An amazing day. Lovely cable cart rides to the top. We had a perfect day with views for miles. Lunch was spectacular and delicious. We had great fun in the snow. It would be good to start the tour earlier so you could have more time up there. A great way to spend New Years Day!

This was a wonderful trip. Lunch could have been a little more timely, but over all the guide was very knowledgeable and Mt. Pilatus was very beautiful. Coming down and seeing the entire town of Lucerne was breathtaking.
We were extremely disappointed with the tour in the fact that it was not actually a tour with a guide.We were picked up at the designated spot by a guide , taken to a shop where we had to wait 20minutes for people on another tour,taken to the mountain (10 minutes) and directed with coupons for lunch etc to go to the mountain by ourselves and then advised we had to walk down the winding street to catch a local bus back to Lucerne ..All this without a guide
I was expecting the 'horn blowers' like in the picture. The time there was too long.
What a damned Waste of Money:
You spend more time filling out paperwork and waivers than actually riding to the base of the mountain, which is only 10 minutes away by bus. Meal choice was lousy. Guide was late to pick-up, then didn't even drop us off back at the train station, but made us walk.! Got no info from guide on mountain, history, etc.
Very poor value. There was no guide for the trip and I was the sole traveller, others having given up when they heard it was not guided. I was given cable car tickets and a bus ticket to get me back to Lucerne.
Pilatus itself was OK but restricted due to considerable construction taking place.
Had I known all this, I would have gone to Titlis or Rigi. If you really want Pilatus, take public transport.
