Highlights
  • Lake Lucerne - Why is it so important to be on time in Switzerland? How many languages do the Swiss speak? Are we all rich? On this cultural bike tour of Lucerne, you will discover how and why the Swiss people think and behave differently from the rest of the world. All the while, cruising in and around Lucerne on our specialized electric cargo bikes. The tour has five stops, each offering a different perspective on the fascinating traditions and stereotypes of the nation and its citizens.

The tour starts at the Caritas Velostation, next to Lucerne’s Central Train Station. From there, we will ride outside of the city towards Horw, passing stunning historical buildings and continuing to an old railway track near one of the wealthiest areas of Switzerland—the not-so-touristy side of the city. As we reach Lake Lucerne, we will take a break and grab a typical Swiss snack while enjoying a magnificent view of Mount Pilatus and the stunning Swiss Alps. After enjoying the vista and taking a couple of pictures, we’ll cruise around the Horwer Peninsula along a safe street with further spots to take more photos of the impressive landscape. We will end the tour back at the Caritas Velostation, with an official immigration test, where you’ll have the chance to secure your own Swiss passport. Feel free to ask your guide for any local tips before continuing to tour the city feeling more like a local than when you started the tour.

Charming countryside tour - From the moment Roberto greeted us, I knew an adventure was ahead on our Lucerne E-bike tour. Roberto was polite and professional as he detailed the tour and got us ready to ride. During the three-hour ride, we were able to enjoy the charming communites in Lucerne, capture the Swiss Alps and Lake Lucerne as we were riding along the countryside. It was an excellent way to end our European experience and Roberto was full of fun Swiss facts with a delightful personality that made for an amazing tour. Book a Loop Tours and experience the beauty of Lucerne behind the scenes while getting up close and personal with the locals who live along the shores of Lake Lucerne. Thanks Roberto and Loop Tours for a five-star Switzerland sightseeing tour and your sweet Swiss gift at the end! Until we meet again...Cheers! PS Your dinner recommendation at Grottino was superb!

Fantastic experience and great equipment - We got in on the last tour of the year with Anthony and had a blast on the 2 hour tour. Beautiful sites, lovely roads, fun information, and well maintained equipment. The looks from passers-by were the icing on the cake. Highly recommended!

Best Lucerne Tour - Ssssoooo much fun. Tour guide Anthony was delightful. He was very friendly, enthusiastic, personable, fun, full of knowledge, a world traveler himself. Lucerne was our favorite stop in Switzerland much to his credit. The E-bike was easy to maneuver. TOTALLY recommend this tour. We are in our late 60’s and zipped around easily ❤️. Half way thru the tour we stopped for fresh water, a rest, and Anthony gave us an energy cookie. The homes along Lake Lucerne were stunning. At the end of the tour, Anthony was 1 last surprise

Great day exploring Lucerne in fresh air. - Great day with Anthony as our guide. Very informative, fun and a pleasure to be around. Bike was easy to operate and the turbo boost helped on the one or 2 little hills we encountered. Great way to enjoy the area without being i an enclosed environment like a bus etc. Great day, and suitable for all ages.

A new riding experience - This was a lot of fun. The electric bike is easy to operate and makes the hills on the loop easy to tackle. The journey takes you out of town through the suburbs and to the lakeside, then back along the lake and through some nice neighborhoods. The person pedaling definitely does all the work, but it’s not challenging with the battery support. Our guide Anthony was in great form and made our morning fun.

A Nice Laidback Tour. Great for a person with disability. - We had a very nice tour of Lucern and the lake on a tadpole tandem trike. The person in the front sits in a comfortable chair (like a chariot). The rider pedals an e-bike for both riders. The ride is mostly flat, with a lovely stretch around the lake. Roberto (owner) road with us giving interesting commentary and answering questions. There were a few climbs with a max grade of 4-6%. Easily managed with the pedal assist e-bike. It is perfect for individuals with disability or those who are not big fans of cycling but love low intensity touring. Highly recommend!
