Enjoy the panoramic views from Zurich to Lucerne along Lake Lucerne. You'll also get to visit the beautiful city of Lucerne. After 1 hour of free time to explore, the trip continues on to Engelberg. Check out Engelberg's stunning Baroque monastery. Built by Benedictine monks in 1120, there are still over 30 monks living and working in the monastery which dominates the town. Spend the next 3 hours strolling through the village and visit the Swiss cheese factory to experience first-hand how the famous cheese is made. Alternatively, you can hike on the breathtaking trails around the village and enjoy views of the magnificent landscape.
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.
On hardly any other city tour can visitors discover Zurich from so many different perspectives than on this 135-minute guided e-bike tour. With your stylish e-bike, you will be able to explore much of urban Zurich without wearing yourself down. The tour travels along bike paths through the lively and high-contrast Zürich West Quarter, with its former industrial halls that now house restaurants, cafés, and galleries. A short – and thanks to the electrically generated power – effortless climb takes you up to the Rigiblick funicular, where you can enjoy a breathtaking vista over downtown Zurich. Following, the route heads back down the hill through pretty residential quarters to the lake, passing many of Zurich's main sights – including the University and the Grossmünster church – on the way. Back on level ground, continue along the picturesque shores of Lake Zurich to the landing stage a...

An amazing trip and well worth the money, I would recommend this to anyone. The guide was great, the coach ride so much easier than figuring out all the trains and connections yourself. Like all of Switzerland, the scenery is breathtaking but the food is appalling! Tip, buy a sandwich at the Grindewald station as the food in the restaurants at the top is awful and very expensive.
The trip was partly guided and this suited our requirement perfectly. We wanted to explore Grindelwald and Interlaken at our own pace and we did exactly that. Grindelwald is like a dream. We were given a train ticket from Grindelwald to Interlaken and the bus dropped us right near the station. It was a scenic train ride and Interlaken in itself is a paradise.
We loved this tour and would definitely recommend it to others. A full day tour with a lot of sightseeing but somehow never felt rushed. Our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly, and the tour wasn’t too crowded.
Greg has provided a personalized tour even though the rest of the group canceled due to unfortunate reason he still go ahead with the tour even it’s only me and my friend showed up.
Great guide, pleasant journey, enough time to look at everything in peace. Nothing to complain about! Excellent!
