Luzern is a gorgeous town and you can easily spend the 6 hours here without getting bored. Take a boat trip, and the tourist train.
If you go on a Sunday the number of shops open is reduced.
The trip was let down by the guide and the apparent change in the itinerary. Bought the trip reading that there would be a short city tour upon arrival. Instead we were dropped at a convenient tourist shop (told it was the only one open that day - not true) and given a route march, there was no guide to the sights.
Pick up point wasn't technically accurate.
What a great trip! Couldn't fault it at all. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and his English was flawless. You start with a Pletna ride across to the island of Bled, and spend some time on there. Then you drive around the top of the lake towards the Castle. After a steep walk up the hill at the castle you can have a look around and views out across all of Bled. Then it's down into town for lunch. After lunch we go across to the Savica waterfall - a good 15minute uphill hike to the waterfall amongst beautiful forest. Back from the waterfall there's a final stop in Bohinj, another stunningly beautiful lake. It was a fantastic day, seeing some truly beautiful scenery. You've got to be fairly mobile and fit to take it on - as there are a lot of hills.
