Giogorio was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable, kind and funny. The Lugano and Morcote areas are gorgeous. We especially loved Morcote, it’s a beautiful village and photos do not do it justice.

Giorgio Ghidotti gave us a wonderful guided tour of Lugano, Morcote, and Parco Scherrer. He was very knowledgable of the area, explained the many things we saw in Lugano, and afterwards took us for a comfortable ride down to the extremely picturesque town of Morcote. This town was named one of the most beautiful in Switzerland in 2016. And the highlight of Morcote was visiting Parco Scherrer. Textile merchant and art amateur Hermann Arthur Scherrer purchased the house and a hectare of land on a hill in Morcote. Following years of work, the hillside and terraces were slowly covered in cypresses, camellias, camphor tress, eucalyptuses, cedars, palm trees and bamboo woods – exotic and oriental plants that Scherrer had admired. And even more amazing are the architectural and artistic works such as a Siamese tea house, an Egyptian temple and Greek sculptures. Not only was this a beautiful visit, but Giorgio was great in helping us navigate the rock steps up the back of Parco Scherrer to a beautiful little church and then a short walk to where he picked us up in the car to take us back to our Lugano hotel. All in all, this was a wonderful trip, made even more special by Giorgio's kindness, generosity and assistance in showing us this beautiful place. A tour with Giorgio as your guide is extremely highly recommended.

We visited many historical areas in Lugana and Morcote, most of which you would never know where there by just walking around. There were many beautiful churches and painting that were hundreds of years old.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour! My husband and I loved the sites and stories of places we visited. Both Lugano and Morcote are must-see places in this side of Switzerland. Gorgeous lake views! Our energetic and knowledgeable guide, Gio, took time in showing us around and was attentive to our needs.
