, was excellent. He took care of us, took pictures for us, talked to us. I felt safe and taken cared of the whole entire time.
Amazing experience
Ashley_L, Sep 2022
Our travel guide was AMAZING! He stayed with us the whole time, and took so many photos of us without even having to ask, and made the whole experience fun!!
Kid the Super Travel Guide
Thirumal_T, Sep 2022
The tour guide made the trip. Kid was a great guide, I would recommend folks use Kid for this trip. He kept track of his customers and was talking on top of everything.
Best day of our trip!
Karen_C, Aug 2022
This was an absolutely wonderful excursion! We had a beautiful day but our tour guide “Kid” was simply awesome! He was so graciously looking after us (mature tourists) and made sure we did not miss a thing and always capturing it in our photos! We were so impressed and could not have had a better experience! Loved i!
