everything was good except the 1 hour free time in St Moritz is lacking, it would be better at least 2 hours of free time before the Bernina train ride, because after the train ride we are back in Italy, we finished at around 6:30 pm so we still have time

This experience was amazing! 100% worth the money! From the transportation to Switzerland with a guide to the train ride with a reserved group cabin, the entire experience was a 10/10! A great way to see a little bit of switzerland and also ride the bernina express without the stress of finding your own transportation. I definitely recommend this excursion to anyone looking to experience the bernina express!

Despite having some bad experience with long bus rides, the tour to St. Moritz when just fine, curved roads and early morining hours and still the ride was really calm, easy with no problems. The St. Moritz walking tour gave a good understanding of the town and it's history as well as some good recommendations for suitable locations for light breakfast and chocolats. The Bernina express was more than one can expect. the snowy mountains, the glaciare view and all while sitting in a warm and comfort coach. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
