I truly enjoy travelling. Not leaving far from home, I can always discover something new about Switzerland - and am happy to share my findings with the customers.
It's a great pleasure to indulge in extensive hikes and to be at one with nature, therefore I am very glad when I can add to the excursion some nature attractions. When I visit other countries, I always try to follow the recommendations of the locals - it is always a great opportunity to learn about the new place. That's why, as a local guide, I will be very happy to share everything I have already learned myself.
About my offering for you:
With big enthusiasm I gathered my knowledge by writing a 450 page guide book, publishing monthly articles about Switzerland and by countless private trips throughout the entire country. I can help you discover all the big and the not less popular, smaller cities of Switzerland. With me, your professional guide, you will be provided with detailed background knowledge of the places we visit.
What you can expect:
I'm certain, you will not miss seeing the most beautiful sights with your own eyes. As an educated professional guide, I will be able to explain the facts and stories around the places we are going to visit.
If you have something else in mind about your visit, I am flexible to adopt our tour to your needs and interests.
The most important thing that brought me my long experience - the ability to understand from the very first minutes of communication how to please the next traveler. Knowledge and ability to present them in a most interesting and fascinating way is important. But even more important is to give a joy. Nowadays we all are working a lot and expect much from our well-deserved vacations.
As you came to Switzerland not only to learn about its history, culture, and to get acquainted with traditions, but also to relax. That's why we will visit the main sights, but we will also walk at a pace that mainly suits you. We will see all the most important things, and for architecture lovers a few more attractive structures, and for those who want to admire the panorama I will suggest that we should visit the viewpoint. Feel tired - we will make a break. If you want a cup of coffee, we will go to the best confectionery shop. Believe me, it is very important that you not only get acquainted with Switzerland, as for me it is especially important when you enjoy how you spend your vacation!
To learn about another country is a very personal subject and depends entirely on your interests, habits and preferences. There are no "rules" that have to be followed for discovering the world. When you start planning your trip, you're already building anticipation and you may have ideas about the details of this trip. Some people prefer to discover sites independently, leaving to their own luck to find the places of interest. Others can rely on the knowledge and experience of a professional guide. If this is your way and you prefer to trust to a specialist - then please contact me.

Maria accompanied us on the boat from Lucerne to Mt Pilatus and back. What a lovely day we had. Maria is very knowledgable and interesting, and a lot of fun.
