In Mid August 2014 I booked a sightseeing tour from Zurich to Lucerne with "Best of Switzerland”, per my hotel’s recommendation. The description that was provided to me lead me to understand that the tour lasts nine hours, including the trip from Zurich to Lucerne and back, leaving us about six hours of guided sightseeing in Lucerne. The hotel, that... More

We did the Mt. Pilatus tour from Lucerne. You go by bus to Mt. Pilatus. Then took A cogwheel train up a grade as steep as 48 degrees up to the top. We had over an hour on the top to explore at the top before returning down the mountain on the same trains . To get back to Lucerne... More

We joined the Mount Titlis tour in Lucerne after getting a train from Basel. We had an 11 month old baby with us and the tour guide knew we were coming and catered for us along the way. The tour was very enjoyable and we had a good amount of time at the top to do the different sites. The... More

We went up to Mount Titlis and really enjoyed our day. Just be careful when going straight up too quickly if you're not used to high climates because you may have problems breathing and gettung about quickly. Anna, our tour guide was quite knowledgeable and great one on one when she makes her way to each person. We did have... More

Went on a top of Europe tour with a funny and charming guide, Trudy. Started out as a cloudy day and it cleared up quickly when we got to the top. Our guide was knowledgable. Made the transitioning from bus to train and back very smooth, especially for foreigners. We stayed at the top for a few hours on our... More

Pretty good value for the money and time investment but could be much better. Not sure there are any better alternatives though unless you book (a much more expensive) private tour. The bus is clean and the tour guide (Bettina in my case) is very good in English and Spanish. There really was no dead time as you traveled by... More

Very nice tour. Lasts for about 12 hours. Went with my brother. Bernese Oberland is really worth seeing, one of the nicest mountains I have seen so far. Jungfraujoch is imprressive, at the top of the mountain you get 2 hours on your own to look around. I must say: I wish it were 3 hours, because there are things... More

Went on the Extended Zurich Tour, for the time allotted we were able to see quite a bit and did not feel rushed, got to take some great pictures! Our guide Evelyn was very friendly and knowledgeable, and spoke fluent English and Spanish during the tour.

My mother booked the morning tour to Rheinfall and afternoon (short trip) Zurich highlights. The Rheinfalls were great and well worth seeing, my parents went to the rock to get a better look (not included in tour, 8CHF for adults), over than being crowded on the viewing platform, they said it was worth it. I wandered up a hill for... More
