Well it was in September and the weather was perfect,stayed down stairs on trip up and on the roof on the downer very safe and great -do it-no problem ,but the view and the photos we took are the best. there is a nice clean rest area up there with great Australian coffee, Ther Lucerne area is so beautiful and any of the cable car trip on other mountains will still be fantastic , go for it .Did take a ski jacket for our 14 day trip but didn't really need it(we took to much cloth with us)

not a cheap trip to stanserhorn but well worth a visit. The view from the top on a clear day was superb. There are plenty of walks from extreme to gentle.

Overall, the trip was great. The stop in Lucerne was too short. We thought we would have time for a nice lunch in Lucerne before we went on to Stanserhorn. There was no time, we were able to pick up a sandwich in a local cafe to take away. Our guide was lackluster. We visited the Lion Monument. The guide brought us to the monument but did not share any history of it. Later, I googled it and learned a lot about the monument.
Stanserhorn was unbelievable and truly a postcard view of Switzerland. We were foruntate to have a picture perfect day. The funicular and cabrio was wonderful. There was too much time once you reached the top. Food is VERY expensive for fast food. Best to pack a picnic. All in all, too little time in Lucerne and no real tour. Stanserhorn was worth it.

We started off from Sihlquai Coach Parking, which is just across the Zurich Main Train station. We left 10 minutes later since we had to wait for a couple of visitors. It took us a little over an hour to get to Lucerne. We had a quick stop to see the lion sculpture. It was a Sunday so all the shops were closed. However there were still a ton of tourists. We had an hour to explore the city which I think was a good amount of time. We grabbed a quick lunch and were able to take a lot of pictures around the Charles Bridge. We then met up with the tour bus at the appointed time and headed to the town of Stans. Where we took a funicular then the CabriO up to Stanserhorn. It was a cloudy day, so when we were on the CabriO, and broke through the cloud cover it was an amazing sight! A sea of clouds with the mountain peaks jutting out. Once we got to the Stanserhorn it was just beautiful, I can’t describe it, you just need to make the trip. We spent around 2hours since we had to wait for our scheduled time to return. We walked up to the peak then headed back to the main area to have some coffee and cake. Once we got back down we took a 20 min train ride back to Lucerne. Where we were able to speak another 1.5hrs going around the city before we met up with the bus back to Zurich. The trip back was a little over an hour. It was overall a great day trip and I would definitely do it again.

I started at the white ticket office, was given a bus number to go to, reach the bus and am told wrong one, the guide goes and checks with the ticket office &says nvmd get on. Then I find out I am the only one taking the tour I purchased. The pamphlet I am given as high level instructions. We reach Lucerne are given 45mins to see the sights. We are told to meet the bus in Lucerne at 12:25p. I board the bus at 12:24p it is extremely hot. About half the passengers board & I ask the bus driver if it’s possible to get AC, he says no. The tour guide says he’ll drop me off in Straserhorn I will enjoy the sights on my own then he will pick me up back in Lucerne. We arrive in Stranserhorn, he then tells me he will not pick me up. I will need to locate a different bus & a different tour guide.
I would have been fine if this was all written down but I was only given the varying instructions verbally. After reaching Lucerne I said forget it, I bought a separate train ticket back to Zurich. I took a tour in Salzburg & it was 100 times better organized. Don’t book this tour!!! You can visit on your own. Take a train from Zurich to Lucerne, sightsee. Take the train to Straserhorn, take the cable car ride then take a train back directly to Zurich. No stress and you manage your time (much cheaper)

Dear visitor We are very sorry to read that we were not able to meet your (and our) expectations on quality! We do recognize that the organization was not good that particular day and there must have been some confusion by “assigning” you the tour bus. The tour to “Stanserhorn” is “partly guided” so it’ correct that you received detailed, written information for the unguided part. The journey takes you first on a scenic route to Lucerne meanwhile the tour guide comments on history and customs of Switzerland. After your leisure time, the Stanserhorn guests are dropped of at the valley station from where the ascent and descent and the way back to Lucerne by public train are unguided. In Lucerne you are picked up by your guide again for the direct ride back to Zürich. It seems that there was a confusion and you were placed in the wrong bus. It’s not a “problem” as Stanserhorn is “on route” to Mt. Titlis. In the evening the bus you were placed in the morning returned directly to Zürich without stopping in Lucerne. That’s why you were asked to join the other tour bus who was picking up the rest of the Stanserhorn guests in Lucerne. Secondly, you write about the AC. The answer of the driver was correct, but it is not because he didn’t want to turn it of but due to a very strict law to protect the environment we have in Switzerland which prohibits to have motors running meanwhile guests are boarding/waiting to depart. We know that this is an uncomfortable situation for the guest in hot summer days. Unfortunately, the AC only works if the motor is on and fines are high if the law is not respected. It is correct that this destination can also be visited by public transport, we just would like to point out the it is not cheaper than our excursion and you would need to change trains in Lucerne on the way back also. Finally, we do have a reservation for the ascent/descent and in busy days this is an enormous advantage as sometimes waiting time can be up to two hours for “walk ins”. As mentioned prior we recognize that the quality of the tour due to assignment of the wrong bus is not meeting our quality standards and we apologize for this mistake. If you are still in our country, please send us an e-mail to info@switzerland-tours.ch with your original reservation as we like to compensate you with a free “Best of Zürich” city-tour or an excursion to the Rhine Falls. We hope you still have great memories about beautiful Central Switzerland and remain at your disposal for any further comments. With best regards

We enjoyed our time in Lucerne. Our guide did a great job preparing us for the free time we would enjoy and how best to use it. The Funicular-ride was comfortable, and the aerial cable car and train ride to the top was another highlight. Unfortunately, the day our our tour was very rainy and cloudy so we were not able to see the beauty below from the top of the mountain.

The bus trip was lovely. The Funicular Railway very interesting. The best was being up in the sky on the mountain.
So beautiful. I did not want to come back down. The air was so pure. Great trip. Road the train back to Lucerne.
Very good trains in Switzerland.

We took this trip and opted for Stanserhorn instead of Titlis and it turned out to be a good decision. The Funicular Railway and the Cable Car were the highlights of our trip. One shortcoming was that there was very little time in Lucerne. Perhaps, a departure time an hour earlier would have given us more time in Lucerne.
