Rolf was amazing. It was a drizzly evening but it didn't detract from his ability to take us back in time. He pointed out the historic buildings and explained the significance of murals, unique characteristics of buildings, historical details, putting details into perspective. Earlier in the day we had rambled through the Old Town but we had missed so many details. He used a projector to highlight aspects of history and art.. He also gave suggestions of some non tourist places to eat that would be less expensive. Great tour.

This was a great tour! Rolf was awesome- it is evident he truly loves his country and Lucerne. He provided humorous details as well as recommendations for other things to see,,, the night walk added a perfect amount of mystery to the tour...another must do especially for history buffs!!!
