excellent trip, we had perfect weather. It was a beautiful calm environment just perfect to enjoy the beauty of Rigi. A truly majical end by boat across the lake to Lucerne. a fantastic guide who took care to ensure we were comfortable with our journey and kept in touch with us while we were on our own, brilliant!

Very good view, best tour leader

Mt. Riggi and Mt Pilatus are very beautiful. You can see Snow mountain right in front of you. The places took you away from urban city hectic to a panoramic, calming, soothing experience. Our tour driver is Mrs Ana (63 year old lady) who do part time job there. She was very informative from the 1st minute we ride into the car. She explains to us about all the history of each places we passed through. The end of the tour she drove everyone to their hotel which are not part of the excursion without complain and we are the last couple in the car. She is very nice tour guide and as a person too.

Pity the big restaurant at the top of Mt Rigi was closed.

It was very much a self guided tour. We should have been told to leave Mt Rigi earlier than we did and it would help if the guide can suggest where else we could have lunch near the top of Rigi. Otherwise it was a very pleasant and relaxing tour.
