For those of you reading this, know that I am an introvert who is also scared of new experiences and meeting people. This was my first solo trip ever and I am so proud of myself for doing it. I met really wonderful, kind and helpful people of this trip. Our tour guide Franz Husmann, Pink and driver Josie were amazing. Swiss people are very punctual and organised, no kidding! I had no trouble in the entire trip. Everything was smooth and very well planned. Thank you Team. Hope to plan many more trips with you.

It's a good experience specially for those interested in 007 otherwise it's just a nice top. Thrill walk in Birg is really a thrilling experience (although it's safe but it's not for people fearing from heights). Cable cars are very good and views on the way are stunning. You get to see small beautiful town of Murren and Stechelberg, the most beautiful and calm area of the valley.

Everything run very smoothly from start to the end of the day

One of the best experiences of your life! Don't ever miss it!

Mr Hussman was a great guide. Very enjoyable trip.
