Your guide will share stories about the history and culture of the region, pointing out spots of interest you might otherwise have missed.
When you reach the top you will have the chance to explore the Glacier Cave, with its centuries-old ice tunnels and fresh glacial air, and the Titlis Cliff Walk, which offers 360-degree views and an exhilarating route across a suspension bridge.
Those looking for an adrenaline-fuelled adventure will also have the chance to take the Ice Flyer to the Titlis Glacier Park. This thrilling chair lift will sweep you over crisp snowfields, with nothing beneath you except icey air and birds-eye views of Titlis.

Perfect Trip with Jonas

Jonas was such a charismatic young man who took us to some of the most beautiful secret spots and sights of Switzerland! We loved it!!
A MUST do if in Zurich!

Outstanding tour! We had a family group whose ages were from 12-75; and everyone was well accommodated. The guide (Jonas) was knowledgable, friendly, professional & took great care to ensure everyone had a great time. The support staff (Lina) reached out to us before hand with great tips for our time in Zurich, as well to make sure we were well prepared for our day trip. Yes - you will ride the train & it is totally worth it! Our guide made it timed perfectly & worth the authentic experience. As we had a little time (& energy) left in our day, our guide encouraged a stop on our return in Lucerne for a quick walk about. We are looking forward to using this tour company in a future trip! THANK YOU!
Wonderful experience

I really enjoyed our tour, we learned a lot and had a great time. Our tour guide Lina was kind, helpful, and provided a wealth of information. If I’m ever back in Switzerland I would definitely go on another tour with this company.
Great tour and even better guide.

We had an amazing tour with Lena (spelling?) on September 6th. She met us at the airport, gave us an overview of the day and some tips (changing shoes). It is great to have a guide that is knowledgeable and can adjust plans as needed. Any time something came up, Lena would quickly adjust. For example, some persons in the party had bad knees so she helped shorten some routes. She also gave great information without sounding like it was a lecture or a manual. She was engaging with everyone and made sure everyone was part of the conversation (and gave us time to just take everything in. Engelberg was a cute town with great cheese. Mount Titlis had spectacular views and Lucerne was picturesque.
Exceptional historical and breathtaking

Everything about this tour was exceptional. Jonas and our tour guide made the experience one of a lifetime. Some of the highlights were going to Engelberg and tasting cheese from a local cheese maker, Visiting Lascerne and learning it’s history but I think the most exciting part was going to amount to Mount Titlis and experiencing the beauty of the Swiss Alps at 10,600 feet.
