    We'd booked this trip through Klook (which by the way offers great savings as well) and we loved all of it. We started from Zurich, taking a very scenic route and had a short stop at Lucerne for a little over an hour (ideally, we would have wanted it to be at least 2 hours).

    No guide is needed in that one. Just consider (Half fare day card) if you are planning for trips on different days and you can end up doing the same tours alone and cheaper with half fare day card
