The activity is excellent, the hikes at the top are superb to do. On the other hand, be careful with GetYourGuide, they are not well interfaced with the Swiss railways, you have to come with the printed confirmation otherwise it's very very very difficult. Better to book directly on the jungfrau.ch website.

It was a great experience going thru the mountains and forests in this small and old style train. The view was spectacular and on the top had a lot of things to see and do. Highly recommended.
