Was good and informative. Tour guide took us around and showed us the highlights of the location. Was very pleasant and hospitable.
Monica, our guide, is very knowledgeable about the regions we passed on the tour, including their history. I learned a lot about Switzerland in such a short time. Now , about the tour package: It's great seeing the country side scenery coupled with Monica's narratives. Old Town Bern looked impressive from the bridge with the rooftops and steeples and river. But the arcades at ground level don't look old at all. Whoever rebuilt these arcades did not fully restore the quaint charm of old architecture. But this is why I'm giving this tour only 2 stars: The Kambly biscuit tour was a disappointment. A little animatronics and video and that was it. A long trip for only a 10-minute video is SO NOT WORTH IT. We didn't get to see any inside-the-factory action at all. Another thing, I just wish the Emmental (cheese) and Kambly tours were more accessible and sensitive to those with special needs. I didn't see any ramp at all. Again, with the animatronics and videos telling the story of Emmental cheese and Kambly biscuits -- there were no close captions on the video or story posters with the animatronics. Forget this tour if you're deaf, wheelchair bound or pushing a heavy stroller with a sleeping kid inside.
On time departure, clean, spacious mini bus, tour guide professional and polite. But felt the time we stopped at the Kambry shop and cheese factory is too long, would been great to have spent an extra hour exploring the old part of city of Bern.
Love the old town.
Brilliant tour, Guide so helpful and friendly
A slow paced, relaxing and comfortable small group tour. The guide, from Best of Switzerland Tours, was very kind, knowledgeable and very friendly. The tour provided ample free time to venture out on our own. As temperatures dropped below zero degrees, the tour was more interesting with the occasional snow. Overall, the tour was awesome.
Very well informed and patient guide. The places we visited were interesting.
