What a beautiful day spent on lake zurich! Everything went so smooth - from pre trip to the trip itself and everything around. We were picked by Erik at home and were driven to the docking station - everything was on time and ready for a fantastic day. The boat is really well equipped, clean and beautiful on top of it. We wanted to have a quick bite for lunch so Erik parked the boat at the shore so we could eat on land. What a wonderful experience to arrive by boat at the restaurant. Some of us managed to go water skiing, Erik told us all about his tipps and tricks - it was amazing! This was definitely not the last time we used “My swiss lake tour”! Can only highly recommend it!

We chose the boat tour on Lake Brienz with pick-up in Zurich where we live. The driver (and later skipper! ) was on-time and soon after our family of 4 (2 adults, 1 teenager, 1 child) set out South! The day on the lake was magnificent. We spent quite some time at the Giessbach waterfalls and even went ashore to walk over the bridge. We felt like we were alone in the world in the middle of this wonderful lake. The skipper helped my husband and I try wakeboarding while my children had fun on the tube. It was so much fun! We had lunch (not included) in a nice and not so expensive small restaurant right on the lake in the village of Iseltwald which is known  as one of the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. The afternoon was punctuated by relaxing on the boat and swimming. I really recommend this activity if you like being on the water and want to do something very exclusive.

Can totally recommend this! Erik is the nicest guy you’ve ever met, he taught me wakeboarding and surfing 🏄. The boat is awesome and Erik knows the hotspots for boating. I’ve been to Zurich lake, lake Lucerne and Walensee with him. Spectacular views from the middle of the lakes 🤩 I’ve also brought my kids along and Erik has all the necessary safety equipment. If you are traveling or a local like me and look for a half day or a full day activity then book this! You will be picked up with a luxurious car, ride safely to your lake location and have a wonderful boat day with stunning views⛰ and exciting activities.
