What people are saying about Lucerne

We so enjoyed this tour! Had some wonderful cheese, chocolate and wine while learning about some of the history of Lucerne. We finished the tour with a walk up to the castle, which is something we wouldn’t have found on our own and has the best view we’ve yet found in Lucerne — it’s truly incredible! Would definitely recommend!

Very well organized trip. The tour guide was very competent and passed on a lot of background knowledge. The stopovers at Kamply and the cheese dairy in Emmental were very well chosen and were fun and very informative. The city tour in Bern was great and the time for exploring on our own was appropriate. It was a great day.

The wow guide Peter was exceptional. Small van, interesting explanations, no crowd, no rush, small cute presents on the way. He took a country road instead of a highway just to show us the amazing views around and it was worth it! And Bern city is truly beautiful . Had a lovely time.

Thank you Andrea and Ezra for a fantastic tour and a great Swiss experience, well worth it! A beautiful way to see the countryside and enjoy villas and sights!

wonderful walking tour. excellent tour guide. a must when in Lucerne
