Our overall experience was excellent. Our guide, Ray, was outstanding. He was extremely knowledgable, kind, and fun. My father was traveling was us and required extra assistance. Ray handled the situation seamlessly. He was an outstanding guide and the tour was exceptional.

Jonus was an excellent tour guide. Friendly, informative and helpful. If traveling in Luzerne this is probably a must see. Traveling to the peak of Pilatus was fun, easy and views were breathtaking. Finishing the tour with boat trip from the Lake was a great way to spend a half a day in this picturesque Swiss city.

Jonas was a wonderful guide. The people of Switzerland have not been impressive, but Jonas went above and beyond to be pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend him for any excursion. Thanks so much Jonas.
