Day trip to Mount Titlis and Lucerne
Charanjeev_V, Jan 2022
What an incredible experience, wonderful trip and made memories for life. As the customers were all prompt, our tour guide was able to make extra stops and take us on a more scenic route.
5 star tour with affordable prices

Beautiful scenery and views. Wonderful tour guide, Dario. Would highly recommend this excursion which was also very inexpensive.
I highly recommend this...
Catherine_O, Dec 2021
I highly recommend this trip! We had four days in total in Zurich and this trip was a highlight! We do not ski but love outdoor adventure and the cliffwalk, rotating gondala and glacier walk were amazing once in a lifetime experiences. The guides were terrific and informative but allowed those of us who wanted to be on our own, like us, have freedoms and the Christmas marketplaces in Lucerne were different and more handmade items than in Zurich. Lucerne was beautiful. I only wished we had seen it all lit up with Christmas lights.
Unforgettable Live Experience

Recomended tour
Linda_I, Dec 2021
Mount Titlis was amazing. Tour guide was great. Maybe some parts of the sightseeing tour could of been shorter as the trip was quite long.
Winter Wonderland
jillgregoire, Dec 2021
The day trip was nice. We left on time. Our guide was multilingual which was very impressive. She was very knowledgeable. Lucerne is small, so we had just enough time there. Mount Titlis is beautiful, but unfortunately the snow prevented us from seeing much or using the suspension bridge, but that’s not the tour’s fault.
Amazing trip
Maria_P, Nov 2021

One of the best experiences in this world!

Our tour guide Anije was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The trip was well organised and we really enjoyed the stop in Lucerne as a chance to see another Swiss town besides Zurich.
Amazing view
Marilyn_C, Oct 2021
Perfect weather in a perfect view. One of a kind experience. We all love it and really enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide is very helpful and understanding when one of the guest tried to steal our front row seat.
