This is a great tour, especially if you've never been to the mountains or a ski area before. There are also a couple of stops on the way. The first is a very short photo stop by a lake. The other is about an hour stop in Luzern which is enough to see the Chapel bridge and the old town. The highlight is of course the visit to Mount Titlis. We spent around 4 hours there. There is enough to stay occupied during those four hours. You can have a great time, take in the views and enjoy some activities in that time. Highlights include the rotair, which is a large rotating ski lift that will take you part of the way to the top. At the top there are a few attractions like the glacier cave, which wasn't really impressive. Outdoors there is a suspension bridge which I found to be pretty cool and offered some fun photo-ops. Right next to that is a simple open ski lift which you can ride both ways in a couple of minutes. Nothing interesting if you've been on a ski-lift before, but pretty cool if it's your first time visiting a ski area. the highlight in general is the view from the top which is very enjoyable, you can also easily walk around in the snow. There is also a restaurant and an outdoor cafe. All in all an enjoyable time especially if you've never been to such a ski area before. Also, our guide was very informative and friendly. I would recommend this tour, especially since the cost to do it on your own would be much higher, let alone the hassle of arranging everything.

The tour by Best of Switzerland to Lucerne and Mt Titlis was amazing and well organised. The tour guide Pedro was engaging and had a wonderful sense of subtle humour. He had lots of information to share and was making sure each person in the group got attention.

Only not so positive comment was Lucerne part of the tour where estimated time for the attractions from departure point was confusing. For example, the time to Lion Monument was given as 10 minutesbut took more than 15 minutes. For a stop over of 1 hour, it was bit tight and some from our group missed the Lion Monument and were disappointed. It would be a good idea to put estimated walking time and dotted directions on the map that was provided that would have saved time for non-German speakers. The map however, was clear and easy to follow.

All our trips on Best of Switzerland were luckily driven by Juan Carlos , an excellent driver and very steady driving in difficult terrain.

My husband and I came to Switzerland for our honeymoon. We spent most of our time walking the streets of Zurich and sight-seeing on our own - but this trip was amazing! I wish we would’ve booked another tour with this company. Although the price is a little high, having a tour guide was a blessing because many of the places aren’t structured for tourists here and so the guide was able to give great suggestions and information about the city. Our tour guides even provided explanations in English and Spanish for the entire trip which was awesome! Although there is time on a bus, there are multiple stops and you have time to explore both Titlis and the city of Lucerne on your own. The mountain was impressive and the trip was so well executed. Couldn’t have asked for a better day.

This tour was great we really enjoyed all of it, our guide was very informative and helpful the whole day.
The only downfall to the day was the bus driver who was quite grumpy. There was no food or drink on the bus and understandably got annoyed when he saw a family eating however the way he approached them was not on, he begun yelling at them on the bus in front of the others, even after the family said sorry he continued to go on. I understand that they aren’t allowed to eat but there are different and more professional ways to approach that situation especially in front of children!
The bus driver than begun confiscating people’s food and giving it back to them at the end of the tour, I just thought this was a bit too much and his attitude really changed the atmosphere at times.

Overall I would recommend this tour it was great, however some of their drivers may need some training in customer service and communication

Amazing tour, highly recommended. Tour guide Cristina is fantastic, very knowledgeable and talented with her 5 different speaking languages. We stopped in at Lucerne for an hour of free time, this was a nice touch after 1.5 hrs of being in the bus.

My partner and I paid the extra $$ for the snow experience, it was about an hour on the beginners section of the slope.
Skis and boots were supplied. The snow experience isn’t for anyone that has ski’ed before. It was good for us to get the hang of skiing, however this experience made it difficult for us to complete everything we wanted to do at Mt Titlis. We missed out on the glacier walk and nearly missed out on tubing. It was a long tour, starting out at 0930 hrs and returning to Zürich after 1900hrs. Time is limited, make the most of it. Definitely worth the money!

