What You Can Expect
Cruise past impressive monuments like the Baroque Jesuit Church and Chapel Bridge while listening to interesting narration from your erudite guide. Receive insightful recommendations on where to explore during your segment of free time and then disembark the coach to stroll the quaint city streets independently.
Wile away the hours in one of Lucerne’s many charismatic cafés; famed for its thriving café culture, the city is the perfect place to kick back with an aromatic beverage and traditional Swiss lunch (own expense).
At a time that suits your schedule, head down to the shores of Lake Lucerne to redeem your complimentary cruise ticket. Climb aboard a modern boat and listen to interesting audio commentary as you explore the shimmering surface of Lake Lucerne.
Stroll around the ancient city center to see historical relics like the 14th-century Musegg Wall, or browse the artistic exhibition within the Richard Wagner Museum.
At a prearranged time, reconvene with your guide and group and relax during the return journey to Zurich.
Our day in Lucerne was great! The boat ride was informative and nice. The views and countryside going to Lucerne was spectacular.
Just a short motor coach ride away from Zurich, Lucerne is a MUST SEE while in Switzerland. So much history, the town has a village atmosphere, with many small shops, restaurants, and historic places.
Go see the Lion of Lucerne monument, the Church of St Leodegar, and the covered wooden chapel bridge that crosses the Reuss River in the heart of Lucerne. Also, take a cruise on Lake Lucerne that lasts about an hour. All in all, a nice trip that only took about 6 hours from starting point in Zurich and back.
This is an excellent tour and Lucerne is a very beautiful old town not to be missed. The boat ride was amazing as well. The tour guide was very good. Highly recommended
Well organized tour director. Very clear information.
It a very good tour, really enjoyed it and like the 6 hrs to roam around the town on our own.
Excellet trip. Free time in lucerne was ample to see the place in relaxed way. Cruise was excellent.
Tour was run by Best of Switzerland tours. They combined several tours that day, dropped us off for free time in Lucerne with vague directions and a voucher for the lake cruise. Would have loved the lake cruise more if weather had not been rainy and we had almost no visibility of the Alps. Lucerne is a charming, scenic destination, and we are glad to have visited. Tour guide was meh.
A very enjoyable trip, combined with 2 other groups going to the mountains. The guide continued with the group going to the mountains, so there was over 6 hours in Lucerne as an independent traveller. The trip on the lake was lovely, an hour well spent. I felt that the 6 hours were a bit too long, but the time was needed by the other groups to complete their tour. Overall, I enjoyed the trip.

food and beverage on board was terrible for the price we had to pay. Cruise itself was ok
The tour operators were professional and punctual. Unfortunately the weather was not that cooperative.
Overall barring the weather it was a great visit.
