    Our guide Thomas went above and beyond to be friendly, accommodating and keeping it a relaxed trip while still getting us places on time. The driving was safe throughout the trip. We very much enjoyed each of the individual aspects of the packager: the chocolate factory tour, cheese factory tour, fondue lunch, time in the village of Gruyere and the Golden Pass train ride. Each was unique and a true taste of Switzerland. My only slight dissatisfaction was that the tour was described as being 10 hours but only lasted about 8. I believe this was because it actually started in Geneva and we were picked up in Lausanne. However, the next day we ran into Thomas on his tour of Glacier 3000. It was because of his encouragement that I decided to conquer my fears and ride the cable car to the top of Les Diablerets. If not for him including us with his two guests for the day I would have missed out on an amazing experience! Heartfelt thanks to Thomas be being an extraordinary guide!

we really enjoyed all the stops on the tour, and the flexibility we had with respect to how long we stayed at each stop. we're on a driving vacation through France and Switzerland, but it was really great to have some else with good knowledge of the area do the driving, especially for these stops.

I consider the 'Swiss Riviera' tour an absolute "must do", for anyone visiting Geneva! Every turn along the journey left me smiling. Indeed, the absolute beauty of this region is something both unique and special!

Get your guide was great. Tom our guide arrived early to the pick up area. The trip went smooth, the experience was unforgettable. Highly suggest!

Very nice day at the top of Glacier 3000, Evan is very friendly and available.
