    Stunning trip in every respect, the views are spectacular. Not cheap but worth every penny, CH Franc or Euro for 2 x cable cars, a cog railway decent and boat trip

    The tour was great with awesome views. We got to experience a tour by bus, cable car, cog train, and boat cruise. The only thing that could be improved would be adding another hour to free time in Lucerne. You only get 1.5 hours in Lucerne to sight see, shop, or eat....just not enough time to see everything you might want to visit. You get plenty of time on top of mountain and on lake cruise. There was a city tour and lake cruise in Lucerne that would probably be great for those not interested in the mountain.

    We booked this package from Luzern ticket station. It was a fantastic experience. Tour includes boat trip in Luzern lake, cogwheel rail up to Pilatus mount and go down with cable car to Luzern.
    You need I would say a full day for this trip.
    It's an excursion who includes several sightseeing and locations.
    We went for first class, so cost per ticket was CHE130.00 per person but definitely is value for money choice.

    Our tour was excellent and Michael took very good care of us. Highly recommend, especially enjoyed Mt. Pilatus and the gondola ride.

    We booked last minute and were grateful for the spot. If booking through the TripAdvisor app, be sure to go to the tour company’s website to confirm the exact meeting spot (in front of terminal 7 at the Luzern Banhof at the time of our tour) as it wasn’t immediately clear from the booking alone. Apparently this wasn’t an issue for folks who booked with Viator as it’s a little clearer there. I mention this because seventeen (17!!) people who were meant to be on the tour didn’t show.

    Best part of the experience was having everything taken care of in terms of times and tickets—coordinating the ferry, the cogwheel train, and the cable car would have taken extra effort that we couldn’t afford with our last minute planning. The view at the top was foggy but, alas, that’s the nature of the beast. Still beautiful.

    Ray (sp?) was our guide and he was a nice fella, but maybe could use more instruction on being a tour guide. His narrative along the way was choppy and disjointed. I don’t feel like he added much to the trip other than being our shepherd. In fact, sometimes it was a little awkward. He was trying his best.

    Overall not blown away but happy with the details being taken care of for us, so if that’s what you care about most, this would be worth it.

    We got the bus from the terminus beside the train station to Kriens and purchased our tickets for the gondola and cable car to the top of Pilatus. The weather was clear and the views were incredible. We had something to eat at the midway point before journeying to the top. It looks like something from a James Bond movie! Stunning views all round of the mountains and lake. Beware the birds looking for food which dive bomb people taking photos. By the time we were ready to leave the clouds had gathered and the views changed completely. Glad to have seen both. This is a must do trip.

    We used public transportation from the old part of Lucerne to Kriens, then walked up the hill to the start of the Mt. Pilatus gondola. We had a nice clear day so the view was excellent on the way up and on the top. We lingered on the outdoor deck looking back towards Lucerne and the snowy peaks in the other direction. We were glad we brought our coats because there was still a lot of snow on the ground. Once back to Kriens it was an easy bus ride back to Lucerne. Amazing view - don't miss it.

    I came here to rave about our guide, Anisha. She took excellent care of us and thought of everything to make our day flow perfectly. She took the train from her home in Lucerne to meet us in Basel and take us back to Lucerne for the day. She is charming and speaks English like a native. She went out of her way to make sure we had the best experience. Forging ahead to save us the best seats on the boat, etc.

    The tour itself is well worth it; the boat ride, cogwheel train, and gondola provide amazing scenery and of course on top of the mountain the vistas are breathtaking. Anisha guided us every step of the way and provided interesting facts about everything we saw. When the tour was over she stayed with us to show us around Lucerne a bit and even offered to escort us back to Basel, but we assured her that with her perfect instructions about getting on the right train, we would be fine!

    One caveat about the trains: make sure you have your ID with you. One of our party didn’t have theirs and the train conductor on the trip home refused to let them ride without purchasing another ticket. I note here that the instructions from TripAdvisor for this tour DID say to bring your ID but our one person didn’t notice the instructions.

    Other than that, an absolutely perfect day and once again, thank you Anisha for being so accommodating and thinking of absolutely everythjng!

    Fabulous trip led by the amazing Swiss native Martin. He arrived at our hotel exactly on time, had all the tickets ready for us, led us on a train, boat, cogwheel rail, bus, etc. He was aware of our physical needs and paused when needed. He had lots of information to share, not only about the stunning beauty of the area, and history, but about life in Switzerland. Martin made the beautiful trip a fabulous adventure!

    Mt Pilatus and Lake Lucerne was wonderful day trip. We booked a private tour and Jonas was a fantastic guide. He was knowledgeable and helpful in every way. I highly recommend him.

    I highly recommend this excursion!
    Our guide, Martin was very knowledgeable and friendly; and the views from mount Pilatus were stunning. This was by far the best excursion we've taken from Viator.
    Thank you Martin!
