It was a lovely tour! It’s a long day from Milan but you truly see the best sights and the train ride is the official panaromaic view of the Swiss alps. What’s also best about this one is you take the bus UP the ALPS and then the panoramic red train DOWN the ALPS. Monica our tour guide was lovely - her English was very good and she was very friendly and willing to give many suggestions on things to do while visiting Italy. The bus drivers for these tours are VERY SKILLED and they make over 20 switchback turns going up the ALPS so you want to be sure you pick the best tour with the most professionals. I would highly recommend this tour if you are limited in time and want to see the ALPS/Switzerland on your trip to Milan.

Great experience, bus journey was interesting and train journey enjoyable. Let down by other factors such as the train window wouldn’t open (only one on our private carriage) but couldn’t get the whole experience and disappointed by other travellers in our group not arriving back at the meeting points on time. It would have been useful to know that shops don’t open on a Saturday in st moritz this time of year which left the town a bit dead.

No words can describe this trip, pictures do not do justice and the tour guide was amazing, the group on the train was amazing, people sharing the amazing moments.

I liked everything, the super charismatic guide, the truth is that he totally recommended them! Everything super excellent

Excellent tour. Andrea gave us an amazing tour. Highly recommend this!
