The only sad part was that we didn’t get a chance to leave the bus to enjoy some views in Switzerland. On the way to the city there were so many magnificent places and sights that would be nice to visit just for a brief moment but we just kept going and going. The rest was perfect 👍

The drive up to St Moritz was spectacular and it gave us ample time to explore the city. The train ride to Tirano was magnificent. Our guide was very good, not only did he tell us about the places we passed but also provided historical, political and environmental context. Not only was it very entertaining but also very educational. Definitely a must do!

Great day trip from Milan. The bus ride was scenic; they stop partway for a restroom break and to buy coffee/snacks on the way to St Moritz. Our guide, Salvatore, was great. Knowledgeable and helpful. We had close to 2 hrs in St Moritz to have lunch and walk around the small village. Our group had a whole train car on the Bernina Express. It’s not the train cars with the panoramic windows but the 2nd class cars which tend to be better for taking photos as these windows open for better viewing. The scenery was amazing on the train ride. All in all, it was very organized and a great experience!
