Excellent tour! We loved the mix of guided and separate exploration time. The mini-tour at the end of the day walking around Lucerne was enlightening and a perfect end to a wonderful day.

We were a small group of 7. Our guide Ralph was wonderful and made sure that we were where we needed to be and he provided interesting facts about the area. It was a beautiful and sunny day and the views were fantastic. I like walking and decided to walk from the top of Mt. Rigi to the Lucerne return boat in Weggis. It was a beautiful hike but I don't recommend it since it was difficult going downhill and I only had 10 minutes to spare for the last boat at 6:05pm. I highly recommend going to Mt. Rigi on this partially guided excursion.
