I guess you found the tour at www.viator.com/tours/Z urich/8-Day-Grand-Train-Tour-of-Switzerland-from-Zurich/d577-14343P68 through one of our pages, right? That is a wonderful trip and something to look forward to!
I am 99% sure that a ticket for your return trip from Lucerne will be included. It's not described like that at the Viator page though (I'll let them know). Most of these packages include a ticket for the last day that allow you to travel to any border station or airport, so not necessarily Zurich. But it can be Zurich if that's where you wish to return to. By the time you've reached Lucerne you will have no problem navigating the Swiss train stations and finding a train to Zurich!
Regarding the question that you e-mailed: it is hard to say which hotels will be included in the 3, 4 and 5-star packages. The reason for that is that tour operators mostly book rooms in multiple hotels to be used for multiple of their travel packages. Which hotel you will be assigned to depends on your travel dates and occupancy. It won't be hotels that are hard to reach, so no worries about that. I found the below hotels in older documentation, but please just use that list as an example, as I can't guarantee any hotels either. Indeed it would be best if all possible hotels options were listed, I'll let Viator know about that too.
