Superb
The Jesuit church, Lion monument, and the Chapel Bridge were so beautiful! On top of that, you also get to see the picturesque Lake of Four Cartons with its crystal clear water! Of all the Lucerne day trips, this one is undoubtedly the best! The train ride from Zurich to Lucerne is a must as it offers the best views of the city of Lucerne and also gives a slightly off-beat experience! Overall me and my friends enjoyed the trip.

Excellent
If you wish to get a good look at the Alps in a single day trip, then this Zurich city tour is for you! The Thrillophilia sales team got me on board with their description of the trip. We saw the Swiss national museum, the Opera House, and even toured the Bahnhofstrasse shopping avenue, which has a plethora of items! And at the end then we took a ferry ride across Lake Zurich. The cable car takes you to Felsenegg- for the most stunning views of the Swiss Alps!
