    5. Kids below certain age can often eat for free when their parents eat buffet at the restaurants. But since number of seats provided is only for paid members, it might be required to manage the unpaid child on parents lap. When you need a seat for your child, you can pay the price for older children and join in.
    6. Jungfrau: Jungfrau is Europe’s highest point by train. The cablecar+train ride takes you to 4000mts above sea level. An amazing engineering and breath taking scenary on the way. Once you reach the top there are 9 attraction points (well marked), food options (also Indian), chocolate, watch shops.
        • Plan: Our bus will drop you at Grindelwald Terminal station. Upon arrival here, our tour manager will hand over the tickets to you and take you to the cable car start point. The manager will not accompany you any further. You take the cable car, change to train after sometime (this is a very easy step) and reach the top – Jungfraujoch. After spending 2.0hrs (usually we manage to get 2.5hrs) at Jungfrau, take the return train that starts at 16:15 from Jungfraujoch towards Grindelwald Terminal. You will catch our tour bus at 17.30 at Grindelwald Terminal.
        • Cost: When you book online at https://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html, you can purchase for about 200€ per adult or you could buy from us at 185€. (Note: by default, the website chooses ‘Half rate card’. You need to change it to ‘no discount’ option). Advance reservation is a must. It is usually not possible to add on the spot. Cancellation is possible until 10.00am same day.


    7. Note: In case you miss the return train and get delayed in arrival back to Grindelwald (the evening pickup point), you may have to manage your own transport back to hotel.
