This Swiss Alps Tour was spectacular! My children, ages 12, 15, 18, will tell you it was the highlight of our trip. Despite lengthy travel times, first by bus, then train, the views were breathtaking. Loved the food stops, Tirano and St. Moritz, although wish there had been more to do in St. Moritz.
LIVES UP TO THE REPUTATION , MOST SCENIC TRAIN RIDE IN THE WORLD . FANTASTIC . LONGER STAY AT ST. MORITZE WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT .
This was my favorite day on our two week trip. The train ride was absolutely spectacular. The drive along Lake Como and through the Italian mountains to get to the train was also beautiful. Our tour guide, Angela, did a terrific job. She arranged lunch for those of us who wanted it in Tirano which was good and reasonable. It's a long day with a lot of sitting on a bus, but well worth it. If you do this tour, REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR PASSPORT! There was a gentleman on our bus who had a very expensive cab ride from Milan to Lake Como to catch up with the bus because he forgot his passport.
Wonderful tour. Some of the most beatutiful Mountain Scenery and from train views. Even better that the train windows opened. The only issue was that some fellow tour takers were not aware they needed their passports and we had to make to stops on our way to wait for them to catch-up to the bus.
This was the highlight of our stay in Milan. The Swiss Alps are so beautiful. More amazing than I had imagined. If you go, please don't forget your passport as 2 people on our trip did and had to go and get them and meet the bus later.
I think it's a very nice exprience, though a bit expensive, we dont need to arrange our own transport and other stuff. ( For your info, the ticket of Bernia express itself is only 28 CHF per trip )
Our tour guide was fantastic! Very full of life and joked and information about our stops and destinations. The scenery really blew our expectations out of the water. The optional lunch here was a mixed review from my family. I enjoyed it but some members said they could have done without. Definitely bring a camera with you on the tour. Recommended, even if it is a bit pricey!
A fantastic enjoyable day, despite a few problems on the day, Eddie looked after us very well. Thanks Eddie!
This tour was one of the highlights of our 2 week vacation in Italy. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, the tour bus was new and clean, and the scenery was awesome. I highly recommend this tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip through the Alps. Even although it was May and early summer, there was still plenty of snow on the ground, cascading waterfalls,picturesque Swiss villages tucked into green valleys. It was a memorable trip as was the bus ride return. The scenery and cultural info provided was both informative and enlightening on our way to the rail head.Our wine tasting and traditional pasta lunch recommended by our guide made an enjoyable break during the journey from Milan to the border and is highly recommended
Beautiful Trip and a nice break from the city. The guide was fantastic and the views incredible. Had to explore the day before the trip to find the tour office in Milan. when I called to confirm, the person answering the phone could not give me specific directions on how to find the local tour office. This was the only negative to the entire experience.
Was a great well lead tour, we throughly enjoyed it. Will definately recommend and do it again.
Absolutely outstanding from start to finish..The tour guide and drivers were phenomenal as well...Made us comfortable and answered everyones questions with delight..I would highly recommend this tour to anyone..
This was a well-organized tour. The lunch was very good prior to departure and the scenery along the Bernina Express route was breathtaking! We felt a little pressed for time in St. Moritz, but other than that, I can't see how it could have been better organized. Our tour guide, Marcella, did a good job and was quite entertaining. However, she did have the tendency to go off on long tangents at times and seemed to have an "attitude" toward Americans. She let us know that she didn't think Americans were very friendly. Odd, because all of the Americans on her trip were very friendly and quite nice to her. At the close of the trip, Marcella acknowledged all of the countries with participants and said that they were all places she would like to go, or go back to; yet took the opportunity to slash America again, saying she has no interest in going back there. I felt this was out of line and unnecessary to voice. Although it did not ruin my impression of the trip or of Viator, it did cost Marcella a nice tip! I think Marcella needs to be more conscious of her audience. I am sure that Americans regularly make up a healthy percentage of her bookings.
