Lake Luzern is the heart of the town, so you must take a boat tour in order to see the city from so many different perspectives. It's enjoyable and comfortable and worth an hour of your time.

One of the highlights of our holiday! Blessed with beautiful weather, we had a lovely 2 hour trip on the lake. We had a stop off at Weggis where we had some lunch and enjoyed a walk around the lakeside. Gorgeous location.

Access to the ship was adjacent to the train station. This was a two hour trip. The boat was not crowded. the staf very pleasant, the water smooth and the scenery most beautifull. This was a most relaxing event. I recommend it

Did a day trip on the water and up the cog mountain to Mt. Pilas, so beautiful and stunning. Everything was top quality and no need to fear even though you are very high up! Loved this place so much.

Excellent trip for those with not a lot of time. Nice hour trip on a modern craft. Audio experience in 11 languages helped us around the lake to see the sights
