Full description
Begin your tour by meeting your guide at your hotel and make your way into central Lucerne. Close to the train station, your tour guide will board a boat to take a cruise on Lake Lucerne with you. Enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains and look back towards the city before arriving in Vitznau after an hour on the water. Across the boat station, your tour guide will lead you to the cogwheel railway. The 35-minute journey takes you from 1,440 ft (438m) above sea level to the top of Mount Rigi at an altitude of 5,900 ft (1798m). During the steep ride, enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding area.

Once you and your tour guide arrive at the top, walk up within 5 minutes to the panoramic platform where you can see Swiss scenery all around. The guide is available, to take pictures of you in front of the mountains. For lunch, choose from two different restaurants and if the weather is good, take a seat outside on the terrace and enjoy the panorama. 

On the descent, your tour guide will show you a alternate route: descending by cogwheel railway to Arth-Goldau - the east side of Mount Rigi. After arrival and a short walk to the train station, your tour guide will take you back to Lucerne. The tour will end at Lucerne train station or your tour guide will lead you back to your hotel.
