I upgrade this tour to so I could experience Mt Titlis, Emil our guide was incredible, friendly, funny and full of information, I hope if you sign up for this tour your guide is Emil. Once of the best tour guides out there,

As for the trip, It was one of the best i have done, So happy I upgraded, even with the rain I enjoyed it so much, The 3 gondolas rides, the view and the sledding was so much fun, Make sure you walk through the Ice cave and grab a bite to eat in the restaurant. Also the 1 hour stop over in Lucerne is a beautiful spot for lunch and walking around, the painted buildings are breathtaking

Take a walk over the ice flyer and see the amazing views and grab some great photos, 100 recommend this tour.

Had a great trip. But should have done a private trip as we were almost left behind in Lucerne walking trip owing to not able to walk fast enough with the rest of the group

The place was stunning! Although we were left there alone with no tour guide to talk about the place. The rest of the group went up to mount titlis and picked us up on the way back. A little disappointing.

Actually went to Mt Titlis instead, which included a little time to see Engelberg. Engelberg wasn't anything special, but Mt Titlis was beautiful.

Unfortunately on the day we had booked bad weather prevented us from going to Engleberg. Instead we were taken to Mount Rigi for a train trip up the mountain and back down by cable car. We then went to spend a couple of hours in Lucerne. It was a good experience but we were looking forward to the village trip. This was a trip hastily put together in order not to let people down, so overall they did well.

I did the independent trip, so I was able to see more than the people on the escorted trip.

Beautiful town, but be aware this is NOT a led tour. You ride to Engelberg with another tour going to Mt. Titlis. When you get off the bus, the guide points you towards the center of town (no map) and tells you a few things to do. If you don't have good navigating skills, it may be a challenge.
