Fantastic! We took the 8 day one and it has been great. We were traveling with a girl and we have been able to visit many places in that time thanks to the ease of movement. Globally it is a saving and it is a peace of mind knowing that you have the advantages of mobility without worries.

This was SO worth it! The tour is at your own pace with GREAT interactive exhibits. The tastings are wonderful and we literally had our fill of chocolate. Will tell everyone I know coming to Zurich- it is a must visit for chocolate lovers!

Truly enjoyed the tour our guide Elizabeth was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to make this tour a great experience. Well organised and time for the short cruise and the chocolate factory visit. Everything was enjoyable.

It’s just amazing. This place is a must & a really enjoyable museum / experience. Take the ferry from Burklip platz to Kilchberg to visit Lindt as that is such a nice way to get there.
