With ever increasing numbers of (FIT) tourists travelling to Switzerland requiring more personal experiences, I thought it would be a wonderful idea to share my experiences of this enchanting country with inquisitive tourists who are keen to see the most amazing places here in a private/small group but also to show them the myriad of lakes, mountains, gorges, villages that are not in every brochure or website and which are Typically Swiss. Plus I enjoy showcasing these places to people and at the same time, ensuring that they have an enjoyable time along the way so they feel the relaxed and looked after.
Have the classic day out and contrast the history and charm of Luzern city with the stunning nature and breath-taking views of the Swiss Alps from the top of one of the Big 4 Mountains which surround this beautiful city.
Take a tour round the famous Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Luzern) taking in stops at picturesque villages such as Weggis, Brunnen, Kussnacht and Altdorf and choose from a wide selection of interesting places and historical attractions.
The beauty of this tour is that you decide where to go, simply chat to your driver/guide about your preferences and he will happily take you there.
The aim is to do as little or as much in a day as we circumnavigate one of Switzerland`s largest lakes.
Set off and go south along the lake passing Hergiswil, dropping in at the glass factory and seeing Glass blown into Kugels. Travel onto Burgenstock and see modern and old traditions side by side, walk along the Felsenweg to the 153metre tall Hammetschwand Lift offering superb views of Lake Luzern.
Journey on to learn about the historical foundation of Switzerland in 1291 at the Ruttli Meadow (accessible by boat or a one hour walk from the Seelisberg cheese factory) and learn about Switzerland`s national hero at Altdorf (where William shot the apple) and Küssnacht (where William shot his arch enemy).
Visit the Victorianox swiss army pen knife factory and Kirsch distillery in Brunnen and jump on board one of the lake cruisers for a leg on the lake and meet your driver at the next boat station. It is very much a case of if you want to stop, we`ll stop!
