A heartfelt thanks goes to the tour guide Ferdinand of Get your guide tours who took us to an amazing day tour to Lucerne and to Mount Titlis. Ferdinand is very professional and has an extensive knowledge. He made our day very special and we highly recommend him.
The check in process was quite confusing and chaotic, but once we were checked in everything was wonderful! The tour guides were friendly, informative and kept the group on point !
Wonderful! Well paced, organized and informative. Peter was easy to follow, thoughtful and funny. Even better than I expected. And of course the mountain was AMAZING!!!
Only problem was that even airport police did not know of the location the voucher directed us to. Should say something like "Greeting lounge just past Customs."
I Lost My phone in the river so be careful... but was Amazing
