Our tour guide Martin was wonderful. Started with Lindt chocolate tour which was really not a factory tour, but rather a chocolate store tour that was connected to the factory. Health regulations prohibit factory tours. But it was a beautiful store with wide selection of chocolates which we all bought and enjoyed the free samples on entering. Next came the cheese factory tour which had a glass partition allowing a direct view of the production floor and cheese storage area. We had a marvellous cheese tasting experience with lovely cheeses, fruit, nuts, and bread. Drinks whether alcoholic or non alcoholic had to be purchased with the tasting - not a deal breaker. Then we went to a town and took an enclosed lift up an alp. Unfortunately it was foggy so no view, but I was assured it would have been a spectacular view but for the weather. So we ate at our expense at the revolving restaurant - it was OK but not special but with nothing else to do we connected with our fellow travelers. Had the weather been more cooperative we might have skipped the meal to take in the view. Lastly we went to a lovely small town for a descriptive walk about and grabbed a coffee. A return to Zurich ended a lovely if at times weather frustrating day. I should mention that Martin pointed out the farms, rolling hills, architectural elements and historical landmarks throughout the drive. Very informative. There were restrooms at every stop. Overall quite enjoyable and recommended.
The mountain is really cold. so keep yourself warm. Chocolate and Cheese tour can be disappointed

This was a GREAT tour! The chocolate factory has some great deals and the chocolate is wonderful. The cheese factory was a bit stinky but it is a cheese factory! The mountains are so beautiful! You are in for a treat!
Absolutely amazing, turned out to be the best part of our trip and was great. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the tour and even inclement weather didn’t detour our great experience
Fantastic small group tour! Stopping at a factory Lindt chocolate store is first on the agenda. The whole drive is narrated by a lovely guide who will tell you anything and everything about Swiss culture as you drive to the city of Appenzell. Touring the cheese factory and having a tasting then up to the top of mountain you can opt out if wanted but I wouldn't suggest that and see the city of Appenzell from above and have a bite at a revolving restaurant while you see 4 countries from your view. Afterwards you are given a quick tour by the guide of Appenzell and then free to walk your own around the town before heading back to Zurich. The small group atmosphere and knowledgeable guide made this an absolutely must see trip. My husband and I loved it!
Loved the day- beautiful tour- wonderful guide!
Highly recommend this tour as the Mountain View is breathtaking!
We had a great time on this tour! It allowed us to see a different part of Switzerland, with our fantastic tour guide: Monika! Such a beautiful place!
Fun day, and a beautiful place to see.
This was the best trip I ever had. Most recommended to families with children.
