We had a wonderful overnight stay on Mt Pilatus. We were very lucky as it started snowing again on the night we were there (it was not suppose to be snowing anymore in April). The hospitality of the staff from Mt Pilatus was great. Lunch, dinner and breakfast were provided and it was delicious. Highly recommended if you are visiting Switzerland. It was an unforgettable experience.

This tour is my trip of a lifetime. The arrangements made by Viator is as smooth as can be. The bus guide gentlemen speaks perfect English. Hotel Bellevue 6000 feet on top of Mt. Pilatus was clean, spacious, comfortable and warm. We were above the clouds with Luzern below us. We watched sunset and sunrise. The next day, the tour took us to Mt Titlis 10,000 ft above Luzern. We were standing at the same height as snow clad mountains around us. What a breathtaking view. The trip is every bit worth it.

We thought this was the highlight of our recent visit to Switzerland. The tour was very well organized and met our expectations. The tour guides we had over the two days were very informative. Our trip up and down Mt. Pilatus was wonderful and so scenic. We had good weather so we could see the gorgeous vistas. Our hotel room had a spectacular view of Lucerne Lake and the city and at night, it was clear enough to see all the lights. The weather came and went while we were there, some rain, some cloud but lots of clear as well. A very lovely dinner was served . Our second day on Mt. Titlis however, was not as good. The weather did not cooperate and weather is everything on the mountains. We did enjoy the visit just the same. Lots to experience on Mt. Titlis. We enjoyed the glacier caves. Being from Canada, snow was not a thrill for us as it was for many. Overall a wonderful two days experience. Our one comment to the tour company, would be a slight change in the itinerary on Pilatus. We were told to descend Pilatus via the cable cars and take a bus (ticket was provided) back to Lucerne to meet the tour bus for our trip to Mt. Titlis. However, we decided to descend via the cog railway (and our ascent ticket allowed us to do this)and then took the train back to Lucerne. We found this added to our experience. So we would recommend that the train ticket be provided instead of the bus ticket.

We loved it. Great views and good hotel on Mt Pilatus. Our guide on second day, Valerie, was exceptional. She was extremely helpful and knew a lot about Switzerland. Very glad we took this tour:)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2012

Excellent value for money. Fantastic. I would advise that you confirm100% with guide for pick-up the next day. We spend money on going into Lucerne, but the bus went back to Pilatus. Little bit confusing.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

We stayed a night in Mt Pilatus. It was worth the money and the service was very good. Then we headed on to Mt Titlis. Everything was well planned and we were well taken care of.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2014

The tour was conducted by the tour company in Zurich and they did a great job. My mum and I had an amazing time staying on the top of Mt. Pilatus, the air was so fresh and our view was breathtaking. Because we stayed the night, we were able to see the mountain later at night when most of the tourists had departed, otherwise it can get quite crowded in the general area. The three course dinner was fantastic as well with great service staff. Breakfast was also excellent. The trip down from the mountain would have been better if we could ride the steep train instead of the cable cart. We had to take the bus from the bottom of the mountain to the rail station and the walk between the bottom of the mountain and the bus station was actually quite a walk so make sure you don't have heavy luggage with you. Mt. Titlis was amazing but would have preferred if Viator told us to dress appropriately for the snow that we were not expecting during even during summer time (apparently it snows all year round, so dress appropriately to actually do the activities which are outdoors). Overall, we had an amazing time visiting the mountains and was well worth the expensive tour money that we paid.
