We booked from the USA after calling to get details of the Mt. Pilatus Golden Triangle tour. (Bus, Cable Car, Gondola, Cog Train, Boat, Bus).
The trip would have been way better if this Tour Company had not combined us with the Mt. Rigi tour group. This combined tour meant we had to share the bus and drive out of our way and this crowded our time in Lucerne, reducing it to only 55 minutes. Hardly enough time to literally run through Old Town or to take pictures along the river.
We did complete the tour basics but basically ditched the Tour Guide because she simply was herding us from one venue to the next. She didn’t have our tickets at Mt.Pilatus in advance so we had to wait while she was at the Ticket window. She discouraged anyone from doing the Bobsled run or the longer hikes because of time. She endorsed the idea of lunch up on the summit but this would leave you with little time for exploring...besides the food was expensive and gross. Take snacks with you!
The real advantage of this trip was the bus transport to and from Zurich. Otherwise you would be better off by yourself.
After completing this Tour you will have had a quick, harried, but fun trip to Mt. Pilatus and Lucerne.
