This is a wonderful day trip if you want to see the Swiss countryside visit picturesque Alpine villages. Be prepared for a long bus ride, but you will be given a lot of free time in the two towns to either shop, eat, or go up the mountain for activities there. This was our favorite part of our trip to Zurich! Be aware there are multiple different tour groups on the same bus with you (maybe 50-80 people on the bus?). You will be given a colored sticker to indicate which tour group you are in, so make sure to pay attention to the announcements of which tour group is getting on/off the bus.

A very nice excursion. Worth. As a downside, he was not very guided. They just took us to the places, gave us free time and picked us up to go to the next place. Our guide (Isa Switzerland) at least did not explain practically anything: it is more the transport.

The experience was wonderful! But it is an excursion that you are very alone. The train from Grindwarld to Interlaken they give you the ticket and you do it alone until you arrive at the scheduled meeting point. It's a great tour, but you have to be very independent. It is not a guided tour all the time. But it's worth! The bus driver Ernesto spoke Portuguese and helped me a lot.
