Our journey kicks off with a sweet start in the town of Broc, home to the Nestle Chocolate factory, “Maison Cailler.” During the visit you’ll learn the sweet story chocolate, tour the factory production line and see how the delicious candy is made.  All this is guaranteed to send your sweet tooth into overdrive, but fear not, there will be samples! From here we shift to the savory side of Switzerland’s edible delights with a visit to the famous cheese making town of Gruyere.  Here we explore the mystery of how this world-renowned cheese is crafted at the Maison du Gruyere and enjoy samples. Our final stop takes us to Switzerland’s most famous cheese destination, Castle of Gruyere, for a special Christmas Exhibition showcasing decorative figurines, ornaments and a charming Christmas Market with local singers, musicians and delicious treats.
