Maggie our tour guide met us with a big smile which set the tone for the rest of the day, which was lovely. A short journey through the mountains in a comfortable small coach took us to Gruyere where we first of all went to the Callier chocolate factory, then onto the Gruyere cheese factory and finally to the village of Gruyere for 2 hours of free time. Both factory tours were very informative, timed well and provided generous samples of the products produced in each facility. There was shopping time in each location plus in Gruyere village. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day which was a Godsend on a Sunday where nothing in Geneva is open and we would have been wandering around with nothing to do.

Loved the open top bus. Yolanda our guide was fantastic. She shared lots of info and seemed to speak many languages so everyone felt comfortable. The tour starts at 10 which is a much easier start time and as we had 24 hours in Geneva this was the perfect tour. It is well planned and a good day out. You don't feel rushed. The weather for us was perfect, which made the scenery all the more beautiful.

We booked two trips. Yolanda was our guide during both trips. She is an an excellent guide very knowledgeable about Switzerland its history, customs, politics, wine... She answered all our questions. She is also fluent in many languages.

This tour was definitely worth it, our guide was very informative. From the moment we left Geneva, she was pointing things out all along the way - no need for a City tour after taking this! Switzerland's landscape is incredible, breath taking!

The arrangement is good and Maggie is nice.
The Gruyeres is an amazing town and the view is stunning.
The only problem was that I chose French as the language I wanted during the tour but they told me that it was an English tour and no French provided when I was about to get on the tour bus.
