5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

Very good!

4 star rating: Recommended September 2008

We were traveling with another couple and had a really great day in Lucerne. The city was beautiful and we had the whole afternoon to explore after the folk show.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2013

We forfeited this trip entirely because we had already been to Lucerne the day before. The breaking point also was because the round trip taxi fare to the tour starting point was 61 swiss francs, which was totally ridiculous. Advise viator (gray line) to pick up from Steigenberger Hotel in future, as taxi fares from there are too great to justify the tour cost.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2010

This is one I would take a pass on. The Folklore show was entertaining but that's all the trip is good for. There was no tour of the city before hand, as we were just dropped off due to the fact the bus had folks on it that were going to Titilus Mountain. Food was adequate, show at times bizarre, and to have to hang around for four hours after the show was a total waste of time. Time that could have been used for other sightseeing events. If you must see Lucerne, do a 1/2 day trip, not a full day.

The show was nice until the fake cow came out. Then they did the chicken dance, or whatever it is called. I thought it went downhill from there, but the rest was really nice. I liked the alpenhorns, the singing saw, and the broom dance. The flag throwing was nice also. Just be prepared that they may call you up to participate.

Enjoyed the bus trip to Lucerne. The scenery is spectacular and is definitely worth it. Not sure about the folklore lunch - the food was adequate, tasty and served promptly, but there are numerous similar restaurants nearby where I would expect that competition ensures a similar quality. The folklore show was at times quite corny. We had about 3 hours in Lucerne afterwards for exploring alone. I do consider this trip to be good value for the money paid and the convenience of a full day's outing.
