This was just and excellent tour. Guide very informative and interesting. Tour party was small which made the experience all the better.
This was out of the world tour. The best experience in the entire Europe n let me tell u, you hv the best guides ever. I love them n I loved the trip!! It gave me the best day of my life !!
Really enjoyed the day! Was in a small minibus, so by the end of day we all knew each other. The scenery in this area is picture-perfect and Appenzell is a beautiful town with great character. Enjoyed the free samples of chocolate and cheese! Andy our guide was a really nice man too!
GOOD DRIVER/TOUR GUIDE COVERED A LOT OF INFO IN A VERY PLEASANT MANNER
Great, small bus and group was ideal. We had an excellent, knowledgeable driver/guide. Well worth it.
Beautiful bird's eye view of life in Swiss countryside. Bus driver/guide Ernst was very personable and informative which highlighted the day's experience.
We had a wonderful time at all the stops! We didn't stay too long at any of them, just enough time. We took this tour with a 2 year old, and she enjoyed the tour as well! We had a wonderful lunch and the tour guide was very good at showing us all the things to look at.
This had a great itinerary, good driver and a very good guide. He gave just the right amount of info and was good with advice.
It was a great trip, perfect amount of time in each place, great tour guide, overall wonderful! I'd do it again.
The driver/guide did his best to point out all the sights along the way. While the rest of the group went up Mount Santis on another tour in the same bus, my husband and I bought cheese and meat at the small factory and had a picnic with the cows along the walking trail.
Enjoyable day with a very good guide. This was a small group tour and I recommend it if you have not
been to the Switzerland countryside before.
This was a small group tour and very good, especially the cheese making event.
The country side was beautiful. Again we were left behind for 3 hours without a guide. Mr. Congrats was amazing and made our day.

Great tour with a very informed guide. Saw a lot of the countryside and the stops at the Lindt and Appendell stores were very interesting.
Our guide and driver was henry he was at is best and he kept us alive with is jokes and humor.
Trip was good. Nice to have only 15 people. Van was very nice. Expected a walking tour of Appenzel, but I guess it was not included
This was a terrific tour. Our guide's name was Konrad and he had a great mixture of historical knowledge and personal experiences he shared that added greatly to the day. He also talked us into taking the mountain excursion which was worth every extra franc. One issue I had was that the extra mountain excursion was not explained when we checked in so when I went to purchase it I was not asked if I wanted it and the viator description was not clear on that..
It made our start late on the tour.. That could have been handled more gracefully
The trip was wonderful, very well organized, excellent tour guide. However we were not aware that we could add a cable car ride to the top of a mountain, from the info from your site. So your tour description was not complete. We were able to add the extra part, so it worked out well.
Overall, trip was good. Cheese factory was a little rushed. Town was quaint and interesting. Chocolate factory gave plenty of samples, and good prices at the factory store.
Positives - The guide and bus driver were good and full of basic information about Switzerland, Appenzell etc so it was interesting. Also, we were left to our own devices most of the time and had lots of free time to wander around which we liked though this may not be everyone's cup of tea. The scenery was amazing and the guide made sure to point out to us all the interesting local sights.
Negatives - I felt we spent too much time at the Schwegalp and this was exacerbated by the fact that the cheese factory was closed - so that was a bit of a let down.
You have to like the countryside, the tour guide was great and we stopped off at a few places to break the sore bum syndrome. Recommend it.
Wonderful scenery and excellent tour guide, however, the visit to the chocolate factory a disappointment.
