ALPS, CHEESE, AND CHOCOLATE
What are two things Switzerland is known for? Its delectable cheeses and savory chocolates! Now you have an opportunity to sample both on this adventure filled Swiss cheese and chocolate tour through the Alps. The tour starts by travelling across the trendy new district of Zurich West on your way to Lake Zurich. From there, you will visit the quaint boutique shops of the world famous Swiss Chocolatier Lindt, where you will have the opportunity to purchase some of this most heavenly chocolate. The tour continues through the majestic Swiss Alps until you reach the town of Stein. It is here when you will visit the local cheese factory where the famous wheel shaped Appenzeller cheese is made. Then fun doesn't end there however. Continue on through until you reach the village of Brulisau where you'll head up Mount Hoher Kasten via aerial cable car. Get a bird's eye view over the Rhine Valley and even Austria's Vorarlberg region as you glide through the air at over 6,000 feet. Last on the list before heading back to Zurich is a guided walking tour of Appenzell with its narrow pedestrian lanes and quaint painted houses.
