Cristina was an excellent guide. Knowledgeable, very friendly and absolutely wonderful with my 2 granddaughters. She adjusted our tour perfectly to fit our needs and interests. She also recommended things for us to do for the rest of our visit, which was highly useful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, Thanks for your rating. I had a wonderful time with you last Monday. Your granddaughters are very sweet and smart. I wish I could have meet you on Wednesdays with my own kids but something came up. I thought it was really cool that we had the keys to the city walls just for ourselves ;) Enjoy the summer and take care of yourself. Cristina

Cristina was fabulous - so informative and engaging and fun. She made Lucerne come alive for us. Our group had a man who wasn't able to keep up a walking pace with the rest of the group - so Cristina went out of her way to get all of us bus passes so as to keep the walking distance more manageable for this man. . . Wow. . . A million thanks to you Cristina.

Taking a tour with her is like visiting a friend who is so proud of her city and country that she cannot wait to share them. She knows the history and anecdotes to make the tour both interesting and informative. HIGHLY recommend that you engage her to maximize both your understanding and enjoyment of your visit.

Cristina provided my wife and I a wonderful walking tour of the sights and highlights of The Old Town of Lucerne. She was highly informative of the history, social life and architecture of the town, and her enthusiasm and love of the town is infectious. Her tour was one of the highlights of our Swiss vacation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lee and Yolanda With guests as nice as you it is really easy to provide a good tour. (Even in the rain) Enjoy your holidays!! Cristina

My friends and I booked Cristina for a 3 hour walking tour of Lucerne on August 26th. She bonded with us immediately and gave us so much history! She suggested we go to Burgenstock Resort by boat and enjoy the afternoon and the views. OMG! The day was amazing and the views unbelievable! We LOVED her! The suggestions she gave us were spot on and we loved her friendliness, knowledge and love of the city. We loved the city as well and are planning on returning someday soon! Thanks Cristina for everything!

We (family of 4 including 15 & 11 year old) had the best time with Cristina. We learned a lot about Switzerland as a whole but really loved the walk around Lucerne; it was a perfect way to start the day. And her chocolate recommendations were spot on...we bought so much chocolate :) We took her recommendations on our afternoon without her, lunch, sights, cheese shop and hiking for the next day (Rigi Kulm to Rigi Kaltbad via longer path for good mountain food). Very knowledgable and fun to be with!

A wonderful day visiting Titlis was even more wonderful with Cristina as our guide. Met us at our hotel & escorted us to the train station to make sure we got the cheapest train tickets possible. Her knowledge & insight easily rivaled (and often exceeded) other guides we had in Switzerland. 2 weeks later after an amazing rest of our vacation, we're still talking about our tour with Cristina! HIGHLY recommend her for anyone looking for a wonderful tour guide!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much!! Next time we’ll go skiing together. Best wishes from Switzerland!!

We had the BEST day with Christina. She was fun, informative, and flexible. She brought Swiss chocolates and fresh apple juice, and gave us great recommendations as well as insight into everyday life in Lucerne. It would have been very difficult to navigate the multiple modes of transportation and timeline of our fun-packed afternoon. A wonderful boat ride, train journey up the mountain, and a hike tailored for the least agile of us (me!) gave us breathtaking views and wonderful memories

We changed the tour to Mt. Pilatus at the last minute and Christina was brilliant not only for her flexibility but her engaging personality combined with exquisite presentation of information. Intelligent, personable, humorous and knowledgeable characterize her abilities as a tour guide. If we could give her more stars we would. Clone her and spread her throughout the company!!!

Cristina gave us a great tour of Lucerne. She's very talkative and told us all about the history of Switzerland and Lucerne. She walked us all through the old town and fort remnants and had many interesting stories about buildings, murals, influential people, etc. We enjoyed talking to her about living in Switzerland and what it's like to raise a family there. Overall an enjoyable and informative three hours that went by very quickly. Highly recommend Cristina.

Sorry this has taken so long to write: Our trip to Europe began with our tour to Lucerne with our wonderful tour guide. She was remarkable & very exciting to be with. She took the time to detail all aspects of the city, its history, its wonderful personality, and special points of interest during our time with her. The time was sufficient, & she did not make us feel she was rushing. This is a great way to see the sights ans wonders of such a beautiful city. Kindest regards, Ed & Sherie Seegmiller

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!

Cristina is very energetic and spoke English well. She gave us great suggestions on places to visit on our own and thankfully recommended we change our personal itinerary to avoid large touristy sights. The cheese shop was excellent and she shared her personal favorite chocolate shop with us. Cristina definitely loves Lucerne and her passion comes through in her demeanor. She pointed out various sights within the city and even recommended excellent restaurants. We enjoyed our tour with Cristina.

We have traveled all over Europe and Cristina was one of the best guides we have ever had. She treated us like family and was very patient with our youngest son. If you are looking for a guide for Lucerne- look no further- Cristina is a treasure! We did the Mount Pilatus Golden Tour and it was breathtaking. For sure, the highlight of our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your kind words Libby. You have an exceptional family. Best wishes to all of you, Cristina
