Witness breathtaking snowy mountain landscapes on this day trip from Zurich to Mount Titlis. First, your guide points out some top Lucerne attractions on a short orientation drive through the city, followed by some free time in this charming city. Then, continue to Engelberg in the Swiss Alps and ride in a revolving cable car to the top of mighty Mount Titlis for majestic views of ice boulders and crevasses. Get closer to the crevasses on the Ice Flyer chairlift, enjoy some snow tubing at the Glacier Park and walk across Europe’s highest suspension bridge for more spectacular views.

Optional (in winter, for ski beginners only): Choose the Snow Experience option.

Must do if traveling to Zurich

I had no idea how beautiful the alps would look live and in person. Majestic is the best way I can describe what I experienced today. Our guide was great, she really shows how much she loves what she does. We learned so much about the country and culture while driving to the mountains. It was a tour within a tour.
Amazing on top of the world surrounded by snow

My children seeing snow for the first time in Switzerland. Lovely amenities and food. Gets busy so you will have to wait in lines for food.
A must do when in Zurich!

Amazing tour and a real must to get out of the city for the day! Our tour guide Thomas was great; very knowledgeable and made the day run smoothly. Lots of different activities packed into the day, definitely worth the price to get to see it all
Just right for a day trip to the “Alps”

Took this tour in the winter so I could have skipped Lucerne as it’s not different enough from Zurich. Been to Lucerne in the summer and it’s beautiful but just eh in the winter. The mountain part was nice but wish the guide spent more time preparing the guests for what awaited them at Titlis. It could have been because my trip was on a double decker and I was one of the latter guests to board so was sitting in the back and it was harder to hear the guide. Plus there are a lot of guests on a double decker and the guide could have been better organized so it’s up to you to pick his/her brain on best use of your time at each stop.
Great guide but itinerary was just ok

The tour was well organised and the guide was very informative and friendly. We highly appreciated him sharing so much info on Switzerland, especially the locations we visited. The views were also amazing.

The only disappointing thing was our time in Lucerne. We only spent 45 minutes there and it felt too rushed. We did not have the opportunity to explore much of the city except for a short distance from where our bus was parked. Overall, it was ok.
