In general a nice tour, but do not go on a rainy day.
Steven_R
, Jul 2021
It was a nice enough tour, but not ideal for a rainy day. Given that it was a Saturday, most things were closed, and there was really nowhere to be inside during the rain. Our tour was combined with the Mt. Titlis tour, and the tour guide went with those going to Mt. Titlis, so those of us doing the Engelberg tour were left unescorted, which was fine. He did a nice job recommending seeing the monastery. They give you 3.5 hours in Engelberg but an hour would have been sufficient on a rainy day. Overall a nice tour, just not a good place to be in the rain.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Dear Steven I aboslutely agree with you. The weather we had the last 3 weeks was rather nasty. Engelberg the mountain village surrounded by Mt. Titlis and other fascinating shaped mountains is really an experience but only if the weather allows visibility. We regret that we could not welcome you to our tour with more friendly weather. best regards / Madeleine

It was wonderful, so unreal and peaceful. The tour guides were very nice. I only wish we could spend 30 min more in Lucerne and may be stop in Astrid Chapel, the view was incredible. The hiking and promenade in Engelberg was amazing. Thank you.

I was not at all happy with the way this tour was planned out. We thought that it was going to be a guided tour of Engelberg just as many of our other tours by this company were, but instead we were just provided a bus service. There were 4 other tour groups in the bus with us and every group was just dropped off and picked up at their locations without any knowledge of what to do or see. Also, while Engelberg was a beautiful place to be, it is a ski resort town and as it was summer, there was very little to do. Almost all of the shops and restaurants open around 2 or 3 pm but we were taken there in the morning so everything was closed. Overall, this was a shuttle bus service, not a day tour, and I wouldn't recommend booking with this company. I do, however, recommend visiting Engelberg on your own time when the shops are open and there are things to do around.

I upgrade this tour to so I could experience Mt Titlis, Emil our guide was incredible, friendly, funny and full of information, I hope if you sign up for this tour your guide is Emil. Once of the best tour guides out there, As for the trip, It was one of the best i have done, So happy I upgraded, even with the rain I enjoyed it so much, The 3 gondolas rides, the view and the sledding was so much fun, Make sure you walk through the Ice cave and grab a bite to eat in the restaurant. Also the 1 hour stop over in Lucerne is a beautiful spot for lunch and walking around, the painted buildings are breathtaking Take a walk over the ice flyer and see the amazing views and grab some great photos, 100 recommend this tour.

Stephen R

Beautiful town, but be aware this is NOT a led tour. You ride to Engelberg with another tour going to Mt. Titlis. When you get off the bus, the guide points you towards the center of town (no map) and tells you a few things to do. If you don't have good navigating skills, it may be a challenge.

The place was stunning! Although we were left there alone with no tour guide to talk about the place. The rest of the group went up to mount titlis and picked us up on the way back. A little disappointing.

Denise B

Unfortunately on the day we had booked bad weather prevented us from going to Engleberg. Instead we were taken to Mount Rigi for a train trip up the mountain and back down by cable car. We then went to spend a couple of hours in Lucerne. It was a good experience but we were looking forward to the village trip. This was a trip hastily put together in order not to let people down, so overall they did well.
