Conrad was a wonderful guide with a great sense of humor. Lucerne was beautiful. We walked through the covered bridge, took a beautiful lake cruise, and enjoyed good food and a yodeling concert!

Lucerne Day trip was fantastic

Much to our surprise we actually had a tour guide in Lucerne even though the description said we would be on our own. Our guide (Ralph) was extremely knowledgeable and walked us smartly to all the highlights - he gave us time to have lunch on our own and free time after he had pointed out all the highlights. He made it an absolutely delightful day.
Lucerne Day trip

While we absolutely loved getting to visit Lucerne and would go back for a visit in a heartbeat I honestly think you should just take the train over yourself and not even bother with going with this tour. We were happy to get to have 6 hours to ourselves getting to do whatever we wanted through the city, that is why we booked the tour but all it really was, was transportation. What really disgusted us with the trip was when we arrived at the meeting point before we were sent off from the “tour guides” we asked MULTIPLE times if we would meet at this point so we could pin the location on our phones for an easy way to get back when it was time to leave. We arrived 15 minutes early and the only person to show up was the one other person in our group. (This tour bus had about 4 different tours going on) we waited together and nobody showed up when all of a sudden we saw our bus fly past and go way up the street a far walk from where we were told to meet. When we looked up the street all of the guides and all of the other people on the other tours were waiting to get on the bus. So to sum it up they told us the wrong meeting point or just never bothered to let us know that it was maybe changed and the guides did not care one bit if we were left behind. Again. We wanted time to explore and got that, but could have easily just taken a train for ourselves.
