Timings for Lucerne Excursion

Hi I was wondering if anyone has done this trip with the Lucerne option at the end and could you give approximate timings. I was going to venture out and look at something in Basel but was not sure when the excursions returned. It states that Option A goes up to Chateau du Haut Koenigsbourg and Option B to Lucerne and Mt Pilatus. I read from one viewer that they had lunch in Lucerne town. At what time did this tour get back to Basel?? Also it mentions both tours get a brief look at Basel. I imagine this is a brief drive through of the town on the way back to the boat from both excursions?? I might be presumptuous with this. Then there is a cocktail function before the captains dinner which I imagine starts at 5Pm. It sounds a bit crammed but maybe someone can let me in on rough timings.. Im going on the April trip next year

    We did this trip two years ago, but started in Basel. It amounts to a full day trip, left Basel around 10:00 AM and returned around 3:30-4:00 Pm. They gave us money to buy lunch in Lucerne and time to walk around the town. The trip up the mountain took a few hours. Basel is a great town, we spent 1.5 days there before boarding the boat, staying in the Tauck hotel.
