Gruyères tour of Chocolate Factory and Medieval Village
Aug 2019 • Couples
Great tour and tasting at Chocolate factory and tour of cheese factories, but way too rushed. Don’t expect a leisurely tour because if you aren’t done and at the bus in 25 minutes for cheese factory and an 55 minutes at chocolate factory, you’ll be left behind. They twice left without an accurate count at both places and the second time had to divert our bus group to pick up the mother and daughter that had been left behind. 40 minutes round trip. Tour of castle costs extra. Worst of all we almost didn’t get the tour at all as there was a big triathlon event in Luassane blocking our pick up point and tour never contacted us with an alternative pickup. Only due to the generosity of hotel concierges at a place we weren’t even staying who spoke French did we reach tour company to arrange an alternative pickup. Then they didn’t show. Luckily a Canadian couple with phone service called again and yelled at the company who was telling him to call the bus driver. He told them we needed to make the arrangements ourselves! Finally they did come but the remainder of the trip, the English speaking tour guide referred to us as “the couple with the basic package who diverted the tour”! Not a nice reflection on us!!

All in all we spent 5 hours of travel time during an 8 hour tour. Not worth the money spent.

Good morning, we are sorry to read your review and see that you are disapointed with the tour. The tour includes lots of places in one day and there is timings to respect, unfortunately as it's not a private tour we have to stick to the schedule. You have between 1h and 1h20 in the chocolate factory, 40 minutes in the cheese museum then you have free time in the village. If you wanted to stay longer in the cheese musume you could cut off your free time of 3 hours in the village if it was your choice. The castle is not an inclusion in our tour, therefore you have to pay on the spot if you want to visit it. The drive is 2 hours to get to Gruyères and it's mention in the itinerary. If you read the description, you now how the tour is going to be. Sometimes to see scenic places like Gruyères, there is a bit of driving to get to the countryside. We still hope you like the chocolate and the cheese museum as it's part of the swiss gastronomy and culture. We are again very sorry that you feel disapointed and we wish you a nice day.
