    From before we even got to Switzerland, staff were really friendly with emails about what to wear. This was such an amazing experience for myself and my two boys. Marcel and Yannick went above and beyond to make it an experience we’ll not forget and the rest of the crew were all just as friendly. I suppose it helped having good weather,but I bet it’s still just good in the rain. It’s the experience, and if you can, get them to do the 360!!

    The views were beyond what I expected. Our tour guide Jorge was fantastic! He made our day fun and informative. This was the BEST event to book on my trip to Switzerland. I encourage anyone thinking about booking a day to Jungfrau to do it! You will NOT be disappointed.

    Stayed in Zurich with my family, nine of us from 23rd to 26th December 2023, we are from the Caribbean and for most of us had never seen snow and was expecting a white Christmas, but no luck as well as all shops.closed on 24th, 25th and 26th December, this was something mind blowing to us, where we come from its busy that time, so we are glad we booked this tour in advance for Christmas day, so we had something to do, was disappointed we didn't see snow on the drive only little patches, but we went up to Mt First, wow it was amazing, snow as far as the eye could see it was an amazing Christmas gift, and restaurants were opened as usual there were lots of people, we ate at a pizza place and it was amazing

    The tour guides were amazing and the bus was comfortable the only negative, we had to wait for a very long time in the cold for our bus to reach at the pick up point to head back to Zurich, all the other busses in our group arrived long before ours, and we had 3 kids in our group, but would definitely recommend this tour regardless, wish we had more time to explore other parts of Switzerland

    Day 1-I want to start my summary by thanking all the TA experts for their advice, suggestions, and quick responses
    to my inquires. Your help and the help of many of the lovely people we met in Turkey made this visit very special.If any one has any questions, please reach out. I will post individual reviews of the hotels, restaurants, and some of our experiences separately. I hope the pictures I post will begin to do justice to the variety of experiences we had over the 15 days exploring the treasures of Turkey.Day 4 -11 we joined an organized Gate 1 Tour
    We begin- left New York on a direct night flight to Istanbul on Turkish Airlines. Despite, lots of help on the site, we had a little difficulty with public transportation from the airport. If I were do it again, would take a taxi to our hotel. We missed our bus connection and did not want to wait an addition 45 minutes for the next bus. We purchased our Istanbulckart card outside the airport and bought two additional bus tickets that would get us to the Mararay train. Short story, it was dark and we were unfamiliar but fortunately we met a stewardess on our bus, got off the bus with her and she put us in a cab and were at our hotel in 20 minutes. Arrived at the Renaissance Polat Istanbul Hotel and could not have been more pleased. They have the largest outdoor swimming pool in a hotel in Istanbul and I had the pool to myself. They also have a wonderful indoor pool. Bring your bathing suits and bathing cap if you want to use the pool. First night, we ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was beautifully presented and well prepared. We over ordered but really enjoyed the chicken corn soup and grilled fish.

    Day2-Merhaba The adventure begins- We booked the “Taste of Two Continents” excursion on TA before coming. Our tour leader Tugce Ucar was a passionate foodie, presenting a historic, cultural, and food prospective of the foods in Istanbul. We began with an outdoor typical Turkish breakfast with ingredients our guide picked up around the Spice Market. We had nine very unique food experiences. A 20 minute ferry ride to the Asian side of Istanbul was perfect. There, food included lamb intestines, a salted yogurt drink, wonderful fermented grape that is not quite considered a wine, a buttery dish with honey lentil soup, stuffed grape leaves,Turkish eggs- my favorite, etc. We had pickles at Lezzet-i Sark,Beyyran, Kadikoy Ozcan Tursu. This establishment opened in 1935 and started as a pushcart. Isskender Iskienderroglu is a fourth generation restaurant. Last restaurant stop was Mado Geercek Lezzetler for an ice cream and baklava desert- everything in the display looked delicious. It was a well spent 6 hour day which included a ferry to the Asian side and if you wanted, the tour ended near the Kakdikoy ferry terminal with a return trip on the ferry. We opted to stay and walk around. While not inexpensive, we really found the tour worthwhile as we got to explore different neighborhoods with an experienced local guide. We also wandered the streets in the neighborhood of Moda. We saw many tables with people playing the game “OK” which I believe Is called Rummy cube in the states. Despite eating for 6 hours, we managed to have a small dinner agin at the hotel.

