We were only in Lucerne for a couple days and wanted to make the most of our time. That is where Luis comes in. We told him a couple things we wanted to see (Mount Pilatus & Winery) with the caveat that we had our six month baby with us and he planned the most perfect day. If that wasn’t enough he took the most incredible photos to capture our memories and gave recommendations beyond our tour. I cannot recommend this enough.

The most memorable part of our day in Lucerne was the incredible views that changed as the clouds moved over Lake Lucerne and Mount Pilatus. We had a perfect day for the weather, and our guide, Luis, was well-informed and kindly took several photos of us together!
