Horw, Luzern, Switzerland

Hi there, I'm Chris living and running tours from Luzern, Switzerland.

My aim is simply when you get out of the car after a tour, you have the feeling that you have really experienced something special and have had the best time in a very relaxed environment with a chap, in his comfy car driving round the Swiss countryside and towns.

I moved from Manchester in 2000 to Luzern and immediately fell in love with this magical place. The reason I came to Switzerland was for a job in football, my passion. At the same time, with my family, I was able to discover and explore the Lake Luzern area and over time travel further into the neighbouring Swiss regions and enjoy the stunning landscapes, culture and traditions.

3 years ago we started a holiday flat business attached to where we live in Luzern and it has been a huge success. We enjoy welcoming guests from all corners of the world and try to make them feel at home and offer advice on where to go etc. At the same time, I decided to embark on the driver/guide business and joined a local travel company, finally last year I felt confident to start my own tour guiding business which has started well.

I have a 6 seater (5 for multi-day tours) Mercedes V Class minivan and organise tours in most parts of Switzerland. Main areas covered are Lake Luzern, Bernese Oberland /Bern, Rheinfalls and Zurich. I also run Multi day tours to further a field places. I know the best places to go, which will be a mix of some tourist hot spots, you should see: However over time I have discovered some little known villages, mountain trips and local attractions. I believe I can cater for all tastes and whether you want a very relaxing or adrenalin packed time, there are options to suit. Whether it's a local bakery, a small cheese factory, a traditional farm, a bar with the best view in town for a sundowner, a convenient place to take a dip in a lake, there are multiple places in my inventory, which you can tap into - all we need to do is share what you want from the day(s) and I will tailor the experience for you. We can see and do as much as you want and therefore you set the pace.

I hope to see soon on a tour so you can fully appreciate this magical country, like I do.
