My partner and I landed in Geneva after a long and arduous journey from Australia. During the last leg our plane couldn’t land in Geneva airport due to strong winds and it took a detour to Lyon airport and another bus trip to get back to Geneva. So I thought, I just want to do something relaxing for the next day.

Our tour guide Evan was funny and knowledgeable. The time in the mini bus was about an hour and 40 minutes from Geneva bus stop to the chocolate factory, then a short ride to Gruyere village and the cheese factory.

We ended up eating inside the Gruyere cheese factory as Evan recommended and had the fondue (if you have two people, fondue for one is enough as the waitress recommended).

The cheese and chocolates are Devine. I’m not a big chocolate person and prefer dark chocolates usually but the original milk chocolate at Callier was so amazing I bought 14 bars in a box for family and friends. Really enjoyed this tour.

Also, there is an HR Giger museum at Gruyere Village for 12 CHK pp entrance fee. It’s HUGE. If you are an alien movie fan, the museum is to die for.

Train ride in historic cars through the mountains and villages was a highlight.

Portion related to cheese and the village of Gruyere were great. The cheese demonstration location was very educational; I won't forget how much grass and milk it takes to make cheese. The presentations were a bit hokey but over all well worth the time. The castle and village stop was my favorite part of the tour. The castle covers a very important family is Swiss history and their impressive home. Part of the efforts to save anr restore the castle has led to a very interesting display of modern art. This was the lunch stop and there was enough time for eating at one of the good restaurants (we chose The Chalet).

Bus to chocolate venue was scenic and a plus of the trip. Chocolate stop was interesting as it relates to the history and technology of chocolate in Switzerland.

We had a great day on this tour! Mostly because of our Guide-Hextor & driver-Joseph! They were both awesome!
Hector explained things, gave us info we needed & told about Geneva & things we were seeing along the way. Everything was well planned out, they stayed with us so when we had questions they were right there!
Both factories were wonderful! & the lunch was delicious!
The tour was everything we expected & more!
Hector was a great guide & wish we had had him on other tours!
Guess we will book from Key Tours from now on.
Hectoe even helped us after tge tour with our next tour for the next day- NO comparison!
Thanks Hector & Joseph for a great day!

Very nice tour of the countryside. The chocolate factory was outstanding (the prices are cheaper in the supermarkets in Geneva) - the cheese factory was disappointing. Just to see the Swiss countryside was worth the price of the tour and the castle was a a photo op that will be remembered.

Good morning, Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are glad you like the countryside of Gruyeres region. It's how you can really image the swiss countryside with the green fields and the cows. We are sorry about the cheese factory, it's still a AOC cheese company which is very popular to visit here. We hope you to enjoy your holiday in Switzerland and wish a very good travel
