We started at 7:15 and drove to St Moritz by bus. The views as we got closer were unbelievably beautiful. We grabbed lunch at Hauser then took pictures before hopping on the train for 2hrs. More unbelievable views. We arrived back in Italy, boarded the bus and was back in Milan by 745pm. Perfect day.

This was a beautiful experience. Even in the heat of summer, it was refreshing and the scenery was breathtaking. The stop at St Moritz gave us some time to eat and have a stroll, but the highlight was really the Bernina Express & the guide that shared a lot about the areas we were passing through.

Excellent trip, Alejandro was great and very clear in his instructions regarding logistics. We had a good amount of time in St Moritz (around 1 hour 40 mins) and stunning views during the majority of the train journey. The only (small) downer was the conduct of some other tourists on the trip, who were ruthless, selfish and nasty in their efforts to secure seats on the train; I have witnessed better behaviour from school children. This is of course not the fault of the tour operator, as they cannot, and indeed should not, be responsible for the conduct of grown adults who should know how to treat people with respect and common decency.
