2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Depart from central Zurich in an air-conditioned minivan and travel along the scenic shores of Lake Zurich on your way to the world-famous Lindt chocolate factory outlet. On arrival, indulge your sweet tooth with delectable Swiss chocolate. After purchasing appetizing souvenirs, travel past the town of Rapperswill, renowned for its impressive medieval castle, and arrive at the village of Stein. 
    Visit a local cheese factory to uncover the production secrets behind Appenzeller cheese, and then continue to Brulisau to experience panoramic vistas of the dramatic Swiss Alps. Ride an aerial cable car to the snow-capped summit of Mt Hoher Kasten and capture breathtaking views from an altitude of 6,000 feet (1,800 meters).
    Enjoy a unique dining experience in the mountaintop’s revolving restaurant (own expense) and stroll through the beautiful Alpine Garden before returning to sea level for a short walking tor of Appenzell. 
    After thoroughly exploring the region, return to your vehicle and relax during the journey back to Zurich, where the tour concludes.
