Best Day EVER!
Aug 2019
This is one of those rare tours you'll never forget - its like "the most-best Swiss thing you can do" tour. Our guides (Glenn and Renee) were fantastic. The use of E-Bikes made the basic riding simple and turned 'killer' hills (not many of those) into a completely manageable ride. We stopped at some historic sites, circled Mt. Rigi and took short breaks whenever wanted (photo spots!). We stopped by a local farm, the Victorinox visitor site, and had a picnic lunch by lake Zugersee before riding to Brennan to catch the boat back to Lucerne. Best Day Ever - you won't regret a minute or a dime spent on this one!

Yes, our day was one of those special "blue" sky pleasant ones; "Lucerne in a Nutshell" is what I recall how you labelled the day. Many thanks for sharing your experience so others benefit as the plan their one or two days in Lucerne. Wishing you many more special adventure days. With best, René Welti
