This trip was a waste of time and money. Why would they schedule a trip to a town where there is nothing to do or see and wait there for 4 hours? Do not take this trip. Pay for the full excursion instead. Besides, this company would not allow you to drink anything inside the bus. Seriously? When is it freezing outside and not even let you bring coffee on the bus?

sitting on a bench in a roadside paddock watching the grass grow and the dairy cattle grazing. With the mountains around and the hang gliders soaring. Peaceful.

A rather long & somewhat boring day trip. Not enough time in Lucerne, and too much in Engelberg ( understand why , because of squeezing two tours together, both Engelberg & Mt Titilus ) with preferential treatment to the latter. Tour guide was way too opinionated and gave a constant running commentary on her political ideologies. Bus driver could not communicate in English . All in all a lot of money for not a whole lot in return . It’s rather nervy of them to charge €2 for water , when it should be complimentary.

Not impressed with this trip. The guide left us and did not even spend 10 mins with us. All she did was complain and then towards the end she started apologizing. If I have known , I would have taken the train and not spend so much on this trip. For sure I would not recommend to any of my friends.

We took the upgrade to Mt.Titlis.The view was amazing .The tour guide was informative.It was crowded so it’s hard to enjoy the rotating cable car.
