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:)

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.

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.

Awesome, we loved everything we experienced. The gondola to Mt Pilatus was so inspiring, the Mt pilatus hotel and views were excellent. The food delicious especially the local cheese. 1/2 glass champagne at the hotel restaurant at $12 each our only complaint.
Lucerne adorable, and Mt Titus such fun, loved the sky walk. Our guide Claire was such a great lady and the bus drivers great too.

3 star rating: Worth doing

Mt. Pilatus portion including the overnight at the Hotel was great, however the combination leaves a lot to be desired. Mt. Titlis was a waste of money.
Would give 5 stars for a Mt.Pilatus with hotel stay as a stand alone Tour.

Tour was ok. However a toll free number for viator is must. You should also inform that how many remaining passengers left for booking. In my case I was only one member who stayed at pilatus. Even guide did not stayed back with me. I was asked to return till lucern alone next day. I did it but thought I wasted money by booking through viator .i could have booked directly with agency would have given more choice and control and clarity of the arrangements.

Tour was good! Tour guides were great but lots of wasted time waiting for people and revisiting same places to pick people up. That was probably due to the organization of it all and not the guides fault. Information regarding final details of tour not emailed by viator til night before.

Not worth taking the 2 Days Trip. Enjoy both mountains separately. The agency should advise in advance about the weather fcast: there is no sense in staying overnight if it is so foggy that you cannot see 2metres in front of you.

The views at Mt Pilatus and Mt Titlis were awesome and staying on top of Mt Pilatus was wonderful indeed. However, my biggest disappointment was that this tour wasn't a tour at all! Only three people stayed overnight at Mt Pilatus and we all felt that we were just transported to Mt Pilatus and left there on our own. The following day we had to make our own way down the mountain and walk to a bus stop in order to catch a public bus to Luzern where the "tour" apparently continues to Mt Titlis. Although we were given directions to find the bus stop we gave ourselves time in case we get lost so we left Mt Pilatus at 930am. Little did we know that the "tour" bus from Luzern stopped via Mt Pilatus at 1pm to drop off other tourists. WE could have waited for them at 1pm at Mt Pilatus! It was a frustratingly waste of 3.5hrs which we could have used to spend more time at Mt Pilatus. Overall this "tour" was just a bus ride from Zurich to Mt Pilatus and another bus ride from Luzern to Mt Titlis then back to Zurich.

The locations are amazing but you shopuld do this trip yourself - un guided as that is pretty much what you end up doing. You go on a bus with a nice guide- who departs at the hotel at Mt Pilatus. You are then given train tickets to validate the next day where you get yourself down from Mt Pilatus- .8km walk with bags etc catch what you hope is the right train, then get off and go and a new tour for that day. This takes about 2hrs; plus leaving 30min to ensure your there on time so about 2.5hr to 3hrs as your not to sure where your going and on what bus etc. The next tour starts and the FIRST PLACE it stops is at the bottom of MT PILATUS to drop the nect over nighters of! This was very gutting as I could have had more time on the MT and been picked up from there with a lot less stress and luggage lugging! The actual things you do are amazing but this was very disappointing; I should have brought the tickets and found the bus myself as that is what acturally happened. It would be a much better '"TOUR"' if you were meet at the bottom of the Mt pilatus.
Thanks :-(
