Switzerland: The Sweet & Savory

Cheese, Chocolate & Favorite Swiss Flavors!

Indulge in a sweet and savory day in the amazing alpine scenery of Switzerland! Our day kicks off with a sweet start in the town of Broc, home to the Nestle Chocolate factory, “Maison Cailler.” During our visit here, you will learn the sweet story and all the candy-coated secrets of Swiss chocolate, tour the factory production line and see first-hand how this delectable confection is made, which is sure to send your sweet tooth into overdrive! But fear not, there will be chocolate samples to satisfy all your cravings with an “all you can taste” chocolate experience waiting at the end! 

Next, we travel through the charming countryside of the Saane Valley to the medieval town of Gruyères. Here, we will explore the magic and mystery of the world-renowned Gruyère cheese and how the high standards of keeping cows happy and content makes a world of difference in the quality and taste of this full flavored dairy delight. Using our senses of smell, touch and sight, we will follow Cow Cerise (Cherry) on a self-guided journey through a local dairy where all the delicious secrets of this distinguished Swiss cheese will be revealed to us, including a glimpse at the cheese production line.  Your cravings for this mouthwatering snack will be blissfully indulged with a cheese sampling that boasts the rich flavors produced by the local fromager’s with over a century of cheese making experience.

Afterward, we invite you to explore the sites of the historic town of Gruyere at your own pace. Visit the magnificent 13th-century Castle of Gruyères, take in the natural alpine scenery, enjoy the quaint shops or an authentic Swiss Fondue for lunch. H.R. Giger’s Café & Museum, which celebrates the artist’s peculiar aesthetic, famously seen in his set designs and monsters in the “Aliens” movie franchise is a must see for film buffs.  This tour offers the perfect blend of fantastic food, mountain scenery and exploring some of Switzerland’s popular sights!
