Full description

Enjoy a day trip from Zurich to the winter wonderland of Mount Titlis with a guide. Discover the beauty of Lucerne, enjoy a scenic drive to Engelberg, experience an unforgettable adventure on the Ice Flyer chairlift, and cross the Titlis Cliff Walk bridge suspended over the Swiss Alps. Departing from Zurich, take a bus ride over the Albis Pass and along the shores of Lake Lucerne on the way to the city of Lucerne. Along the way, your tour guide will point out the city's most important sights and include a photo stop at the Lion Monument or the lakeside, depending on traffic. Afterward, enjoy some free time to explore Lucerne on your own. From there, continue the journey to Engelberg. The breathtaking ride up into the high alpine glaciers of Mount Titlis begins here. From the Rotair revolving cable car on your way up to the mountain, get spectacular views of the deep crevasses in the glaciers, and the immense chunks of ice that break off in spectacular fashion. Enjoy incredible views over the Swiss Alps from the Panorama Restaurant on top of Mount Titlis. Visit the Ice Grotto, or take the Ice Flyer chairlift to get up close to the glaciers at an altitude of over 9,800 feet (3,000 meters). Adventure seekers can slide through the snow and down the mountainside on a snow tube – the choice is yours.

All perfect. I recommend it. Worth every penny you pay. The guide explained in English and Spanish at all times. Everything was perfectly understood. He made sure we were okay. Very nice. Definitely, if you go to Zurich and have time, do this tour. The only negative thing I would say is that there is no charger on the bus and on a trip that takes so many hours you may need it for your return home.

It was a nice experience, We depart from Zurich and firstly we went to Lucerne where we had time to explore the city and then we went to our final destination at Titlis mountains. It was a so nice adventure to be at one of the most beautiful spots in Europe and see the amazing view when you are on the cable tram.
