Everything was wonderful!!! From and back to Zurich!!! The best part was the Mt. Titlis, highly recommended! Worth the money! Well done to our tour guide Ana and the driver!!! Every details were explained well!
Excellent beautiful mountain scenery on top of Mount Titlis!

It is so beautiful there in Engelberg and Lucerne! The most memorable times I had is when we were riding the Titlis Rotair, the revolving cable car up in the air! we reached the very top of Titlis mountain, it is so beautiful on top of the snowy mountain, it was excellent!

Bait and Switch

Wish were had been told that Everything in Engleberg is closed on Mondays! It was hard to be dropped in a village that was closed and told we would be picked up in 3 hours! Or we could pay 200.00 more dollars and have a tour up the mountain.
Lucerne and Engelberg day trip

Lucerne city was stunning and Engelbert was beautiful too with its mountain panoramic views. Pity weather broke down when there, but otherwise enjoyable trip
VERY disappointing
Julie_K, 30-11-2022
We really enjoyed the Lucerne part. We found the Engleberg part very long. We had over 3 hours there. There was nothing hardly open and a cold and wet day. The annoying part was we were told to be back at 4.45 pm and DO NOT BE LATE. We were all there by 4.30pm and the bus was there but the Driver had gone shopping. It was raining and very cold. He came back about 5 minutes late with his shopping! We were stood waiting in the rain as there was no cover. Not happy as all tours want you back on time. The lady Rebecca, the tour guide was amazing!
