    Absolutely LOVED this tour. So much to see, and our driver Ben, was a wealth of information. We can highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again. The Waldheim Chalet and park was the biggest suprise. The moss forest was breathtaking. We had the best time, even as it was a drizzling most of the day. The only unfortunate thing was the Cheese factory was closed (due to renovations) but Ben our driver took us to a Raspberry farm which was just as wonderful.

We had a great day. The drive / tour guide was great. My husband has issues with walking, due to a accident few years ago. He took into account his issues. He would walk so far , then wait our return. We had a wonderful day long but very enjoyable.

They didn't cancel the trip even though I was the only one in it. So I get to have the entire bus for myself and no delays. And got to do side trips that made it more special
