Tour: A Very Swiss Christmas, Lucerne, Switzerland
Date: Dec 12/18

Doug was fabulous - knowledgeable, punctual, flexible, and extremely considerate of all our needs and requests. It was fun traveling with him for three days, and he was so informative regarding all aspects of his country. We really felt as though we got to know Switzerland more intimately because of him. When we return to Switzerland, we hope to have him guide us again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great review Diane. I'm glad you all had a good time. I really enjoyed spending the days with you all and getting to know you. I also enjoyed seeing some things in Switzerland that I have not yet had the opportunity to experience. It was my pleasure and I hope you had a comfortable flight home. Hope to show you around Switzerland again in the future.

Doug was very flexible with what we wanted to do. He did a wonderful job of researching the area before the tour. We will definitely ask for Doug again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Cathy, I really enjoyed the day with you two. It was just as interesting for me as it was for you. It always gives me great pleasure to share this beautiful country with others. I really enjoyed showing you around your family's origins and exploring some of that history!! Until next time... :-)

I am a repeat customer of this guide due to his excellent tour of Mt. Pilatus yesterday, see review. Doug's vast exprerience kayaking makes joining this Private Kayak Tour in Lake Luzern a no-brainer. Despite sudden change in the weather, his experience and positive disposition guided me through wind and waves alike. He was very cognisant of my ability, and happily adjusted the tour accordingly. Needless to say, Doug took lots of amazing photos. Thanks again Doug, my highest recommendation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wayne, All I can say is Bravo!!! After spending the day with you the day before, I knew that we could try something a little different. You did a fantastic job! When the wind picked up and the waves got bigger, I knew we were going to be ok when I saw the grin plastered on your face. Due to the wind, it was a hard paddle back but you persevered and should be proud of yourself. I had a fantastic time!!! Thanks for the great memories!!

Tour: #405973, Half Day Trip to Mount Pilatus, Lucerne, Switzerland    view tour
Date: Aug 24/18

Doug is a fun, outdoorsy guide who really enjoys showing off Luzern's beautiful scenery. He knew Mount Pilatus like his own backyard from frequent hiking and biking. He took lots of great photos for us, and even fulfilled our dreams by finding us a couple of ibexes grazing at their usual spot on the cliffs. We were so impressed we booked another tour with him on the following day. Thanks Doug, you have our highest recommendation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Denise, It was so much fun spending the day with you and your son. I thrive off the energy and enthusiasm people like you bring on a trip. Switzerland is a beautiful country and I love seeing the joy and fascination others find when visiting.

Date: May 13/18

We had an amazing tour with Doug! It was a bit rainy, so Doug had great ideas to maximize our tour on a day when the weather wasn't going to cooperate. We took the train and saw some breathtaking mountain & waterfall views, then did a hike through a local gorge. We were able to be outside, but still kept mostly dry by the steep cliff walls & caves. The scenery was like nothing we have ever seen! Doug is energetic, super-fun and he knows the area and it's history. That's a perfect combination!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dan for the very kind review. It was a pleasure spending the day with you and Jessica. Switzerland is such a beautiful place and it is my greatest pleasure to show people around this amazing country. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip!!

Tour: Private Tour of Zurich For Low Group, Z├╝rich, Switzerland
Date: May 11/18

Doug was very patient and helpful while we were designing a private tour for our group. Although he's from Lucerne, he agreed to do our tour of Zurich for us. He planned the route to all the attractions we wanted to see. We didn't have to do much walking. Although we only had a 6-hour tour with him, he was worth every minute. He was most accommodating, jovial and easy-going. Doug also arranged a driver/car from Zurich for us. The driver was a gem too. Thanks, Doug
