Walter the bus driver did an excellent job navigating the big bus around sharp corners and scary roads. Kiara was an excellent tour guide. Her commentary was very informative and she was very friendly and patient. St Moritz was great, lots of snow and the Bernina Express train ride was out of this world. We highly recommend it

The ride was a lifetime experience for me as the views were spectacular all the way from St.. Moritz to Tirana. Do take note that The Bernina Express has limited departure during winter .

The day was great, Kiara the tour guide was super amazing and kind with everyone. I totally recommend this day trip to St Moritz.
