if you want to get out of Interlaken and see something typical Swiss - just do it! We had a great time in the French part with the cheese factory and the chocolate factory, which was pre-organized by our tourguide. Transfers were smooth and you get samples to try on both sites.

We like to have some time for ourselves on a tour - that was fantastic. Tour guide was the driver too and did it great. We got an itinerary, we got suggestions from the guide and everything went perfect. Always had VIP-location on drop-off/pick-up and it was well organized. Tour guide was the storyteller while heading to the next stop. Would do it again!
