Great experience going to...
Trisha_R, Sept 2023
Great experience going to Lucerne and Mt. Titlis. We had a beautiful day and could see far on top of the mountain. The ice cave was fun and the lift up was enjoyable. Would highly recommend!
Spectacular & Breathtaking!
Widad_A, Sept 2023
If you are in Switzerland, this is a MUST! One of a life time experience and it was spectacular!!! Fernando our guide was extremely knowledgeable, caring, friendly, and FUNNY! The views are breathtaking and mount Titlis is so majestic! Words can’t do this justice!! It’s a MUST see.
The "high" light of our trip!
HEATHER_R, Sept 2023
We had an excellent guide and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The gondola rides were spectacular, as were the ice caves. We were in Europe 18 days and decided this was the highlight!
Amazing place to see!
Luciana_B, Sept 2023
Great experience, very good service from the company. Luzerne and Titlis are a must see place in Switzerland.
Great trip to Mt Titlus
Cindi_H, Sept 2023
The Ice Flyer was our favorite. The gondola ride provided great views of the mountains and countryside. Hearing the cowbells was a great experience, and learning why they wore the bells. The rating would have been 5 star if we had more time in Lucerne. One hour was not enough
Worth the Trip
Mark_H, Sept 2023
Pedro was a great tour guide, very informative and lots of personality. Trip is well worth it, not only on the mountain but also the time in Luzern.
Trip up Mount Titlis
alsnjm, Sept 2023
Great drive to Lucerne and the drive to Mount Titlis. The guide was very good with information along the way. The stop in Lucerne was an hour which allowed you to wonder the sites and have a quick drink or snack. Mount Titlis was up in the clouds so we couldn’t see much but the ride up, the chairlift and the walk over the glacier was worth it. Food at the top was good and had good variety. It would have been a super tour if the weather was better.
Awesome experience
Giuseppina_Z, Sept 2023
The guide was excellent, very knowledgeable. Ice cave and ice flyer were great activities and even spent some time on the snow.
Top Notch - Must See
Karthigayan_M, Sept 2023
The tour was very well organized and professionally conducted. We had Two guides, namely, Sonia and Rafel. Both of them were very courteous and knew what they were doing. They gave instructions that were very simple and easy to understand. The tour is worth undertaking as it is simply breathtaking, every step of the way. Money and time well spent.
Generally the trip is very amazing and we have opportunity to see villages, lakes, animals and mountains.
Tin_S, Sept 2023
The Mount Titlis trip is amazing. During the trip, the weather is not help us. Otherwise we have more experience and more opportunities to see each viewpoint. The tour guide explained us very well with good information.
Fun, Unforgettable & Friendly!
Daniela_S, Sept 2023
Conrad was a great tour guide with energetic humor & knew how to point out all the interesting local facts that I couldn’t have read alone. Lucerne & Mt Titlis was UNFORGETTABLE. Amazing views, so much fun, and the day went by so quickly. I will recommend this tour to anyone who visits Zurich. Thanks Conrad for a great time!
It was an excellent...
Maulik_M, Sept 2023
It was an excellent experience visiting Mount Titlis and Lucerne. Our guide Fatima was superb guide.
Alex_G, Sept 2023
The places visited were all good, but Switzerland Tours really needs to change the time spent in each place. We spent 52 minutes in Lucerne and the guides told us they couldn't extend the time. They actually left 2 people behind. Mount Titlis was fun but needed only 3 hours to see everything. not 4. Ride home was a traffic mess but guides didn't try to explain anything. Not the best tour for the money. You could take the train yourself from Zurich to Lucerne and not be rushed at a third of the cost.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Alex, Thank you very much for participating in our Mount Titlis tour from Zürich and taking the time to write this feedback. We understand that you would like to spend more time in Lucerne, it is indeed a wonderful city. Nevertheless, our Titlis tour has a fixed schedule that we need to follow in order to be on time at the Titlis cable car station and at our meeting points at the end of the journey. For those interested in visiting Lucerne for a longer time, we recommend joining one of our other tours, such as Lucerne with Yacht Cruise where they can enjoy six hours of free time. It is true that we have specific schedules to meet with designated meeting times, and we kindly ask our guests to stick to them. But it is also fair to mention that the two individuals who were unable to join the group in Lucerne were more than 10 minutes late. With a schedule to follow, it is unfortunately not possible to wait longer, and also, the rest of the guests who arrived on time deserve a punctual departure. In any situation, our support team is always available to assist our guests if they have any difficulties finding the meeting point. Please note that our guests enjoy a total stay of 2 ¼ hours to explore the summit and enjoy lunch, never 4. Otherwise, the ending time of the tour would be at 21:00, which isn’t the case. This has proved to be enough time to participate in all activities and relax at the summit before the return journey. Our tour guides are trained to provide rich information about the history and culture of the country during the tour. However, in the evening and after a long day in the mountains, most of our guests feel tired and appreciate a quiet atmosphere on the way back. Nevertheless, our tour guides are always available for their guests in case any questions arise at any point during the tour. Mt Titlis, like any other destination in Switzerland, can of course be visited individually. By public transport, it would cost CHf 76.- and would involve taking a train and a bus only to reach the cable car station. We truly regret to hear that you felt this tour was not worth your money as it is CHF 3.- less expensive than the total journey by public transport. 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 are very happy to read that the places visited were wonderful and that you had a lot of fun at Mount Titlis. We hope you will keep your visit in fond memories and to welcome you back in your next visit in Switzerland. Best regards, Magdalena from Best of Switzerland Tours
Breathtaking Views!
Jordan_P, Sept 2023
We absolutely loved our Mount Titlis and Lucerne Day trip! It was definitely one of the highlights of our entire trip and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for amazing views. The view from the top of Mount Titlis is breathtaking, and there are multiple ways to get different vantage points of the mountains while up top. Lucerne is such a cute and charming town and we are so happy we got to spend some time exploring here as well. Our tour guide was amazing, she was very helpful and knowledgable during our tour. We loved this tour also because during the time spent exploring, you can choose to stay with your tour guide or you can adventure off on your own and go at your own pace to check out everything as you wish. We loved this experience!
Great tour
Alexey_G, Sept 2023

This was such a fun tour. Luzern was gorgeous and Mount Titlis was majestic. The countrysides are amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour
Great first trip to a Swiss Mountain
Robert_S, Sept 2023
If you’re in Zurich for a limited time and want to have a sample of a tall mountain, this is probably the most convenient way to do it.
Realy nice trip...
Adam_B, Aug 2023
Realy nice trip recomended . Frendly and good english.Value for money. Next time I will choice them to
Great trip up the mountain
Rosario_F, Aug 2023
We all enjoyed this trip. The views up the mountain were marvelous. The change from no snow down the mountain to snow high up the mountain was an experience. The ride up and down were great. The walk around Lucerne didn't particularly add value. I would choose a tour without that stop.
