Great Adventure with a fabulous tour guide!
, Aug 2022
The tour of the mountain and the lake was so much fun! It is such a beautiful place and our guide Fasel (not sure about the spelling!) was so informative and took such good care of us. We feel like we made a new forever friend! Would highly recommend this tour!

A memorable day in Switzerland!
, Jun 2022
The whole trip was well planned, and everything went very smoothly. There was a variety of experiences and they all were memorable. The scenery was beautiful! The personal attention given by the guide was also appreciated and enhanced the tour. We are very glad that we went on this tour.

Thank you for your feedback and hope to see you again in Switzerland.
Foggy but wonderful....
, Dec 2021
We knew that the season would offer unpredictable weather and we were right. The day was cold and foggy but the ride up to top of Mount Pilatus was still enjoyable and the lunch at the summit was good. The Lake Cruise was a little underwhelming as it was simply a shuttle boat between Lake Lucerne and a resort on the opposite side of the lake.

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, in November Mt. Pilatus isn't the best destination, even the peak is not that high and in often in the clouds. As there are no lake boat running and the tour includes normally the boat transfer, we use the only "thing that swims" at this time. Hope you had an impression of the size of the lake and come back another time for a full lake cruise.
Exciting Adventure
, Jul 2019
First, our tour guide was amazing. We caught a train to Lucern. Then took a boat across Lake Lucern. We really enjoyed the scenery. Took the cog wheel up the mountain. Wow! What an experience. It was foggy on the top so we had limited views. Then we rode the gondola down the other side of the mountain. This is an experience we will never forget. We are so glad that we decided to take this tour.
