We spent a wonderful day in that wonderful gift of Nature that is the alpine territory that surrounds Piz Gloria. It was very nice to eat in the revolving panoramic restaurant. Everything was easier thanks to Abraham's guide, who was very kind to us. There are two things that would improve the activity, taking into account the total price of the tour: including some food or drink and some transportation to and from Interlaken East Station.

Michael was a terrific guide. He gave us history and geography of the area. We did not feel rushed. We completed all activities that were on the trip description. It helped that the weather cooperated and we had a great day to view the surrounding mountains. We even had Martinis- shaken, not stirred- at the top!

We had the best guide anyone could ask for! Eric was extremely informative, attentive to all our questions, and very witty. He willingly assisted us in not only making the most of this spectacular tour, but also helped us with our immediate and future transportation needs. Just fabulous in every way!

Excellent excursion

Wonderful day, very well organized. Our guide Toni, very friendly, very cultivated, gave us lots of details concerning the site, the history. We highly recommend this excursion.

Amazing experience! Very friendly and informative guide. Excellent restaurant and breathtaking view.
