    For this trip compared to our Mt Titlis one, our guide Catherine was very clear and good. She not only spoke well in English and Spanish, she introduced many parts of our journey and background knowledge of Switzerland to us.

    This tour was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable. People who do this tour must realize that there is a significant amount of self-guided time. There certainly could have been more specific instruction about how to actually get to the cable car to get up to Mt. First. It wasn’t terribly difficult to figure out, but that was a small bit that was lacking. In general, though, the tour and the whole experience were absolutely fantastic!!!
