Long day but a great trip! Wished we had more time in St. Moritz. After lunch not much time to explore. It we did make it to the chocolate shop - it was amazing.

Great package, great way to see places I would otherwise not have made it on my own. Perfect for travellers like me looking for new experiences.

Very good trip although it's a rush at some point. But you really get to see different things on the same day.
