This is a unique experience to unravel the secrets of Neuchatel. We will meet at the Cornavin Train Station in Geneva in the morning and start our trip in my car. We will head to Neuchâtel which is a small and beautiful city by the lake of Neuchâtel (the biggest lake which is entirely in Switzerland). I was born and lived in Neuchatel for more than 40 years, so I am an expert in the city. After 1 hour and 30 minutes of driving, we will arrive and visit the main city. I will explain the history and daily living of Neuchatel which is a typical Swiss Romand city with 1000 years' history. Our next stop will be the asphalt mines in Val de Travers. This is the only asphalt mine in the continent. I will offer you a special menu full of surprises which you can never taste elsewhere. After lunch, we will visit the mines with a guide. If you wish, before to come back to Geneva, we can visit one of the absinthe distilleries or local chocolate producers in the area. I can speak English, French, Italian, and German. If you cannot find any time or date that suits you, please contact me for other options.
