This tour was brilliant. Our tour guide Inna was fabulous. The only downside to it is, the time in Saint Moritz is very very minimum. Then again, this specific tour is all about the journey and not the destination. Also the Pizzochoeri pasta for lunch at Tirona is a must try :)

Great tour after we found the bus at beginning of tour. There were multiple buses starting at the same time and place. Someone should have been out directing people. The only other problem was on the train taking pictures if you weren't beside a window. There was open seating on our train car with our 48 people.
