This excursion is a must for anyone visiting the Lucerne area. The scenery and views are unparalleled to anywhere in the world. The boat ride around Lake Lucerne was a great way to see the area while relaxing on the water, and the cog wheel and cable cars gave us insight to the residents who live off the land. Our tour guide was personable, knowledgeable about the area, and patient while we climbed to the top of Mt Pilatus (7,000 feet).
