    Great tour of the chocolate factory, views from Gruyère breathtaking, coach driver entertaining, great value

    Great day trip experience! The chocolate tour was by far my favorite while the cheese tour was a bit lackluster. It is helpful to know when booking through Viator you are not given the additional add-ons automatically. For the cheese tour, the rest of the group will eat fondue at the restaurant while you are given your cheese sample and taken to Gruyere to explore and eat (I actually preferred because you then receive 2 hours to explore vs. 1). You also will not already have a ticket for the train purchased near the end of the day. You can either purchase your ticket there or choose to ride on the charter bus. Fun experience overall and I do recommend

    Very poor instructions on where the Geneva bus station is, there is no address. Once you arrive there is also no information as to what the name of the bus is to board. When calling the trip advisor for it , all she said was “you were supposed to look for the Gruyeres bus and board it” I responded there was no instructions , nor any communication with the tour guide. The bus ended up leaving us behind. I asked for a refund as there was poor communication and she said no and there was nothing else said. Would not recommend, very poor customer service. Attached is a photo of all the directions given at time of booking.

    I definitely recommend this trip for any newcomers to Switzerland! The tour guide was very friendly, and the tour bus was very nice.

    Babis was an excellent bus driver and tour guide, very knowledgeable, very kind, very personable, all you could ask for really… The tour itself was great, the region was magnificent, amazing scenery, and more wine, cheese, and chocolate than any reasonable human being needs.

    Our driver was informative and entertaining. He kept us advised of the highlights and some things that seemed trivial but were very interesting with some historical facts to back them up.

    Amazing time exploring a medieval village followed by scrumptious cheese and chocolate and fabulous views from Mt. Moleson. Our tour was changed due to road closures by the Tour de France but it ended up being better than the original tour. The views from the top of Mt. Moleson were breathtaking. Our guide, Babis, was informative, friendly, and a joy to get to know. We truly had a fabulous day.

    Chocolate factory definitely the highlight. Never saw a chocolate waterfall before. The castle was amazing. As was the village.

    Firstly the chocolate tour was amazing. The cheese tour was so so. The cheese they gave out was gross. The castle and town tour tho- that was awesome. And we we were pleasantly surprised there was the HR Giger museum in the town!
