Honestly, an amazing experience! My guide Nina, was vibrant, knowledgable, and friendly. She was very relatable and had a lot of information about Interlaken, especially since she was born there. During the tour, I found out a lot of information about swiss food and culture, while tasting a lot of chocolate and cheese. If you find yourself in Interlaken, this is a must!

This was a great WALKING tour. Take a large bottle of water with you! We had the sweetest guide. She was very knowledgeable on Switzerland facts. We took a walking tour where we went to a cheese maker shop and learned about how cheeses are made locally and what qualifies as Alp cheese vs mountain cheese. Then we had samples. Next stop was a chocolatier where we learned about different chocolates and had samples of Swiss made chocolate using milk from happy Swiss cows. Of course we bought some to take home. Then we headed over to a wood carvers shop. We learned about this local woman's technique which is just amazing. We picked up some carvings. Finally we headed to a working farm where we learned about milking and got to sample fresh milk from a milked cow that morning - it was amazing and so creamy. We tried cheese made on the farm too. We saw a lot of the city with stories about its history from our guide. Although this seemed more like an advertisement for specific cheese, chocolate and wood carving stores, we still enjoyed it very much. The samplings were very good also! Our daughter enjoyed the working farm and petting/feeding the cows the most. We loved the interaction at the chocolatier's store. It was a dangerous place to be with all the yummy chocolates! Definitely put a dent in my wallet with the treats we brought home.

I'm so glad that we went out of our way to do this tour. Viktor was an amazing and knowledgeable host who made us feel comfortable right away. While the chocolate and the cheese were delicious, what we really loved was hearing his perspective on living in Switzerland.

The highlight of our tour was our two very nice guides. We stopped by a local cheese shop, chocolate shop and took the public bus to the farm to see some cows and try some fresh cheese and milk. It was a great experience, but we weren't taken back to our drop off point, we were left at the bus stop we arrived to the farm at, on our own to take the bus back into town. It wasn't a problem for our group but I think it was a reckless way to end the journey for less experienced traveler.

Tasty chocolate. Tasty cheese. Both in a store. Did not see actual making of either. Tour of William Tell open air theatre. Okay. No woodworking shown. Taste of non-pasteurized milk. Nice. Saw cows at a farm. Nice walk. Easy local bus use. Enthusiastic young guide. Meh!

I don't know. They take you to a cheese store, a chocolate store and a wood carving shop. Basically a shopping experience. The last. Stop is a dairy farm. The good part of this tour was the last part. You have to get on a bus and leave the tourist area so you see parts of Interlaken you might never see otherwise. The guide leaves you at the bus stop and its up to you to find your way home. The good news is that nearly every bus line passes a train station.
