The views from the train are unforgettable, but oerhaps reserved seating would be better so you don’t have to sit with strangers.
My favorite part was the chocolate and fondue tasting, and tge chance to buy what you got to taste.

Yolanda our guide was great! She made the effort to bond with the group and explain the details of the attractions along the way. The picnic at the end of the trip at Lavaux was nicely done too. Well done!

Our tour guide was a lot of fun!! She was very knowledgeable about the region. The chocolate factory tour was really well done and highly recommended. At the farm/cheese maker we also did the bob sled run, which my kid loved! We included a visit to the castle at Gruyere and it was worth it. The entire day was a hassle-free way to see the best aspects of the region.

Excellent, well-coordinated tour. Packs a lot in a day - chocolate tasting at Cailler chacouterie, bread and cheese, fondue at a quaint farmhouse near Gruyere some time to explore Gruyeres and the castle on your own Golden Express train through the mountains wine tasting by a picturesque Lavaux vineyard. If you're an Alien movie fan, the Higer Bar and/or Museum is a must see in Gruyeres.

Brilliant tour. Maria our guide was very informative of the local areas of interest and also very funny and friendly. We learnt a lot about Geneva history as we travelled along which was really interesting. Instructions on where and when to meet were very clear. The farm in Gruyeres was perfect and the delicious food an unexpected bonus. Very comfortable coach ride with gorgeous views over Lac Leman and the surrounding areas. Absolutely worth every penny. Thank you x

This was a great excursion.

Maggie the tour guide was absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable.

The chocolate factory is a must do, and do is the cheese factory and tasting. We had fun churning the cheese fondue.

Kids enjoyed it.

A must do!
