Our family of five did a customized tour of Lucerne with Nicole. We didn't want a normal city tour but one that would keep our teenagers engaged. Nicole showed us the city but also brought us to a great bakery for sweets and an exquisite cheese store. Nicole was a great guide and we truly enjoyed our informative yet creative tour together!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice review. I enjoyed it very much with you and your family. And I loved to see your faces, when you had the first bite of the cake and cheese;-)

Nicole was simply amazing. She is friendly, intuitive and flexible for anybody looking to "learn the ropes" of Lucerne and area. We went to Mt Rigi and still had time for a tour of Lucerne' 0ld city. She will give you suggestions for your stay, places to see transportation suggestions and tips on how to avoid the crowds for a true Switzerland experience. Highly, highly recommend !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Pete. It was pleasure to spend the day with you and your family. Hope my suggestions will help to have a wonderful week in Switzerland.

We chose the tour "Off the beaten path" with Nicole and it was everything we expected and more! Not only did we avoid the crowds but we were led through fields and pastures straight out of a movie set! Swiss cows with bells serenaded us along the whole walk! There were ample stops for hydration and refreshments. Nicole was very knowledgeable about her country and supplied all the information to make this day one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend her and this chosen trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very happy, that you've choosen this tour and that I was able to show you the real Switzerland! It was very nice hiking with you off the beaten path. Thank you!

Family of 6 ranging 13, 20's to 56 all had the very best bike ride adventure ever! Thanks to Nicole for making this tour available.It is an adventure and the best way to see the beauty of Switzerland. We even had a picnic by a waterfall & later a very delicious lunch by one of the lakes we visited. Nicole made sure we were safe and adjusted our bike tour based on our ability. We rode our bikes to green fields, colorful flowers,mountains,lakes, fairytale houses. Wish we can return someday soon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really hope you will return one day. I would love to bike again with you and your family in Switzerland. There are many more great trails....Thank you all for making it a wonderful biking day!

We are a family of 6, & we all rate our tour with Nicole a Perfect 10! Because of her, we were able to maximize our time, & even with the fog, she managed to guide us to some amazing breathtaking views! I am fearful of heights & would not have hiked so high up to the peak without Nicole by my side. We all just loved the whole experience! Did so much that day, ate good food too. Highly recommend her. She is patient, fun and knowledgeable. Happy that we also booked a bike tour the following day with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, you're a great family and I had a lot of fun with you exploring Central Switzerland.

Nicole was an excellent guide - she worked with us to make our tour work well with our schedule and went well out of her way to help in making one of her normal tours into a special occasion. She was engaging, friendly, and incredibly knowledgable about Switerland and the local area, which saved a day that could've been ruined by bad weather. I would absolutely recommend her for any of her tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brian. I hope you had your special day in Interlaken or Zermatt with hopefully good weather and perfect views.

Nicole arranged a half-day hike for our family to Mt. Pilatus. She met us at our hotel, got us there by bus and hiked with us (we are all adults). We didn't have to figure anything out. She knew the trails and gave us wonderful information as we hiked. The scenery is gorgeous! We passed grazing cows with their cowbells ringing and sheep in green meadows. Thanks Nicole for making our first day in Switzerland a treasured mem

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much and thank you for your visit. I enjoyed it very much to explore the less known part of Mt.Pilatus with you.

We engaged Nicole B for a private tour of Mt Titlis and we are so glad we did. She provided us with expert knowledge and saved us precious waiting time. We have travelled over 6 weeks and visited many countries through Europe, and we all agree that this was one of the best days of our trip, leaving us with everlasting memories. Thank you Nicole and hopefully we will be back soon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the nice feedback. I had a lot of fun in the snow with you and your family. Hope Spain was also a success, specially for your daughter. Looking forward to see you again in Switzerland.

She's very helpful, cheerful, patience, highly organize & knowledgeable. Even after our 2-day trip with her, she layout an excellent train itinerary so can visit other Swiss cities. I highly recommend Nicole to my friends and family who would like to visit Switzerland. She made our Switzerland trip very memorable. The best vacation ever!!!

We had 3 wonderful days with Nicole in November. On our first day, we hiked on Mt Rigi through the snow to an isolated house which served as a combination cheese production facility and fondue restaurant. The next two days we explored Locarno on the shores of Lake Maggiore and Zermatt, the ski village in the shadow of the Matterhorn. Nicole was a great guide and a joy to be with. We were sorry to leave her. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this kind review! I enjoyed the 3 wonderful days we had together and I'm happy that we we're able to get the best out of the not always best weather...I'm grateful to have such wonderful guest like you.

Nicole was not only a guide but became a friend. A #1 tour by a local who grew up in the region. She knows all the tricks of a local but more important knew exactly how to make the trip up the mountain first by boat then cogwheel train. Hiked around the top with her knowledge of where to go, and a gondola ride down. We had a wonderful day with Nicole

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review!

Date: Aug 25/16

Nicole is delightful and we had a perfect outing for us. The chocolate visit was great fun, and we got to make our own chocolates and of course bought some extra. The walk along the Lake on a beautiful day was just what we needed after all that delicious chocolate. The cheese tasting was enjoyable, and I can recommend the red wine. We now have lots of information about places to visit and how to do it. I would recommend taking this tour day 1 so you can get a good orientation for other days in Lucerne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I'm happy that I was able to show you a part of Lucerne and to help you with organising some selfguided tours. I'm sure you'll have a great time in the mountains,enjoy!

The day of our scheduled tour/hike was a bit rainy but that didn't stop Nicole for even a minute and she created the perfect excursion for us which ended with sunshine and a fabulous view of Lake Luzern and the city. She was invaluable in helping us buy the train tickets we would need for the next 2 days and laying out the many hiking options that were available. She showed us the beauty of Switzerland away from the mass tourism spots. We will never forget our trip, thanks to Nicole.

Nicole is a gem that made our time in Lucern exceptional. Very knowledgeable about the area and culture. None of us spoke the language or were familiar with bus and train stations in Europe so Nicole took the stress out of our day. (She speaks 4 fluently). She customized our tour to include visiting the canton from which ancestors lived. We parted with hugs for we truly found a friend in Lucerne.
