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

On this day trip to Lucerne and Engelberg, travel from Zurich by comfortable coach through the scenic Swiss Alps via Albis Pass and along the shores of the Lake Lucerne.

Stop At: Luzern, 6003 Lucerne, Switzerland

During your drive into Lucerne, the guide will tell you some historical anecdotes about this Swiss town and will point out the main sites such as the Chapel Bridge, Town Hall and the new Concert and Congress Hall . Afterwards you have approximately 50 - 60 minutes time to explore Lucerne by yourself.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Engelbergerstrasse 11, 6390 Engelberg, Switzerland

Continue on a breathtaking journey up to the mountain resort town of Engelberg. A typical Swiss alpine town in the canton of Obwalden, Engelberg is located in the sunny basin under the north face of Mt Titlis and is one of Switzerland’s leading mountain resorts. Visitors flock here in both summer and winter to take advantage of its natural features and sporting opportunities and to watch the ski jumping world cup at Gross-Titlis-Schanze.

This part of the trip will be unguided but feel free to explore at your leisure. Stroll around the village on your own and take the opportunity to tour a traditional Swiss cheese factory located in a monastery. Here, see an impressive collection of regional cheeses and other milk products. Enjoy doing some shopping or trying one of the traditional cheese specialties in the Bistro (own expense).

Visit the imposing Baroque-style monastery and learn about how Engelberg was originally founded by the Benedictine monks. Alternatively, take one of the many local hiking trails and explore the valley on foot while enjoying the peace and tranquility of this part of the Swiss Alps.

One of the most amazing trips to kick start our trip in Zurich! The tour guide was nice and friendly. Engel berg is so beautiful and scenic we almost didn’t want to go home. We would not be able to visit all the photo stops on our own so this trip is worth every cent!

Terrific day. Very knowledgable guide who kept us informed and explained clearly meeting places and times. Clean comfortable bus and we were lucky enough to have perfect weather. The scenery was stunning and we were very happy with the amount of time we were given to explore Lucerne and Engleberg. It was a long day arriving back to Zurich at 7pm but very enjoyable.

This is a Tour .. I think everyone must do only do add Mt Titlis, which was not our tour and we added it during the tour!! Since if you don't do that they would have left us at Engellberg and come back to pick us after 2.30 mins and we had a lot of rain so couldn't have done much of the city walking!!The Mt Titlis was breathtaking!! The fog did cloud us for Pic but still it was. Worth going!! Do carry warm jackets in summer too it was cold up there!!Only wish during the tour they had made small stop by the Lake Lucerne we did pass by it but couldn't take any pics due to rain..Overall a great tour and Guide..

Must visit tour... covered all good places... Lucerne is nice city for sight seeing and shopping. Specially chocolates, swiss knifes and watches. Not much to see in engelberg except mount titlis for which you have to pay extra money... overall trip was awesome and very good commentary by tour manager.

We had a great time visiting Lucerne and Engleberg. My husband and I were very pleased with the tour and since it was my husband's birthday, I was so happy that he thoroughly enjoyed the trip which he calls a feast to his senses. The views that were shown were amazingly beautiful. Our tourist guide Peter was very prompt, highly on time and no minute was wasted on any kind of issues. Do take this trip, very much worth your money and very informative too. This is one trip that you will surely have no regret especially with Peter and Felipe our driver who navigated the roads with ease.

Lucerne was beautiful although we had rain whilst we were there which limited out walk about. Engelberg was stunning, we could have spent a few days there :) fantastic
• Submitted 28 Jul 2016
Highly recommend this trip. The staff was welcoming and the motor coach was top of the line. Due to a snow storm we weren't able to go to Engelberg and where given choices for an alternative and a partial refund. I had read prior reviews and most stated they wished they could have spent more time in Lucerne, and that is what we chose to do and were not disappointed.

Great day tour, Engelberg was fantastic. Wish we had more time in lucerne, but it was not bad. We did not go up The mountain, good choice, or else we would not have seen Elgelberg.

Lucerne is a beautiful town, very picturesque. The covered bridges were unlike any I'd seen before. Wish I could have spent more time there, but I added on the trip to Mt Titles at the last minute, and very happy with that excursion!
• Submitted 05 Jun 2015
Both destinations are beautiful and amazing and among the best excursions from Zurich. The tour guide is fantastic. However, keep in mind that in Engelberg you gonna spend time alone (no guide). So it is better if you are accompanied by some1.

The day trip to Lucerne and Engelberg was the best day tour that I ever had. the Tour Guide Robert was very professional and had complete knowledge of the sites that we visited. The views are spectacular, the Swiss landscape has no equal. I highly recommend this tour!
