What people are saying about Graubünden

Michaela our guide managed to fit in quite a few breaks (for breakfast, lunch or to the bathroom, even if it wasn’t on the schedule), despite a very full day of travelling, this was greatly appreciated. The driver Davide was also great at getting everyone from one place to another, safely and quickly despite the small and windy roads around Como, Italy. This is a great tour for everyone who doesn’t have a lot of time but want to see as much as possible. In addition, it was great to go to Lake Como early in the morning when it wasn’t too hot and overcrowded.

It was a wonderful well thought out excursion fitting lots into a day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to answer our questions. Lake Como is stunning as is St Moritz. The scenic railway is long but you see some stunning views. We’ll worth the price we paid.

A well-organized trip, a competent guide, a comfortable coach, saving time and the trouble of self-supplying transport connections on such a long road. In addition, the bus journey to St. Moritz also leads through the beautiful surroundings and makes the trip more varied.

Excellent Guide Sara and amazing driver santo made this excursion enjoyable, the stops and timings are well thought of to truly enjoy lake Como and Bernini Express.
