Jungfraujoch tour questions

Jump to last reply

I will be in Interlaken next week and am thinking about doing this tour. I understand that it is best to wait to book it until the day before or so in case of weather. But being new to Switzerland, and this board, I have a couple of questions.
Are there multiple tour companies that I need to look at or do they all cover the same region - Wengen, Kleine Schediegg, Grindelwald, Junfrau, etc?
How much of the cost will be covered by my Swiss Pass?
Can someone give me a few details of the actual trip up the mountain? Is it scary - meaning are there lots of tunnels, scary heights, etc? I'll have my kids with me and I tend to not enjoy "theme park" type heights. Is there any need to worry about altitude sickness?
I know I sound paranoid, but I just want to come prepared and prepare my children. I know it's a fabulous experience!
