5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This was a last minute tour decision but it was an excellent tour and history of the original city of Lucerne. Ralf was an excellent guide and showed us many of the original building which are still in use today and provided insight into the lives of the early owners. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about Lucerne's history and the lives of the early inhabitants.


4 star rating: Recommended June 2016

Very well done! A lot of history by a knowledgeable Watchman. A little gory at times, but overall good synopsis of the city's past.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2016

The tour was a good orientation to the city and we did learn quite a lot about the history of the city right up to the fairly recent burning of the covered bridge and its restoration. The guide/watchman walked a bit to fast for me, but it was not a major issue.
