What To Expect

Meet your guide at the designated meeting place in Lausanne's Place du Port and board your coach to travel about one hour to reach the picturesque town of Broc.

Discover the secrets of great Swiss chocolate on a tour of Maison Cailler Chocolaterie, capped off with tastings of a variety of their delicious chocolates. Next up, head to the traditional Swiss village of Gruyère, which is famous for its signature Gruyère cheese. Sample the cheeses during your visit to a cheese factory, then have time to take in the village and surrounding scenery. Snap photos of the green mountains and listen to cowbells ring in the fields.

Wind down your day with a drive along the Swiss wine route, which runs through the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces — a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hillside vineyard terraces scale the slopes above the deep blue waters of Lake Geneva, and date back to at least the 11th century.

At the end of your full-day tour, your guide returns you to your starting point in Lausanne.

I thoroughly enjoyed the medieval village along with the chocolate and cheese factory tours. However, it would have been more enjoyable if additional historical/cultural information was provided during bus trip.

The locations were good. Tour guide was terrible. Never introduced himself or bus driver. Did not inform us about where we were going and gave no history of the area. Basically he just told us times to be back to the bus.

Late pick up and it was not provided the service it was sold for. I was not allowed to visit the Cheese factory with cheese tasting because the guide said this is not included on this trip, only the Gruyere gold day trip. However the itinerary clearly says the cheese factory is included. Waste of money.

The tour was amazing. Well planned, well organized and well executed. Our Guide Marie has a good knowledge on the tour places. Each and every location were explained well. The chocolate factory, cheese trasting and the train journey are very good. Thank you Visit and KeyTours SA.
