If we go back to Switzerland we want to stay in Lucerne. Amazing town, beautiful lake, great shops. I think this tour was probably an hour or 2 too long. We ended up sitting around waiting for the bus because the bus moves on to other places after it drops you off. The tour guide takes you to go see the Lion statue then you're on your own with the other tourists for an hour. After that hour the people who purchased the other tours move on and you stay in the city. Buy your chocolates, food, water etc. at COOP grocery store. I bought chocolate at this one tourist shop and paid 26 francs when I could have bought it for 18 at COOP. They have the same stuff all the tourist shops have but for less. Same in Zurich, go to COOP to buy all your items. Lucerne is a beautiful city with all the shops and cafes on the river. Totally worth the money.
Really enjoyed this tour ,we had alot of free time on this tour and we really made the most of it. Guide was very helpful and informative. Would recommend this tour.
Our trip was wonderful. Ernest was an excellent guide providing historical information along the way and answering all of our questions. The city of Lucerne is beautiful. The trip could be shortened by 2 hours.
Basically the trip just provide trasportation to and backfrom Zurich to Lucerne. Anyway Lucerne City is a nice and beautiful city.
Excellent tour guide and a wonderful day - thanks heaps.
Lucerne is a beautiful place to visit. My mom and I stayed behind to visit Lucerne for the whole day, while the rest of the tour group went to Mt. Rigi. We had a short introduction to Lucerne, was given a map and was free to enjoy all of Lucerne. It's a good idea to figure out what you want to do the entire time there so that you know how to spend your time well. We thought we'd be able to do the boat trip on the lake, but ran out of time just walking around. Make sure to put Lucerne on your list of places to visit while in Switzerland.
Loved Lucern. Loved our tour leader.
It was really a nice trip, we had lot of fun with no issues at all. Worth doing it.
I decided to do the Lucerne City Tour because it would have been more expensive for me to just hop on a train from Zurich and go to the city for the day. The short city tour only includes you stopping at the dying Lion monument to take pictures. After that, you're dropped off in the city, given a map, and told when to return to the bus. Lucerne is a great city and it's worth a day trip, even without a guide telling you all about the history and such. If you're looking for some free time, definitely do this tour, but if you're looking for something with a tour guide all day, this isn't for you.

Shopping was plentiful. Tour guide was good. It was a pretty landscape.
We were traveling with another couple and had a really great day in Lucerne. The city was beautiful and we had the whole afternoon to explore after the folk show.
