Great way to see the countryside and mountains near Luzern but the instructions were awful. Nervous all day trying to figure out what to do and what was included. They could have made this an exceptional trip with a few more instructions included with the ticket.

The first boat left us at the Pier ! The second boat had to be told not to leave me with in the bathroom , they were pounding on the bathroom door for me to get out … I did pulling my trousers up and running down the steps and jumping off the boat so I could be with the rest of my party . HUMILIATING !!!!! Next they tell you NOTHING -they yell at you in German - dropped us off at Rigi Klum and there is no one there to help you or even tell you when to be ready for the next train down . There are times posted from December nothing current . So we missed the train down and had to sit in freezing rain for an hour to head down . Yes it’s am independent tour the least you could provide is some guidance , time tables -anything would be nice . If you don’t speak German forget it — they yell at you ! I guess after a 2 year lockdown they don’t need any tourist money they must be financially secure , that is why no one is working ! I bet on a clear day it’s beautiful on a cold rainy day it’s awful ! And they wouldn’t even let us reschedule! Lesson learned is I am NOT going to book anymore with Trip Advisor ,tired of these second hand companies pushing us around like cattle and treating us like crap . A little respect goes a long way …

We may have been able to do this on our own for less money, but this tour turned out to be great! It was nice to not have to figure out the schedules and the options all on our own. Everything was smooth from the boat ride across the lake to the cogwheel train up the mountain and the gondola back down. The view from Reggie mountain is spectacular, and you can spend as much time as you like on the mountain. You have the option of walking and hiking as little or as much as you want. The weather was perfect for us, and this was a wonderful excursion from our visit in Lucerne. Loved it!

This was a great all-inclusive tour. Got to see Mt. Rigi. The scenery going up the mountain was phenomenal. Also the tram ride and train ride showed us a good view of all the surrounding hills of Lucerne.

This is a self guided tour. You basically just print out your ticket and show the barcode to the attendant on each of the transportation points. Unfortunately, we went in early May and you couldn’t see anything the fog was so thick. We hiked about two hours from the top of the mountain down through a few towns but it was rainy and cold. We didn’t see anyone else hiking and assumed they had probably got right back on the cogwheel at the top to go back down. I would still suggest to go just be prepared for bad weather or no visibility at the top
