This was a nice tour of the lake. The length of the tour (1hr) worked well with kids, but if you want to see more pick a longer tour. Despite the bad weather, we were able to see quite a lot of beautiful sights and the price wasn’t too steep.

Beautiful boat, exquisite scenery. A must-do trip to see Lucerne from a completely different angle. The only downside for me was that I didn't have the audio guide. That was not the fault of anyone other than the booking agent I used to book the cruise. When you book this
