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!
