By asking the ticket clerk for only round trip tickets to the chocolate factory, you take a scenic ride through the forest, with one, easy, train transfer. Tickets to the factory itself are included in the fare. After the factory, take the train back and disembark in Gruyere. The cheese factory is across the street from the train station, but... More

The Chocolate Train and tour of the Chateau de Gruyers and the Cailler chocolate factory were a fun day. The scenery along the way was very nice.

The tour guide was great, and everything went smoothly except for the rain! Money and time well spent.

This was supposed to be for my 8 yr old son. But apparently even 35 old ppl like me and my wife loved it and so did 61 yr old mom and dad. It has something for everyone. The train is a classic old engine train. Its interiors are done very nicely and princely. You get Hot chocolate and Muffin... More

We wanted to just go to Gruyere for the cheese tasting and visit to the castle but it was so difficult to arrange that we chose the chocolate train experience. Very interesting tour of the chocolate factory and lots of tasting available. Tasting at the cheese factory was minimal but the castle was worth seeing. Great to eat lunch here... More

Just fantastic-hang the expense, you won't be disappointed, especially with the trip to Gruyeres. The train is comfortable, air conditioned and the hostess was very entertaining!

Vintage train cars are quaint, but would not have enjoyed it during heat of summer as there is no air conditioning. They serve chocolate croissants, coffee or hot chocolate along the way. The cheese factory at Gruyere was, well, cheesy, but the town itself is a nice place to enjoy lunch and explore small shops. Views are exceptional. The chocolate... More
