"We booked late and were surprised to be telephoned personally by Roberto to confirm arrangements. The tour was not quite what we expected but it was a wonderful way to have a private guided tour around the city and environs. We thoroughly enjoyed the personal touch guiding us through parts of the area we would never have visited alone, Not an Altstadt in sight but we both thoroughly recommend this tour!"..."

Swiss Knife Valley Bike Tour & Lake Lucerne Cruise
"We had an excellent bike ride with Eve! She was super knowledgable about the area, prompt, and flex able ...she showed us what we were interested in and let us skip what wasn't. We came prepared with a light rain/wind jacket and didn't let the light rain bother us. The bikes were wonderful. Perfect for normally active middle 50 year olds who don't bike often. Anyone in good health, who can ride a bike will love it! Great way to see another side of Switzerland outside of the city. The only description I would change would be that you will go to a victorianox store in the town that the factory is in. You can only assembly your own knife if you are one of the 4 people who book early for that time slot. We ended up ordering ours ahead of time, complete with engraving. Really nice knife and probably better we weren't held to an exact time to be there. The boat ride was great. We ate in the cafe on board and the staff was very pleasant . Again Eve joined us while we ate and told us more about that beautiful country."..."
