What to expect

Visit Bern, the capital of Switzerland. This tour follows a scenic route, passing through stunning landscapes and the rural Entlebuch and Emmental valleys. Pay a visit to the Kambly Experience to taste some delicious premium biscuits and the Emmental cheese factory for a sample of the cheese.

Travel in a comfortable minibus with a small group. Enjoy the scenic drive through the unspoiled moorlands and idyllic alpine pastures of the Entlebuch valley, which is Switzerland's first UNESCO Biosphere. Crossing the border to the Emmental valley, you reach the Kambly Experience. Learn about the origins of Switzerland's best-known premium biscuit brand and watch the master confectioners at work. Indulge in unique flavors and try as many biscuits of the tantalizing variety as you like.

Continue through typical Bernese backcountry towards the Swiss capital Bern. Time for an informative walk through the charming Old Town, a designated UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. Marvel at the late Gothic Cathedral (Münster), stroll under the arcades of the clock tower (Zytglogge) and pay a visit to the Parliament building overlooking the beautiful Aare River.

Next, you will have some leisure time for lunch and souvenir shopping. The tour will continue through the fascinating rural landscape with its rich heritage. The impressively vast roofs shelter the typical Emmental farmhouses. 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 lenght away from the master chesemakers' workplace. Continue to a nearby dairy farm and see grazing cows on green hills producing high-quality milk, the main ingredient of the world-famous Emmentaler cheese. After a picture stop with an amazing view over the gentle green hills of the Emmental to the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau on a clear day, you drive back to Zürich with a bag full of Swiss delicacies collected at the visited attractions throughout the day.
