Gruyère is of course a cheese. No. It’s THE cheese! But there is also the village Gruyères, where the cheese is born !
We leave Geneva toward Gruyères by taking the beautiful raod next to the lake, in order for you to see of Swiss sceneries as much as possible with informative explanations.
Once at Gruyères we visit the cheese factory to start with, where you will learn how the cheeses are made, get the opportunity to taste various labelled cheeses, including Gruyères and even buy some, if you wish so. Once in the village, we will spend the next 2 hours visiting its old town, the castle and views and wander the shops for traditional Swiss fayre. Lunch will be taken in the village at a typical chalet. We will then continue the tour with a visit to a chocolate factory. You will learn the chocolate-making process, sample the delicacies and have a chance to make a few purchases to take back home with you, before going back to Geneva.
