I booked this trip for my husbands 50th birthday and it was a day he will truly remember for years to come. We met Roy he is very friendly and chatty. He was very informative about the local area and what would be happening during the day. The Watch tour and people we met were amazing. Definitely recommend this tour for everyone not just watch lovers.
It was a awesome experience to visit the Swiss watch factory & our tour guide & organiser Mr. Roy slater was fantastic & very co-operative, not only he organised for a full fledge authantic Swiss watch tour & a detailed demo & info of every segment of it, but he arranged for a suitable lunch (pure veg meal without even egg & honey). If u r a watch enthusiast, then this would be one of the most pleasant unforgettable experiences of your life..
highly recommended !!
Fabulous tour for watch enthusiasts!
My son is a watch enthusiast so I surprised him with this Swiss Watch Tour by Roy Slater, and couldn’t have been happier. We visited a watch museum and a local watch manufacturer. The watch tour was in-depth and we were able to see all the stages of manufacturing and learn the history. Roy is very knowledgeable and entertaining to tour with. He’s lighthearted with a great sense of humor so it was very enjoyable for both os us (even though I don’t necessarily have the passion for watches that my son has). We stopped for a delightful lunch in a charming setting. Would highly recommend!
A great experience and had a good and insightful look behind the scenes of the watches we love.Thanks Roy for the excellent arrangement. The staff at the factory we visited were also very friendly and informative and patient with our queries!
Roy was very accommodating. We arranged our December day tour about a month or two in advance so we were able to schedule the rest of our Switzerland trip around it.
The single day tour was a great look into the world of watchmaking by both guided road tour as well as factory/watchmaker tours.
I would definitely recommend Swiss Watch Tours for anyone interested in a quick introduction to Swiss watchmaking, and I will definitely be booking a two day tour the next time we visit Switzerland again.
Thanks for a great day, Roy!
My father is a watch enthusiast, and on his 60th birthday I and my mother offered him a Swiss Watch Tour as a birthday present.
I booked a private tour with Roy, which took place last Friday, October 21st. Roy took us to us to one of the many famous Swiss watch manufacturers and to our surprise the Portuguese flag had been displayed outside announcing our visit. We had the opportunity to go “behind the scenes” of the manufacturing process of mechanical watches. It was a very detailed visit with a great explanation. Furthermore, the level of access was amazing – we were allowed to stand right beside the watchmakers as they were working and we could even take photos. This was beyond our expectations.
The visit lasted the whole morning and after a delicious lunch, Roy drove us the Musée International d’Horlogerie in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
We must thank Roy and the watch manufacturer we visited for such an unforgettable experience.
Amazing Day in La Chaux-de-Fonds
I am a new watch enthusiast and the tour was a gift to me.
Roy was very accommodating because of my busy schedule and definitely matched what I was looking for in this experience which was insight into a smaller watch brand where I could see the process from A-Z of the watch making process
I was really impressed by the watch company that we visited and the tour was extremely personal and thorough. The master watch maker was very knowledgeable and spent a lot of time with us which made it very special.
Roy takes care of all the logistics, including a lovely lunch and is a gentleman…his jokes are not too bad either!
