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.

The weather was not perfect on that day, but Kid the tour leader was great. He was very energetic and fun to go with. He knew all the nice spots for taking photos and even helped us to take our photos.

Our tour guide Mr. Kid was the highlight of the trip. Not only did he ensure we saw all the important points but he also took amazing pictures for the whole group. Besides, he continuously entertained us with his jokes and change of outfits 😂 Best tour I have been on! Highly recommend to do this tour only with this company!

This tour is a must do! The scenery and beauty are so amazing that pictures don’t do it justice. Jungfraujoch is absolutely stunning, if you have a nice clear day. Kid was our guide and he is beyond amazing! He kept things extremely organized while making it the best day! He took multiple photos for every guest and knew all of the best spots to get the best photos! You can tell that his passion is making sure that everyone has a wonderful time and he certainly succeeded!! The bus was clean and comfortable. The tour is really worth the price. I would go again in a heartbeat!

Excellent experience, but not for children or folks with health condition. My daughter got a nose bleed, and many other children did as well. One of my relatives needed oxygen, as she couldn't breathe. So not to scare you, but to warn you, as had we known we would've made alternate arrangements for my child and relative.

Our tour guide was Kid, from Thailand. He was very humorous and nice. He took care of us very well during the trip. He made sure all of us have nice pictures along the way too! we have plenty of time on top of the Europe to take pictures as well.

The facility provided by gray line was amazing, clean bus, clean washroom on board and Wi-Fi available too.

Overall it’s a nice trip from a nice company. Will definitely return to them with other trips soon

The best tour I have ever experienced. Everything was perfect. Our tour guide, Kid, was fantastic, taking photos, sharing experiences, and was attentive to the needs of each traveler. His experience and attention to detail made for an outstanding day. The scenery was beyond beautiful. Absolutely worth every second.

There’s something for everyone up here. The sphinx observatory was wonderful views on both sides, and is quite a thrill to walk round if you don’t have a head for heights, since the floor is a see through metal design.
The snow fun was so much more than that. Both the zipline and the sledges and ringos were very good value for money, so is the Lindt Chocolate store at the end of your “tour”.
When we finally dragged ourselves back inside we went through the Ice Palace inside the glacier. No one fell over thank goodness but I’d recommend decent trainers at least as this place really is made of ice!

We came up on the Jungfraubahn and left on the Eiger Express for the full experience.

It’s an amazing trip and we’ve come away with many memories!!

This is supposed to be a great trip. However, first in the morning the gray line person refused to take our ticket even though we showed him the barcode and ticket. Then another person checked and somehow he was able to find our prepaid reservation. The bus ride was nice and the driver was really good. The guide was ok. They never explained clearly important details for the trip. Guide was too fast and quickly disappeared somewhere when we reach Jungfraujoch. We got very little time at the Jungfraujoch and they just rushed us through everything. Coming back, we waited more that 30 min for the bus. Also we reached back 45+ min early. That is 1 hr 15 min time wasted. We paid high price for this trip. It was frustrating that they provided so less time at Jungfraujoch.
