This was as good a trip as I have ever been on . The scenery was a s good as you could ever imagine . it was really well organized and our tour guide Sonya was exceptional in her attention to detail . Definitely a must whether there for a very short trip or there for a longer time
Must see! What a great experience. Make sure you sit on the left side of the train facing forward! Best vantage point to take photos!
it was a wonderful experience. the tour started at the preset time and the guide was knowledgeable and kept us entertained throughout the trip with his anecdotes . the view was fantastic.
It was an awesome trip riding the train into the Alps.
We found out after our passports could have been stamped in Switzerland in the town we stopped in. That would have been nice to have that info beforehand, if that is the case. Otherwise it was s great trip
This was an amazing activity!!!! Absolutely loved the train ride to St Moritz. Spectacular views.
Wonderful tour, incredible views fro the train trip. Our guid was great, so was our driver. Very nice trip back to Milan, quite an experi nice coming down the mountain in the bus. Highly recommended.
We have just arrived home from 5 weeks of holidays and rate this as one of the best days on our holiday. Wonderfully organised and absolutely spectacular scenery. Our guide was very knowledgeable. An absolutely fantastic day.
A life time experience. ..Can and #39;t express in words... A must thing to do...
This tour is fantastic, a bit of a long journey in the bus but well worth it. Probably the most photogenic tour we did.
The scenery is amazing! This is well worth the money but would be very disappointing if the weather reduced visibility. The coach trip from Milan to Tirano is not especially thrilling but gives a good perspective of how close the Swiss/Italian border is.
We chose to do our own thing for lunch in Tirano instead of the paying the 16euro for the organised lunch. We had 90 mins free time in Tirano to eat and wander around before boarding the train.
Make sure to sit on the left side of the train - you definitely get the majority of best views from the left side, sadly, we were on the right hand side. The windows of the train come down which helps with photography. The higher you get, the colder it gets so bring something warm to put on even if the day is warm and sunny. The scenery is mind blowing with beauty, we loved the train ride.
St Moritz itself is a bit of a ghost town in summer and there is not much to do in the hour you have to wander around. The lake makes for some good photo opportunities but there is a lot of construction going on so be prepared for cranes and construction in the background.
The tour takes the bus from St Moritz and we wished it stopped at the lakes just past St Moritz - the area is overwhelmingly beautiful. We would have loved to get photos of that area. Again, try to sit on the left side of the bus as it gets the best views. The incredibly steep, winding roads is an experience in itself and added to the thrill of just how high up you are in the Alps. We loved this section of the tour too.
The trip back was quite fast and we were back in Milan by 8pm. It was a tiring day but well worth it. You won't regret doing this tour.

My 2nd time on this tour and it did not disappoint again.....
Excellent lunch in Tirano
Highly recommended! The view of the countryside and the Swiss Alps was breath-taking, the food and atmosphere at the town of Torino was wonderful, the train ride was very unique since they allow you to open the windows and enjoy the breeze, the hot chocolate at St. Moritz is a must!
Tip: Try to get a seat on the left side of the Bernina Express if you want to take great photos
The tour guide was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable of the route we were taking, giving us lots of good information and alerting us to when something was around the next corner that we would want to see.
Experience of a life time. Warm enough to have the windows open and the views were magnificent. I would say everyone should take this trip!
The trip was a beautiful experience. The day started with terrible rain in Milan, but this turned to snow in the alps and at St Moritz. There were so many beautiful photo opportunities and our guide looked after us well. The trip was everything we had hoped for and we would definitely recommend to friends.
Nothing that I disliked at all other than the fact that it was too short! Wish it was way longer! Enjoyed ourselves tremendously!
Fabulous - have recommended it to everyone and showed them dozens of pictures taken. It is a must trip.
The swiss Alps are superb. I only wish we had brought even more clothing, it was very cold, since we were in May and in the train all windows are opened for clear picture taking. I'd redo it anytime!
