What people are saying about Lucerne

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!! Words cannot describe how insane this trip was. Minu was our guide and she was simply the best. So knowledgeable and helpful. We were lucky to have a clear day where we could see all the mountains so clearly! The view up was breathtakingly beautiful! The whole day was planned out well and we throroughly loved this excursion so much. It is definitely worth the money as you see and do so much during the day. The highlight was definitely riding a Swiss train through the mountains with the most stunningly breathtaking views. 100% recommend to anyone wanting to see the amazing beauty of Switzerland !!!

What an experience! Tour ran like a well oiled machine. Guides were great. Unfortunately for us the weather was terrible (but the guides can’t control that!). We can still say we made it up the Swiss Alps!! I got quite bad altitude sickness, so if you are prone to sea/motion sickness, I would recommend getting some medication before going if possible.

Eduardo was a great guide. The trip was well-planned, and we had a great experience. One should bear in mind that we will be hitting high altitude in a short time without much acclimatisation.

The timing of the excursion was very good. It was divided very well. We did not stay for long hours in the coach. The tour guide was very helpful.

Organized tour. Happy with Minu as our tour guide. Very informative and helpful.
