An excellent tour of a beautiful location. The views from the open air cable car and the peak of Stanserhorn are incredible. The trip to Stanserhorn is on back roads, showing you beautiful Swiss countryside and villages.Everything regard the tour itself worked smoothly, exactly as promised, and we had an excellent and information guide with us. The furnicular train is not impressively steep, but does take you through several small Swiss farms. The cable car is fantastic, particularly from the open air roof. At the top, the peak of Stanserhorn gives you fantastic views, both easy and difficult hiking options, and a revolving restaurant. The restaurant is really more of a cafeteria line, but the seating area does revolve and give you a nice view. A short train ride after Stanserhorn takes you back to Lucerne, where you have an hour or so to explore before rejoining the bus ride home. You should be aware that several tours share the same bus - tours visiting different peaks, tours going to Lucerne only, etc. - so there are several stops to let people on/off. This leaves you wondering what other people are seeing and why they chose the tours they chose, but we were quite happy with ours.

Trip included a scenic route to Lucerne, time to walk around the old section of town (there was more to see than you have time for but it gives you a chance to experience the town) and the railway plus cable car up near the top of Mt Stanserhorn. Enjoyed the outdoor experience of riding on top of the cable car up and down. Once up there is a nice restaurant with a view, time to eat lunch which was a little pricey but compared to Zurich prices it was about the same. There is a lookout area by the the restaurant. From there you are able to walk a path to get to the peak, that takes maybe 20 minutes, mostly uphill. Nice lookout on top. We had a lot of cloud cover on the late August day we went but patches of clear allowed some great views. Glad we went on this trip.

It was fun. The map handed out for Lucerne meeting place in reference to the train station was confusing. We were lost for a bit because we did not understand the train stop and the meeting place.


3 star rating: Worth doing

We were the only ones on the bus doing it and we're dropped off from another tour and given train tickets to get back to Lucerne after doing the railway and Cable car. The train station is only 500 mars from the end of the Funicular railway so it's not a big deal.We got back to Lucerne and had 2 hours to get to the pick up point for the same bus to pick us up.The views from the Stanserhorn on a nice day would be amazing.As it was a rainy day when we went the view disappeared at half way up. Nice restaurant up the top.
