The Nightwatchman was an excellent guide! Had really interesting stories and gave a very unique tour. I can’t recommend this tour enough, it was a very special and unique view of Lucerne. We had been here for a few days already and this gave us a fresh look at the city
A great tour, and highly recommended.

Ralf was an excellent guide and showed us many of the original building which are still in use today and provided insight into the lives of the early owners. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about Lucerne's history and the lives of the early inhabitants.
