The Skyline Walk platform was fantastic!

More drinks and snacks were available when we reached Piz Gloria.

After a while, we started to hear a noise of the helicopters and soon they flew over us with bang sounds and they turned around and landed at the heliport.

Here are some of the information boards on 007 Walk of Fame:

Sylvana Henriques and Terence Mountain were very nice and they gave autograph to our Little Agent Traveler and they also posed with our little Bond girl on 007 Walk of Fame.

At the
BOND WORLD 007 we were only visitors with Vic Armstrong and Wendy Leech visiting at the same time with us.

Later inside the revolving Restaurant Piz Gloria, we had fine dining dinner and we saw also the great fireworks which ended with burning 007 logo.

During the evening we took part in VIP Opening of 007 Walk of Fame competition and answered Bond and 007 Walk of Fame related questions.

The prizes were:

* Skydiving for two above the Lauterbrunnen valley
* A helicopter flight for two in the Mürren - Schilthorn region
* Paragliding tandem flight for two from Mürren to Stechelberg

007 Travelers congratulates the winners!

Late at night we traveled back by same cable car with George Lazenby from Piz Gloria to Mürren, where extremely nice staff of Schilthorn was waiting for VIP guests and we got some greetings from them.

Visiting Schilthorn Piz Gloria is always an amazing experience which we highly recommend for everyone!
