This boat tour of Lake Lucerne is ok. Frankly, I don't think the 30SF per person fare is worth it but if you have a Eurail Pass or Swiss Pass, you get a 50% discount. At 15SF per person, it's good. The tour is 1-hour...More

This is a great lake cruise if you just want to get a general impression of the lake area, which is what we wanted. Everyone got headsets and there was a recorded narration while we cruised the lake. Indoor and outdoor seating accomodated everyone.

The Panorama-Yacht tour was scenic and exceptionally well organized. The audio guide was informative and wasn't overwhelming. The tour was definitely worth it's affordable price and the yacht was beautifully designed.
