All went well. We were taken by bus to the gondola ride and our guide was very efficient in making sure we all knew what we had to do. Once up on the mountain we were given information about how to fill in our time and when to be back at the meeting point for the train trip down the mountain. Everything went smoothly. Our boat trip back to Lucerne was really enjoyable as well. Despite the weather not being kind to us, we had a very enjoyable day.
Excellent, really enjoyed every aspect of the trip. It was expensive but well worth the money. Even though we went in October the weather was warm and visibility was good. The scenery from the top of the mountain was breathtaking.
Wow ! what a superb day out, fully recommend this day trip, it was just amazing.
Very good tour. Monica, our guide, was very informative! Beautiful day above the clouds on Mt. Pilatus via a cog railway! Nice restaurant with German style buffet! Good food, great chance to hike with beaut
I full camera shots of snow covered Alps! Highly recommend!
It was a fun trip. The tour guide was fantastic and a lot of fun to talk to. Unfortunately he could not do anything about the big cloud of rain that covered the mountain that day.
Even with fog obstructing our view, we still had a great time. Our guide Monica was excellent! And the sit down restaurant in the Hotel Klum had fantastic food and great service.
We had a great time! even though it was REALLY foggy, the trip was a blast. Worth the money, bus ride, tram to top, then cogwheel train back. Then boat ride for 1 hour to Lucerne! Grab this tour if your in Lucerne/Zurich
I really enjoyed this all day tour. Beautiful views from Mt. Pilatus.
This was our only tour that we had booked when visiting Lucerne, we thought it would be great to see this attraction, having never been to Lucerne. We met our guide at the information center and I'm sorry to say, I cant remember her name, but she was very very good, very friendly and was full of knowledge on what we would be seeing today. On the bus we went to where we would be catching the cable car to most of the way to the top of Mt. Pilatus. We loved the cable car ride, seeing the lush green fields below and was fun hearing those cow bells which one associates with Switzerland. We arrived to where we would be getting onto the new 'Dragon car' this sounded so exciting to us, took some photos, always taking photos, this ride was amazing, loved it even though my partner was holding on to the pole with clenched hands. The view from the top of this Mt. Pilatus was something to behold, the stunning views of these high mountains this just made our day. The clouds were rolling in on one side but the other side was so clear, great for photo taking. My partner stayed behind to have a look through the shop, getting some souvenirs while i ventured out along the walkways up to the lookout area, We were there for a good 1 1/2 hours, there are pathways for the more adventureous to take, it was just great to sit back and to take in the magnificent view. We would highly recommend this tour to all who visit Lucerne. Our stay in Lucerne was something else, loved it all and yes, we would love to come back again one day.
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!
