Incredibly misleading. The 'partially guided day trip' was simply the bus driver giving a little bit of commentary on the way out, and then just dumping us in Lucerne to find out own way and do our own thing for six hours. The brochure claimed that the art gallery was free, do we headed there, only to be told we had to pay 15 Francs each to enter. Booking the day trip was pointless, and we may as well have just got public transport out that way and go off our own bat.

Essentially, this was just a bus ride to Luzern. The impression was that there would be a short guided tour, but we were completely on our own. One needs to compare the cost to a daily car rental. We did have a lovely day in Luzern.

We had less than 45 minutes in Lucerne, unguided, which is not enough. My friend and I got lost trying to find where the bus had parked, after our very quick walk thru Lucerne. We were 5 minutes late in getting to the bus, and it left without us. We were stranded in Lucerne on a rainy Sunday. We finally found an Uber to take us to Mt. Pilatus, where we arrived 1 hour late. The tour guide said that he thought eveyone was on the bus when the bus left. He said that there were (3) separate tour groups with (3) different destinations on the same bus, and he got confused about who was where. No reimbursement for our Uber ride = CHF 38.

Terrible! It’s not a guided tour! I can assure you it’s just expensive transport from Zurich to Lake Luzern. That’s all. Our tour from Zurich started with few facts which most of the people knew already. Then we got dropped off at Luzern and told to come back at 5:50pm to the same spot. Transportation from Zurich to Luzern costs 54.36$ if you take train. Very disappointed. Everyone expecting tour guide to tell some stories, some history, some facts. And maybe at least to take you through the city famous places. Would not recommend this tour. Buy thickets from Zurich to Luzern. Will be the same and cheaper.

Conrad was a wonderful guide with a great sense of humor. Lucerne was beautiful. We walked through the covered bridge, took a beautiful lake cruise, and enjoyed good food and a yodeling concert!
