What people are saying about Canton Lucerne

This was a fantastic adventure. Our tour guide Annette was so knowledgable and helpful, giving us lots of interesting information and explained each part of the day brilliantly. Sweets before we arrived at Jungfrauhoch were really helpful as we did feel slightly lightheaded due to the altitude. It was a shame that the snow fun areas were shut due to poor visibility and stormy weather. However we still enjoyed stunning views and it was an excellent day trip!

I am disappointed i am not allowed to rate it 10 stars on 5 . I absolutely loved this tour and would say that this tour will get you to the best scenery and experience in Switzerland. Strongly recommend for tourists who have 2 - e days in Switzerland and may not be comfortable exploring on their own. Must do trip. I have been to Titlis too. If you have two days, suggest do both. If you only one day - this should be your preference.

It was awesome experience. Plus point was the excellency of our guide and Bus Driver, they were too good and very helpful. Location was very beautiful.

Absolutely the best experience! Breathtaking views and so much fun! make sure you hit the tubing earlier in the day. it closes early

The views all day were breathtaking! The tubing on the mountain was an absolute blast. Highly recommend!
