It was a nice comfortable drive from Zurich with guide/driver. He gave us a lot information about Switzeland during the ride. We have about 5 hours to explore Lucerne on our own. Nice small town with a lot of sightseeing.

Bus guide had to speak in two languages so spoke nonstop. Once in Lucerne too many people in tour group all herded into Harry’s watches. No one could hear. Bus guide explained where to meet in one language only. We left the city tour after 10 minutes as a few people were dominating the guide who was focused on getting one person to a restaurant. Again in two languages. (If have more than one language you should have two tour groups) at the end of a long day the bus was extremely late arriving. Would never recommend this tour

Excellent tour. Be prepare to walk. We did the walk on the back wall and it was pretty good. You must be fit since there is lots of stairs.

This was a wonderful day with plenty of time to explore Lucerne . The town is picture postcard material with lovely restaurants medieval history and the beautiful lake
I would not recommend this tour on a Sunday as the shops are closed and there is 6 hours to fill in without shopping but apart from that highly recommend this tour

Great day trip out of Zurich. Plenty of time for looking around, sightseeing, taking in the sights and shopping too. Enjoyed the visit to Lucerne and look forward to a return visit. The meeting spot for the return journey is convenient and easy to find near the train station. I recommend the day trip for those looking for opportunities to explore Switzerland.

Took this tour in December. Our guide Jorge gave commentary along the way in Spanish and English. Good story and he pointed out interesting spots as well as history. The first stop at the Lion Monument was very brief, but adequate. We were then dropped off at their offices in old town, which turns out are a series of watch and souvenir shops owned by a single company. There you can use the bathrooms without paying a fee. Then we were turned loose for 6 hours on our own. This is both good and bad - if you like a lot of time you can take short 1 hour or long 3 hour cruises on the lake and wander around, or you can get bored. We elected to head back to Zurich on own own by train rather than wait for the bus because the latter was our case, even after taking a one hour lake cruise. Check your vouchers because we had prepaid for the lake cruise but were not given the tickets at the starting point in Zurich which we should have, so Jorge needed to call back and then issue us tickets on location. If you go in December as we did and are looking for Christmas markets, don't settle for the little one in the train station. There is a much larger and more traditional market in the Franziskanerplatz just a few blocks away from the station. All in all a pleasant trip, but we found six hours to wander Lucerne on our own was too long.

What an absolute beauty this city is! It is a must see! Our guide was very knowledgeable and took great care of the group. We enjoyed having the day to explore and shop on our own as well. This tour is a nice mix of free time and a tour which educates you on the city.

Great day tour to Lucerne, You were left to explore Lucerne on your own and at your own pace, which was nice.
