5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2012

Fantastic day trip, gorgeous place and tour guides were very informative and helpful, a must on your trip to do when in Switzerland.

4 star rating: Recommended November 2012

The place was stunning! Although we were left there alone with no tour guide to talk about the place. The rest of the group went up to mount titlis and picked us up on the way back. A little disappointing.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2011

Greeat tour-excellent guide.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2009

Actually went to Mt Titlis instead, which included a little time to see Engelberg. Engelberg wasn't anything special, but Mt Titlis was beautiful.

Unfortunately on the day we had booked bad weather prevented us from going to Engleberg. Instead we were taken to Mount Rigi for a train trip up the mountain and back down by cable car. We then went to spend a couple of hours in Lucerne. It was a good experience but we were looking forward to the village trip. This was a trip hastily put together in order not to let people down, so overall they did well.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2008

I did the independent trip, so I was able to see more than the people on the escorted trip.

3 star rating: Worth doing February 2013

Beautiful town, but be aware this is NOT a led tour. You ride to Engelberg with another tour going to Mt. Titlis. When you get off the bus, the guide points you towards the center of town (no map) and tells you a few things to do. If you don't have good navigating skills, it may be a challenge.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2012

Take the Titlis excursion, this one is not worth it!
