Just me and NEAL ROCKED the tour
Jul. 2021
Got to the office of Suisse Tours and realized I was the only one on the trip. Neal, my driver, was knowledgeable, funny and sooo accommodating. This day trip was incredible and I got to learn about so much more than gorgeous sites. Thank you NEAL and Key Tours. Hang in there. Your customer service is 5 stars!

Breathtaking
Oct. 2019
I am so glad we decided on this excursion. The guide, Maria, was great, organized and well prepared. It was such a great combination of learning about Nestle chocolates, tasting different kinds with cheese making process and tasting fondue and famous double cream desert. The little town of Gruyere was a surprise.
The scenery is breathtaking from Gruyere and Golden Express.
It was a great day and great overall experience.

Great trip to explore outside the city

We were taken by Yolanda into the mountains from Geneva and had a wonderful day tasting chocolate, cheese and taking in the sites. The trip back to Montreaux on the Golden Express was outstanding.
