This was an EXCELLENT trip!!!! Our guide, Fleur, was AWESOME!!!! This was a great escape from the city, but time flies, so don’t waste any. The cheese factory presentation was interesting and the clog factory presentation was even better. There were lots of options for buying souvenirs and the locale itself is beautiful.
