Our guide, Christiana, was wonderful! We learned many interesting stories from her about Monte Bre, the cable car, the countryside and the village of Bre. Spirited and extraordinarily competent and entertaining, she told us about earlier times and the development until today! The tour is definitely recommended!

Great value for money in just €14. You get to see Lugano from lake as well as from top of Monte Bré. You also get to visit Bré village from Funicular Ride and Wilhelm Schmidt museum.

It was very nice. Guide was very friendly and knowledgable. She told facts and stories with passion

Very nice guide. Showed everything and told about everything

When in Lugano, Monte Bre and the village of Bre is a must!
