I have been working in tourism since I was 22 and I am an experienced tour and city guide.
I am a well-travelled person that has always enjoyed experiencing new exciting destinations, their history and local traditions.
Since travelling is one of my passions, I have always had high respect for local advice and an 'insider insight' in local history, culture and traditions as an indispensable ingredient of a great holiday which enables the traveler to get the real feel of the destination.
I was born in Spain, but I lived in the Netherlands for 5 years and I have lived in Lucerne for the past 15 years. Lucerne is a town that never ceases to amaze me. It is clear why the tourists, especially the first time visitors, become so enchanted with its views over the Alps and the beauty of this medieval walled city; however most of them are unfortunately prone to overlook some of its most interesting and astonishing details.
My aim is to provide the visitors with an intimate experience of Lucerne so they can truly understand and appreciate Lucerne's rich cocktail of history, architecture, and breathtaking nature.
My tours are generally conducted in an informal and laid back manner as I learned that the best way to feel the destination is to simply have fun while exploring.
I am passionate about travelling and communicating with people from all different cultures. I am a friendly and cheerful person and treat my clients as if they were my friends.
If you have a bit more time at your disposal, I would suggest venturing further in Lucerne surroundings. There are diverse possibilities for half day and full day trips nearby and I will be happy to assist you in compiling a perfect tailor-made itinerary.
IMPORTANT: I may still be available even on days marked UNAVAILABLE depending on your preferred timing for the tour. Therefore, it is best to contact me and check my availability directly.
A Recent Review of this guide
Cristina was amazing. We had two teenagers with us that were tired of lots of history so she adapted the tour to a brief but interesting history lesson, a tour of the town, and some amazing chocolate and cheese tasting. She was great with the teens (and the adults) we really enjoyed her!
