Tour was excellent but not without a few hiccups. First was a problem with picking up passengers in Lucerne. As a result of the delay we were only left with 15 minutes in Interlaken. That was barely enough time to use the bathroom and snap a couple of quick photos. At the end we made an unannounced stop at a gas station. The bus did not get gas and nothing was ever said to the passengers. We returned back in Zurich 30 minutes late. But the highlight was the trip to the top of the mountain. We had perfect weather and this was amazing. Two hours was a good amount of time to do everything up there and not feel rushed. The ice cave was fantastic, going outside was amazing but very cold. And the trip up was memorable. It would have been nice if we had other photo stops. Most photos could only be taken from the top of the mountain or through the bus window if you were seated on the correct side. The tour was very crowded—it filled two double decker buses.

Overall tour was excellent. Tour guide kept us informed all through the start point till end point. Tour was not at all hectic (as I was worried for such a long tour). Itinerary was very well planned/designed where we get ample time to eat, take loads of photos, go to toilets, buy souvenirs etc. Highly recommend this tour operators

Overall, an excellent trip, and can't imagine our trip without the journey to Jungfraujoch! The mountain itself was incredible. Lots of snow despite being the middle of summer, the glacier trains were amazing. Particularly enjoyed the ice sculptures (but do hold onto the railings as I did slip and fall). Also enjoyed seeing so much of the country during the various travels. As the itinerary shows, there is a lot of traveling (by coach, train and cable car) which was all comfortable but did mean 2 1/2 hours at the mountain, a brief stop at Interlaken (which was amazing), and a couple of short stops here and there (usually to pick up passengers or for bathroom breaks). If you want to tick off lots of places at once, this is the tour for you but also note that you won't get much time at any apart from Jungfraujoch. Driver was friendly and tour guide brilliant.
