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.
Excellent, perfect guide, only weather .......... Otherwise recommended for my friends.
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 started looking for organized trips during our very brief visit to Switzerland and were pleasantly surprised to find an excellent offer on your website. Booking was very easy.
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.
Weather was beautiful and we enjoyed beautiful views and our scheduled program very much
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 trip to Gruyeres was amazing, our guide was very nice and gave us a lot of interesting information. Would definitely go for a day trip with Viator again.
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.
Enjoyable full day tour. Worth going to see a bit of the countryside outside of Geneva. Gruyere was a lovely place to wander and we had a traditional Swiss meal in the sunshine. Geiger museum was also v interesting if you're in to that sort of thing
very nice tour. The tour guide was very informative and spoke in multiple languages. Is was a reasonable distance from Geneva but comfortable ride in the tour coach. The Chocolate facility (Nestle) was very professional and well timed. The Cheese factory was a brief tour but provided a good understanding of the process. I have gained a new respect for cows in Switzerland....and we toured the small/quaint town. Would recommend this tour...
The chocolate and cheese factory visits were a bit rushed, but very fun. The drive was beautiful and the guide was very friendly. I really enjoyed exploring the medieval town on top of the hill! Beautiful day and wonderful experience!
I really enjoyed this tour. The cheese and chocolate factories were fun, and the medieval town was beautiful. However, instead of stopping on the way home to have a drink at that bar with the view, I would have preferred more time in the medieval town.
Very enjoyable day, guide and driver excellent, would certainly recommend to a friend.
It was fine, but I would have like to see an artisanal chocolaterie instead of this big factory own by Nestlé. On the other hand, our guide was very informative and nice.
The tour was good except the free time allowed at the Gruyere village for lunch and castle visit is too short. We were only give 2 hours for that. We can either choose to have lunch or visit the castle, no time for do both. if another half to an hour more would be great.
Great tour, well worth it. Loved the scenery, fantastic driver. Both the chocolate experience and the cheese tours were good. Our tour guide didn't really speak that much, felt there was more information he could have told us along the way. Lunch at Gruyeres having fondue and it snowed.
The chocolate factory tour was fun, and there was lots to do/see in Gruyere. I particularly liked the Tibet museum. The cheese tour was a bit of a let down as I expected more but all in all a great day.
I was expecting an English speaking tour but the guide gave all comments in French then Spanish and finally English. By that time we had usually passed the point of interest. The most interesting part was the castle in Gruyeres but we had the least time there. Would have been nice to have an extra 45 minutes there.
