Good audio tour and really well done to understand the making of the Cailier chocolate in Switzerland! A guided and audio tour gave you quite a comprehensive history of chocolate making in Switzerland. There’s free sample of chocolate for you to eat and can hit your sugar quota very fat for the day. Lovely chocolate factory an worth a visit if you are in town!
This is definitely a "must do" when you come to Switzerland! The interactive chocolate tour is very informative and entertaining! The first half takes you on a historical adventure at a set pace, with the second half of the tour done through a personal head set describing the chocolate making process. At each point you can scan a bar code and hear about that particular machine or ingredient! The final stage of the tour is definitely the best: the chocolate tasting. Each ticket is CHF 12, but of your group is larger then 10 people you get a discount. I highly recommend getting there as soon as the factory opens (10 am) otherwise waiting times get up to about 2 hours. The tour is available in many languages, not just French and German.
Great and fun experience. You start with a every informative tour of the chocolate history. Then you move to the production line to see how Cailler Chocolate is made. Next is the Chocolate tasting tour where you can try a big variety of Cailler products. Finally, you go to the shop where you can buy all kinds of Chocolate which make a great gift idea from Switzerland. There is also a good coffee shop in the factory.
This place was just awesome. The tour of the factory was both fun and informative. It takes you through some history behind Cailler and that of chocolate. The end though, can not be superseded as you get to eat as much chocolate as you want. Great experience not only for kids but for adults as well! :)
It was a good visit and tour but, I expected more from it. Unfortunately we couldn't make our own chocolate, we needed to book it online (no chance of doing it onsite). We could barely see the factory itself, most of it was shown through TV short clips. You get to taste though some of their chocolate
