What You Can Expect

4-hour Lucerne City Tour with Private Guide Including Boat Trip on Lake Lucerne

View to the city center when departing by boat

Choose a 9am or 2pm tour, and meet your private guide at your hotel in Interlaken or other conveniently located spot in Lucerne. Then, make your way into central Lucerne to begin your tour. With your private guide to lead the way, choose the route to hit the highlights you most want to see.

Perhaps stroll through town and take in top attractions such as Chapel Bridge and the concert hall designed by Jean Nouvel, and enjoy sweeping views over the pretty Reuss River to the surrounding mountains beyond. Along the way, listen as your private guide brings Lucerne’s colorful history to life.

Explore the car-free inner city circle and the Old Town, and admire houses dating back to the 16th century. Then, cross the Spreuer Bridge and stop for coffee (own expense) on the banks of the Reuss River. After the break, explore the city walls — once used to defend Lucerne from attack — and gain insight into Lucerne’s French Revolution history.

When your 2-hour walking tour comes to an end, hop aboard a sightseeing boat and head out onto Lake Lucerne. During your 1-hour cruise, gaze out over the shoreline and enjoy sweeping views over the lakeside hotels and houses.

Alight in Stansstad — a traditional village in the countryside — and switch to the train for the return journey to central Lucerne.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2017

This was not near what we expected! At best, it was second class!


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2016

Unfortunately our guide was quite shy and we didn't feel we learned a lot. We could have toured Lucerne on our own. Definitely not worth the amount of money we paid.
