What You Can Expect

Bern Day Trip from Zurich

Explore Bern during your day trip

Greet your guide at a central Zurich location and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach destined for Bern. Get acquainted with the rich history of the region and admire the scenic Entlebuch Valley as you pass through the UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve. 

Make your first stop at the Kamply Experience, a premium biscuit factory cradled by the green landscapes of the Upper Emmental Valley, and see how the sweet specialties are produced during a demonstration. Sample a few treats before returning to your coach for the onward journey to Bern. 

On arrival in Switzerland’s medieval capital, explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town on a guided tour and see popular attractions like the 100-meter spire of Münster and Bern Cathedral as you stroll. 

Spend some leisurely free time exploring Bern after the tour, perhaps refreshing with lunch in a local restaurant (own expense). Return to your vehicle for the scenic drive to an Emmental show dairy. Once there, peer into a production hall to see the manufacturing process behind the world famous cheese, and then try the Swiss delicacy during a tasting session. 

Bid your guide and group farewell on arrival at a central Zurich location.

A slow paced, relaxing and comfortable small group tour. The guide, from Best of Switzerland Tours, was very kind, knowledgeable and very friendly. The tour provided ample free time to venture out on our own. As temperatures dropped below zero degrees, the tour was more interesting with the occasional snow. Overall, the tour was awesome.

Marvelous trip with terrific guide. Not only did we see the sights, taste the cheese and cookies but we learned both history and the current happenings. during our day tour. An unexpected plus was the bringing the cows down from the mountains.

This was a very enjoyable trip and the visit to Kambly Bisquit was outstanding - we are still enjoying some that we purchased. The countryside was beautiful and we found the cheese factory very interesting. Our time in Bern was wonderful and our guide showed us to many out of the way places there. It was a wonderful day!!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

We loved this tour! It was very well organized and Thomas, our guide, was great. Also, we had the luxury of having the tour with only 5 people in total which made the experience even better. We saw as much of Bern as possible in a short amount of time and loved the city's beauty as well as the beauty of the Swiss countryside. I highly recommend this tour.

we loved our trip. Andreas our guide saved it. He is so knowledgeable. We found out so much about life in Switzerland. I plan to return to Bern for a visit as the city is so beautiful that one day wasn't enough.