    Day 3- We took the metro to the Basilica Cistern. It was an easy walk uphill from the train. We passed a great place for freshly squeezed peach juice. It is a most impressive scientific and engineering feat considering both the time and the resources. The underground water-storage tank was built to supply Constantinople with water as it was the ideal site for trade but did not have a local source of its own.We were told that they also have concerts there and it is often used in film locations. It is opened from 9-5. We went first thing in the morning and had no difficulty getting tickets.
    After, we went to the Tomb of Sultan Ahmed, and worked our way to the Sultanahmet Camii, or the Blue Mosque. It is known for its more than 20,000 blue ionic tiles. The line, though very long, moved quickly. Female visitors must wear a scarf. It is oped 9-7 but closes during prayer time. On our way to lunch, we passed the Hurrem Sultan Hammy, Turkish baths. By the time I joined my husband outside, as there are separate Turkish baths for men and women, he had booked us a full treatment for 1:00. The service was 5 stars! I was pampered, scrubbed, and feed. This was an amazing experience. We were told that the bubble massage is traditional and the oil massage is something that tourist like. I enjoyed every part. Afterwards, walked through the Grand Bazar and found the building very interesting but overwhelming. We took the tram, and metro back to the hotel, joining our Gate1 tour for introductions and a lite dinner.

