Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 518 reviews

Everything is very quiet, you can use it without fear. I don't speak German or French and English is very bad, but I didn't have any problems.

Easy purchase-validation process! Just take a screenshot of the barcode of the pass and the train regulators will scan it :)

We were easily able to travel around all of Switzerland on trains, trams, busses and boats. Great value!

Great tour with personalized recommendations of what to do after the tour as well

Had a fantastic trip. Very easy to get on the bus, boat or train.
