We felt like a local on this excursion. Jonas met us at our hotel and we walked, rode the tram, took a boat and finally a train. Along the way Jonas shared information about Zürich and the chocolate culture. Loved the Oro chocolate shop in Zurich and the chocolate making class at Lindt. When we arrived by boat at Kilchberg, the air smelled like chocolate. Highly recommend this trip. Jonas was wonderful and it felt like we were hanging out with a friend. This is a great excursion to do on the first day of your trip to Zürich because you learn how to use all forms of Switzerland’s excellent public transport.

The Zurich Chocolate Tour was a very memorable one and the Lindt Chocolate Factory was amazing. The presentation on the cocoa beans was very informative. In addition, the presentation by Lindt chef professionals for making the chocolate bar was very impressive. We had first-hand experience making our own chocolate bar; truly an amazing experience. Jonas, our private tour guide is a humble, friendly and polite individual. Besides, the Lindt chocolate factory, we visited other two chocolate shops as well. Jonas has a lot of experience and is patience and very accommodative. We wish him all the very best in his career with ‘Venez Discover Switzerland’. Suggestions: - a) If there is a change in timing at your end, sufficient notice is to be given to the Customer with reasons. b) To specifically mention/inform the Customer that this private tour would be a walking tour and travelling by Train as well instead of the Customer assuming that it is a private car tour. c) Pick up to be arranged, free of cost, at the Hotel even if the Hotel is not listed, as this is a private tour. d) Customer should be informed well in advance the extra charges (per hour) that would be incurred by the Customer if they cross the scheduled/agreed tour timings.

Jonas was awesome! From him we learned history, more about Switzerland, and he assisted us as we made Lindt chocolate. He willingly answered questions and geared the tour to our preferences. He is a true gentleman with a great personality. His colleague, Fredericka, is also going to be a great guide.
