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.

This tour covered the salient features of the town in 90 minutes. The guide was local and spoke excellent English. 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! We stopped at the lake, chapel bridge , mill bridge, some squares and a beautiful church. We picked up a lucerne visitors card at our hotel which saved us a... More

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!!

I would advise to start your first day in Lucerne with the city walk conducted by Swiss tourism. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. The walk is a good initiation to explore the quaint little town of Lucerne. The best way of course to click pictures, where every frame is like a painting...

Note that these guided walking tours are not available every day when not in peak travelling season. The walking tour started at the tourist information centre at the Bahnhof, and the guide took us through the Bahnhof to see the concert hall / conference centre, the Chapel bridge, the Saturday markets the church and the Altstadt.
