Everything except the Hammetschwand restaurant was ok. Self-service is the order of the day there, which I can understand. I think it's ok to clean up. But the guests are asked to clean the tables themselves, which I find unreasonable, especially since there are no cleaning materials available. The staff should do a tour to see that everything is OK. There was also a notice: "Toilets closed". Better communication would be great!

We really enjoyed the experience of going to Lucerne, I definitely advice everyone to go on a trip to Lucerne as it is a really beautiful city and with wonderful buildings and castles and churches and the view from the mountain was wonderful. The experience of the cable car was something I would like to experience again.

Lovely scenery, helpful staff, variety of activities, nice stops for traditional food, punctual, comfortable, one of the best travelling experiences we’ve had.

It was amazing thank you so much and the organization went smooth...much appreciated. Looking foward to next time.

Amazing experience, views and places!! And Peter was very helpful! Highly recommended
