Pass By: Sihlquai, Sihlstrasse 41, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland

Start your day with a pickup from Sihlquai Bus Terminal in the center of town. Then, relax on your air-conditioned coach as you travel south to the handsome city of Lucerne, roughly an hour away.

Stop At: Longines Boutique, Grendelstrasse 19, 6004 Luzern, Switzerland

Your route takes in stretches of gorgeous Swiss countryside, so look out the window to admire the Albis Pass mountain range and idyllic Lake of the Four Cantons.

On arrival in Lucerne, enjoy an introductory tour of the city by coach to get your bearings, seeing sights like Chapel Bridge and the Baroque Jesuit Church. Hear the history of these top Lucerne attractions and get insider tips for places to visit independently. Stop for a scenic photo stop en route either at Lake Lucerne or Lion Monument and then enjoy roughly six hours of free time to explore the city at your own pace.

Lucerne is famous for its cafe culture, so perhaps wile away an hour or so enjoying an indulgent Swiss lunch (own expense). A ticket for a Lake Lucerne sightseeing cruise is included with your tour, so head down to the lake at a time to suit you, and then relax on board your boat. Listen to entertaining audio commentary about the history of the city while gazing at the picturesque lakeside scenery, framed by Mount Pilatus.

Maybe take a stroll around the city’s pedestrianized Old Town, or visit one of Lucerne’s attractions like Richard Wagner Museum or the 14th-century Musegg Wall. All entrance fees are payable at your own expense.

Return to your coach and travel back to Zurich. Your day trip finishes with a drop-off at the start point at Sihlquai Bus Terminal.

Duration: 6 hours

Pass By: Sihlquai, Sihlstrasse 41, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland

After a day in Lucerne, the guide will take you back to Zürich

Awesomely beautiful city not to be missed. The ride through the countryside is a great start to the day. We enjoyed walking all over the city as it is very clean and quaint. Beautiful lake Lucern on the boat was a highlight of the day. Lovely places along the river to rest with a cold beverage and to have an excellent meal. We enjoyed the tour thoroughly.

This tour was not worth the money and everything could have been done more efficiently a la carte. Tour leaves from Zurich HB at 0930 and takes 2 hours to make a 45 minute drive to Lucerne because the tour bus was doubled up with another tour going to a different destination. After a long drive of dropping off another tour, there was about 10 minutes of actual tour guide information and then we are dropped off at a gift shop in Lucerne and told to meet back near Lucerne train station at 5:50 pm. It would have been much better to just take train from Zurich to Lucerne (45 minutes), buy the boat excursion a la carte and then not have to worry about return time. The value-add for being on the tour was very minimal and quite the opposite, much better to do this adventure on your own. The bus was packed, the guide was pretty uninspiring, and the stress for timing was not worth the hassle. Please consider just unbundling and doing this itinerary on your own and you will enjoy the day much more!

My friend and I who took this trip felt it was a complete rip off. We paid more for this trip than any other viator trip we have taken and this was our least favorite trip. I was incredibly disappointed. Details were left out of the description of this trip that would have altered our decision to take it. We arrived at the bus, which to our surprise, had 3 tour groups on it. This was never explained to us. We drove for about 45 minutes and then were dropped off in Lucerne for an 8 hour day there with no guide. Lucerne is a beautiful city but we felt we were stranded there for 8 hours with nothing to do. We took the boat tour which was nice but only took up an hour of our time. It was a complete waste of our day in Switzerland. I wish we had found a different tour to go on. I think much clarification is needed for the tour description and I would not recommend this tour to anyone. You're better off paying the extra 100 to stay on the bus and travel with the group to the other stops!
