Overview
Switzerland’s natural scenery is second to none, but getting around the country can be time consuming–or costly.

After an introductory tour of Lucerne, begin your journey up the peak by gondola and cable car, then descend by foot and cogwheel train in time for your sightseeing cruise on Lucerne’s scenic lake.

It was a nice tour. Worth the price I’d say. We have co-tourists who were late to return to bus on time due to confusion as to the meeting place. So listen to your tour guide.

I had done this trip 4 years ago, and had very fond memories. The trip we took on Monday, October 14, 2019 was equally as amazing. Everything was as expected, and the beautiful weather was a bonus. Our guide, Dario Del Monica, was very articulate, and full of information.
