This half day tour was such a pleasant surprise. Ralf our tour guide was amazing. After a city tour and short cogwheel ride we went to a ferry about 20km from the center which was very beautiful. At this point the alps are much more visible and stunning. Finally the cable car to a great vantage point was the icing... More

We did the Lucerne and Mt. Titlis day tour with Best of Switzerland Tours and enjoyed the day out. The only annoying part was the fellow tourists who were late holding everyone else up but can't blame the company for that. The mountain was an awesome experience especially for those like me who rarely see snow! The cable car ride... More

We visited Zurich with my wife for Vacation during November and we found it extremely easy without any prior planning to spend quality time on Zurich sights. The excursion to Mt.Titlis lasts 9 1/2h but it worths it . Tour left at 9:30 and guide (Anna Maria if I remember correctly) was perfect explaining everything. She gave us a lot... More

Too much cloud on Titlis but still a great tour. A$446 for the two of us for a 9 hour trip. Started at 9.45 am with the very competent guide Stephanie Mills and careful driver Jan Carlos, not via the freeway but, with full commentary, through the very interesting Swiss countryside to lovely Lucerne. After the obligatory Lion monument stop,... More

Followed this tour and the service was good. We stopped over at Interlaken for one hour for a short break, followed by cogwheel train going up to the mountain. It was freezing cold (-12.5deg) with heavy cloud/ wind, we didn't manage to see much/ clearly at observatory tower, but it was good experience after all. The cost is CHF229/ adult,... More

It was our first trip to Switzerland and we were travelling with an infant so my husband and I decided to go for Mt Rigi instead of Mt Titlis or Jungfrau. We booked a guided tour for Rigi from Zurich and it was a great experience. We loved the Summit, cogwheel train and views of Lake Lucerne from top

This was a first visit to Switzerland for me. I did not understand the different pricing and the route to be taken to visit Jungfrau and the"Top of the World" highest point in Europe, location. I joined Fernando Herrera and his partner on this 10 hour tour. They were WONDERFUL guides and the tour ran smoothly. The higher price is... More

The tour guide is an absolutely hoot. He has everyone laughing all day and it is a very long day so it was much appreciated. He ensured everyone got amazing photos that day by taking some on his professional camera. Great group of people and very comfortable transport to and from the mountain. It is an absolute must do with... More

We were quite a big group of 29 people. The driver Manuel kindly picked us up from our hotel at 8:30 am. We were met by the lovely Daniella our tour guide at the station. She was lovely. She was very organised and she would like things to be prompt and timely all the time which is quite challenging especially... More

In this day and age when what you think you see in the brochure is rarely what you get, Best of Switzerland Tours -- Specifically the Zurich and Surrounding Area 4.5 hour tour -- is a refreshing change. It combined a tour of the city, with a trip on the lake and concluded with a cable car ride up to... More
