The "Golden Round Trip" — a popular route for tourists — involves taking a boat from Lucerne across Lake Lucerne to Alpnachstad, going up on the cogwheel railway, coming down on the aerial cableways and panorama gondolas, and taking a bus back to Lucerne with your private tourguide. 

Mount Pilatus is a mountain massiv with several peaks, overlooking Lucerne. The top can be reached with the Pilatus Railway, the world's steepest cogwheel railway, from Alpnachstad, operating from May to November (depending on snow conditions) and the whole year with the aerial panorama gondolas and aerial cableways from Kriens.

It's great not to drive around in a car all day but still go a long way and see and do several different things. The guide Adrian was very helpful and did not talk to much like most of them do.

The Mount Pilatus Golden tour was fantastic. We had Adrian as our guide and he was a pleasure. The river cruise on Lake Lucerne was beautiful and the cogwheel train to the top of Mount Pilatus was fun. The views from the top are breathtaking! We would highly recommend this tour!
