Tour: Scenic Drive in the Swiss Alps, Lucerne, Switzerland
Date: Aug 5/18

The driver took us on a long detour, which we had not requested, to see a waterfall that had dried up due to the extended drought in Europe. He clearly had not done his homework prior to driving us there. This detour caused us to miss a part of the driving tour which we had requested. My impression is that this company is primarily for driving people from Point A to Point B, NOT a tour guide company.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judith, Thank you for your feedback, which I highly appreciate. However, I guess there is some confusion, as we had a great time together in Lucerne, enjoyed our meal and continued to Lungern, Lauterbrunnen, and end up in Montreux. Once more thank you, I hope you had arrived safely. Best Regards from Bern, Johan.

On very short notice, Johan and Olga provided a wonderful tour for our family. We learned so much about Bern and Switzerland and we definitely want to come back. After the tour, we were asking about how to get to our next location, and Johan offered to drive us there, saving us many train transfers and providing great comfort, too. We are extremely happy we booked this tour. Thank you, Johan!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wendy, the pleasure was to us by having and enjoying our time together. Thank you very much and I hope we will see you again soon in order to show other amazing parts of Switzerland.

Tour: #471786, Private trip from Lucerne to discover Oberholz ab Wald, Lucerne, Switzerland    view tour
Date: Jul 17/18

Johan took my daughter and I to my family's ancestral homeland in Switzerland, about 1-1/2 hours east of Lucerne. He picked us up in a new van and gave us a pleasant ride, talking about Swiss history, the areas we drove through, and Switzerland today. When we arrived at the town, he was instrumental in finding the village's expert on our family and we were able to speak with her for a while through his interpreting. I didn't know what to expect, but it was a great trip and Johan was an excellent guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jack, Let me thank you for all those encouragements, you made my day with your supportive words. The pleasure was mine to have you and your daughter, to show you the beauty of my country and share its interesting sights. I hope will see you soon again with kindest regards from Bern.

Johan is a wonderful tour guide. He has an indepth knowledge of Switzerland as a country and also about different places. He's extremely patient and will take time out to answer all your questions. His car is extremely comfortable and well equipped. Also the tour that he designed for us is not a v popular one but one that everybody must see. You really get to glimpse nature in the rawest format. Even after the tour was over Johan answered our questions and help us with stuff unrelated to the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Namrata, thank you very much for fabulous words. It was a pleasure to meet you and enjoy such an amazing trip with hopes to see you soon again in order to discover rare and more beautiful sights of Switzerland.

Date: May 12/18

We visit the impressive city of Basel and the beautiful Colmart, passing by the vineyards of the Alsacia route of wine. Have lunch in a perfect restaurante in a small village, with tasty local meals. Johan has been a perfect guide. He knows a lot of the zone, the history, the better places to know and were to walk on tour, and he is an excelent driver (in a fabulous car) Most important is that Johan is a great guy and a fine person. We'll miss him until we return to Switzerland. Absolutely recomended

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eduardo, it was a real pleasure to met you and accompany you to this beautiful parts of Switzerland and France. Thank you for such great words and an amazing trip. I will always wait to see you again and enjoy discovering other parts of Switzerland.

Johan is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and extremely flexible to customize the tour as per our requirements. We were a family of 4 with 2 teen aged children and Johan explained the city's history and a lot of nuances about the buildings which were very educative and informative. I would recommend anytime this tour to others as in a short span of 2 hours we got to know so much about the wonderful city of Bern.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, dear Selvan, it was a real pleasure to meet you and your family. I had a great time accompanying you and hope to see you again shortly.
