Enjoy a small group tour of the Swiss capital of Berne, with round-trip transfers by air-conditioned minibus from either Zurich or Lucerne. Drive along scenic roads through stunning landscapes, and get a flavor of the rural highlights of the Entlebuch Valley (Switzerland's first UNESCO Biosphere) and Emmental Valley. See some of the many farms scattered across the pristine moors and Alpine pastures. Cross the border to the idyllic Emmental Valley to reach Trubschachen. Here, enjoy a biscuit tasting at the Kambly Experience and discover the origins of Switzerland's best-known premium biscuit brand. Learn the fine art of biscuit making and watch master confectioners at work. Indulge in the unique flavors of Kambly's biscuits, tasting as many of the tantalizing varieties as you like.

Glory in the red of the geraniums in their windows. See grazing cows on green hills producing the best milk; the principal ingredient for Emmental cheese. Stop at the Emmentaler show dairy for the highlight of the day. Tour the show dairy on the audio-visual "King's Way" and learn more about the history of the world's most famous cheese. Marvel at the gigantic wheels of cheese in the impressive cellar before indulging your senses during a cheese tasting only an arm's length away from the master cheesemaker's workplace. Take a picture stop with amazing views over the gentle green hills of the Emmental to the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

Our guide Martin was by far the best guide we had in the three days of tours we took with your company. He explained more about Zurich on our drive out and back to the city than any other guide. We also learned about Swiss architecture and village life. He drove happily through the Swiss countryside, giving interesting details here and there, and even played some traditional Swiss music. His Mercedes minibus was clean and comfortable. As for the tour itself, this is a great combination of driving through the beautiful farmlands of Switzerland and seeing some of the smaller towns along the way. The visit to the biscuit factory and the cheese making were an informative bonus loaded with coffee and plenty of free samples. We even got a bag of treats to take home. This tour is lovely.

Very well organized trip. The tour guide was very competent and passed on a lot of background knowledge. The stopovers at Kamply and the cheese dairy in Emmental were very well chosen and were fun and very informative. The city tour in Bern was great and the time for exploring on our own was appropriate. It was a great day.

The wow guide Peter was exceptional. Small van, interesting explanations, no crowd, no rush, small cute presents on the way. He took a country road instead of a highway just to show us the amazing views around and it was worth it! And Bern city is truly beautiful . Had a lovely time.
