I had recently heard of the chocolate train and was so excited to make plans. We made a special trip to Montreux just to take the train. It did not disappoint. We drove down to Montreux the day before and stayed over night. We wanted to be rested and enjoy the day. It leaves early in the morning. We were... More

One of the nicest experience we had during the visit. We visited a cheese factory, a chocolate factory and a small lovely Swiss village. The chocolate factory showed us how to prepare chocolate and offered us unlimited chocolates to eat for free :). For small children it will be a lovely experience. Cheese factory also offered us free cheese. There... More

We specifically planned our time in Montreux, so we could do the Swiss Chocolate Train. Our girls love gruyere cheese and our family of 5 loves chocolate. They served a croissant filled with chocolate on the ride there along with either coffee, juice or chocolate milk, which I had and it was tasty. The scenery was beautiful and our first... More

Luckily I visited this forum prior to my trip and as recommended by many of you, I went to the factory myself rather than wasting a ton of money on a train from Montreaux. The factory in itself is just about OK. Yes there is unlimited chocolate tasting at the end but how much are you going to eat really?... More

If you have a Swiss rail pass already you may choose to use a day of your free travel to do it independently. Otherwise I recommend the package deal - it is more relaxing and well managed - the pass gets 40% discount. If you have a half price card (provided by most tour operators) you get a 30% discount....

The train was fun and looked like one from Harry Potter or the Polar Express on the inside. Both the cheese factory and the chocolate factory are a must! You can sample as many pieces of chocolate as you please and get great prices in the store. LOVE the chocolate! It was also fun to see the castle and adventure... More

We got a 40 percent discount from the regular fare ($99) with our Swiss pass. Pros: the train ride over has beautiful scenery and you get to ride in a circa 1910 interior decorated train. On the train you are served a hot drink, chocolate croissant and piece of chocolate. The chocolate factory is a nice organized tour. The town... More

The Cailler chocolate factory and Gruyéres cheese factory are definitely worth the visit, but the extra cost for the train isn't worth it if you're not into trains. Both destinations were easily accessible and easy to find with the normal trains. Not to mention it was a fraction of the cost - check the website there is a discount on... More

My kids are 8 & 6 yrs and they simply loved this trip. It was a complete day trip. The ride was scenic. Enroute we were served good snacks. Kids went crazy at the chocolate factory. The free tasting session is the best. Eat all you can. The prices at the factory outlet are just like the one at city... More
