What a lovely day! Great views, and amazing tastes of chocolate, cheese and wine. Definitely not to be missed. Also, make sure to pass by the HR Giger Museum Café at Gruyeres for an out of this world experience and unlikely in such a part of Switzerland. The Panoramic Express Train is also so lovely and worth it, shame it could not be longer.

This tour is well organized and you will have some special experience that is hardly available to normal travellers. For example, guided tour in chocolate factory, eating foundue in a local farm as well as a visit to Gruyeres. Moreover, the golden panoramic train is fantastic!

Our guide was a very knowledgeable young lady. Absolutely enjoyed the history, the countryside, and the cheese(entree, fondue and dessert)!! Even got to take a photo with the real "cheese-maker"! Great gruyere cheese! Would recommend to anyone who wants to know/live among the locals! Great gentle people proud of their heritage! The panoramic express has breathtaking views of the mountains and villages.

Enjoyed the variety of events on the tour. It was pricy but a nice full day. The train ride was less appealing depending on which side of the train you sat. The scenery was spectacular.

Antoinette was an amazing guide; very knowledgeable, professional, and fun. She speaks several languages which was wonderful.
The tours were well laid out. The chocolate factory was divine and the fondue excellent. The panoramic train ride is breathtaking.
Absolutely would suggest this tour for others. It’s small enough so you don’t feel like you’re being herded on/off the bus and you have the opportunity to get to know the other visitors.

Excellent tour and tour guide. If you had to choose between this and Day Trip to Lausanne, Montreux and Château de Chillon, I would choose this one. The experience of eating chocolate and having fondue in Gruyeres was a wonderful memory as well as the stop in Montreux (LeDeck) with outstanding views and glass of wine in hand, I never wanted to leave.

A wonderfully delicious experience! Started w/a tour of the chocolate factory and ended w/all you can eat chocolate. Lunch consisted of fondue and several yummy cheeses in an old and cozy farm. Then only about 45 mins to view the town and castle. Ended with wine at a restaurant terrace. So fun!
