This weather was very bad and we could not see the mountain or the great views. However that was not in your control. The boat and cogwheel portions were just great and the guide was very knowledgeable.
Wonderful trip and get your camera ready because the sights are magnificent. Get ready for the ride of your life in the tram including the big surprise moment! Train ride down is amazing, watch the elevation grade sigsn on the side of the tracks to see just how much of a slant your are facing.
This was a great tour. We enjoyed it, and the beautiful weather. Could see for miles. ONly wish we could of gotten out and take more pictures outside the bus.
It was an excellent tour despite the fact that it was a very rainy day and once at the top we could see nothing. The experience of going up and down Mt. Pilatus was worth doing. Lucerne is as lovely as people say and the boat ride on Lake Lucerne was very nice. The guide was very efficient and did an excellent job in coordinating the various types of activities involved in this tour. Liked the fact that we could be picked up at our hotel. It would have been great if we could have been returned to our hotel at the end of the tour.
Fantastic trip with knowledgeable guide. Would not have changed a thing.
Every bit worth the money. We did a lot in the whole day. The rain or fog did not dampen our spirits at all. Very well organized trip. Its a must see.
Amazing Trip... A must do. Would have liked to spend more time in Lucerne.
this excursion was the highlilte of our trip.it was excellent, except at the end we were let of the bus at thseir terminal and had no idea how to get back to our hotel, thanks to thse bus driver everything worked out,
We highly recommend this tour. The scenery was spectacular. The guide was terrific and very knowlegable. It was very well organized and the cable car and cogwheel were out of this world. Lake Lucerne was so beautiful.
A wonderful, wondeful full day. Tour was a bit rushed in Lucerne due to roadworks on the way which was a bit of a shame. However, Mt Pilatus was stunning and awesome. Heard the cows and bells and were lucky enough to see and hear a Swiss hornblower. The cablecars, railway and ferry trips added extra experiences to the day. You really must do this trip!!! A special highlight of our visit to Switzerland.
We took 4 differnet mountain tours,all of them were different,unfortunatly Mt Pilatus was covered in clouds.Still enjoyed the ride uo to it.
This trip was well worth the money. The guide was extremely professional. They stopped for picture opportunities and gave us a great historical account of the country as we traveled to and from Lucerne. I highly recommend this -- I've never seen such a beautiful panoramic view. Traveling by aerial cable, cogwheel and boat was a real treat!
If you have only one day to spare it is worth taking this trip..especially to Mount Pilatus. The visit to Lucern was a bit rushed but otherwise an exceptioanal tour. We could have stayed a little less time up on top fo the mountain as there is not much to do except eat and the food is quite pricey. I would have enjoyed a longer stay in Lucern. The guides were very friendly and professional. Beware of the hotel pick up policy. The pick up only applies if you are staying at that hotel stated. We stayed next door but were refused hotel pick up.
This was a perfect day trip combined with bus, gondola, cogwheel train, and a ferry ride. Definitely worth your time and money. Spectacular views from Mount Pilatus and on the way up to it. Lucerne is gorgeous, but the ferry ride makes it even better! Would highly recommend this trip to everyone!!!
This full day tour exceeded my expectations and it incorporates amazing cable car rides to the top of Mount Pilatus but also features the cog rail trip back down. The bus trip gives great views of Swiss scenery and there is a boat cruise and stop to visit Lausanne. Good bang for your buck!
