  • Excellent tour with 3D photos taken in 1900s that shows life as it was 100 years ago. Excellent bonus on the already fascinating tour of the cheese caves , great explanations all round . Good for children too. Not pram friendly!
  • They sell subpar cheeses and the tour has cheesy pictures, avoid!
