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.

The trip was very smooth as all of the officers were known to our printed Viator vouchers. The boat trip was excellent and we enjoyed the beautiful very much along the Luzern Lake. There was snowing heavily when we were going up to Rigi. The snowing view thru out the train window was absolutely enjoyable in another way! At the Rigi Kulm, there was still snowing and we could not view the stunning paronama view of the beautiful Luzern lake. But, we were still enjoying the snow flakes while doing the snow-hiking around the mountain peak! There was unfortunate that we could not make the cable car trip down due to the cable car service was under maintenance. Anyhow, we made the return train back and re-boarding the boat back to Lucerne jetty. Absolutely recommended and worthy to join!

excellent trip, 5 hours is more than enough. But more details about the trip is preferred, like the boat departure point and the time of all scheduled time for coming back.

it was a fantastic tour, we enjoyed allot. However, we were hoping to meet someone from viator to hand us over our schedules and passes as mentioned. Since no one was there, we had to go to the ticket counter and ask showing our paid voucher. we were then told that our voucher was our ticket and gave us additional information for the tour. So, my suggestion is either you mention this on the voucher or have someone there to give you all details. It was also a bit award to show a printed paper instead of a ticket to all the locations as most officers was not too familiar with it. Anyway, everything went smoothly and we would highly recommend to all who are interested.

We took this tour last Thursday and it would have been much more enjoyable if it had been a better day weatherwise. Did not stay at the top of Mt Rigi at all because it was fogged in so don't know what there would have been to see. Did enjoy the cog train ride and cable car ride. Ride across the Lake was cold and foggy but much nicer on our return. Would not hesitate to book with Viator again and would definitely recommend to others if the situation should arise. Viator cannot control the weather.

Was an enjoyable trip once the clouds cleared. If it is cloudy you will not see any of the views. I would recommend printing the tickets as it was difficult to show the ticket checkers on my phone.

Trip was good with easy connections- however nobody recognises the voucher and theefore everytime it is shown there is a debate before they shrug their shoulders and let you travel. At the very least produce the voucher in the home countries language in order that the officials do not have to be bi-lingual

It was a wonderful experience. Most people knew what I was showing them on my iPhone with the viator confirmation. Only the one man when we were wanting to go down the cable car had no idea what I was showing him. Definitely worth doing

This was a good tour because it covered all modes of transportation needed to reach the summit. The boat dock was very easy to find.

The boat left punctually and was full of visitors. Detailed timetables were not received, however, the boat crew were very helpful in clarifying where to disembark. Travellers should get off the boat at the fourth stop, not the third stop, Weggis where the cable car descends. The train station is located directly by the pier which was useful. At the top of the Mountain the views are fabulous. It is a very steep walk to the very top. Be aware that you will need to walk back along the train track for about 20 minutes to access the cable car station. It is not at the end of the train track at the top of the mountain as you may expect. However, this is a very pleasant, if unexpected walk. The cable car ride is brilliant and offers fantastic views down to the village of Weggis, where you embark the next available boat back to Lucerne.

We ended up really enjoying everything we saw on this tour, but it is truly an independent tour. I think I had a different idea of what the "independent" piece meant, thinking it would be a guided tour on a boat cruise, etc. You basically take a ferry/water taxi that stops in multiple places. The person who scans your tickets on the water taxi did not recognize our itinerary and gave us some trouble, but eventually went away. It would be nice if Viator could communicate with them to let them know about these tickets. I believe you get off at Vitznau and take the cogwheel train up the mountain - once you are to the top the views are absolutely amazing and you have plenty of time to enjoy at the top. You then take the cogwheel train back down the mountain to the point where you can relax a bit and then get on the cable car down the mountain. That also offered amazing views. You then find you way back to the water taxi after a 10 minute walk down the hill and get back to Lucerne. Overall I would recommend this tour, but it would be nice if Viator had a bit more information on what to actually expect. When we booked, there were no reviews but I now see there are several and they all indicate the same thing. If you read the reviews, you will have a better idea of what to expect.

We enjoyed being out on the lake and seeing the sights from this point of view. I will agree with others that you are on your own in locating where to go, we had to rely heavily on others to confirm the right boarding for boat and train as well as when we needed to disembark. There was no commentary on the boat, it was just a water taxi service, with food and drink accommodations. The train has multiple stops as you travel up the hill, it is not an express trip. But once you get to the top, it was breathtaking. I would highly recommend this trip if you are an avid hiker, which was the majority of folks on the mountain.

It was a good tour but there needs to be more specific details - although we made it successfully the confusion wasn't fun.

The cog train did not recognize your voucher without some difficulty. We also had difficulty finding the cable car transportation. Otherwise all went well.

Never received any information or an itinerary. Overall the attractions themselves were good and I was able to get through everything by showing the receipt on my phone but would've liked to have had the tickets/itinerary in hand!
