Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
You'll warm up with a guided tour of Lucerne's highlights before taking the cable car up to the top of towering Mt Pilatus. Savor a hearty lunch of Swiss staples as you take in views of the snow-covered Alps that seem like something out of a fairy tale.
What You Can Expect
Travel onward to Kriens and climb aboard a panoramic aerial cable car for a ride that ascends to 7,000 feet (2,132 meters) above sea level. Absorb the unique atmosphere of Mount Pilatus, a mythical paradise shrouded in legend and history; hear colorful tales of the dragons reputed to have lived on the mountain, and then take the serpentine Dragon Path to enjoy more stunning Alpine views.
Feast on a traditional Swiss lunch in a local restaurant (see the Itinerary section for a sample menu) and descend the mountain on the cable car. Rejoin your coach transfer and relax during the scenic journey back to Zurich, where the tour concludes.
Between late October and mid-November the aerial cable car is under maintenance. In this case you will travel up and down Mt. Pilatus by cogwheel train.

Excellent tour guide....
This tour is amazing the view from the top is unique. The only thing missing was on the lift. During our time there the aerial cableway was closed but the cogwheel railway is not bad! The meal included is not really good, the drinks are not included! But just the experience at the top and the small tour to Luzerne really worths it!!!
A perfectly organized day that exceeded our expectations.
Wonderful tour! Our guide was very kind and knowledgeable. I recommend this tour as a quick way to see Lucerne and some pretty countryside as well as Mt. Pilatus. The cable car was closed but we took the cogwheel and saw the beautiful mountain side!
Professional and patient tour guide.
Good food and friendly staffs in restaurant at top of Mt Pilatus. We also enjoyed our snowboard.

The tour was great and almost worth the cost. I got free upgrade to Mt Titalus tour as I was the only one who booked this. The tour guide was amazingly polite and knew a lot. The tour begins at Zurich so you get snip it's of things along your journey. The drive by itself is amazing and beautiful.
Lucern is beautiful and fun to wonder around. Mt. Pilatus was beautiful!
The tour was everything that we wanted in a day trip - prompt departure, clean coach, knowledgeable guide. Our only suggestion would be to allow more time in Lucerne.
