The tour was excellent, with the cable car rides to the top of Mt Pilatus, the cog train descent, and then the boat trip back to Lucerne. All good experiences, magnificent views, and a great day all round.
This full day trip was spectacular and amazing. Definitely worth the money. Do this! You will not regret it. A bus ride to the gondola, up the mountain, lots of time to enjoy the views, a cog train down, and then a boat ride across the lake. I am so glad we did this and booked it ahead of time from home.
Travelling up to Mount Pilatus was a fun experience. LOVED the gondola ride. Unfortunately it was a foggy day so we didn't see much until the end of the tour when the fog lifted. The boat cruise of Lake Lucerne was a lovely ending to a great day.
This tour gave us the opportunity to see some awesome views in a beautiful country.
enjoyed the boat ride and funicular,,,,but some of the details need to be tightened up for us old gulys......we missed the gondola because we did not know where to hook up.....however the boat guys and funicular folk took mercy on us and we met the group at the top....so got two boat ride and funicular trips. inadevertently.
al in all a great experience in spite of pilot error.
Great way to see the area. Tour guide was very good and keep everyone informed. Also he kept everyone right on time. Planing this on your own is not worth the trouble, when you can take a tour like this totally care free.
Fantastic ride up in Inthe cable cars to the top. The guide was great, unfortunately people didn't pay attention and missed the last cable car up. Additionally there were some girls on the tour that had wanted to do the toboggan ride, but didn't tell the guide until on the last cable car which was too late toboggan is on the second stop, and if you go back down you would have to pay another ticket to get back up to the top. The guide was able to ask a favour and got them to go back down and up at no extra cost which was nice. Lots of free time at the top to explore the mountain and get some great pictures. The boat cruise was nice and relaxing, interesting to watch as you could see the wheels from the inside! Would highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful tour! Got to ride the gondolas as well as the cog railway. The tour around Lake Lucerne was awesome! This was one of the highlights of our whole Europe trip!
The tour was amazing--plenty of time for exploring at the top of the mountain--even on a cloudy day the views were spectacular. Then the lake cruise after coming down together with the gondola ride up and cogwheel train down, was well worth the expense!
Excellent tour, very much worth the money. Unfortunately, it rained the day we went and therefore missed many of the fantastic views. Overall though we enjoyed this tour and would do it again...hoping for better weather.
Outstanding excursion. The views are spectacular. Although the train may appear to be scary, it really was a nice ride down the mountain.
Great tour with lots to do and see. The views were amazing - just like the pics online. The guide Antke I think that's the right spelling was very good. I would highly recommend it
Awesome trip, great vistas, nice ride up in the gondola and down via cog wheel train. Cruise on the lake was fun too!
Great way to spend an afternoon. Great thrill to venture to the top of Mt Pilatus and experience the unbelievable views from 7000 feet.
You cannot go to Lucerne and not do this tour.
JUST EXCELLENT AND MET OUR EXPECTATIONS AND MORE. QUITE SPECTACULOUS.
Great Experience! There was no rush. The trip up was broken up by a stop at a half-way point for pictures and the view. We had plenty of time at the top to eat lunch and explore the Dragon Caves. There happened to be some paragliders jumping off the side of the mountain on the day we were there. The trip down was an opportunity to see Lake Lucerne and take pictures. Our boat ride back to Lucerne was a nice change from being on top of Mount Pilatus. Highly recommend!
I absolutely loved this tour and it was worth every cent. We didn't have much time in Lucerne so we felt that it would be great to spend half a day experiencing the breathtaking views. Th entire process was smooth and painless. We met at the tourist centre in Lucerne station before catching a bus to the bottom of the mountain. We then got tickets for our cable cart given to us and once we were on, the views we incredible. It was breathtaking to leave the city views behind as you approach the top of the mountain. On the top of the mountain you are given some time to look around and take pictures before you meet at the meeting point. Hen you take the famous train back down the mountain all the way to the ferry. The views during the entire tour were incredible and we captured so many awesome photos and saw amazing views. I highly recommend it and it is definitely value for money.
Amazing ride going up and down the mountain. Was able to spend ample time on top.
Great trip to Mount Pilatus. Gondola, Cogwheel and boat ride were amazing. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lucerne.
Great tour, very much enjoyed it and was worth the price! Got to view Lucerne from the top of Pilatus and the lake by boat. Great way to spend a day with beautiful sights all around!
