Charming Lucerne!
, Nov 2021
The walking tour of Lucerne with Luis was a blast! He managed to squeeze in so much information and places to visit within a few hours! Luis' passion and commitment to share with us his love and knowledge of Lucerne was truly evident and inspiring. The boat ride was relaxing and gave us beautiful and varied views from the Lake. Despite this being my second trip to Lucerne, it felt like I was getting to know the City for the first time - and enjoying every minute of it!

The tour was great! Louis was awesome!!! What a great way to learn about the city! I would however caution anyone with limited physical ability as there were hills and stairs. The total walking was about 4 miles.

Hi Babette. Thanks for your comment. About the walking, well i could not avoid it :) since i wanted to show you the most beautiful parts of Lucerne and luckily those places are a little bit off the beaten track but worth the Effort:) Sorry if it was too much walking for you:) and i hope you really enjoy it. The length's trail are actually 3 miles but we did more because the Elevator was taking too long and i recommended to walk rather than waste the time standing:). For my Guests who have difficulties walking then we take the easiest version of the tour :) and of course, they will miss the gorgeous alpine views! Enjoy your European Adventure! :)
Learn Lucerne from the best

This is a great way to see the city and learn about the history and so much more. Luis was the best guide we’ve ever had-knowledgeable, personable and with a great sense of humor.

Luis was very knowledgeable and great historian, my family LOVED him. The only downfall was he instructed us to get onto the wrong boat, so instead of a sightseeing boat ride we were on the ferry.

Hi Christina. Thanks a lot for your review. I am very sorry about that misunderstanding with the Sightseeing boat. I really appreciate your comment and helps me improve my travel services to my guest. I hope this didn't affect your Swiss experience and that you had enjoyed anyway the beauty of Lucerne city from the water. All the best wishes to your lovely family and hope to see you again in Lucerne and give me the opportunity to guide you once more in any of my tours around the Region :)

The walking tour was excellent. Louis is very informative, funny and he moved at our pace. Highly recommend it. The boat tour was very good. Getting a view of the villages from the lake was great. I took some amazing photos.

We started our Europe trip in Luzerne with a guided walking/boat tour. Our guide Luis was exceptional, he was well informed and brought us to locations in the city we may not have found on our own. I highly recommend this or any other for with Luis. A wonderful time!
