    I booked this walking tour for the first morning I was in Lucerne. It was an excellent introduction to the city. It was interesting to learn about the history as well as what happens in Lucerne now. The guide was excellent and was able to give me information about other places to visit and trips I could do

    Cristina was fantastic. She told us about buildings and their history as we walked around and brought a flip book of pictures to help us with the history. Extremely knowledgeable and she packed so much into two hours. The tour does not go to the Lion monument or the skeleton bridge but she told us the significance and how to get there so we saw those later. She also told us how to get to the old tower walk which we did right afterwards. Lucerne is small so everything is within 20 minutes walk. Her best tip at the end was to go to the top of the Manor store (Manora) for great views and a wonderful self serve restaurant with handmade food which was surprisingly less cost than a grocery store. We ate lunch there and returned for dinner. What a great way to get oriented to this beautiful city. We also did the 1 hour boat cruise at her suggestion and enjoyed that a lot.

    Nice tour of the city, which shows the best monuments and places.

    It was a nice tour through the city, which shows the best monuments and places. Luckily, Saturday morning was as well the time for the local markets, giving the taste of all kinds of local products. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to have seen the most interesting elements of the Lucerne center.
