Overview
Take in Switzerland’s stunning scenery on a day trip that includes guided narration and allows free time to explore on your own. That way, rather than being chaperoned through the city, you can break away from the crowd and see the sights at your own pace. Additionally, by booking a tour with round-trip transportation, you can enjoy the journey without the stress of driving narrow mountain roads.

Taking the bus to Lucerne was great. The guide told us about Switzerland and on our way there. I was a little disappointed in that there was not an actual tour of Lucerne. We were dropped off in the old town for the day and picked up several hours later. While there was

We took the tour on 25th of August. Practically the Lucerne City Tour is mainly a "transfer tour" from Zurich to Lucerne. The full day is only 5h:30' and the only guide you get is from the booklet they provide in the bus and some basic information about Switzerland provided by

Response from Best-of-Switzerland, Leiter Gästebetreuung at Lucerne City Tour from Zurich
Responded 15 Oct 2019
Dear virgileco, Thank you for having taken part in one of our tours and having submitted your review. Our tour to Lucerne is a partly guided tour, meaning that the tour guide will not be with you during the whole day, which is also clearly advertised in the tour descriptions online. Our partly guided tours are catered for those guests who enjoy a more flexible itinerary and independent trip. The 6 hours free time can be used to explore Lucerne and all the sights the city has to offer. It is true that you can simply take a train to Lucerne, which will cost around CHF 50.- for a return journey from Zürich. Considering however that you will be accompanied by one of our tour guides for parts of the day, who can give you suggestions on things to do, we feel that this will certainly make up for the small price difference of CHF 9.- and is definitely an added bonus to your visit of Lucerne. We hope that you had a great time in Switzerland and also enjoyed your time in Lucerne. If you should ever be in Switzerland again, you may also want to take a look at our fully guided tours that we have available throughout the year. Best regards from Zürich, Best of Switzerland Tours

I liked this tour because you had so much time to be on your own. Guides give you some information before hand of what to go see.
