About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Sihlquai, Sihlstrasse 41, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland

After having made your way to the meeting point in central Zurich, depart with your knowledgeable guide aboard a comfortable coach through the scenic countryside of central Switzerland. Relax on the journey along the Albis – a chain of wooded hills – and pass the shores of Lake Lucerne.

Stop At: Luzern, 6003 Lucerne, Switzerland

Admire the picturesque, 24-mile (39-km) lake positioned between steep limestone cliffs.

While you are driving into Lucerne, your guide points out the main sites of Lucerne, such as the beautiful Chapel Bridge or the Jesuiten Church. With some free time, explore the Old Town at your leisure, and discover the quaint alleys, squares, churches and homes of medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque design. See the 15th-century town hall and count the nine watchtowers atop the well-preserved 14th-century town walls.

Duration: 50 minutes

Pass By: Stanserhorn-Bahn, Stansstaderstrasse 19, 6370 Stans, Switzerland

Then, continue by coach to Stans, a town surrounded by orchards, and board the vintage funicular railway, built in 1893 and recently restored. You’ll delight in an unforgettable ride through flowering meadows to the valley, and disembark at the station.

Your guide will leave you here so that you can explore independently.

Stop At: CabriO - Mount Stanserhorn, Lucerne Switzerland, Stansstaderstrasse 19 Stanserhorn-Bahn, Stans 6370 Switzerland

ake the CabriO – the world’s first open-top aerial cable car – to the summit of Mt Stanserhorn, rising 6,230 feet (1,900 meters) above sea level. During the 25-minute ride, relish the remarkable view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola as you ascend. Take in the panorama from the mountaintop as you look down at more than 10 lakes and 62 miles (100 km) of the Swiss Alps mountain range.

Next, go on a short hike to Stanserhorn’s peak and visit the Marmot Park for a chance to watch the animals in their natural habitat. If you choose, dine on a typical Swiss meal (own expense) in the Rondorama, a revolving restaurant with fabulous views.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Luzern, 6003 Lucerne, Switzerland

After returning to Stans, take the public train back to Lucerne for some additional free time in the charming city. In the evening, your guide takes you back by coach to Zurich.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Sihlquai, Sihlstrasse 41, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland

The guide will drop you off at the same place, where you have been picked up in the morning.

Lovely ride up a funicular rail , followed by a unique cable car with a sun deck . What a view! A special mention about two lovely , friendly ladies operating these two modes!

This day, October 14, 2018 was my 75th Birthday. What a Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible day!!! This day trip without a doubt gets a 5 Star Rating from me!!!!! My son and I ended up the day by staying in Lucerne and having dinner at The Old Swiss House Restaurant and then catching our own train back to our stay in Sins, Switzerland. The Old Swiss House Restaurant ended surprising the hell of me with a lite sparkler, fruit, pastry, and Happy 75th Birthday wrote out in Swiss chocolate on a plate. And a little Swiss music box playing Happy Birthday. It had been 52 years since I had been through Switzerland. The scenery on this day trip was unbelievable SPECTACULAR!!!!! I LOVE SWITZERLANDS Splendor and Beauty! This is a must see trip for everyone!!!!! Lucerne is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Great tour guide and views from the mountain. I was not at all impressed with the extremely over packed bus. As a matter of fact, we decided to take the train instead of riding the bus back to Zürich. It was well worth the extra money.

A wonderful trip. Organized very well would highly recommend. Value for money. The scenery was to die for amazing views for picture but it does get very cold when you reach the top on the cabrio.

No fault of Viator, but our flight was delayed and we were unable to make it in time to go on our trip to Lucerne. Very disappointing....
