A must do tour in Lucerne. Simon was great - very informative and fun. We highly recommend this tour -- Loved all the history and insight he provided. This isn't a job for him but a passion and it showed. Great first day in Lucerne.

This was a fantastic tour and probably the best free walking tour i've done to date. Simon is a wonderful tour guide and the sites we visited, along with his commentary on Lucerne's history, made for an incredible experience
