This was such a great day. Started off with a cruise on Lake Lucerne. The weather was perfect. So many beautiful sites along the way to the base of Mt. Rigi. Rode the cogwheel car to the top of the mountain. It was absolutely breathtaking up there. We brought a picnic lunch and stopped in the little store they had up top and got a bottle of wine to enjoy with our picnic. Lots of grassy areas and benches to relax up there. Took lots of photos of the beautiful sites. Saw people paragliding from the top. Rode the cogwheel back down a few stops to where the tram was. Tram ride was great with the exception of them cramming too many people in at once. Luckily I was able to be on the outside in order to take pictures. Once you get to the bottom you have to walk a ways to get the boat back. We enjoyed all the different looking houses and we saw some goats in a field that had bells on. Was a magnificent day with my hubby. Would highly recommend it.
Beautiful views from the top! Very easy to navigate independently and I appreciated the freedom to leave when I pleased!
A little confusing at first since the ticket booth at the boat gate had no idea what we were talking about. We thought we needed vouchers for each leg of the trip. Go directly onto the boat and just board the other different transports. They recognize the one vouchers that you print on the website. It appears you can customize it any way you want. Full and half day tours were the same price. When we arrived early for our afternoon half day, the boat conductor let us board without questions....same for all the other rides. Even if it appears a little overcast the clouds go in and out and you always get a spectacular view. Wonderful boat ride and the train ride up was a great experience. The excursion was more than we ever expected!
When I received the booking confirmation for the full day tour option I was dismayed at not receiving the travel timetables for the different modes of transport remember this is not a 'guided tour', more of a round-trip travel booking. The point of wanting the timetable is so as to understand when the cogwheel train departs and the different stops it makes on its way up the mountain, and what times the cable car departs. The promised timetable was not, unfortunately, provided. Nor was it clear which ferry stop we had to get off at for the cogwheel train. HOWEVER, Swiss efficiency means that a print-out of our voucher was accepted on the ferry, train and cable car despite being managed by different operators. The day of the tour was unbelievably sunny and the sky was clear. The ferry ride about 30 minutes was great. I can't remember the correct stop for the cogwheel train, but just ask one of the ferry staff and they'll let you know. The train ride was simply breathtaking. We went right up to the top. Great respect for the hikers who were legging it up the mountain - many of them a ripe old age and their fitness made me feel suddenly self-conscious about all my extra middle-age weight!!! After an hour or two at the top we took the train back down a few stops to where the cable car is. You'll recognise it because its quite built up not like the other stops filled with quaint and often traditional styled cottages. If you're ever unsure, just ask the staff/conductor and they'll set you straight on which stop to get off at. Remember - take care which train you take down from the very top as there are 2 seperate routes down the mountain leading to 2 very different end destinations. We took the slow easy stroll down to the station just before the one at the top and from there you can better see where the train lines seperate. The cable car ride down was terrific but, and I cannot stress this enough, the cogwheel train up was absolutely breathtaking. Do your darndest to get a seat by the window if you're looking up towards the top of the mountain then choose the left side of the carriage. The picture opportunity is unsurpassed and again - the trip up is absolutely amazing. Not having a guide was no trouble at all as the different operators are all professional and well informed so can direct if you are unsure of anything. Highly recommend this.
Perfect way to see the best of Lake Lucerne and Mount Rigi. Had a fantastic day. Go at your own pace. Would do it again.
Beautiful Lake Lucerne cruise on an old paddle boat was so fun and the crew was so nice! We loved seeing Mount Rigi. Great way to spend our day!!!
The departure time for the boat from Luzern to Vitznau had changed ... I was lucky to be early otherwise I had missed the boat!
The trip is fantastic. We took the half day option and it was more than enough. You just have to know the steps and the time table exactly before you start your tour as thee won't be a tour guide but people there are helpful. I do recommend it for all visitors of Switzerland. Amuzing.
This was a lovely half-day excursion. We enjoyed the opportunity to go into the alps and see the wonderful views from Mt. Rigi at our own pace.
