I would like to thank Konrad for his great customer service, he ensured all safety measures are in place and continued to remind us of the social distancing. The trip was worth it, the drive was extra smooth that we didn’t get car sick highly recommend it with “Konrad”, we had our masks on the entire trip and ensured no good and beverages on board the car which was convenient for all. The upgrade part to the top of the mountain was a bit too much however we extremely enjoyed our time in Engelberg village.

I only give 4 star because the tour in Lucerne was not guided and Engelberg didnot offer so many things to do. Positive thing is,,, I appreciate the tour is on time so i can catch my train at 8 pm. The guide Gonzalo and Isa were also very informative and kind in our way to Lucerne and back to Zurich.
