Overview

Lucerne is probably the most famous Swiss city. Surrounded by mountains and at the end of Lake Lucerne, the city is the starting point for numerous excursions.
The Lucerne cityscape is characterized by the covered, medieval Chapel Bridge, which, with its gable paintings, is one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe. Another landmark of the city is the Musegg Wall, which has been preserved in its original fortified form with the exception of one tower.

Historic houses decorated with frescoes line picturesque squares in the car-free old town, such as the Weinmarkt. Lucerne is a city of squares and churches. The Jesuit Church from the 17th century is considered the first sacred baroque building in Switzerland and the two towers of the Hofkirche are an integral part of the cityscape. The dying lion, which was carved into the rock to commemorate the heroic death of the Swiss who fell in the Tuileries in 1792, is one of the most famous monuments in Switzerland.

We visited Lucerne again and it was a perfect tour about the time & distance. We got the overview about the historic city and we're happy that it was a small group tour without using headphones and just walk in a line. We were just 6 on this tour and it was easy to have a personal exchange with the funny tourguide.

Our tour guide was so great. He did a great job. Our only criticism is not about him, but the "cruise on Lake Lucerne" is not what I would consider a cruise of the lake at all. It was a ferry ride to drop other patrons off at another stop and then came back. That is not a "touristy cruise" - it was just tagging along on a passenger drop off.

Martin was our guide and was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was great getting a view of the city from a local perspective. He was able to explain what we saw and give us the history and cultural background. Really enjoyed our time with him.

Tour director needs a microphone and audio should be provided- difficult to hear. We skipped the walking tour and only did the boat cruise at the end which we would not recommend- not enough outdoor platforms. Abraham was knowledge . Also website said 2 hr tour but told more like 4hrs.
