What To Expect

Depart from a central Zurich location in a comfortable, climate-controlled coach and relish scenic Swiss vistas as you travel along the shores of Lake Lucerne to the city of Lucerne. On arrival, enjoy some time at leisure and see popular landmarks like the Lion Monument, Rathaus (Town Hall) and Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge).

Continue by coach to Engelberg, a mountain resort cradled by the Swiss Alps. Climb aboard a Rotair, a rotating cable car that affords panoramic Alpine vistas, and ascend to a dizzying height of 10,623 feet (3, 238 meters).

Take in 360-degree views and then disembark at Mt. Titlis’ snowy summit. Enjoy some free time to visit the magical Ice Palace and ride the Ice Flyer (not included if snow experience option selected), if the weather allows, in order to get closer to frozen crevices. Soar down a snow slide in Glacier Park and summon your courage to walk over Europe’s highest suspension bridge, the Titlis Cliff Walk.

Warm up with a steaming beverage (own expense) and then reconvene with your guide for the return journey to central Zurich.

In winter, from December to March, you can choose the Snow Experience option. Your adventure starts at Trübsee station. Slide down the hill on snow tubes and try skiing once in a lifetime on the beginner slopes – definitely a memorable experience you shouldn't miss.

I was orignally hesitant about the tour due to the price. However, I found it to be an amazing experience. Aside from transportation, we were also given free time to explore Lucerne and Mount Titlis. The guide was knowledge and engaging. Within Mount Titlis, there were multiple experiences including enclosed ski lifts to various summits on the mountain, snow tubing, an ice cave, suspension brideg/cliff walk, and the Ice Flyer (which is basically another ski lift). During my trip, the sun came out and the weather cleared up. On the top summit, we were higher than the clouds which offered the most breathtaking views. The views are what made the experience valuable.
Excellent tour

This is a one of a kind experience of a lifetime esp for my son. I highly recommend this to a family with children planning for this trip.
Well worth it!
Julie_W, Mar 2023
Scenery was spectacular, best seats are up top in the front of the bus. Lucern is such a beautiful city. Follow the guides instructions to what order to do Mt Titlis . Highly recommended.

Thyra_P, Mar 2023
I was traveling solo for the first time from the USA. This was an awesome experience, I worked through my fear of heights and enjoyed so much!! There are places at the top that are inside for you to chill if you need a moment 😂
Too hectic
ankit_r, Mar 2023
Titlis is amazing and must go for anyone visiting Switzerland. Tour was too hectic leaving no option to have food. Very difficult in case travelling with kids. We got 30 min at Lucerne and 3.5 hours at Titlis but need to give min 1 hour time at Lucerne and 4 hours at Titlis including Gandola time.
No value for money
MohdYousuff_M, Mar 2023
The tour is ok however lot of time wasted on when they combine two tours it resulted in lot of time wasted. We reach the ski place only at 12 instead of 11.00 due to another hour dropping another tour. It is much cheaper if you rent the car and do it yourself. If you are more than one person. Even when the van stop infront of my hotel he decide to drag us to the same starting point when they have added other group but refuse to even do that simple request
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear MohdYousuff_M, Thank you very much for joining our Lucerne & Titlis Snow Experience tour and taking the time to share your experience with us. We are very sorry to hear that the tour didn’t meet your expectations. During low season, the merging of groups allows us to not only guarantee our departures but also give the chance to visit smaller destinations than Mt Titlis. We have followed up on your feedback with your tour guide and he confirmed that everything went as planned and there were no delays. Nevertheless, we are sorry to hear that you had the impression that the tour didn’t go as planned. Like any destination in Switzerland, Mt Titlis can be visited individually. However, the historical information and personal anecdotes shared by our tour guides are the main reason why our guests opt to join our fully guided tours. We hope that you will keep fond memories of your visit to Switzerland and hope to welcome you back on our tours during your next trip! Best regards, Ambika from Best of Switzerland Tours
Worth EVERY penny!

Susan_D, Jan 2023
The day was perfect from start to finish. The tour guide was elegant and polished in her delivery, the bus was immaculate and very cozy, the scenery and route was great. Very worth the money. Was tentative to book it- and we’re so pleased we did (M-F couple, late 40s, USA).
Perfect day trip
Alicia_C, Jan 2023
We had the best day, we saw beautiful Lucerne and had plenty of time to walk around and do some shopping. Mnt Titlis was amazing and the views were perfect. We got lucky and had clear sunny skies. It was fun watching the skiers go down and the gondola ride was breathtaking. I would 100% take this tour again. Also, our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable.
It was an amazing tour!...
Giane_G, Jan 2023
It was an amazing tour! The ski experience was incredible and the guide in Luzern and Titlis gave us all the information and support.
Just right for a day trip to the “Alps”
James_S, Jan 2023
Took this tour in the winter so I could have skipped Lucerne as it’s not different enough from Zurich. Been to Lucerne in the summer and it’s beautiful but just eh in the winter. The mountain part was nice but wish the guide spent more time preparing the guests for what awaited them at Titlis. It could have been because my trip was on a double decker and I was one of the latter guests to board so was sitting in the back and it was harder to hear the guide. Plus there are a lot of guests on a double decker and the guide could have been better organized so it’s up to you to pick his/her brain on best use of your time at each stop.

Great guide but itinerary was just ok
Sheng_D, Jan 2023
The tour was well organised and the guide was very informative and friendly. We highly appreciated him sharing so much info on Switzerland, especially the locations we visited. The views were also amazing. The only disappointing thing was our time in Lucerne. We only spent 45 minutes there and it felt too rushed. We did not have the opportunity to explore much of the city except for a short distance from where our bus was parked. Overall, it was ok.

Excellent tour for families. Tour guide was bilingual which was an added bonus. He advised us what to do and in what order to take advantage of all things to see. Highly recommend.
