Absolutely fabulous. The scenery was amazing and on our way up to St Moritz it snowed. Our tour guide was fantastic, interesting and fabulously funny. Content was perfect and would highly recommend the journey.
Took bernina express on 3rd may 2014, and it was a fantastic experience to be on a heritage train,
Just want to share few things for other travellers :-
1. Check whether for St. Moritz and Tirano before you plan your tour.
2, Lot of day tour available from milan, you can check that out.
3. The train takes around 2.20 hrs to reach St. Moritz from Tirano, earlier you get to see snow capped mountains and lakes and beautiful swiss scenes. In last 1 hour the train reaches the top of mountains for breathtaking views of snow and frozen lakes.
4. Would be more enjoyable in winter or maximum by may else you might not find snow.
5.St Moritz has nothing much to offer apart from few Souvenir and chocolates shop
6. Try to carry some food with you to have it in train,
Its a good day outing from milan and I enjoyed even being a single traveller.
Absolutely amazing tour one of the best I've ever been. Visiting astonishing and beautiful small towns on the way to the Bernina Express. And Alps are just breathtaking! Don't miss this one.
The best time to see snow and lakes is late April or early may. The tour was fantastic, friendly guide and driver.
Very competent bus driver. Tour host very good. Even with the poor weather conditions, the scenery was spectacular and we had a fantastic day that we will remember for a long time.
When taking all aspects of the tour into consideration it is excellent value for money.
Great tour. Take your camera. The guide was very knowledgeable on history. I would recommend for anyone to take the tour.
The views were breathtaking. I would have liked more time in St. Moritz. Maybe if we packed lunch and ate on bus, then we would have more time in St. Moritz.
Swiss alps Bermina Express Rail Tour from Milan was a wonderful experience,very well organized,is like be inside a navidad postcard.the right side of the train is better for photos.
Este tour es una experiencia maravillosa,el paisaje te quita el aliento,en verdad vale la pena,todo esta muy bien organizado.El lado derecho del tren es mejor para tomar fotos.Gracias!!!!!!!!!
Impressive one day tour to catch the feel of what the locals would do of going to the Alps.The mountain views were making us speechless. The stop over at the Italian/Swiss border was a good experience of local life.The lunch was simple but good.
We had a great experience right from the start! The bus leaves at 7.30 a.m from Milan and take you up to Tirano. You will have about 1-1 1/2 hour free time in Tirano before the train ride. The ride is about 3 hours long. It's stunning! When you get to St. Moritz you will have about 1 hour free time there and take the bus back to Milano from St. Moritz. We got back to Milan around 8 p.m. The whole trip is very organised, our tour guide, Nadja was excellent! I trully recommend this trip....if you like nature, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, georgous landscape then this is the right choice for you!
Wow!!! Stunning!! Great scenery, snow, peaks,... chocolates and cheese... Switzerland and this tour awesome!!
An unforgettable day of spectacular scenery, from the drive along Lake Como to Tirano in Italy, the scenic train in Switzerland, and the return from St Moritz in late afternoon. Lunch was excellent and included drinks and attentive service. A trip not to be missed.
Fantastic views, if you have only one day to visit Switzerland, highly recommend this trip. Our only issue was, it would have been nice to get more time at the final destination (St. Moritz). The village is beautiful and you cannot do much in 50 minutes to 1 hour. We also understand it is a long trip!
Overall, great experience. We loved it.
