We travelled by train from Zurich (45 minutes) and on visiting the Information office at the station we were provided with a self guided walking tour brochure. We followed the suggested tour and found this very satisfying. However, it does include a steep climb to the old city wall fortifications and this can be quite testing for the less fit.

We have just done the day tour and was disappointed because if one goes from Zurich there is NO point to join the tour. You CAN easily go by train. It only takes 40 minutes. The tour took us to Lucerne and dropped us there then went on to other places with other people. We were given 6-7 hours to... More

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

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.

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.
