Great budget friendly trip for those who do not have cars or ability to rent a car here. Provided everything you need for the day trip except food, and views were great! I would do this again, but beware that most of the tour is not guided.
The tour is actually guide less which was fine because it gave me ample time to explore on my own. The view of the Swiss Alps were magnificent and breathtakingly beautiful. Good snow anti-slip boots are highly recommended. After exploring Mt Rigi, the ride down on the cogwheel tram was another awesome experience. Then a boat ride to Lucerne and another unguided free time to explore until the tour bus pick-up back to Zurich. Overall, I'm satisfied and happy with the tour by Best of Switzerland Tours.
The weather white-out whipping winds! didn't make for a great time at the top of Mount Rigi and I have to admit some nervousness in the aerial cable car due to the high winds we were one of the last trips up the mountain before they had to shut the car down for the day because of the winds! but the train ride down the mountain and the Lake Lucerne ferry excursion by itself was worth it. Enjoyed my unguided walking tour of Lucerne. While the entire day could have been managed without buying the tour, there was significant value in buying the tour and not having to figure out how to get from Point A to Point B on your own. I enjoyed the convenience of having all of the transportation pre-booked for me and really enjoyed the sights, even with less than optimal weather. The guide for the bus portion of the tour was both knowledgeable and friendly. You shouldn't have any regrets booking this trip!
Cant put into words how beautiful the views at the top of mount rigi were
I would definitely recommend this trip
Loved this trip! You get to see so much and I liked that it's mostly self-guided. It was easy to get from one meeting point to the next. Really enjoyed the train ride up through the snowy mountains and the boat ride across to Lucerne. Beautiful scenery!
Highly Recommended !The Day trip was very well planned ,did may things and in a leisure pace .The scenery was breathtaking from Mount Rigi .
Love the ride on the elegant criuse ship with magnificent view of the lake ,just perfect sipping a glass of wine .
I would love to visit again .
Good value. Planned well. Pack in many sights in one day without breaking the bank. We did this on a zurich stopover with a baby.

The view on top of Mt Rigi is breathtaking, one of the highlights of my Europe trip. Our guide was polite and witty, gave us great insider info about the area.
Mount righi is best place to enjoy sceanic view. Also plenty of opportunity to enjoy playing with snow. Train, cable car and boat ride is fantactic. Best time I suggest is mid if march
We were the only two on board our coach who went to Mount Rigi and I do not know why! It's a popular destination for locals and we enjoyed watching them ski and sled. We took the aerial cable car up, which is about a 12-15 minute ride. We watched the lush green scenery turn into wintry beauty of snow capped mountains and newly fallen snow. The cable car stops near the Hotel Rigi Kaltbad which is just a couple minutes walk to the cogwheel train. The train is heated and takes you up to the top of the mountain where there's another hotel, places to eat and breathtaking views at an altitude of about 1,800 metres. We made our way up to the Rigi-Kulm-Hotel for a window-side table, with amazing views, and enjoyed lunch and a glass of wine while we warmed up and watched the show fall. We spent about three hours up at the summit before taking the train back down to the ski resort area where we went into the Hotel Alpina for a beer and a snack then again boarded the train to the bottom of the mountain There we took a Lucerne River cruise aboard the MS Europa. She's a gorgeous 70 foot boat and once again, the scenery was breathtaking. All the mountain-top snow was, unfortunately, rain once we got into Lucerne so we didn't get to see as much of the city as we had hoped. All in all, my husband and I agree this trip far exceeded our expectations. Our guide Annette, kept an interesting and informative commentary going while on the coach, and we enjoyed the un-accompanied time up on Rigi. Looking back, this day definitely ticks a box on our Bucket List and we would go again if given the opportunity. I highly recommend this day out.
Very satisfactory, giving you the chance to enjoy beautiful Swiss nature, mountains and lakes. Nicely organized and leaves plenty of private time. Actually you are with the guide and other participants only when in the bus on the way from Zurich to the cable car, and on the way back from Lucerne to Zurich.
Excellent value, especially given how expensive things can be in Switzerland. Unfortunately it was snowing so much on top of the mountain that I couldn't see the amazing views until I started down the mountain on the train. But still a fantastic tour, which I would pay to go on again. Also the city of Lucerne was very pretty and the tour guide was very helpful and informative.
Mind blowing, the most amazing pictures we have from the trip, were taken on this tour. This was a highly organised and adventurous trip. The entire tour lasted about 9 hours, just as it mentions in the description. The details of the trip are true to their description. It was a combination of bus, cable car, cogwheel train, boat and then bus back to Zurich again. My husband and I did not imagine Mt Rigi would be so breath-taking. Everything we did thereafter, we compared with this trip. Even in the winter there was so much sunshine once we reached the peak. Lovely restaurants and cafes for snacks as you climb up the mountain, and there was enough time to take a walk, get a bite and take lots of pictures before departing for the boat.
excellent trip.host was very knowledgeable and happy and loved to make us laugh.trip up mt rigi and down was excellent,as was the boat cruise,Lucerne was beautiful.great day all round
This excursion was the best part of our holiday to zurich. The views from mount rigi are breath taking and looking at all the swiss houses on the way to it was magical. definitely worth the money. make sure you pick a day that is supposed to have clear weather for clear views
For folks who want to explore on their own this is a perfect trip. We were provided all the instructions and meeting points and them basically spend the day exploring Rigi and Lucerne on our own
The tour was wonderful. We received clear, understandable instructions on where to meet our tour leader. I felt that we got to spend time on our own exploring the sights, which was nice. I might have spent less time on Mt Rigi so I could spend more time touring Lucerne. Very nice tour.
Me and my wife had a wonderful experience with this trip. A combination of all 3 modes of transport road,rail and water and was well organised. Our guides Andy and Robert were informative and friendly. The alps were amazing and also the boat ride to Lucerne with free time to spend at both places was great.
