Interlaken and Grindelwald Day Trip from Lucerne
An optional cable car ride (operates late May to late October only) to the sunny terrace of Mt. First at 7,113 feet (2,168 meters) is highly recommended for a breathtaking panorama of the Bernese Alps.
In the late afternoon you'll meet your coach and guide to make the return journey to Lucerne.

Our tour bus came from Zurich, so we got a later start (9:30). It was combined with the Jungfrau tour so some of us stayed in Interlaken and Grindelwald, and some went to the mountain-top. Our tour guide was with them, so he didn't really add any value. We had one short hour in Interlaken and four hours in Grindelwald - it's beautiful, a must-see. The train runs to both cities from Lucerne, so if you are comfortable with that, I recommend doing your own self-guided tour and being able to adjust your times in each place and leave when you want.
Great tour!. Best way to go to the top of the Europe. Peter is very funny and caring. Definitely recommended.
The tour guide was rude, pushy, and treated everyone very rude. Me and my wife enjoyed it because we selected a different tour than most of the group and were alone most of the day to wandering Grindelwald and Interlaken, i couldnt imagine spend the entire day with the guide!! Great places, bad guide.
This tour was amazing!
Tour guide did not do much except to bring us to the destination. The guide could have done better by explaining more stuff about the city, and to give some tips/guidance on what we could do in Grindelwald. It was purely just organizing transport, not really a "tour".
The pickup was very punctual and our guide Barbara was clear and concise i her instructions and offered the Jungfrau upgrade to us on the bus which we declined as we had bee to Jungfrau before. The weather was bitterly cold that day bu we were just able to walk the 2 hours at Interlaken and met up with the drive Emile punctually. We found out that the group going to Jungfrau could not make the journey as the winds were way too high and the entire group proceeded to Grindelwald where due to the low season, many of the shops were still shut. The minus degree cold and snow meant we hid out in the warm restaurants waiting for the pick up. I am of the opinion that it was just bad weather and Barbara and Emile did their best despite the weather challenges placed before them. I would recommend this trip if weather was more forgiving and less harsh but do bear in mind that this is more a transfer to attractions with little guided component which was what i wanted and expected and not to be expected to be run as a full guided tour.
Unless you do the tour to the mountain for an additional 200 Plus per person, it is not the right fit. The bus stays in Interlaken for about 1.5 hrs, then brings you to Grindelwald while the others are touring the mountain top. You are left there to spend 6 hrs on your own. If I had know this in advance, I would have done more research about Grindelwald to find the right places to see. The town is absolutely gorgeous.
