Venture beyond the urban jungle of Zürich on a comfy, air-conditioned coach and visit the magnificent Mount Rigi, which is hailed as the Queen of the Mountains by the Swiss. Once you arrive at the mountain, you'll go on two rides that'll give you breathtaking views of the alpine panorama. The first of these two vehicles is the aerial cable car. You'll go on a slow ride going up the mountain, but the pace of your ascent gives you a chance to take snapshots of the beautiful landscape. You'll have sweet time to appreciate the views you'll get. The cable car ride ends at the Rigi Kaltbad, a resort overlooking the incredible Lake Lucerne. As soon as you get off the cable car, you'll ride Europe's first ever mountain railway up to Rigi Kulm, the highest point of the mountain. There your jaw will drop because you'll get to marvel at 13 of Switzerland's gorgeous lakes and admire their azure hues from an astonishing vantage point. Once you're done taking in sights, you'll descend from the mountain on the train and depart at the humble municipality of Vitznau. From there, you'll hop on a public boat and go on a relaxing and romantic 1-hour cruise around the picturesque Lake Lucerne. After appreciating the surrounding landscapes from the lake, you'll get off the boat and go for a stroll around the charming Old Town of Lucerne to cap off the tour. You'll visit some of its famous attractions, like the Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church, and the Town Hall. If you're lucky enough, you might see the alpenglow of Mount Rigi before you leave. This is definitely a tour for the ages and it's a must for nature lovers.
