What people are saying about Lucerne

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!! Words cannot describe how insane this trip was. Minu was our guide and she was simply the best. So knowledgeable and helpful. We were lucky to have a clear day where we could see all the mountains so clearly! The view up was breathtakingly beautiful! The whole day was planned out well and we throroughly loved this excursion so much. It is definitely worth the money as you see and do so much during the day. The highlight was definitely riding a Swiss train through the mountains with the most stunningly breathtaking views. 100% recommend to anyone wanting to see the amazing beauty of Switzerland !!!

Really enjoyed this day! Rolfe was our guide and he was so lovely and had a great sense of humour. It was a pretty chilly and snowy day when we decided to do this excursion but we still enjoyed our time up on Titlis! You have plenty of time to explore and do the activities on the mountain. We didn’t get to do the snowboarding as there was not enough snow when we went. The ice flyer and suspension bridge were really fun to do as well in a snow storm! Just be prepared that the weather can change very quickly so dress warm and enjoy your time whilst you are there!

What an experience! Tour ran like a well oiled machine. Guides were great. Unfortunately for us the weather was terrible (but the guides can’t control that!). We can still say we made it up the Swiss Alps!! I got quite bad altitude sickness, so if you are prone to sea/motion sickness, I would recommend getting some medication before going if possible.

This is An excellent Tour and very well organised with great information by tourguide about what we're passing. The tour shows you scenic views especially of Mount Titlis I'll leave you to find out. So happy and glad I went on this and will stay in the memory for sometime .

We really liked the tour, although it was very cloudy, we enjoyed it to the fullest, we highly recommend it. No delays.
