What people are saying about Mount Rigi

We love this 2 day program. We can do everything in our time and really enjoy our stay at the wonderful spa hotel. Climbing to the summit when the weather has stabilized and taking beautiful mountain walks. Dinner was very good and the dishes were excellent. We saw a sunset worthy of a movie. The next day we woke up early and crossed the lake to Lucerne. It was all charming and unhurried. Ideal for those who do not like having a guide and a very tight program. Highly recommended!
