All year round excursion


Sightseeing of Lucerne: Join me as we visit world-famous sights such as the Chapel Bridge with the octagonal Water Tower, the Jesuit Church and the KKL Luzern. On the tour you will learn important and humorous facts about the history of Lucerne and the everyday life of its residents. You will discover hidden alleys, visit town squares teeming with activity and even catch a glimpse of the city's crown: the Musegg Wall.

Mt. Rigi tour: After our Lucerne walking tour, we will discover the queen of all mountains: Mt Rigi!
On the top of Rigi you will enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Alps and across the whole Swiss midland. The mountain offers many hiking and walking paths. This excursion includes some time for lunch and if you wish some hiking time in the mountains. Please let me know your wishes. We could go for a short stroll up or downhill together.
Don't miss this opportunity to enjoy the mountains like a real Swiss and taste some delicious Swiss sausages and cheese.

A Recent Review of this tour

OMG!!!! We could not have asked for a better guide. Cristina was superb and was not only informative about the city and its history but was also very sensitive to what we wanted to do and see. She made great recommendations for shopping and restaurants as well as being patient with all of our picture taking. Cristina is very knowledge about Lucerne and answered many of our questions about the city and country. Cristina is definitely a "5 star" tour guide.
