It is spectacular. Great views, fun transportation: first a typical tour bus, then a small ski lift, to a large gondola to the top of the mountain, then cog wheel train, then finally a paddle boat. Lots of paths and different areas to explore on top of Pilatus. One day may come back and walk up.
Breathtaking! The bus, gondola, tram, cogwheel train and boat trip was the high point of our time in Lucerne. Fortunately, the overcast cleared so the views from the mountain top were great. We climbed some of the paths at the top to get better views below. We marveled at some of the people opting to climb up or down the mountain. This trip should not be missed!
Nice ride up the mountain in the gondola. Great views of the surrounding mountains as the clouds clear. The cogwheel train provides nice views of the valley and the boat ride on Lake Lucerne was a relaxing way to end the tour. A must do tour when in Lucerne.
Excellent tour that was worth the extra money for a guide. Weather was poor on the way up to Pilatus and remained so until 30 minutes before departure. But it cleared a bit and afforded us very nice scenery for the descent and for the Lake Lucerne cruise.
A perfect day. All aspects were more than we expected. Punctual, centrally located and efficient organisation Wonderful!!
Fantastic tour, Lucerne is an absolutely gorgeous city and the entire experience of going up and down the mountain was fantastic. Make sure that you check the weather, as this can change your experience. When we went it was cloudy, so while cool, the full views were blocked off. Overall I highly recommend, just ensure you get good weather.
This was a great experience. The gondola ride up is very nice and the first portion in a smaller gondola makes for a more intimate experience. Once on the mountain there are a variety of hikes to suit your tastes. You can do a short hike for stunning views or take a longer hike to get a broader set of views. The cogwheel train ride down was equally enjoyable and offered a lot of great views. Then you have a nice and relaxing boat ride back to Lucerne. If you are in Lucerne this is definitely an experience to enjoy.
Although this tour seemed quite expensive it was well worth the money as it involves two cable car lifts, steepest cogwheel railway ride down and a boat trip back. You have two hours on the top and the view is spectacular. We loved every minute of this and liked to have it organised for us. Guide was helpful and friendly.
Excellent trip covering gondola and train journey. We ended up in wrong boat because of lack of clear communication.
Precioso! Visita obligatoria. Merece la pena cada euro gastado. Recomiendo la excursión completa, que incluye: góndola, tren cremallera y barco.
Had an amazing tour guide who made the whole day very enjoyable! Great value for money.
Our guide, Xenia, was knowledgeable and friendly. All the people operating the cog train and the gondola were nice and made sure we felt secure. At the top, the restaurant was OK and the service was very slow and the servers did not seem to care if/when we got our order and if it was right.
The views were, of course, absolutely fantastic.
a really excellent half day tour, and our guide Emily was very informativet. good value, the scenery is amazing and the steam paddlewheel boat ride back to Luzerne was great
Great tour and beautiful sights. Good information provided throughout the tour.
We were very pleased with the organisation of the trip. The tour was well managed and very interesting. However it may be better to book when in Lucerne to ensure that the weather is good as cloud and some rain marred some of what would have been fantastic views. An experience well recommended and something one should do to see the beauty of this part of Switzerland
Excellent tour guide. The whole day was amazing. The cable car journey was incredible and we met a lovely couple from America. The view and whole experience from the top of Mount Pilatus was breathtaking. The cog train was brilliant. The driver was very friendly. The boat trip was good even though it rained. A good day all round.
An excellent tour - great tour guide! Just wish we could have spent more time at the summit as it was such a lovely day.
A brilliant trip. Well worth the money. Don't be put off by the mountain being covered in cloud. When we broke through the clouds the views were spectacular.
A dreams come true! Everything about the trip was magnificent, definitely worth every cent. The weather can be unpredictable and so pot luck on getting views. We had glimpses but it was like being on top of the world.
