Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Zurich, Zurich

After having made your way to the meeting point (Sihlquai Coach Parking, Limmatstrasse 4) in central Zurich, depart with your knowledgeable guide aboard a comfortable coach through the scenic countryside of central Switzerland. Relax on the journey along the Albis – a chain of wooded hills – and pass the shores of Lake Lucerne.

Stop At: Lucerne, Lucerne

Admire the picturesque, 24-mile (39-km) lake positioned between steep limestone cliffs.

While you are driving into Lucerne, your guide points out the main sites of Lucerne, such as the beautiful Chapel Bridge or the Jesuit Church. Enjoy some time at leisure to explore the Old Town on your own, and discover the quaint alleys, squares, churches and homes of medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque design. See the 15th-century town hall and count the nine watchtowers atop the well-preserved 14th-century town walls.

Duration: 50 minutes

Pass By: Stanserhorn-Bahn, Stansstaderstrasse 19, 6370 Stans, Switzerland

Then, continue by coach to Stans, a town surrounded by orchards, and board the vintage funicular railway, built in 1893 and recently restored. You’ll delight in an unforgettable ride through flowering meadows to the valley, and disembark at the station.

Your guide will drop you off here and provide you with all the necessary information and schedules. So you are well prepared to spend your afternoon at Mt. Stanserhorn independently.

Stop At: CabriO Stanserhorn-Bahn, Stansstaderstrasse 19, Stans 6370 Switzerland

Take the CabriO – the world’s first open-top aerial cable car – to the summit of Mt Stanserhorn, rising 6,230 feet (1,900 meters) above sea level. During the 25-minute ride, relish the remarkable view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola as you ascend. Take in the panorama from the mountaintop as you look down at more than 10 lakes and 62 miles (100 km) of the Swiss Alps mountain range.

Next, go on a short hike to Stanserhorn’s peak and visit the Marmot Park for a chance to watch the animals in their natural habitat. If you choose, dine on a typical Swiss meal (own expense) in the Rondorama, a revolving restaurant with fabulous views.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Lucerne, Lucerne

After returning to Stans, take the public train back to Lucerne for some additional free time in the charming city. In the evening you meet your tour guide again, who takes you back to Zurich by coach.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Zurich, Zurich

The guide will drop you off at the same place in central Zurich, where you started the tour in the morning.
