Had a great day with Andre Transportation schedule , area history , terrain knowledge and patience were all just great. Would surely use local guides and request Andre again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: many thanks, Dear Michael, for having booked my guidance at Mount Rigi. Apologies for the delay of the usually on time Swiss train and the slippery trail. It was a great day with you and you had been so lucky with the weather. Hope to see you again in Switzerland!

Andre is so knowledgeable; and is so easy to spend time with. He walked us around while conveying interesting information without overloading us. We took in some cool facts along with seeing very neat sites. Andre also gave us some good tips on how to spend the rest of our time in Lucerne (tip: those 1 hour boat rides aren't worth it). Andre is a great guide that I will book for other tours on my next trip to the area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Dear Peter, Thanks for having booked me as your guide. It was really a pleasure to Show you Lucerne. Hope to see you again in Switzerland. All the best and cheers from Lucerne, Andre

André was a fantastic guide. He picked us up at our hotel and we reviewed the plan for the day on a scenic boat ride. André tailored the schedule for us and was adaptable to our skill level. We learned about the area, the mountains, and the trails and had time to exchange stories throughout the day. As a side note, several times during the day André presented us with a choice. I found myself saying, "I trust you, André". As a result, we had a life changing experience!

André was very knowledgeable about the sites he took us to and went along at a very comfortable pace. We asked a lot of questions and he answered each one thoughtfully and thoroughly. We asked so many questions that it slowed the tour down, but he graciously finished it (adding an additional 40 min that he never mentioned, nor requested additional payment). We thoroughly enjoyed André's company and would hire him again without question!! Thank you André for a wonderful tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzie, many thanks for your Rating, it was a pleasure to guide you through Lucerne. All the best and hopefully see you another time in Switzerland, André

André was a great guide helping us see as much of Zurich, Titlis, and Lucerne in one day. With an easy pickup from the airport, our fun day began. He was very accommodating and friendly. André knows so much about the Swiss Alps and it really added to our drive as he pointed out notable summits and talked about hikes and interesting facts about each. We would highly recommend André as a local guide.

We spent the day with Andre going up Mt. Pilatus. He is an experienced climber and has vast knowledge of Mt Pilatus. Even though it was rainy and cloudy most of the day, we made the best of it and enjoyed our day. He was flexible and made suggestions that made our trip memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: For me it was a great day too and my compliments to your patience with the weather. You did very well hiking and showed a lot of passion for our nature.

Tour: #429846, Half day hike to Buochser Horn, a fantastic viewpoint above Lake Lucerne, Lucerne, Switzerland    view tour
Date: Aug 1/18

Seven of us (ages 21 to 61) hiked Buochser Horn. Andre was extremely knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and was a fabulous guide. The last 30 minutes of the 3 hour ascent was tough, but Andre was very patient and didn't rush us at all. Scenery was absolutely breathtaking! The hike was the highlight of our vacation. Bring lots of water, some food, and wear good hiking shoes (steep inclines). We ended with beers and lunch in the local village/monastery. THANK YOU Andre- we miss you already!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Diane, many thanks for your feedback and having booked me as your tour guide. I really enjoyed you and your Family as Clients on the hike. Sorry for the confusion with Food and time, you are right, this needs some improvement.I hope you could enjoy your Holidays as expected and would be very pleased to see you again on another tour. Certainly I can also offer you then some taylor-made hike or excursion. All the best and cheers from Switzerland, André

We had a great walking tour in Zurich. Andre is an expert in hiking but he was happy to take me a my 10yr old son on a leisurely stroll around town . We had lunch and then we went back to our hotel where we picked up our bags and he took us on the train to Basel where he took us on another stroll of the city. He is very accommodating to your particular interests so there is no rigid schedule unless you want one I suppose. Next time we would book him to go hiking on some of those beautiful mountains.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for hiring me. You were really easy and friendly travellers. I enjoyed guiding you a lot. All the best and hope to see you again!

Andre was an incredible guide! I highly recommend using him if in or around the Lucerne area and interested in a good hike. He was great to hike with as he has a wealth of information about the mountains and history of the area. He took the time to understand what was important to me and our hike ended up hitting on all my primary objectives :) It was one of my most memorable days traveling ever! I can't recommend him enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Julie for your Rating. It was a great pleasure for me guiding you and showing you our wonderful nature. Hope that you have time to come another time to Switzerland!