    Day 4 - Even though we are now on the tour, I thought it would be helpful to list some of the things we did with them and on our own. First stop was the Rustem Pashe, a 17th century Ottoman Mosque. It is considered one of the most beautiful small mosques with beautiful traditional tile work both geometric and floral designs. Afterwards, off to the Hippodrome. It was made famous during the Roman period for chariot races, and athletic events.
    We went into Topkapi Palace which reminded me of the Forbidden City in China with its many different walled courtyards. A lunch spot for good chicken and rice. World Famous Pudding Shop Restaurant, opened since 1957. It was at one time a hippy hang out. It is famous for rice pudding. Bill Clinton also once ate there.
    We returned to the Spice market and once again teased by the aromas. This time we could not resist buying the famous Turkish coffee from Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi. We noticed that the spices were less expensive outside of the market and were told that is where locals shop for spices and teas. Afternoon at Hagia Sophia, the 6th century Byzantine Basilica which became a museum but was converted back to a mosque in 2020. Closed during prayer times, it re opens from 9-11 everyday .The dome is considered a miracle as it doesn’t really fit perfectly. We also saw the St. Sophia Turkish Islamic Arts museum - including a beautiful rug exhibit. That evening, back near out hotel, we found a local spot where we grilled our own food.
    Day5- Took a bus to Galilee. On our way to the Anzac Cemetary, a memorial to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp that fought against the Ottoman during World War 1. Our bus crossed on the ferry from Europe to Asia to visit Troy.
    Day 6- Ate in a local village called Gobbler, meaning “brothers who share the same tummy”. This was one of the highlights of my time in Turkey. I was with 5 other (gluten free) travelers and the vegetarian meal including the bread was prepared so we did not have to worry. It was wonderful getting to know this lovely family .Visited Pregamum on our way to Izmir, walking the waterside promenade at sunset near our hotel.
    Day 7- Excursion to Ephesus and House of the Virgin Mary, the temple of Hadrian, Archaeological Museum, the toilets, spa areas, even Elvis, yes Elvis.
    Day 8- Visited the Necropolis and the ancient city of Hierapolis atop of the Pamukkale hot springs. It has white calcium cascades. The hotsprings, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. It has served as a thermal bath since the 2nd century B.C If you chose to take a dip, bring a towel.This area is also well known for yogurt, honey, and poppy seeds. Important tip- It is very slippery and we saw many fit people slip and fall.You are only allowed to go barefoot in this protected area.
    Day 9- Antalya Archaeological Museum , and Perge. The museum with artifacts dating back over 2500 years. It is set up chronologically and is another museum that I would have returned to if I had more time.
    Day 10- Early morning air Balloon Ride in Cappadocia. This was something I really was looking forward to, having done balloon rides in several countries and was excited to soar over the fairy chimney formations. The company itself was very efficient in picking us up from the hotel and returning us. I was impressed how the balloonist landed on the flat bed trucks.That afternoon we opted to do a half day tour of Capppadocia including the Open Air Museum on the Goreme Valley to see the early Christian Churches and the Ozkonak Underground city. There are 365 churches at the open air museum. The Apple Church left an impression. In the underground city we saw evidence of wine making, pottery, sophisticated safe houses. It is not for anyone, if you are claustrophobic, you might want to skip this one.
    Day 11- Cruise the Bosphorus in perfect weather. This was a wonderful experience and a nice way to share time with the new friends we made on the trip.It also gave us ideas of places we still wanted to visit before returning to the states.
    Day12- Back on our own-Return to Istanbul, staying at the Mr 10 Karakoy Hotel, centrally located hotel in walking distance to The Galata Towers and bridge. We took a short tram ride to the Istanbul Modern, eager to see contemporary Turkish artist’s work. We were fortunate to catch the photographs by Nuri Bilge Ceylan and exciting work by women artists and digital installations. They do have a senior admission rate that is not advertised.I would strongly recommend the museum which also has a lovely gift shop.The museum is closed on Mondays. Next stop was Dolmabahce Palace,also closed on Monday now a public museum. Our ticket included entry to Selamllik, Harem, Painting museum, and the gardens. The buildings, gates, grounds are worth seeing. DInner at restaurant recommended by our hotel, on an upper floor near the foot of the bridge. They are known for kebobs, Turkish pizza, and grilled fish.
    Day 13- crossed the bridge to return to the Spice Market and picked up spices from Elmaslar just outside the market, directly opposite the coffee roaster Kurukahueci Mehmet Efendi,in business since 1871. We noticed that this shop was filled with local women making purchases. The owner was very helpful, with no pressure, suggesting teas and spices, each vacuum packed for customers for travel and freshness. Back on the other side of the bridge for lunch we went to Durumzade , a tiny place recommended by Anthony Bourdaine and my son. This is inexpensive street food with a few tables. They do not accept credit cards. We had a plate of grilled meats. We wandered the streets, including the shopping street Istiklal with a mission to go to Barnathan Istanbul a hotel restaurant with a rooftop that has panaramic views including the Galata Towers. We came for the views and stayed for the Brownie and ice cream desert. Good service,but you must have a reservation for dinner.
    Day 14- Took advantage of our last morning and walked over the bridge once again to return to Elmaslar, at the spice market for Sumac and wandered the largest outdoor market, and Fatih neighborhood before leaving Turkey.

    The guided tour to Jungfraujoch was an exceptional experience. We had English-speaking guides who provided us with insightful commentary throughout the trip. What impressed us the most was the effort made by "Best of Switzerland Tours" to accommodate Chinese tourists by arranging one of the Putonghua-speaking guides, ensuring everyone felt included and well-guided.

    One of the highlights of the guided tour was the seamless organisation. Reserved seats and minimal waiting times for transfers between cable cars and trains made the journey incredibly convenient. With the guidance of the tour, we didn't have to worry about finding the right trains and platforms, allowing us to enjoy a hassle-free visit.

    We took the Eiger Express cable car up, and the Cogwheel train down, which provided us with different perspectives of the Swiss Alps, showcasing the breathtaking scenery.

    The Jungfraujoch itself was truly spectacular. It offered both indoor and outdoor attractions, providing options for those who wanted to stay warm or venture outside.

