On a cold grey day, the warm welcome on board was really valued. The yacht is totally panoramic - glass walls all round and a lovely warm interior. The electronic guide was actually audible anywhere on the boat, and she sliced through the water so very gracefully, as we sat drinking our wine, that we really felt ourselves to be... More

We toured on the Luxury Siphir Yacht on Lake Lucerne in July and had a marvelous time. The Yacht dock is located next to the fine hotels in Lake Lucerne. We stayed at the 5 star Grand National Hotel located down the street. We toured around the shoreline of the Beautiful Lake. It was a warm, sunny blue skies day.... More

Lake Lucerne is beautiful and only a 1 hr train ride from Zurich. ( 116 CFP for two, return). The Panorama Yacht Saphir is a very sleek boat offering a 1 hr tour of a part of Lake Lucerne with commentary through multi language headphones as well as a beautiful view of the Alps. The cost is 25 CFP and... More

We did the quick hour trip which was a great for a quick look around the lake. The boat was excellent, and the commentary was fun via your own personal audio guide. Choose your language and away you go. All in all, very enjoyable.

We had a five hour stop over in Lucerne, and indulged in this one hour cruise of the lake. It was a very well organised trip in a comfortable modern yacht. The commentary was easy to follow and very informative, and catered to many languages via the personal voice boxes. Scenery was stunning with un impeded photographic opportunities. So relaxing!

A boat ride is a nice way to see the lake. Perhaps there are longer rides available. We took the one hour cruise and it was a bit short. We didnt get to see much of the lake. There are audio guides available and they do provide some back ground, but they could provide much more information which would help... More

The trip was nice with a cool breeze in this hot day with a stunning view of a few mountains around Lucerne. The costs are reasonable and we had a good day out. The ship is in perfect condition and all seems new. The upper deck was very comfortable and I would suggest to all people who wants a quick... More

Great ride with narration during trip. A good piece of history and a leisure trip for a reasonable price. A nice way to spend the afternoon.
