    So many things packed into one day! First of all, our tour guide (Maggie) was excellent - very knowledgeable, kind and well organized. The chocolate factory was excellent, as was the cheese factory. Fondue up in the mountains was great too. It was overcast, so the view on the train was not as good as I hoped and the visit to Gruyeres was chilly, but we can't control the weather.

    The view is stunning. We had a great time to learn the history and tastes some great samples. It was fun. We enjoy the whole trip. Thanks!

    Yolanda and Xavier were great. Really enjoyed the tour. The included activities were informative about the culture. The views of the vineyards was awesome.

    Day well spent with a great guide (can't remember lady's name correctly - Orlanda) and driver (José)
    Cailler chocolate factory was great if you are a big fan of Swiss chocolates.
    Gruyere factory was not that much interesting.
    Lunch (if selected as part of the package) was excellent (Cheese Fondue).
    Train ride on the panoramic train is worth doing as well.

    Had a spectacular time! The sudden snow was unexpected but created a beautiful landscape. Yolanda was a great guide. Well worth the money to have a hassle-free trip.

    The tour guide and the driver were both professional, knowledgeable and friendly taking us to all the places as advertised with the exception of a wine tour. Don’t be misled with Viators advertisement stating that a wine tour is included, it is not.

    Long stay in the bus but in average it was a nice journey we would lone to have more time in the places that we visited

  • 19-Jul-2018

    An excellent full day trip of cheese and chocolate tasting. The tour was 40 people on a very comfortable bus with a very knowledgeable tour guide. During the ride there were excellent views of the Swiss countryside. At the chocolate factory there was a fun interactive tour followed by all you can eat chocolate tastings. Then an immersive cheese tasting with fondue at an alpine dairy farm.

    We just got home, and we are still talking about, and sharing the pictures taken on this Tour! Key Tours does it right, and we highly recommend this tour if you get a chance to take it!
