An excellent day trip for any given Sunday, with many little hidden treasures. Many thanks to Ivan, our your guide and Javier, our driver who were meticulous in taking care of us whilst ensuring we had a fantabulous time whilst taking in the sights - thank you ??

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.
