My daughter and I spent five days in the Lucerne area last summer. Each day – unique, our time was relaxing and rewarding. The best part, the three days we spent with ECHO Trails – a company offering family-friendly, guided English-speaking hiking tours in and around Lucerne. We began with Mt. Pilatus shrouded in mist; rode a cogwheel train; cruised the lake; jumped on and off gondolas; enjoyed Brunnen and the Swiss army knife experience; walked along Lake Lucerne in the footsteps of William Tell; sampled farm-fresh cheese on a mountain meadow. Each day was not just exceptional but totally unique. Rene Welti the founder ECHO Trails and our guide for two of the three trips made sure we experienced authentic Switzerland. His knowledge and enthusiasm was a vacation bonus for us. With his guidance we navigated public transportation; met local residents; sampled local cuisine (chocolate) and hiked along some of the most awesome trails in the world.
