What an excellent trip!! I was a bit worried as is more expensive than other trips we have done but there was no need to worry. From start to finish this was an amazing experience for all the family! Daniel was a fantastic guide and the driver Fabio did an amazing job! If you are in Milan I would highly recommend this adventure!!!!

One of the most incredible experiences in my life. The whole trip was perfectly organized, the guide and the driver were excellent and the views from the train UNFORGETTABLE. If you think about it, don’t hesitate for a second, it’s absolutely worth all of the money.

WE RECOMMEND MORE TIME IN ST. MORITZ, it is very beautiful and totally worth it, except that the time is very short, we only had one hour, which is not much because you have to walk

Incredible views The truck does not have a bathroom and for elderly people it is uncomfortable... it takes several hours by truck

excellent excursion. it is very worth it. a unique experience
