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!
This was a great tour and the tour guide was very nice and full of information.
Excellent value for money. Very good guides, very helpful and informative
My family and I loved this tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable about what we saw and made it very interesting and understandable. Although we speak English, she did an excellent job translating what we saw and did into Spanish. We enjoyed all of the modes of transportation this tour included. The rides up and down the mountain were our favorite. Everything was so green and lush, and we got some wonderful pictures of the views of Lucerne and the mountains. Unfortunately, it was very cloudy at the top, but we were still able to hike the short trails and explore the area. The cruise on the lake was a relaxing end to our excursion. You will use up every moment of time you spend in Lucerne. It is a beautiful city with a lot of things to see. I would highly recommend this tour.
The only way this excursion could have been better would be for a little more time on Mt. Pilatus. Fantastic day!
Fantastic day trip and knowledgeable guide!!! The views from Mt Pilatus were worth the scary cable car trip to the top. Luckily there were no clouds to obstruct the view. Beautiful boat trip back to Lucerne.
Worth every cent!! Going up Mt Pilatus you can not prepare your self for how amazing it is from the top. View or alps breath taking. When you stop in Lucerne have a cake at the little bakery near the meeting point great cakes and cheap. The Lion momunent was unreal didnt expect it to be so big and detailed. Wonderful day out!!
