Mountain majesty. It was wonderful how the mountain revealed itself to us. Starting with meadows and forest. Finishing with a glacier and shear cliffs.

This tour was amazing! Lars was a wonderful guide. This is a must see tour while in Switzerland! Just enough time in Luzerne. But the highlight was Mt Tiflis! It’s a once in a lifetime adventure! Breathtaking!

Trip was good and so was the guide. View was good but it’s little overpriced. Location is overhyped, Himalaya is more beautiful than Swiss alps.

It was foggy when we went. Didn't see the top of Mt. Titlis. Enjoyed the cable ride to the top even though we were not able to cross the suspension bridge on foot. Had a fantastic time exploring the glacier cave.

We really enjoyed this day tour from Zurich to Lucerne & Mt.Titlis. The drive was beautiful and we got to see a ton of storybook towns on the way to Lucerne. We had an hour and a half to explore in Lucerne which was a good amount of time to see the highlights and grab a sandwich. Mt. Titlis was incredible and would highly recommend this to anyone. The gondalas up the mountain were so fun, views were incredible and there were lots of fun activities at the top. Our tour guide was great and she shared lots of good info on the drive as well.

A enjoyable experience -Mt Titlis/ Lucerne day tour from Zurich
DEBBIE_K
, Jun 2022
Lucerne was beautiful, the mountain was memorable and a wonderful experience and the guide, Rebecca even walked with me to where I can start the skybridge walk, as I have never walked on snow before and it was quite misty. She is a wonderful guide, so clear, naturally soothing tone and very helpful, timely in her comments with an inner joy that bubbles out. I see why it is important to have a good guide to bring out the best experience. The only negative thing was I found out I had paid more than others with the exact same itinerary.

I normally enjoy going on my own and explore the city or places I visit. This is first time I sought a tour group. In my view, Best of Switzerland group is par excellence in their level of service. They maintain timing. Their guide are very knowledgeable and are helpful. All the three excursions my wife and I took were awesome. Raghunath Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Good, a few suggestions

Definitely a worthwhile trip if you're in Zurich for a few days but want to get a taste of Lucerne and the mountains. Once at Titlis, it is fabulous: great views, fun activities for everyone like snow tubing or sledding, a glacier cave and walk across an abyss. The bus went off on time and was back on time. However I don't give this 5 stars as there was a ridiculously short time (1 hour) in Lucerne that left us sprinting to just see the few main landmarks, no time to use toilets or get lunch. Also, the guide didn't really give a good overview of Lucerne, the tour was kind of strangely given in Spanish and English even though there were only a handful Spanish tourists out of a bus full, so she spent a lot of time trying to fit in the same small information in English and Spanish. One language tour is recommended. The second quibble is they were pretty hung up on not allowing any eating or drinking on the bus. Ok fine but if you don't give time for lunch, and the tour leaves at 930 AM, and you're able to eat something around only 4pm, that can make people dizzy. Last, they could have provided some cheap water, as this is pretty standard for high priced long tours. Last, I didn't like the guides' continuous repeating of "we will leave you here" if we were late. It felt like she was talking to children and not adults. Yes we know to be on time, we don't need to be talked down to.
