I absolutely LOVED this tour!! It was everything I had hoped for and more. Lucerne was spectacular. Strolling through the streets we stopped to enjoy a choir singing in one of the buildings, it was heavenly! Then the cable car up to Mt Pilatus was breathtaking! I truly didn't grasp just how high we were going and was blown away by the views, especially on the second cable car. Just amazing! Once up at the top we ate first as it we super hungry by then. I highly recommend the Schnitzel! Delish. The views from the top of Mt. Pilatus were stunning! There are so many areas to explore once you are at the top. I climbed one of the vistas and then explored the Dragon Caves. All in all a wonderful Day Trip and one that I will not forget.
Awesome tour!! Highly recommend this... Will always relish this wonderful experience.
Our tour guide Minu Faber was also wonderful
Awesome tour. Great way to experience the beauty of Switzerland.
Excellent day tour! Passed by Meggen, Lake Lucerne for a 5-minute bio break. Then 1-hour stopover at Lucerne: enough time to visit the Lion Monument, take pictures of the Chapel Bridge, shop for souvenir items and grab a quick meal at the drop off point. I forgot the name of the cafe but their soup and sausage croissant was delicious! Two cable cars to Mt. Pilatus - the first accommodated 4, the second, 60 standing up. Fortunately, it was bright and sunny so we got to take tons of amazing pictures! Spent about 2.5 hours there total which is pretty tight if you want to go up both peaks available. The Dragon Trail is pretty steep so if you have elderly companions, might be better to skip that one. The cog ride down is about 35-40 mins. long then aboard another 45-minute trip via boat along Lake Lucerne. Excellent tour guide as well, shared plenty of interesting trivia both historical and current and knew when people needed to rest. Bring a good camera, warm jacket and scarf.
We had a wonderful day on this tour!!! Gorgeous views. I love that all the excursions leave from one place which is easy to get to.
There was some confusing information throughout the day, but we made it fine in the end.
Disappointed on the Lake Lucerne boat as we were treated like second class citizens not being allowed in the back of the boat even though the front was filled up. The back is for first class customers.
Beautiful bus ride. Gondola ride up was gorgeous. Lunch at the top and time to explore.
Cog wheel train down was exciting. Boat ride and then bus ride back. Very enjoyable. Guide was informative.
I would recommend this trip for sure!!!
This was a great day. Antje was our guide and she did a wonderful job. From Zurich we bussed to Lucerne, took a cable car up to Mt Pilatus, which was fun and very scenic. Unfortunately when we got to the top it was foggy, but you can't control the weather. At the top we explored a little bit, we heard a great band, shopped and had lunch. Then it was time for the cog-wheel train ride down. That was so cool. Once back down in Lucerne, we took a boat cruise around Lake Lucerne. Very picturesque town. Did a little shopping and back on the bus to Zurich. Overall we would do this excursion again.
This was one of the best trip we have taken in a long time.
The tour guide was very helpful and knowledgable and we had a great time
I recommend this trip
Very good. The guide was excellent. At the top the weather was a bit bad with clouds.
This tour was awesome! I will say that we got very lucky with the weather and had a gorgeous day....it could be a different experience if the weather was bad, but that wouldn't be the fault of the tour. It was organized very well. On the way there the tour guide provided some history and fun facts about Switzerland and the villages we were driving through, then once we got to Lucerne we had a little bit of time to explore before heading up the gondolas to the top of Mt Pilatus. The views were so breathtaking. We had a good couple of hours to roam freely to different peaks and down different hiking paths, and there was food and drink up there as well. Afterwards we took the cogwheel railway down which was unique, followed by an hour long boat ride across Lake Lucerne with a quick trip home. It was very well run, you got to see a lot and on a beautiful day this simply can't be beat.
It was a great adventure and the tour guide had everything very organized. She even made sure the weather was perfect - sunny and warm. The only disappointment was on the boat where they wanted to charge extra to sit up on the top deck.

The tour was awesome. The views were amazing and it was a great day!
Stunning. Great guide!!!
I wish we have had some more time in the recreation areas.
You should tell tourist that you have no time for the slide, for example.
Great day, tour was amazing. Sad the bus driver was so rude to everyone
The tour was well organized. It was a long day but we were able to enjoy every single minute of the trip. Our tour guide, Stephanie was amazing very helpful and made sure everyone in the tour had a great experience. Highly recommended!!!
This trip was the most amazing experience! We would recommend this excursion to anyone!
This tour is amazing and we enjoy itlot. Tour guide was so helpful n knowledgeable.
Wonderful tour starting in Zurich. Drove through many scenic towns to Mt. Pilatus for the gondola rides to the top. The cog wheel train ride down the mountain was spectacular! All of this was topped off by a cruise across Lake Lucerne.
Highly recommend this tour!
Fantastic tour, money well spent! Our guide was great and had a wealth of knowledge.
Lovely day out, our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. Would definitely recommend, especially if you only have a limited amount of time to spend in Switzerland and want to fit in the alps :
