I got on the train in Basel and met Andrea at the train station in Lucerne. He was waiting for me as I got off the train which was comforting since I've never been to Lucerne, was only there one day and didn't want to try to find my guide. Andrea took me on a tour of the whole city,... More

We signed up for this tour at the Tourist Information Center in the train station. Our tour guide was very good and very iinformative. It was raining, but she did not lose her enthusiasm. Also, the Tourist Information Center was incredible - probably the nicest people at any Tourist Information Center that we went to in Europe - and we... More

I have actually been on this tour twice with two different guides and both were excellent. You get a very good view of Lucerne past and present by starting at the train station and ending in the old town. After the tour, it is easy to know which sites you want to see and how to manage your time in... More

I found this to be a very good walking tour. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable about the history of the area and what it meant for the people in the surrounding areas. It was a little fast paced but well worth the effort.

We could learn the brief history of the city itself as well as a story about most of the city's popular tourist' spots. We purchased a combined ticket of a walking tour and lake Luzern cruise tour and a boat tour was also entertaining.

Hit most of the highlights as it is not that large of an area. Went back on our own based on tour and enjoyed it even more.

This is through lucerne tourism office at main train station. I think it was €40 francs for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Went for about 2 hours and Lea was our very charming, entertaining and well informed guide. We thought so much of her that when the Americans tipped her at the end, we did also. (Even though it is...

We took this tour on a Monday morning. And there was only one other person on the tour so it was like a private tour. This is a must do!

If you are visiting Switzerland you can not miss the romantic city of Lucerne! Get lost in the streets downtown, shop for souvenirs, walk on the walkway across the river, have a tour on the boat, enjoy the waterfront along the lake... Nice and romantic!!
