Private tour guide Ralf

Ralf F.

Lucerne, Switzerland

I was born in 1963. As my parents were hotel keepers in Lucerne, I almost grew up at the hotel reception and I am familiar with visitors from all over the world since I was a child.

I was working 25 years in an incoming travel agency specializing in leisure and special interest tours. I have created and operated leisure tours in Switzerland and Europe, special tours for Catholics, medieval enthusiasts, art lovers etc.
In 2013 I have given up my employment and decided to work freelance only. Now I do classic Lucerne walking tours, excursions from Lucerne and Central Switzerland and the Nightwatchman Walk in Lucerne.

Lucerne is my hometown and I have very good contacts to suppliers of the travel industry all over Central Switzerland.

A Recent Review of this guide

Ralf was the perfect guide for Luzern. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to tell us wonderful stories about the city that we would have never known otherwise. I want to thank Ralf for making our day in Luzern so nice. And thank you to Tours By Locals. I have used your services many times, and I am always pleased.

I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
Even tough I also speak Italian and French I do not guide in these languages - only English and German.
