Everything was wonderful!!! From and back to Zurich!!! The best part was the Mt. Titlis, highly recommended! Worth the money! Well done to our tour guide Ana and the driver!!! Every details were explained well!

We really enjoyed the Lucerne part. We found the Engleberg part very long. We had over 3 hours there. There was nothing hardly open and a cold and wet day. The annoying part was we were told to be back at 4.45 pm and DO NOT BE LATE. We were all there by 4.30pm and the bus was there but the Driver had gone shopping. It was raining and very cold. He came back about 5 minutes late with his shopping! We were stood waiting in the rain as there was no cover. Not happy as all tours want you back on time. The lady Rebecca, the tour guide was amazing!

It is so beautiful there in Engelberg and Lucerne! The most memorable times I had is when we were riding the Titlis Rotair, the revolving cable car up in the air! we reached the very top of Titlis mountain, it is so beautiful on top of the snowy mountain, it was excellent! Violet

Please be warned when booking with La Vacanza Travel, they mislead customers. Booked a trip to lucerne with a visit to engelberg, they typed in very small print that the trip is lucerne only whilst keeping the visit to engelberg in the title to attract customers. Change the trip name fully to lucerne only. I am currently very disappointed and following a complaint procedure with La Vacanza Travel. Follow through with your proceedings if misled. I am expecting a reasonable refund.

ALL THE SAME, they prefer to sold adittional VISITS to climb mounts Pilatos or Titlis... but they dont work well on visit Cities: Lucerne or Engelberg. In Lucerne they stop about ONLY ONE HOUR!!! not time to visit some important points of this big city (like the Lyon of Lucerne). Oposit that they give us A LOT OF FREE TIME in Engelberg - a little place - where NOTHING IMPORTANT TO DO and NOT GUIDED
