What people are saying about Basel

We were very lucky, as Mount Pilatus was full of clouds, however, when we reached the top, the clouds gave us a break. Wonderful tour and very friendly guide. It's a shame we don't have time to explore the mountain more. But this tour is well worth it.

It was a very pleasant day. Our guide Abraham was very knowledgeable. He did not find the need to talk nonstop. We never felt rushed and did what we wanted to do. Thankyou for this great experience

Everything went very smoothly. Check the weather to be sure it will be relatively clear so you get good views. This trip is mostly about the views from the top.
