The BEST tour of Lucerne!!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Luis was FANTASTIC! He knows so much history and little interesting facts about the entire area. We went off the beaten path,exploring. Charming guide, very friendly and entertaining. 1 hour boat ride was just enough. Highly recommend!!

My friend and me have been recently on a travel and had a great opportunity to visit lucerne with a great guide Luis. He is funny, pays attention to our questions and shows everything you should see in this amazing city.
I wish one could always meet such a guide.

Fantastic tour of Lucerne!
Dec 2019
We would highly recommend this tour with Luis that includes an extensive walk around Lucerne, a lift up to the top of a hotel overlooking the city and a boat tour.

We got see parts of Lucerne by a local that you would not know to go to on your own. Luis was the best host, took his time and shared so much with us.

The best way to see Lucerne!
Nov 2019
We had such an enjoyable and informative day in Lucerne with Luis as our personal guide! He was such a gracious host. We arrived in the morning from Basel, and Luis met us right on time. We learned the history and backstory on all the landmarks as we walked the town, as well as the history of how this area was key to the historic beginnings of the nation of Switzerland. We were shown the best cheese and chocolate shops, and Luis pointed out the beauty of the surrounding mountains and their significance. We walked backstreets along the ancient wall of the city where most tourist don't go to get a fantastic view of the town. The best was saved for last as we went up to a gorgeous former castle converted to a hotel for a superb view of the lake, the mountains, and the town of Lucerne. Finally, the boat tour on Lake Lucerne gave us an additional perspective of the area seeing it all from the lake. This was our last day in Switzerland, which was a super way to end the vacation. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see Lucerne in all its beauty.

Amazing tour of Lucerne!
Nov 2019 • Friends
The boat trip on Lake Lucerne had magnificent scenery and a wonderful narrative. Extremely smooth and comfortable ride. Then Luis took us on an awesome walking tour of the historic parts of the city. He adjusted the walking to our needs and gave wonderful and interesting facts about Lucerne 800 yrs ago. Would not have traded this time with Luis for anything! Thank you Luis! So friendly, interesting, cute, and smart!

Louis was Great!
Sep 2019 • Couples
My wife and I enjoyed our two hour walking tour around Lucerne with Louis. He was very informative on the history of the area and communicated it in a personable manner. He had a great sense of humor and we really enjoyed our time with him. The boat tour was on your own but not really because it was very crowded! Lol. We would recommend this tour! Thank you!

Charming tour
Aug 2019 • Couples
A good option for sightseeing in Lucerne. Luis is a knowledgeable and amiable guide who takes you to the main sites of the city and provides background and history. The boat ride is with an audio guide which didn’t add much to the tour.
