Disappointed

, Sep 2021
This tour was a little disappointing. Our tour bus was combined with 2 other tours, which means we had a lot of stops to pick/drop off others. I feel like this wasted a lot of valuable time. The “tour guide” spoke a bit on the drive but didn’t provide much insight like you’d expect on a tour. My group was the last to be dropped off, but by that time, the tour guide had already left so we were on our own. The bus driver dropped us off near Mt First but gave us no direction on where to walk. We all got lost trying to find the entrance. Once on the mountain, we had an amazing time doing the activities. I’d recommend skipping this “tour” and just taking the train to Interlaken then to Grindelwald train station. Then buy your own tickets to Mt First. Although the drive up was beautiful, I felt like so much time was wasted just getting there and then trying to race back down to catch the bus back.

Dear Danielle, Thank you very much for your detailed feedback for our Grindelwald First – Top Adventure tour. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the activities on top of Mt First and we hope that your memories will last you a lifetime. We are sorry that the tour and especially its logistics did not meet your expectations. The merging of groups allows us to offer tours not only to well-known destinations such as Jungfraujoch but also to smaller but no less interesting places with lower guest numbers - like the destination of your choice! According to the tour description, the tour is partly guided and accompanied from Zurich to Grindelwald and from Interlaken back to Zurich. For the individual ascent and descent at Mt First, the activities on the mountain and the train ride to Interlaken, tickets and a written itinerary are already provided at check-in. We followed up your feedback with your tour guide and he confirmed that he has repeatedly referred to the booklet, which also includes an orientation map and asked if there were any questions. Nevertheless, we are sorry to hear that you have lost valuable time in finding your way around. Like literally any destination in Switzerland, Mt First can of course be visited individually by public transport. However, since it involves many train changes and is ultimately more expensive (from CHF 256.- instead of CHF 199.- from Zurich incl. adventure activities, excl. tour guide), many guests appreciate our tour as a convenient and hassle-free way to get there. We hope that you enjoyed your stay in Switzerland and look forward to welcoming you back on tour during your next visit! Best regards, Amanda from Best of Switzerland Tours

Dear Em, Thank you very much for choosing Best of Switzerland Tours for a special birthday gift to your boyfriend!

You are on your own and it isn't so easy to find your way. It's a really good excursion But the day we went the weather was bad-raining and ZERO visability. We got lost finding our way up to the top and when we finally got there, we were informed that the zip line was closed!! BUT they had just opened the Eagle flight, we were thrilled to do it even though it was Zero visability it was fun and adventurous!! We took the the mountain carts down to the next level-also fun But were advised not to take the scooters in the rain for the third part down. Fantastic day-Instructions not clear enough- But definitely a great day for adventurous people!!!

The tour itself was so amazing! One of the most fun days I have ever experienced, and the views on top of Mount First, and the whole way down, are truly incredible. I went on a Saturday, so be prepared to be waiting in line for each activity. We weren't expecting this, and it was a bit of a rush to catch the bus at the end as a result. The only negative I have was that the tour company was a bit disorganized. They put the wrong meeting address on our voucher, and we were almost late for the bus from Zurich, and they forgot to give us the correct voucher to redeem for all of the activities, and as a result, we had to wait in a long line, and almost had to pay again. Other than these two instances of frustration, the actual activities are great, adventurous, and so much fun. Would 100 recommend!

My experience with First Trip Top Adventure was great! Leaving the place on time and the guide named Michelle shared information on Switzerland which are very interesting. She is very accommodating as well. The only thing that saddened us is the fact that we were not able to try all the adventure rides because of the long queue in the First Flyer which took us around two hours. But it is really worth the wait! We only wish though that we had longer hours.

This is a new tour and I can't put into words how great of an experience this was! From the organization, to the transportation, to the activities, and most important to the views, everything was top notch. A day I will certainly never forget! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This is good for all ages and certainly need to be some sort of dare devil in you!
