Mind blowing, the most amazing pictures we have from the trip, were taken on this tour. This was a highly organised and adventurous trip. The entire tour lasted about 9 hours, just as it mentions in the description. The details of the trip are true to their description. It was a combination of bus, cable car, cogwheel train, boat and then bus back to Zurich again. My husband and I did not imagine Mt Rigi would be so breath-taking. Everything we did thereafter, we compared with this trip. Even in the winter there was so much sunshine once we reached the peak. Lovely restaurants and cafes for snacks as you climb up the mountain, and there was enough time to take a walk, get a bite and take lots of pictures before departing for the boat.

This excursion was the best part of our holiday to zurich. The views from mount rigi are breath taking and looking at all the swiss houses on the way to it was magical. definitely worth the money. make sure you pick a day that is supposed to have clear weather for clear views

For folks who want to explore on their own this is a perfect trip. We were provided all the instructions and meeting points and them basically spend the day exploring Rigi and Lucerne on our own

The tour was wonderful. We received clear, understandable instructions on where to meet our tour leader. I felt that we got to spend time on our own exploring the sights, which was nice. I might have spent less time on Mt Rigi so I could spend more time touring Lucerne. Very nice tour.

Me and my wife had a wonderful experience with this trip. A combination of all 3 modes of transport road,rail and water and was well organised. Our guides Andy and Robert were informative and friendly. The alps were amazing and also the boat ride to Lucerne with free time to spend at both places was great.

Would wouldn't want to do this tour? Taking the cog wheel train high above the clouds that hung over the city of Zurich until we reached the top and the sun was out and the views spectacular. Had a nice lunch on top and took the Red train down the other other side to Vitznau to take a boat to Lucerne, boat took 1 hour and the views were so beautiful. Had free time in Lucerne which was so very nice. The one surprise was once the guide took us to the train we were on our own all day, I was a little worried at first but it turned out just fine. I thing that should have been mentioned in the trip information.

Fantastic tour! Breathtaking landscapes, very nice guide and perfect atmosphere. A real aventure from the city center of Zurich to the top of the mountain in the ice-grotto! Lucerne is also beautiful, we found some nice and typical little shops there. Thanks to our guide! Really recommend the tour to everyone wants to escape and take a break.

Me and my wife were on our honeymoon, so we wanted to go somewhere we could relax and enjoy the wonders of nature, this trip gave us everything we could ask for! The day started with the perfect weather, nice sunshine with cool breeze. The tour guide from The Best of Switzerland tours, Andy, was very friendly and polite. So moving on, we took the coach ride all the way to the start of the cogwheel train station.The Blue cogwheel train up to Mount Rigi was very nice, lets you sit back, relax and enjoy the very scenic views as you make your way up to Rigi. Once at the top, the majestic views of the Swiss Alps awaits you, we were so in awe of the beautiful Swiss alps. At the top of Mount Rigi there's like a small cafe where u can get your coffee and snacks. After an hour or so at the top, we ascend back down with the Red cogwheel train and finally we took the boat and make our way back to Lucerne, the boat ride was great as well. Overall this trip is very well worth it, we enjoyed ourselves and its a part of our honeymoon we would never forget!

from being picked up on time at our hotel and being able to bag the front seats to being dropped off at the coach station 10 hours later we had a wonderful day. it was my 50th birthday and going up a mountain in the swiss alps was just the way to spend it. our rep was very informative and friendly.we arrived at the cable car and it set off after just a few minutes. then on up to the summit. oh my what can you say about the views. breathtaking / stunning/fabulous etc. we have never been anywhere like it before. we didn't stay as long as the tour guide suggested as it was a very cold and windy day up there, but we caught the train back down and got on an earlier boat with no problems. the journey down to lucerne was just lovely complimented a tasty glass of birthday wine.the sights of lucerne more than lived up to our expectations and we met the coach at the arranged meeting point. it's a pity it was a sunday as most of the shops were shut, but it didn't spoil a very memorable special birthday. thankyou from diane and eddie

A great day - the trip provided a variety of activities, the coach, the gondola, cog wheel train, and boat. The highlight was sledging in the beautiful Alps. Would recommend the trip to all that enjoy adventures.
