After reading several other reviews I was skeptical of this tour thinking it was going to be very structured, too much down time waiting on other tour participants etc. but we found it to be great. First of all, there is not really another way to connect in one day, on your own without a car, the cheese factory, the castle and the chocolate factory. We wanted to do all three and found each of them to be enjoyable. First, the scenery from Montreux to Gruyere was spectacular and we travelled on a panoramic train. The a lint of time allocated to the cheese factory was just the amount you needed for the tour, a bathroom stop, and a quick look in the shop. The time allocated for the town of gruyere was good for a walk through the castle and a nice lunch in the town. It was all self paced and you could do as much or as little as you wanted. You never felt like you were part of a big tour. The chocolate tour was very well presented and it is true you can eat as much chocolate as you want! The train ride back to Montreux we took a nap and were ready for an evening along the promenade and dinner. I highly recommend this trip.
