What You Can Expect
On arrival in Lucerne, embark on a short sightseeing tour with your knowledgeable guide; see impressive monuments like Chapel Bridge and the Lion Monument and gain fascinating insight into the city’s rich historical heritage. Spend some leisurely time exploring the Old Town, an area thronged with ancient relics.
See the 14th-century town walls and then re-join the coach for the short and scenic journey to Stans, home to a recently restored 19th-century funicular railway. Experience an enchanting ride through flowering meadows and swooping valleys and disembark at the train station to explore the region independently.
On your guide’s recommendation, conquer your fear and climb aboard the CabriO, an open-top aerial cable car that affords stunning views of the surrounding Alpine panorama. Ascend to the lofty summit of Mount Stanserhorn and relish staggering views as you climb to a height of 6,230 feet (1,900 meters).
Scour the horizon for 10 lakes and more than 62 miles (100 km) of Swiss Alps mountain range before taking a short hike to Marmot Park, an idyllic nature reserve in which animals thrive in their natural environment. Opt to enjoy a unique dining experience in the mountaintop’s rotating restaurant (own expense) and then return to Stans to meet your guide.
Take the train back to Lucerne and, after enjoying some additional free time in the charming city, board your return coach to Zurich.
It was a wonderful experience. everyone should do it.
Magnifigenct views oohed and aaded all the way quite overwhelming , low cloud on the way up but what a surprise when the cloud lifted
The view was breathtaking! Our driver was more than helpful and very polite! worth every penny!
Fantastic tour. Very good commentary. Wonderful scenery. Aerial cable car amazing; the first time we've been on one with an open top. Incredible views. The map for rejoining the tour could have been a lot better.
This tour was amazing!
We had a great time. Our kids had tons of fun and they enjoyed the Funiculur Railway and the CABRIO CABLE car up to Stanserhorn. Overall it was good trip. Good to have for a day.
This was one of the highlights of our vacation. We ended our Rhine cruise with 2 additional nights in Zurich and opted to take this day trip to Lucerne and Stanserhorn. As it turned out, there were only 10 people on this tour this date and it was more like a private your. The guide was great, and because we weren't in a big bus, she spent extra time in Lucerne, which we all enjoyed and appreciated. The highlight of this tour, however, was the Cabrio. The view of the mountains, lakes and towns from on top of the cable car were outstanding, and there was ample time at the top of the mountain to appreciate it.
We were only 4 persons going on this tour and Robert (our guide) explained how the trip would be (In the same bus there was another group doing the Titlis tour) . He explained that a portion of the tour would be without him and for the Cabrio portion he gave us a paper with all the instructions including where to meet him in Lucerne after the ride down from the Cabrio Cable car. The tour started with some explanation about Zurich then we did a first stop to take pictures of the mountain. After that we headed to the Lion monument and did a picture pose there , of course along the trip we got information related to Lucerne. 3rd stop was in Lucerne where we had about 1 hour and 1/2 of free time - so we went to visit the Chapel bridge and had a bite. Next the Bus dropped us at the Stanserhorn Station where we took the funiclar to the Cabrio cable car . The whole thing from bottom to top takes around 40 minutes. Once we reached the summit the view was even more amazing and breathtaking . The paper we had indicated to 2 different times to go down and which train to take back to Lucerne (tickets included) . All the tour was very nice and Robert the tour guide was amazing; he even gave us his personal phone number just in case we had an emergency. Highly recommended !

Very enjoyable time going up Stanserhorn. The view is great as well as the Funicular Railway and Cable car were fun to ride. The tour of Lucerne allowed you to see all of the high points of Lucerne and some free time to explore on your own. We recommend this tour
Excellent day and our tour guide Franz was very knowledgeable and informative. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get out of the city and see so much in one day!
