We met our guide Jay at the train station. Then made our way up into the mountains on the quaint old time chocolate train which was very nice. When we reached our destination we walked to the Gruyere cheese factory. from there we took an air conditioned bus from the cheese factory to a village for lunch where we explored a castle in our free time & then on to the chocolate factory by bus again. The train then took us back down the mountain.
The cheese factory was a bit boring but everything was pleasant, it actually felt like a time filler & the souvenir shop was very overpriced. The village was very picturesque, the castle was really great. We loved exploring all the different rooms & climbing to the top.
The chocolate factory was great. The tour through the eras of chocolate were cute & fun though we didn't get to actually see much of the production of the chocolate which would've been interesting. The highlight of course was the tasting room, so many different types of chocolate & all delicious. We left that room feeling a little sick. Unfortunately if you feel that way, you can't escape the chocolate as the smell is everywhere, inside & out. We enjoyed ourselves though & bought some chocolate to take away with us for a much later date.
