Absolutely wonderful! We weren't sure what to expect from this tour, but it was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed every element of the two day tour. Our night's stay on Mount Pilatus was magnificent - the views spectacular, the setting perfect. The included dinner and breakfast were excellent, and the ambience and service exceptional. Our experience was fabulous and definitely 5 star.

All the details were carried out to a T. My husband an I happened to be the only ones on our coach to spend the night at Hotel Bellevue on Mt. Pilatus. Trudy, our guide, personally went to the desk to verify all details for the morning descent, etc. The next day in Lucerne we met up with the group going to Mt. Titlis for the day. What an Alpine experience in the glacier and snow! It could not have gone smoother- I have taken student groups to Europe since 1980 and this was the best! I will be checking possible Viator excursions on upcoming trips.

This tour was pretty amazing and not at the same time. There was a lot of time spent dropping off people who were not on this exact tour to other destinations. The bus filled up with people for about 3 different tours. It took about 3 hours to travel from Zurich to Mt Pilatus, not 1 hour like its listed on Viator. Once on Mt Pilatus the clouds lifted and we had a great view. There were multiple hiking paths, a bar, and gift shop to occupy your time.

The hotel room on Mt Pilatus was spacious but the beds were two double beds pushed together.

The welcome drinks were all you could drink with some cheese, nuts, and chips.

Once done with the drinks we moved into the dining area. Everyone had their own table. The food was really good but any additional drinks were at individual cost. It was a really nice evening since only hotel guests were on the mountain.

The next morning I got up early to see the sunrise over the mountains, which was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

After this we took the cogwheel down and a train into Lucerne. I waited about an hour for the next tour group to pick me up, a 4 hour process. Once the various tour groups were collected we headed toward Mt Titlus. The weather on the mountain was terrible and you couldn't see anything.

We did the glacier caves and the Ice Flyer but on the ride you could barely see 5 feet in front of you. It was unfortunate that you could not see anything. It was also very cold causing people to remain within the building. It was very loud and crowded. This part of the trip I did not enjoy. After we travelled back to Zurich another 2 hour trip. With everything said and done I wish I had only booked into the first part of the 2 day trip as again there was a lot of time wasted just standing around waiting for groups to load onto or off of the bus. Mt Pilatus was great because there was good weather but Titlis was a flop and waste of a day.
