This trip exceeded our high expectations! The weather was windy and one of the cable cars was closed for safety. No problem, there was a wonderful Plan B! A well prepared organization and outstanding natural resources!

Fantastic trip, great to have partial guide to allow for freedom to explore. Great to travel by boat, cable car and cogwheel train. Had enough time to do what we wanted in mountain and in Lucerne. A long day but recommended.

Mt. Rigi had the most amazing views. We were lucky to see these as the fog/mist rolled in on the day that we were there. Well worth the visit. Wouldn't matter what time of the year you go, the views are sensational.
