This day trip was amazing. Slight issue with the complimentary hotel pick up, however that did not ruin the rest of the trip. The top of Mount rigi was beautiful and definitely something not to miss.

The tour is pretty much 'DIY' except the briefing and dropping you off and picking you up in downtown Lucerne.
Bus ride form Zurich to Lucerne is breathtaking. You will see history and outstanding natural beauty. Rigi itself has heavenly view from the top - cant express in words. Lake Lucerne boat ride is lovely.

Overall, its very good value for the money you pay and the experience is amazing.

Our tour to Mount Rigi and Lucerne was fantastic. It far exceeded our expectations. The views from the top of Mount Rigi were truly breath taking. The weather was clear and we had exquisite views. It was hard to imagine that there was some snow on the top and yet you could wear a t-shirt. We took the cogwheel train all the way up from Goldau and travelled down to Vichnau. At Vichnau, we boarded a boat to Lucerne. This is the most picturesque place I have ever visited. This is one trip we won't soon forget.

What an beautiful trip. A beautiful view around every corner. We had magnificent weather. A cloudless sky, with some haze. The cable car was under maintain so we took the cable car the whole way to the top. It is quite easy to be independent as timetable is very clear.

Perfect day trip that gives a true taste of Switzerland. The four different types of 'rides' (bus, cable car, cog-wheel train, and boat) along with hiking on foot make this a tremendous tour.
Highly recommended.

This was a fantastic way to spend the day. We started with a scenic drive and ended up at the base of Mt. Rigi. We then took a cable car part way up the summit and then boarded a Cog Wheel train to the summit. Spend some time on the mountain as it was a warm clear day. Our guide Monika, couldn't have been more helpful with our questions. You then take the train back down to board your boat for a scenic ride to Lucerne. We were able to spend a few ours in beautiful Lucerne before being bussed by to Zurich. THANKS to Monika who made our day and group feel special!

This tour was well organised- we just turned up- they had all tickets and schedules organised. The bus and guide took us to a departure point and we were left to our own devices for the day but provided with all the tickets and timetables. Was a really good mountain to see because no clouds

We love Mt Rigi and got the opportunity to experience the snow. Unfortunately we went on 1st May so most of the shops in Lucerne were closed.

However, we do enjoy this trip and the scenery is breathtaking.

The Best Tour of our Trip! Mt.Rigi is the best mountain to visit out of Zurich. Your train actually takes you through the clouds literally. Plenty of free time of Rigi to explore and munch. The Guide was very sweet , knowledgeable and spoke good English. A sweet ride around Lucerne.

I learn so much from your tours! We had a great experience in France last year with your company and an awesome trip this summer in Switzerland. I was the coordinator for my relatives as we explored our roots in Switzerland and Viator helped me to make it a successful journey. Everyone wanted more trips planned and I was not successful in Interlaken to schedule them. Plan more for that part of Switzerland is my only suggestion. Guides are very knowledgeable and languages are not a problem. Keep up the great work and the reasonable prices.
