What To Expect
Make your first stop at the Kamply Experience, a premium biscuit factory cradled by the green landscapes of the Upper Emmental Valley, and see how the sweet specialties are produced during a demonstration. Sample a few treats before returning to your coach for the onward journey to Bern.
On arrival in Switzerland’s medieval capital, explore the UNESCO-listed Old Town on a guided tour and see popular attractions like the 100-meter spire of Münster and Bern Cathedral as you stroll.
Spend some leisurely free time exploring Bern after the tour, perhaps refreshing with lunch in a local restaurant (own expense). Return to your vehicle for the scenic drive to an Emmental show dairy. Once there, tour the show dairy on the audio-visual 'King's Way', and learn more about the history of the world's most famous cheese before trying the Swiss delicacy during a tasting session.
Continue to a dairy farm for a picture stop with an amazing view over the rolling green hills of the Emmental, before bidding your guide and group farewell on arrival at a central Zurich location. At the end of the tour take with you a goodie bag of Swiss products collected at the visited attractions throughout the day, worth at least CHF 30.
