There was confusion over the booking of this trip so we ended up going on the chocolate cheese and mountain trip to Appenzell. This trip was excellent and the guide was brilliant. She knew so much about the local area which made it extremely interesting and enjoyable. I would highly reccommend this trip to anyone visiting Switzerland.
This was a beautiful day trip with the most amazing scenery i have ever seen. It was a shame that it was spoilt by rude people that can't get back to the bus at the time that the guide had told us. A lot of the day was wasted sitting on the bus waiting for people that cant tell the time. The tour guide was really lovely but i think she could have been a little tougher on the people that continually got back to the bus late
Best trip ever....Lucerne is very nice, we stayed only 45 min. However, when you arrive to Engelberg, it is just heaven...
We also highly recommend this tour and having the choice of going up the mountain just enjoying Engelberg is a real plus. Once again guide and driver were excellent.
We had a fantastic day trip through Lucerne where we had a good amount of time to tour around (although we could have spent days) and then went to Engleberg where is gently snowed; a condition we had never experienced before.
The tour guides were timely and friendly and informative.
I'd recommend you do this trip.
The tour was great and we had an amazing experience travelling with Viator and their local operator (Tours of Switzerland), me and my family appreciate a lot, very well organized and ponctual. I would definitely recommend to my friends.
it was a lovely trip,hopefully i will do it again soon, I love Zurich
Organized and we were allowed sufficient time for each place we went.
Lucerne was nice, and so was the trip to Engleberg. However, There's nothing much to do in Engelberg, unless you are willing to tale a lengthy stroll of three hours on your own. Monastry is closed, and Cheese Factory is only an eye wash. Scenery is very beautiful. Guide was quite knowledgeable, but the crowd (full of bus load) was too much to handle! That made the driver temperamental.
The bus depot is right behind the main train station easy to find and well organize. The bus was in excellent condition and the tour guide spoke English and Spanish although he was very youing but very prodessional, polite with very good overaall knowledge. Lucerne is a beautiful city with many things to see the time allowed was average it would have been better if we had some more time. Engelberg was an extremely beautiful village with nice food. Although the weather was terrible but the overall experience was very good.
Excellent trip through picturesque countryside and alpine scenery. I extended my tour to include a cable car to Mount Titlis for fun in the snow. Although expensive at 156 Swiss francs for the entire day, it was well worth it.