The trip started on time, the instructions to join the tour were precise and helpful. We were a couple with two teenage boys and they really enjoyed the tour. The countryside was beautiful and the operator kept us informed of various points of interests and trivia about the areas we were passing through. They had a Chinese guide as well, and that seemed like a very considerate thing for the tour company to do, for the large group of Chinese tourists on board. We took a washroom and selfie break at the Astrid Chapel. Then, we stopped for an hour at Lucerne and enjoyed the local sights. The cable rides to the top of Mt. Titlis were super fun!! The views were FAB! We enjoyed a good hot meal at the restaurant at the top (and, the wifi!). The walkway at the top was closed due to bad weather but we didnt mind it so much since it was really windy and cold...! We also met SRK & Kajol at the top- in their DDLJ get-up! :-D
Our tour guide, a gentleman whose name, I've sadly forgotten now, was very witty and knowledgeable & helpful. Please convey my compliments to him (Bus 1, 22nd Dec 2019)
One special word of recommendation & appreciation for tour Guide Ms. Dulce Negerete, who was very helpful and made us very comfortable, though she wasn't on our bus! She is an asset to this Tour.
The trip back was faster since we bypassed Lucerne.
Very much Value For Money.

What a great tour! The scenery on the way up the mountains was absolutely breathtaking. Once we got to mount titlis we were able to do our own thing, in our own time which we really liked. I recommend taking either snow boots or hiking boots if wanting to walk around in the snow or they hire them for 10chf at level 4.
The only thing I didn’t like about the tour was as the tour was getting close to the end our guide told us twice that tips are appreciated and recommended! Hence we didn’t leave a tip as I do not think it is correct etiquette to ask.

We booked via Klook : Day Trip to Mount Titlis with Cable Car (Zurich Departure).
We did a Mt.Titlis day trip with ’Best Of Switzerland Tours’ and it was indeed the best!! Our tour guide (sorry, i forgot her name huhu), was superb and was really passionate in her craft. Along the way to Mt.Titlis, she talked about the history of Switzerland, and made it so interesting and exciting. She’s lovely and definitely one of the best in her field. Thank you for making our Mt.Titlis Day trip better than ever! We learned so much from you! Highly recommend!! (We did our day trip last Jan.14, 2020)

It is an enjoyable experience if not for the time constraint.The time in Mt Titlis is very short. I booked and paid extra for the snow experience. I thought that my family will be able to enjoy skiing as well as snow tubing. We had to give up the skiing experience because of limited time. Although we left Zürich at 09:30am, we arrived in Mt Titlis at 2pm due to few stops as we had to drop people at different places. We were able to go up the mountain at 2:30 pm as we had to wait for our tickets and our guide’s instructions. We were told that the latest time we can go on top of the mountain is 3:20pm as the bus had to leave at 5pm and it will take more than20mins for the cable car to go up and down. We had to leave the top at 4:15pm.
The good side about our tour is our guide. Antje is very good, knowledgeable, very pleasant and friendly.

Dear Mariatheresad2020, Thank you very much for having joined our tour to Mt. Titlis. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the experience and that you were happy with the service provided by your tour guide Antje, who will be delighted to receive your compliments. As an official part of the advertised programme, the stopover in Lucerne is appreciated by many of our guests. As one of the most popular cities in Switzerland, it offers the perfect opportunity to have lunch, to do some shopping or to go sightseeing before proceeding to Mt. Titlis. While it is absolutely possible to enjoy the snow experience and a gondola ride up to the top of the mountain, it is not possible to do all activities at the top and middle level during the time provided. For guests that would like to enjoy more time on top of Mt. Titlis, we highly recommend taking a look at our overnight package “Alpine Dreams”. It offers you the possibility to explore all activities available in two days and to enjoy a tasty 4-course dinner before falling asleep beneath the imposing Mt. Titlis summit. We hope that you were able to enjoy a wonderful stay in Switzerland and hope to welcome you back on our tours on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours
