Great day in mount Rigi! Monica, our tour guide, was outstanding, super professional, friendly and provided great information and advice of places and things to do. She made a fun day with great views, even better. Thanks a lot! Booking process was easy and with very clear instructions about meeting point. Loved that the day included boat ride, trains and even cable car. I would recommend this tour agency and this day trip 150%

Unfortunately weather was bad and it ended up being a trip where we saw nothing! Better to buy tickets shortly before the trip so you can plan accordingly

Great way to experience the mountains from lucerne. The boat ride to and from lucerne , as well as the cogwill up the mountain and cable car back down made it an overall enjoyable day Monica was very friendly and fyll of knowledge. You have a total of about 2hrs at the top of the mountain. Which is enough time to take it in
