Visiting the Lindt outlet was terrific. Went up the mountain by cable car, had lunch at the top, unfortunately it was rainy and fogged in so the views were very limited. Guide was friendly and informative.

Our driver Daniel made this a great trip. Very knowledgable and entertaining. I understand he only works one day a week, we had him on a Tuesday, so hopefully you get him too. The chocolate part was just a stop at the factory store. The cheese part was for the Appenzeller brand of cheese, which is not the traditional "Swiss" style of cheese we are used too, but still interesting. Taking the tram to the top of the Alps and overlooking mountains into Liechtenstein was beautiful. We had a very nice lunch at the restaurant on top of the mountain. Again, Daniel made every part of our tour very enjoyable.

Beautiful area. Chocolate part bit disappointing as we only could go to the shop. Company not allowed to take you in the Lindt factory anymore.

Take this tour only if you have a day to spare. You get an excellent view of the countryside. There is a quick stop at the chocolate shop and a tour of the cheese factory. Basically an overview of how cheese is made. Then up the mountain. We asked not to remain up there long as there was not much to do and the food was pricey. The cable car was fun. The town lovely to walk around in. The stores a bit pricey but this is Switzerland. As I said if you are staying for a few days it is worth it but if you had to choose I would go for the Mount Pilatus tour. Beware of the hotel pick up policy. The pick up only applies if you are staying at that hotel. We stayed next door but were refused hotel pick up.

We bought 65 Swiss Franks worth of chocolate at the Lindt factory store! The prices were definitely a bargain compared to Zurich or airport prices; great as gifts too. The scenic route to Appenzel where the cheese factory was located was a plus. We also bought Appenzeller cheeses from the cheese factory in Appenzel, so deliciously good and you get to sample many varieties. We lucked out with the Mountain because the clouds and fog came in but it was still very relaxing. The mountain goats at the top provided great entertainment. I would recommend this tour for those who want to buy chocolate and cheese and see the cheese being made.

The mountains, cheese and chocolates tour was good as the guide took good care of us. However, it would be better if more stops could be arranged at scenic places for photo taking. On the whole, we have a good experience.
