For the chocolate factory in Switzerland, is driving a good option?

Instead of taking the chocolate train, could I rent a car and drive to the chocolate factory and cheese factory? Would it be easy to catch tours there in English?

    Hi Barbara,

    I'm sorry, I do not have any information about driving in Europe. To visit the cheese factory and the chocolate factory, you can take the Chocolate Train excursion, which departs from Montreux. The Chocolate Train excursion is a round-trip journey between Montreux and Broc, where the Cailler-Nestlé Chocolate Factory is located. On the way from Montreux to Broc, the train will make a stop in Gruyères. When you get off the train in Gruyères, you'll be taken by bus to the actual village there. The trip would include free admission to the cheese factory in the village. After a couple hours in Gruyères, the bus would take you to Broc to visit the chocolate factory. After a couple hours at the factory in Broc, you would take the train back down to Montreux.

    Generally, you would be able to purchase tickets for the Chocolate Train under 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage by entering 'Montreux' and 'Broc' as the pair of cities you'll be traveling between, and the tickets we issue would be valid to cover the entire round-trip (including the bus from the train station in Gruyères to the village and the bus from Gruyères to Broc); however, tickets for this excursion are not able to be booked there at this time. Instead, you would purchase tickets for the Chocolate Train excursion by calling us at 1-800-622-8600. Please keep in mind that the Chocolate Train can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure.

    Any of the exhibits and presentations done at the cheese factory and the chocolate factory would be offered in English.
