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. She was very knowledgeable... More

I always enjoy a good walking tour and this one was no exception! Our guide was very pleasant to tour with, and led us through two hours of highlights in Lucerne. Meeting at the Tourist Information bureau at the train station and then covering most of Old Town. Reasonable cost, but do get a visitors card from your hotel to... More

What a wonderful city - joined a walking tour to get a feel for the place as we were visiting for the day from Zurich. As soon as you leave the station and cross the road at the front entrance you realise you are in a pretty and special city in Switzerland - backed by mountains and on the lake... More

Met the tour guide at the train station tourist center at 10am on a sunny saturday morning. The tour follows the red line marked on the city map so you could easily take the tour without a tour guide. On the tour was myself and a swiss couple. The tour guide presented the tour in Swiss and english so she... More
