We bought a two day transport pass that let us travel any mode we wanted in the area. We took boat to Weggis....then two cogs and three cable cars...plus lots of hiking....had a great day. Wish I lived there to hike more.

Everything was amazing and perfect. Took us about an hour to reach the top when we started our journey in Lucerne. We packed a lunch and some wine while overlooking the alps.

I took the full day tour from Zurich including lucerne and it was wonderful. The mountain was fully in cloud so if have preferred to take the boat to lucerne earlier to have more time there. It was an amazing day out
