Take a break from the hustle and bustle of Zurich's urban sprawl. Hop on a comfy air-conditioned coach and go on an adventure to tickle your taste buds and feel one with nature! Begin your tour by visiting the world famous Lindt & Sprungli chocolate shop and purchase all the chocolate delights you want to munch on as you go on this lovely journey. Once you're done indulging your chocolate cravings, you'll head for the hill region of Appenzell. Along the way, you'll pass by the municipality of Rapperswill, where you can marvel at its towering medieval castle from your window. Your next stop after the chocolate shop is the Stein Cheese Factory. Inside, you'll get to see the factory workers in action, learn how they produce Swiss dairy delights, and get to sample some freshly made Swiss cheese. After a cheesy feast, you'll proceed to the Appenzell region and ride a cable car going up the incredible Hoher Kasten mountain where you'll get jawdropping views of the surrounding landscape from breathtaking vantage points. There's a revolving restaurant sitting on top of the mountain; if you have money to spare, you can have an authentic Appenzell regional meal. After romping around the mountain, you'll descend from it and enter the town of Appenzell, where you'll go on a relaxing guided walk. As you cut through its many streets and admire its quaint architecture, you'll learn all about its history from the stories and commentary of your enthusiastic tour guide. Once you've explored enough of the town, you'll be brought back to Zurich. This tour is a must for nature lovers and for those who like getting to know cultures through taste.
