Great day trip out of Zurich. Plenty of time for looking around, sightseeing, taking in the sights and shopping too. Enjoyed the visit to Lucerne and look forward to a return visit. The meeting spot for the return journey is convenient and easy to find near the train station. I recommend the day trip for those looking for opportunities to explore Switzerland.

What an absolute beauty this city is! It is a must see! Our guide was very knowledgeable and took great care of the group. We enjoyed having the day to explore and shop on our own as well. This tour is a nice mix of free time and a tour which educates you on the city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2017

I LOVED this tour for so many reason buts mostly for the long period of time I had in Lucerne to roam around, take pictures, take in the scenery, and NOT worry about rushing back to a bus. Lucerne is a marvelous place to lose yourself in. It's fairly easy to find your way around once you orient yourself to what's on both sides of the river than runs through it and there are endless gems to be found in this wonderful place!

i took the Lucerne day tour which gave me about 6 hours free time there to roam around. I roamed around the Old Town area, and found this town, with its cobblestoned streets, heritage buildings and bridges to be delightful and enchanting. There were lots of great cafes too. I highly recommend visiting Lucerne as part of the Swiss experience.
