We had the best guided tour on Saturday, September 30! It was two hours long and just packed full of wonderful tidbits and historical information as well as amusing anecdotes, and just a well thought out and timed walking tour! Our guide was knowledgeable, sincere, down to earth, and had wonderful presentation skills! This was actually one of our highlights in Lucerne! I recommend it for everyone!

Isabella was great. Really knew her stuff and explained a lot of the history behind Lucerne. She hit on all the highlights, from Chapel Bridge, to the Lion monument, to the centuries-old wall and towers around the city. Her tour was a great introduction to Lucerne!

Wonderfu walking tour of Lucerne. Luiz hit on all of the top tourist attractions and added commentary on where to eat traditional foods and have local swiss beer and chocolate. I attended the tour by myself and felt totally safe while making new friends.

Everything Luis showed us about his beloved city of Luzern was beautiful. His sense of history was so helpful to understanding how Luzern came to be. We even saw farm animals! I would hope everyone would be so lucky to be in Luzern and have Luis as their guide!

Iza was a great guide and we had a delightful tour hearing about the city and it’s history and also seeing some hidden secrets!
Excellent tour with Luis
Adam_W, Oct 2021
Luis, was a terrific guide. His love of Lucerne showed through throughout the tour. He was very detail oriented with relating the history of Lucerne and many of the city’s most prominent landmarks. There are so many objects that tourists walk by without any context - so we’re really happy we took this tour with Luis. Luis is cheery, knowledgeable, and very inquisitive. We’re really happy we took this tour and highly recommend it!
