This was a fabulous excursion for me at 78 years old and for my granddaughter at 19 years old. The ride up in the gondolas provided extraordinarily beautiful views – absolutely stunning. We ate lunch at the hotel. The food was excellent. We noticed that many folks brought picnic lunches which looked like a fun option. Going down the other side of the mountain on the cog railway was an equally beautiful experience. The final leg on the boat to go back to Lucerne was a relaxing and beautiful trip. This is truly an adventure for all age groups.
It’s everything you want an excursion to be. Our guide Monica was friendly (please tip them), the bus to the location was comfortable, the ride up the mountain was unbelievably beautiful, the time you had is good depending on what activities you’re interested in. The cogswheel train was a once in a lifetime experience and the boat ride back is the perfect ending to the perfect day.
Pascal did an excellent job navigating through people and traffic with ease while keeping up a flowing discussion of what we were seeing, how life in Lucerne has changed since the beginning of the pandemic. Would recommend him without a doubt.
This was a wonderful excursion. If you want to hike a bit, setting off the gondola at the first stop is the way to go. Going all the way up to the top is amazing for the views, but there are more activities lower down the mountain.
Very good experience. The guides were very knowledgeable and everting went like Swiss clock work
