Take in 360-degree views and then disembark at Mt. Titlis’ snowy summit. Enjoy some free time to visit the magical Ice Palace and ride the Ice Flyer, if the weather allows, in order to get closer to frozen crevices.

Perfect weather in a perfect view. One of a kind experience. We all love it and really enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide is very helpful and understanding when one of the guest tried to steal our front row seat.

Excellent Tour

This is a well organized and fascinating tour that offers some incredible views of the Swiss Alps. We had Michelle as our tour guide. She was very informative and made sure the tour ran like clockwork. We were given a little over an hour to explore Lucerne which was enough time to stroll around and acquaint ourselves with the old city sector. Once at Mt Titlis, we took three cable cars that offered stunning views up to the mountain. Once on top, we had jaw-dropping views above the clouds. Absolutely worth every penny. You won't be disappointed with this tour!

Must visit place in Switzerland...You will only be in Lucern for about an hour and that city needs a lot more time than one hour, but the views from Mt Titlis are incredible if you get good weather.

Our tour guide Elizabeth was amazing. However, the weather tends to be foggy and we could see nothing, and pretty much everything at my titlis was closed. This tour is a bit of a rip off because they advertise the snow tube and ice flyer, even though they’re closed for the entire season and haven’t been open in a year. Still nice to walk around and there’s a beautiful lake with row boats and a great park for children.

Lovely tour, a bit chatty

Lovely tour ..Roberto was a bit too talkative during the bus ride. I wanted to enjoy the scenery but there was constant talking, also it seemed more catered towards Spanish speakers but there were maybe 4 Spanish speakers on the bus (and they understood English) while 20 of us did not speak Spanish — why no Arabic or Hebrew or Chinese too ?
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear Lahav_N, Thank you very much for joining our tour to Mt Titlis and for rating your experience! We can well understand that it can be tiring to be exposed to shared information in several languages over time. However, conducting the tour multilingually is highly appreciated by many of our non-English speaking guests, who mostly come from Central and South America as well as from Spain. Since our guides are instructed to share all information equally in both languages, this has hardly ever led to negative feedback before. To ensure that all guests feel equally respected and catered to, we will follow up your feedback with your tour guide Robert. We trust that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Switzerland and hope to welcome you back on tour during your next visit! Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours
