It was a nice way to get the kids (5 and 7) interested in trekking around. The puzzles were fun and some were pretty simple and they could help. They also loved the little fireworks when you got it right. Even though we have been around Luzern before, we noticed new things while doing this puzzle.

Excellent tour of Lucerne with Luis!

We had an excellent experience with Luis on this tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant and he made sure every person on our tour was happy at all times. He made sure we didn’t miss anything and made an extra unplanned stop when we asked. I would highly recommend!

The phone led guided tour covered all key points on a very wet day. We discovered many otherwise hidden treasures.

Luis was great! A real enthusiast with lots a knowledge which he is prepared to share. Thanks Luis!!!

That was an excellent way to explore this beautiful city. We had such a nice time :)