    Our group gathered from Interlaken at 10:45 am and arrived at Jungfraujoch at approximately 1:15 pm. Despite some mid-day fog, it cleared up in the afternoon, and we were able to witness a clear sky at Jungfraujoch, adding to the awe-inspiring experience.

    The 2.5-hour timeframe at Jungfraujoch allowed us sufficient time to visit all the attractions without missing anything. We spent most of our time at the Jungfraujoch Sphinx Observatory and the Plateau. We were able to fully immerse ourselves in the wonders of Jungfraujoch, making unforgettable memories.

    A special thanks go to "Best of Switzerland Tours" and the four tour guides who accompanied us throughout the day. Their excellent service and attention to detail greatly enhanced our experience. We highly recommend this guided tour to anyone seeking to explore Jungfraujoch and indulge in the beauty of Switzerland.

    Took the day trip to Interlaken and Grindelwald. Interlaken is a very quaint town in a valley. Very beautiful place to walk around and spend a few hours. Most spectacular view was watching the Paragliders. Grindelwald is absolutely God's country. The town is surrounded by the Alps. If want to take a relaxing day trip, this one is highly recommended.

    Overall a must do - beautiful views (especially if a clear day which we got). Train rides were nice. The guide use for mostly to make sure we got on the right trains, else no use of a guide. While the trip was great, it was a little rushed; not much time to eat at the beautiful restaurant that is on the 2nd floor; did not get much time to explore and take pictures at places like Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. The entire trip is really to be at Jungfrau. I would do this again, but perhaps not leverage a tour and do it on your own.

    Coach West was very attentive for beginner. She provided clear instructions and tips for first timer like us. The trip to Bodmi was easy via Merc Van and we can choose many pick up points between Interlaken and Grindelwald. They managed to accommodate our last minute booking on the same day. Ski equipment and clothes are available with many sizes.

    This was one of our most favorite parts of our trip! The e-bikes made it incredibly easy to move around, and we were able to see areas of Switzerland that we otherwise would not have made it to. Our tour guide was super friendly and informative and offered to take pictures of everyone at different scenic points. The meet-up point was in downtown Interlaken so very easy to find. Such a memorable experience!

    I had an unforgettable experience on my Jungrau tour last year, and I owe much of it to my fantastic guide, Jonas. The journey, starting with the gondola ride in Grindelwald and progressing through trains and elevators to reach the toop of Europe-Jungfraujoch, was awe-inspiring. The panoramic view from the top, above the clouds, were breathtaking-especially with the blessing of great weather.
    Exploring the glacier and ice cave, enjoying the amenities like the restaurant and gift shop, added to the charm of Jungfraujoch. Jonas made the experience more enriching by sharing insights about the various viewpoints. The descent included a picturesque stop at Lauterbrunen for some memorable photo opprotunities.
    This full-day trip was made truly special by Jonas's expertise and the wealth of information he shared about Jungfrau and the surrounding areas. I am grateful for the memorable journey.

    We really enjoyed Fabian’s magical tour of this region. It was an unforgettable experience because he truly has a passion for this region and is very knowledgeable about all aspects: terrain; local customs; the people. The list just goes on and after our time walking (easy walk- beautiful not strenuous) and visiting my friend and I had a true picture of the region. Do not miss the opportunity to see
    Alpine vistas and farm villages with an insider!

    My husband and I did a day tour to Interlaken and Grindlewald from Lucerne, Switzerland.
    We had a nice time on the tour but the stop in Interlaken was nothing special. We loved Grindlewald and would have loved to have time to go to Lake Briens rather than two stops in Interlaken.

    Everyone in the trip had booked slightly different experiences so understanding that made things a bit confusing. We also kept getting told different times for returning to our pick up point which produced some anxiety around not missing our shuttle back.
    We did book through a travel agent so some of the options may not have been provided to us the same way they would have been had we booked direct. All in all the tour was a nice way to experience nearby areas.
