The train ride from Montreux to Broc Fabrique is very picturesque and it is definitely worth checking out if you are staying in Switzerland. The chocolate tour around the Cailler factory was very interesting. We had to wait approximately an hour for the tour to begin but there is a shop that we could look round whilst we were waiting....

We were not sure about going on this trip - sounded a bit contrived and we hate being herded about. However, we took the advice of fellow Trip Advisor reviewers and went along. We're glad we did. Yes, it's kitsch and we were herded a bit but it's fun, informative and the free time in Gruyere the highlight. Let's not... More

What a simply awesome day from beginning to end. We chose the vintage rail cars. The scenery was beautiful from the moment we pulled out of the station. Even if we hadn't done anything else, the train ride alone was worth every penny. We were served hot chocolate and chocolate croissants as a snack. The ladies who guided the tour... More

I really like this tour. It is not inexpensive but so worth the time and effort. It takes you to and through beautiful places. If you are a chocolate lover it will take you to paradise. If you are not it will make a believer of you. If you have young children or you are a child at heart this... More

I'm really glad we chose to do this tour. I think that the value was great considering what we paid. It provided a guided scenic tour experience that we would not have experienced on our own. The train had assigned comfy seats and provided a lovely snack on our scenic journey. Our 1st stop was the Callier chocolate factory which... More

The train is beautiful, really nice people who work on the train. Chocolate factory nice but to commercial. Gruyere beautiful. Maison Gruyere to commercial. It was off-season so relaxed but don't think it is nice to do in high season. I was with a nice group of women and was paid for so had a great time and was fun... More

We read a variety of reviews as we don't like going on organised tours but decided this could be a great opportunity to try something different. The train is a fun experience and the views are good but this is just a small aspect of the trip. The chocolate factory is really interesting and you can eat as much chocolate... More

the train carriage was a lovely retro style wagon with great comfortable chairs. The pain au chocolat and the cup of hot chocolate were the best ever. The 2 ladies that manned the train stayed with us all day through the chocolate factory and then on to Gruyère and the cheese factory. A must do if in the area. goes... More

We looked at doing both these options on our own, but decided to pay the ticket for the Chocolate Train. It was nice to have someone know the areas we were going to taking the navigation out of the equation. The chocolate tour was wonderful! It was a big comical, but we enjoyed the funny pictures at the end and... More
