What To Expect

Board your coach in central Lucerne for the scenic journey south to Engelberg, departing in the afternoon. On arrival at this picturesque resort town situated in a valley below Mt Titlis, your guide accompanies you inside the aerial cableway for a 45-minute ride to the glacier’s 10,000-foot (3,020-meter) summit.

Take in dramatic views of the snowy Bernese Alps through panoramic windows, then disembark at the mountaintop for roughly two hours of free time. Perhaps start with a visit to Glacier Cave to see ice crystals in the frozen underground grotto. Admire the glacial landscape from the rotating Titlis Rotair gondola, which affords 360-degree views, or crunch along the snow on the Cliff Walk for vertigo-inducing vistas. You can gaze down at the icy depths from the Ice Flyer chairlift and hop on a snow tube at Titlis Glacier Park for downhill thrills (May–October). Admission to each acclaimed glacier attraction is included, weather permitting.

If the brisk mountain air makes you feel hungry, replenish at one of several restaurants at the summit (own expense).

At the prearranged time, meet your guide for the descent back to Engelberg where your coach is ready to return to Lucerne. Your tour then concludes in Lucerne Old Town.

Alex_A, Sept 2023
Our guide, Michelle, was excellent. On the way up to Mt Titlis she shared interesting information about the region. Mt Titlis was BEAUTIFUL! We have great pictures! Bring a jacket because it was cool.

MT Titlis
Grantley_S, July 2023
Having previously seen Mt Pilatis we found Mt Titlis much more scenically interesting. The Gondola experience was scintillating. Our Guide was extremely caring at the top whe re my wife had some difficultly walking thru the ice and snow. I enjoyed the experience on the Ice Flyer.
Beware of Group Size in This Tour!
Terri_B, July 2023
Fun day excursion but VERY packed. Viator advertised this tour to have a max of 45 people. A double decker bus pulled up already 3/4 full, apparently coming from Geneva. We were loaded and unloaded like cattle. Sights were beautiful at the mountain, so you don’t mind being surrounded by people and packed in a bus and then cable cars, you’ll have a nice time. Pretty disappointed that they lied about the max group size, thiugh.
Response from Host, July 2023
Dear Terri_B, Thank you very much for joining our Mount Titlis tour and sharing your experience with us. We are very sorry to hear that our tour logistics did not live up to your expectations. Mount Titlis is a very popular destination in summer and it can sometimes get crowded. While our tour is operated regularly with a 48 seater, in high season, we sometimes allocate a bigger bus to fulfill the demand of this tour. In this case, we accommodate two guides to take care of all guests in the best way possible and always having the quality standards we strive for as a priority. Again we are sorry for the inconveniences that this may have caused but we are happy to hear that you were still able to enjoy our tour and the beautiful sights at the mountain and hope you had a nice rest of your stay in Switzerland. Best regards, Magdalena from Best of Switzerland Tours

Despina_P, July 2023
Perfect experience. The small gondolas, the cable car, the cliff... all were great. Thank you very much.
Amazing experience, would highly recommend!
Michel_B, June 2023
Amazing views. Have to see it yourself to really grasp how high you really are!! Very well organized and pickup spot easy to find.
Great experience
Stefan_C, June 2023
There were short waiting times, if any, the staff was super friendly, and the views were simply breathtaking.
Breathtaking views that must be seen...but here must be other ways
Michael_N, June 2023
I would research and see if you can do this trip on your own for less money. Really, it was a bus ride to the ticket center for Mt. Titlus. There we waited about 15-20 minutes for our guide to purchase the tickets. I think we could have purchased them quicker as individuals. There was some commentary on the bus ride up but not a whole lot. We definitely enjoyed the day- there were breathtaking views, snow tubing, a walk across the suspension bridge and a ride on the Ice Glider. We were disappointed the Glacier Cave was closed and looked like it had been shut down for awhile. Another issue was on the conveyer belt to take you back up the hill after tubing- an older man in front of us stepped off the belt and dropped his tube. Luckily my husband was behind him, grabbed him and helped him the rest of the way up. If he hadn't, it would have been like dominoes and everyone on the belt would have been knocked down with their tubes and possibly hurt. In my mind, the woman monitoring this area, should have shut the belt down until the elderly man was off. It was a potentially dangerous situation. I think we should have researched first to see if it would have been cheaper to do this on our own.
Response from Host, July 2023
Dear Michael, Thank you very much for choosing Best of Switzerland Tours to visit Mt Titlis and taking the time to write this detailed review. We regret to hear that you felt this tour wasn’t worth your money. With other many individual guests and groups visiting this popular destination, the staff at the ticket counter may have some delay when giving out the tickets. Unfortunately, it is not possible to pre-book a specific time slot for groups hence our guests must queue with all other guests. We are also sorry about the incident that occurred at the tubing hill, but please understand that this wasn’t our fault. Incidents like this may occur unexpectedly and the mountain staff is well prepared for this. Nevertheless, we will forward them your feedback so that they can consider it in the future. Mt Titlis, like any other destination in Switzerland, can of course be visited individually. By public transport, it would cost CHf 80.80 one way and would involve taking a train and a bus only to reach the cable car station. The information provided by the tour guide during the bus ride about our country and culture and having someone to look after the group are the main reasons why our guests opt for a fully guided tour. We hope the views from the Alps and the activities at the top of the mountain partly made up for the inconveniences and that you take beautiful memories from your stay in Switzerland. Kind regards, Ambika from Best of Switzerland Tours
Excellent views!

Mind-blowing views from the mountain, definitely worth it! Well-organised tour and the guide was nice and informative, spoke perfect English and Spanish.
Excellent coach journey...
Excellent coach journey from Lucern to mount Titlis, trip was guided by friendly tour guide. Enjoyed cable cars to the top of the mountain, excellent views through out the mountain journey!!
Excellent tour!
KatherineA_D, May 2023
Took this tour on May 15th with Konrad (and driver Mario). Konrad was a fantastic guide- even telling jokes to entertain everyone when there was a small delay at the ticket check in. He also went above and beyond to ensure we had no issues getting my mobility-impaired mother to the top of the mountain. Thank you for an excellent experience!
Mount Titlis A Must Visit in the Area
Kamal_K, May 2023
View of the town below from the gondola was fantastic. It was an unique experience walking through the ice caves at the top of the mountain. Viator provided great service for travel to Engelberg from Lucerne and various gondola rides to enjoy the points of interest.
Best day ever! 🥰🥰
RoseAnn_M, May 2023
The overall experience was awesome. From the pick up point to the tour guide to the mountains and everything. Perfect! Totally amazing! 👌🏻
Be prepared! Amazing!
Carol_B, May 2023
This was a fantastic trip! The bus trip alone was worth it. This is what you imagine the Swiss countryside to be. We had horrible weather and couldn’t even see out the gondola because of the snow and clouds but coming back down it had cleared. This was true Alpine weather!! We were prepared but you can rent snow gear at the top. Even with the snow and low visibility the experience was amazing!!! Just be prepared! I highly recommend this trip!
soumyajit_g, May 2023
Had a very good time. Guide was very good. Overall the tour is a good experience. Value for money & very well made.
Great place . Will enjoy more if you are prepared
Harish_S, May 2023
Great place to enjoy the snow and mountains. Should have more than one pair of gloves and be prepared. Shoes with a good grip will be a great help while walking thro the cave .
