Would Definitely Recommend!

Our guide was fantastic and allowed us flexibility to move around at each stop, despite the allotted time frame. The ride was comfortable, the scenery gorgeous, and the experience unforgettable. Would definitely recommend! PS. I could not locate the bus stop and my navigation (both Apple Maps and Google Maps) led me to two different areas. Thankfully, Key Tours was helpful and guided me by phone.

A bit over rated!

The chocolate and cheese production tours were really nice. The panoramic train view, was anything but! Was told we were in the 1st class car only to be instructed by the ticket woman we were 2nd class and in the very front, so if your seat was backwards you really had no view. The price for this trip is much to be desired, not recommended by me.

Excellent sites, informative guides, great memories - definitely recommendable!

A wonderful way to see and experience this gorgeous area of Switzerland

My 10- and 8-year olds and I loved this tour. We found it worthwhile to do the upgrade to “Gold” which includes the cheese fondue tasting and the panoramic train ride. We wish there was more time to spend at the gift shop after the Cailler tour ended, and some time to eat a proper lunch. While the cheese fondue experience was fun, it wasn’t a full meal, and by the time we had an hour to spend on our own in Gruyères, it was 2 pm, and we wanted to spend the time there (only 45-60 mins) exploring. The tour guide, Maggie, was excellent and the ride was comfortable. Overall, a day well spent!

So many things packed into one day! First of all, our tour guide (Maggie) was excellent - very knowledgeable, kind and well organized. The chocolate factory was excellent, as was the cheese factory. Fondue up in the mountains was great too. It was overcast, so the view on the train was not as good as I hoped and the visit to Gruyeres was chilly, but we can't control the weather.

Day well spent with a great guide (can't remember lady's name correctly - Orlanda) and driver (José) Cailler chocolate factory was great if you are a big fan of Swiss chocolates. Gruyere factory was not that much interesting. Lunch (if selected as part of the package) was excellent (Cheese Fondue). Train ride on the panoramic train is worth doing as well.

Exceptional and worth every bit!

Had a spectacular time! The sudden snow was unexpected but created a beautiful landscape. Yolanda was a great guide. Well worth the money to have a hassle-free trip.
