Geneva: Gruyères Gold Tour with Train Ride & Tastings
- Duration: 9.5 hours
The tour was absolutely fantastic. The bus ride was smooth, and our tour guide, Maggie, was direct and to the point with very clear directions. Our first stop to the chocolate factory was much more than we expected... My wife and I were stuffed from all the samples... the next stop to the Gruyère factory was very intriguing, and packed full of information. The restaurant they took us to for a fondue/food tasting was intimate. The medieval town of Gruyères is a definite must-see. You feel like you’re still in the 1500s. Overall, this has been one of the best experiences we’ve had.
Since we attended the Atelier Du Chocolate, a chocolate making class at the Cailler factory, the tour went on a little longer than expected. Our tour guide Ms. Adina, was most accommodating & did not mind, she went on to complete all the stops mentioned in the tour. It was a pleasure to have Adina as our tour guide !
Everything worked right on time. Beatiful places, knowledgeable guide, enough time in every place. The train ride at the end was very unpleasent! Old cart, uncomfotable and not enough seats. No airconditioning in this cart and the purpose of beatiful view was absolutely missed. Sad ending to a wonderful day.
Yolanda, the guide from Key Tours was very professional. I enjoyed the tour from beginning to end. I generally like traveling on my own, but this was worth every penny. Would highly recommend to female solo travelers who want to venture to see the Swiss countryside.
Fantastic day trip. The chololate factory visit was deffinitely not Charlie and the chocolate factory but interesting all the same. We preffered the visit to the cheese factory and gold train (the scenery will not dissappoint you).
