Fall into the temptation of the best chocolate in the world. Taste the national cheese and wine: the most famous of Swiss delicacies. Start with the chocolate world of Cailler, understand the history of chocolate, how they make it and enjoy tasting it as much as you like.

At noon you will reach the top of Moléson Mountain and have a tasting in a typical Swiss chalet, a friendly handmade cheese factory.

The whole activity is nice, but I wish we had more time to visit the village of Gruyères. We only had 1h, so we had to rush the visit of the castle and couldn't visit the village itself. Visiting the chocolate factory was awesome!
