Luis was very knowledgeable and great historian, my family LOVED him. The only downfall was he instructed us to get onto the wrong boat, so instead of a sightseeing boat ride we were on the ferry.

The walking tour was excellent. Louis is very informative, funny and he moved at our pace. Highly recommend it. The boat tour was very good. Getting a view of the villages from the lake was great. I took some amazing photos.

We started our Europe trip in Luzerne with a guided walking/boat tour. Our guide Luis was exceptional, he was well informed and brought us to locations in the city we may not have found on our own. I highly recommend this or any other for with Luis. A wonderful time!

Luis was FANTASTIC! Very easy to understand and enthusiastic and friendly. He seems to love what he is doing and answered any questions we had. It was a bargain! We felt like we learned so much in a short time. What a great city. Thank you Luis! Dan and Shelle Jensen, Leawood, KS

Great tour and great guide! Luis took us through Lucerne showing us and telling us about its rich history. I really enjoyed the walk and felt like the tour was really well done! He knew the best spots for pictures and showed us more than I expected. I would recommend this tour and Luis as a tour guide to anyone!
