What people are saying about Canton of Fribourg

Gabor was a great host! He was engaging and told us about some of the local history as we toured. He gave us great advice about how to get the most out of our trip and what else to see whilst we were in Geneva. The car was very clean & comfortable and there was a little flexibility in timings meaning we could get the most out of our tour. The cheese and chocolate were amazing and definitely a tour not to be missed! Highly recommend this tour and Gabor’s services. Many thanks once again!

Nice stroll. Too bad we did not have the explanations because it did not work. From earphones so for nothing. A very nice lady, however, provided us with explanations all along the route.
