Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. He made the experience very enjoyable. I do feel like there was a bit of flase advertising. The image for your ad and title and description made it seem like we would get a boat tour as well, not a taxi ride on a boat. We were just kind of left to do the boat on our own. And we already has a Swiss pass so we could have gotten that for free.

Hi Savanna. Thanks a lot for your comment:). The Boat ride takes you around Lake Lucerne for one hour and it offers Audioguide in English. I showed you personally where to get the boat and gave you the tickets. In the tour description is clearly said that the boat part is self guided with flexible boarding time. Happy Travels :))) and hope to see again in the most beautiful swiss city!!! Luzern!!

Walking tour was great with Luis. Helped us orient ourselves and gave interesting information. The boat tour wasn't really a tour. It just went across the lake and back, there was no commentary just really a boat ride to say you were on the lake.

My daughter (14 yr) and I had a wonderful walking tour with Elaine! Elaine was so passionate about her city of Lucerne and shared everything she possibly could with us. She was so open and outgoing and answered all of our questions. My daughter loved Elaine too! Great way to see the city if only a short time in Lucerne!

I did a walking tour of Lucerne and had a great time. The tour guide, Eliane, was friendly and knowledgeable. The group only had 5 people in it which is great because you see lots of tours walking around d with 20 plus people. I would highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was very kind and knowledgeable. He took us to parts of the city we probably wouldn’t have seen on our own and had lots of interesting information to share. The atmosphere is very friendly and fun and we were all able to bond while on the tour. 10/10, would recommend.

Our tour guide, Luis Medina was and outstanding young man with tremendous knowledge and affability. Our group was small which made moving point to point easy. Luis demonstrated a true love for Switzerland and Luzern by his passion. We had a wonderful time with him.
