See some of the many farms scattered across the pristine moors and Alpine pastures. Cross the border to the idyllic Emmental Valley to reach Trubschachen. Here, enjoy a biscuit tasting at the Kambly Experience and discover the origins of Switzerland's best-known premium biscuit brand.

Marvel at the gigantic wheels of cheese in the impressive cellar before indulging your senses during a cheese tasting only an arm's length away from the master cheesemaker's workplace. Take a picture stop with amazing views over the gentle green hills of the Emmental to the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

We had a wonderful time with Sibylle and would definitely recommend this tour to others. She was very informative and knowledgeable and we got to take in the sights at our own pace and never felt rushed. We enjoyed many tasty treats along the way and enjoyed learning some of the history and culture that makes Switzerland such a wonderful place.

Very well organized trip. The tour guide was very competent and passed on a lot of background knowledge. The stopovers at Kamply and the cheese dairy in Emmental were very well chosen and were fun and very informative. The city tour in Bern was great and the time for exploring on our own was appropriate. It was a great day.

The wow guide Peter was exceptional. Small van, interesting explanations, no crowd, no rush, small cute presents on the way. He took a country road instead of a highway just to show us the amazing views around and it was worth it! And Bern city is truly beautiful . Had a lovely time.

Monica is a wonderful tour guide. Very knowledgeable and educated. I had a great time in Bern. Thank you

We had a nice and respectful driver /tour guide. View was breathtaking
