One of the most amazing trips to kick start our trip in Zurich! The tour guide was nice and friendly. Engel berg is so beautiful and scenic we almost didn’t want to go home. We would not be able to visit all the photo stops on our own so this trip is worth every cent!

Terrific day. Very knowledgable guide who kept us informed and explained clearly meeting places and times. Clean comfortable bus and we were lucky enough to have perfect weather. The scenery was stunning and we were very happy with the amount of time we were given to explore Lucerne and Engleberg. It was a long day arriving back to Zurich at 7pm but very enjoyable.

This is a Tour .. I think everyone must do only do add Mt Titlis, which was not our tour and we added it during the tour!! Since if you don't do that they would have left us at Engellberg and come back to pick us after 2.30 mins and we had a lot of rain so couldn't have done much of the city walking!!The Mt Titlis was breathtaking!! The fog did cloud us for Pic but still it was. Worth going!! Do carry warm jackets in summer too it was cold up there!!Only wish during the tour they had made small stop by the Lake Lucerne we did pass by it but couldn't take any pics due to rain..Overall a great tour and Guide..

Must visit tour... covered all good places... Lucerne is nice city for sight seeing and shopping. Specially chocolates, swiss knifes and watches. Not much to see in engelberg except mount titlis for which you have to pay extra money... overall trip was awesome and very good commentary by tour manager.

We had a great time visiting Lucerne and Engleberg. My husband and I were very pleased with the tour and since it was my husband's birthday, I was so happy that he thoroughly enjoyed the trip which he calls a feast to his senses. The views that were shown were amazingly beautiful. Our tourist guide Peter was very prompt, highly on time and no minute was wasted on any kind of issues. Do take this trip, very much worth your money and very informative too. This is one trip that you will surely have no regret especially with Peter and Felipe our driver who navigated the roads with ease.

Lucerne was beautiful although we had rain whilst we were there which limited out walk about. Engelberg was stunning, we could have spent a few days there :) fantastic
