We booked this Tour to Appenzell and it was impressive. Our guide Martin was very kind and he showed us great places, we would not find by ourselves. The chocolate factory tour was interesting with lots of stations where they explain how the chocolate is made and you can watch also the production. Additional you can make your own chocolate bar and make fancy creations. Tasting samples was also part of the tour and was delicious. The cheese factory tour showed us how these produce the famous Swiss cheese and we could also taste the cheese from mild to strong flavor. The highlight was the Mountain Santis, where you have a great view all over the Swiss alps. We enjoyed this tour a lot and would definitely recommend it.
