Beautiful scenery but extremely long day.
Letty_F, Sep 2023
The views of the Swiss Alps and surrounding villages were stunning! The stop in St. Moritz was definitely worthwhile. There were many restaurants, pastry shops, gelato and chocolate makers to partake in. Our guide Lina and our driver Massimo were spectacular! My only complaint was the travel time. With traffic, this tour was almost a 14 hour day - mostly spent sitting. It was a 3 hour bus ride to get to St. Moritz. Another 3 hours on Bernina train through the Alps. Finally a 3 hour return on bus through traffic. I would not recommend for elderly or people who cannot sit in cramped surroundings for extended periods of time.
Terrible Rude Driver on PickUp
Faraaz_M, Aug 2023
I was booked for this trip on this trip. When the driver arrived, my wife was in the bathroom. I asked him to please wait a few minutes but he was extremely rude and just drove off. It was shocking and disappointing. The doorman was also surprised as this s Is far from the customer service we’ve experience throughout the rest of Milan. At their office we were able to reschedule but at the cost of 40 euros. Additionally the taxi rides back and forth from the hotel to reschedule was something we also had to add to our trip. When we did reschedule we were told to meet them at a certain point as hotel pick up was not offered. The trip itself was fine. Our guide anna was pleasant and knowledgeable but the experience leading up to it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. The train is also a normal train and not the panoramic one. Would advise the experience but perhaps with a different company.
Beautiful scenery.
Pamela_N, Jul 2023
Beautiful scenery. However, I did not realize we were taking a bus to St Mortz time for lunch only and then the train to Torino only time for gelato and then bus back to Milano again. I expected to see more of the Alps. That was Frustrating.
Fantastic tour and awesome guide!!!
Lavinia_C, Jul 2023
Wonderful tour, highly recommended! We were mind blown by the sites - between the glacier and St Moritz everything was fantastic. Surpassed our expectations. A special shout-out to our guide Monica, she truly made our day! Very insightful, a true professional and so funny and witty - what a gem! Thank you. Highlight of our trip.
Hot, sweaty bus
Frank, Jun 2023
Hours on a hot bus is not my idea of a vacation. Air conditioned buses are expected to be comfortable. This was not! Very poor description of how the transportation works and approximately what time it would be over
Tour was not what they Advertised
Marlene_H, Jun 2023
We booked the Swipp Alps Bernina Train Tour and the advertisement had a picture of the Bernina Train, instead we were put on a commuter train with no panoramic windows and this train would stop in the towns. Also, the Bernina train passed us and it would stop for the people to take pictures and in the train we were in we were not allowed to do that. In addition, the tours states a visit to the Madonna of Tirano church and we did not go there. It was deceiving to the customer and we complained to the tour guide and nothing was done about it.
Best ever tour
Giuseppe_B, Jun 2023
Spectacular views. A worthwhile experience. Loved the train ride and St Moritz which was a unique clean place with spectacular Mountains and lakes
Beautiful scenery.
Sara_H, May 2023
Quite a long coach trip from Milan although worth it for the terrific scenery. Switzerland is beautiful.
Sharon_S, May 2023
Amazing trip through the Alps!! We had snow in May - the entire experience was beautiful! The train ride was everything I had hoped for.
Well worth ti.e and money
Karen_H, May 2023
Omg where do I start? Was brilliant from start to finish, our guide was amazing and knowledgeable. The sights was breathtaking. Everything was as planned all through from the hotel pick up To the drop off. About a 2 hours stay in St Mortitz which was plenty of time and the train was spectacular. Long travel time was exhausted, but well worth the rime and money
our day in switzerland
Nancy_W, Apr 2023
We enjoyed the narration of the guide on the scenic drive up to St Moritz. We were surprised to find so much closed upon our arrival…just not understanding that we were here in the wrong season. So there was like no choice for a lunch restaurant. The Bernina train was fabulous!!! We so enjoyed the scenery and must have over 300 photos. The stop for 20 minutes in Tirano was a complete waste of time. Perhaps if we had gotten on the bus sooner we could have avoided the accident that shut down traffic for an extra 2.5 hours. Certainly no one’s fault but boy were we exhausted. Our guide also promised to show a few of us the taxi stand and she didnt … for me i was rather frightened about finding a cab…
well worth the fare
Dalton_N, Apr 2023
what a wonderous sight those mountains and lakes were. As petroleum geologist and engineer I loved what I saw and proud of the engineering knowledge so long ago
Having fun.
Melissa_P, Apr 2023
The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The bus was comfortable but the ride very long on the bus. The train ride was fun.

Save Yourself From A Painful Experience
JamesJ_R, Feb 2023
The pickup at our hotel was perfect but it was a very long day that could be done in half the time for half the price. Also, they rushed everyone to the coach in St Mortiz so much that people were out of breath!
The countryside and its...
Rodolfo_D, Sep 2022
The countryside and its beauty. Good guides and a fabulous driver. Coach could have more leg room. Switzerland is beautiful.
Best feature was the Train, but the bus ride and organizaation was not good
Rita_S, Jun 2022
The Train Ride was wonderful. However, we did not have time to do much and felt rushed in St Moritz. In addition, it was Sunday so almost everything was closed. I was looking forward to buying the advertised chocolate and we did not get to purchase that. I booked the tour that had hotel pick up and that did not start very well. They told me 6am pick up and then by 630am no one had picked us up. I called and they said they had sent me a message that driver was sick and couldn't pick us up. We had no such message from the Tour Operator. In addition, they told me to take a Taxi, yet the Taxi workers were all on strike since 2 days before and they didn't even know that. We had to find an uber at last minute and almost lost the tour. Never received any apology nor any follow up on the fact we didn't get picked up from the hotel as agreed, and that we paid extra for that tour. Never even got reimbursed. Worse of all, we did not book the one that had multiple stops, however somehow that's what happened. We had 2 additional stops from the pick up point which is why in my opinion we were rushed in St Moritz and were not able to see everything promised on the 'What to Expect'. These 2 additional stops for pick up and for drop off took time away from our tour. It was definitely not expected. It also made a long day even longer. So the whole experience was terrible, and it took away from the amazing train ride.
