Great day trip experience! The chocolate tour was by far my favorite while the cheese tour was a bit lackluster. It is helpful to know when booking through La Vacanza Travel you are not given the additional add-ons automatically. For the cheese tour, the rest of the group will eat fondue at the restaurant while you are given your cheese sample and taken to Gruyere to explore and eat (I actually preferred because you then receive 2 hours to explore vs. 1). You also will not already have a ticket for the train purchased near the end of the day. You can either purchase your ticket there or choose to ride on the charter bus. Fun experience overall and I do recommend

Very poor instructions on where the Geneva bus station is, there is no address. Once you arrive there is also no information as to what the name of the bus is to board. When calling the trip advisor for it , all she said was “you were supposed to look for the Gruyeres bus and board it” I responded there was no instructions , nor any communication with the tour guide. The bus ended up leaving us behind. I asked for a refund as there was poor communication and she said no and there was nothing else said. Would not recommend, very poor customer service. Attached is a photo of all the directions given at time of booking.
