Late pick up and it was not provided...
LUDMILA N
, Sep 2016
Late pick up and it was not provided the service it was sold for. I was not allowed to visit the Cheese factory with cheese tasting because the guide said this is not included on this trip, only the Gruyere gold day trip. However the itinerary clearly says the cheese factory is included. Waste of money.
