I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had the BEST day with Christina. She was fun, informative, and flexible. She brought Swiss chocolates and fresh apple juice, and gave us great recommendations as well as insight into everyday life in Lucerne. It would have been very difficult to navigate the multiple modes of transportation and timeline of our fun-packed afternoon. A wonderful boat ride, train journey up the mountain, and a hike tailored for the least agile of us (me!) gave us breathtaking views and wonderful memories
