"This is definitely the very best way to see and enjoy Lucerne. We booked through Viator because of the numerous excellent reviews. We had absolutely no regrets. Only wish we had another day with Loop Tours About a week prior to the tour, Roberto began communication via email and then What'sApp. He was detailed, responsive and so positive. From the moment he met us at the hotel(we were here only participants that day) we knew we were ready for a fun and informative morning. We had planned to meet near the train station, which is extremely easy to find. We were regaled by his knowledge and enthusiasm. Be ready for many onlooker stares...this is a novel venue for a tour. In fact, this is the only "cargo" ebike in town. We definitely saw places tourists never see. From the drive down to the homes of the wealthy to a wonderful chat with a 77 year old gentleman who swims in Lake Lucerne daily, each encounter was unique. And Roberto, what can I say. He is there to make your day complete. Accomdating, knowing lots about the local vendors(the best chocolate shoppe), and an able historian, Roberto is the consummate tour guide. Best of luck on your endeavors and expeditions"..."
