A small group but organize tour..our guide Thomas set the rules clearly and our group respected the rules..no shoving or being on top of one another unlike our jungfraujoch tour..

Peter was our driver and guide on this private day tour. It was a great day filled with history and a guided walking tour in Town before having free time on our own. Would highly recommend this tour!

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.

Marvelous trip with terrific guide. Not only did we see the sights, taste the cheese and cookies but we learned both history and the current happenings. during our day tour. An unexpected plus was the bringing the cows down from the mountains.

This was a very enjoyable trip and the visit to Kambly Bisquit was outstanding - we are still enjoying some that we purchased. The countryside was beautiful and we found the cheese factory very interesting. Our time in Bern was wonderful and our guide showed us to many out of the way places there. It was a wonderful day!!

We loved this tour! It was very well organized and Thomas, our guide, was great. Also, we had the luxury of having the tour with only 5 people in total which made the experience even better. We saw as much of Bern as possible in a short amount of time and loved the city's beauty as well as the beauty of the Swiss countryside. I highly recommend this tour.

we loved our trip. Andreas our guide saved it. He is so knowledgeable. We found out so much about life in Switzerland. I plan to return to Bern for a visit as the city is so beautiful that one day wasn't enough.

I personally felt there wasn't as much to see as I expected, but as for the tour it went very well and we had time to explore on our own.

I originally was going to go to Bern by myself on the train and explore the city using my guidebook on the last day of my trip, but I enjoyed the other tours in booked for Switzerland so much particularly the ones run by Best of Switzerland tours, which this one was that I decided to do this tour instead. I'm so glad I did this! It was such a fun day, and I enjoyed the variety of activities that I would have missed out on if I had done it on my own. Bern was a beautiful city and I felt the amount of time there was adequate for what I wanted to do look at the fountains, clock, architecture and take some pictures, see the bears, learn some history. The samples at Kambly were good and I really enjoyed learning about how cheese was made and trying the cheeses. Our small group was so much fun, and our guide, Andreas, was outstanding! He was very nice and I learned so much. The drives in the countryside were so pretty and the guide provided a wealth of information.

Excellent day tour! See the beautiful scenery of Switzerland as you travel to a delicious biscuit(cookie) factory. Then off to Bern to see the city and it's rich history and parliament, and then up to the high green pastures of emmenthal to a cheese maker w/ tastings. Truly a great adventure!

Richard our driver/guide was excellent! Bern is beautiful and Richard did a great job showing us everything. I thought the stops for biscuits and the show dairy would be boring, but they were both worthwhile. The biscuits are excellent and the unlimited samples made for a nice mid morning snack and Richard's talk at the diary made it very interesting plus the location is beautiful and the cheese was great. Excellent day out!

Not a popular trip as our group only had 6 4 of us from the same family even though Bern is a beautiful place to visit. Our guide-cum-driver was knowledgable and gave good explanation and brief of the places and icons. Time given at Bern for shopping and lunch is ok. Kambly biscuits tour was fun when understanding its origins as well as the plentiful biscuits for you to savour even if you do not buy any. Cheese factory tour was also satisfactory although we did not quite like the taste of the cheese produced at Emmental.
