After this exciting Swiss winter experience, conclude your two-day adventure with a scenic drive back to Lucerne and then on to Zurich.
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.
