Great tour early morning start but worth it. Our guide was very good also and the driver did an excellent job. By taking the train one way it gave a good return trip by road. So it was anew experience beginning to end.
It is awesome and great tour...I have no words to describe feelings.
Fantastic tour from start to finish. Well organised and great informative guide. Bernina train ride was exceptional with spectacular views. The highlight of our holiday to Italy.
Well organised tour with a great guide. One of the most scenic train rides I have taken. Also enjoyed the bus journey back on the mountain roads.

Words aren't going to describe just how beautiful the scenery was on this magical day. It took my breath away. The swiss alps are definitely worth seeing and the Bernina Express was certainly a highlight of our trip. It was wonderful to see St Moritz. It is truly a beautiful place to visit. Even though it was a Sunday and most of the shops were closed it was still great to be there. The chocolate shop was nearly worth the trip on it's own. This tour, though a bit pricey, is worth every cent. It is a full day and the memories you will take away will last a lifetime. I can't recommend it enough.
It is a very good experience to join such a wonderful and amazing tour, everything is well organised, awesome tour guide Franco and bus driver. Wonderful breathtaking views and glaciers in the Alps.
Wow, what can I say. From the moment we left Milan by bus the day did not disappoint in any way. If you are lucky enough to have Franco as your guide you will have the best experience ever. He had everything well organised, from lunch to border crossing requirements. The Bernina Express is a great way to see some breathtaking scenery from villages in the valley, to the glaciers in the Alps. The large windows of the train enabled easy photography. Once we arrived in St Moritz we had free time to either shop or explore the lake area. Our bus trip back to Milan had our bus driver, David showing us his driving skills down a very steep road which included many hair pin corners where cars had to stop to let our bus go through. Would recommend this tour to anyone wishing to get the most out of your time in the region. Excellent Value, thanks Franco
Yes this was an excellent trip which my sister and I both enjoyed. Very well run.
This was an amazing trip, well organised with plenty of rest stops and breaks. The train journey itself offered breathtaking views and St Moritz is beautiful has to be seen to be believed. A special mention needs to be given to Sonia the tour guide who was excellent and so helpful
This outing was the BEST!!!! The train ride was breath-taking! It had rained in the morning, so we did not have clear skies, but the clouds made the photos beautiful! I would have liked more time in St. Moritiz, but overall, the day was wonderful!

Wonderful experience with breathtaking views
Superb.....you must do this trip. Well planed with just enough free time. Great good value lunch at Tirano as recommended by out guide. Views from the train are breath taking and the coach ride back down the Maloja Pass was stunning. Its a full day so be prepared to be a little tired on your return.
Great tour and awesome guide. Would be better if they publish the entire itinerary.
Would recommend more time in St. Moritz and less time in Tirano.

Beautiful sightseeing all around. The bus stops in Tirano for a bit to see the church there and get lunch before the train ride. Try the pizzoccheri pasta! It's a buckwheat pasta cooked with chunks of potato and cabbage with cheese. Very very good much better than it sounds. The bresaola is amazing as well.The train ride was beautiful and very neat. Bring a sweater or sweatshirt. The train windows are open for pictures and you WILL get cold. It was Mid August and in the 50s going through the mountains while it was in the 80s in Tirano. It would have been nice to spend more time in St. Moritz as we only had about an hour to explore before meeting the bus to head back.
Great tour. Spectacular scenery. Tour leader and driver excellent

Fantastic day. Superb guide and driver and the train journey is fantastic. Everything organised like clockwork. The only negative is the lunch organised by the guide was expensive and not very tasty - there are plenty of options in Tirano and better if everyone can choose where they want. The main waiter in the restaurant was not very welcoming and didn't let the group sit outside, claiming the tables were not available, despite not a single table being used the whole time!
Amazing train into the Swiss Alps with outstanding panorama all around! Glaciers, beautiful lakes, scenic landscapes are all breathtaking! The only disapointment is actually St Moritz... the stop is short and the Town itself is extremely expensive to shop. Good for pictures by the lake and buying chocolate!
This is a relaxed, well planned trip! A great way to see a bit of Switzerland. Our tour guide was wonderful! The only disappointment was the weather- it was overcast and rainy so the views weren't the best. Highly recommend!
This was a great day trip. The scenery from the bus on the way to the train station made the time pass quickly. The recommended restaurant for lunch was good and served our food quickly, which gave us time for a quick walk about town. The views from the train were breathtaking and it was easy to move from side to side on the train to capture all the view with your camera. The guide was great at letting us know to be ready for a quick picture opportunity as we zipped along.
Hubby and I had the most wonderful day on this tour. I highly recommend going on the tour.
Wonderful trip, long day, the tour guide was nice, but the elderly people on the tour were rude. A bit pricy but wonderful views of Swiss. Short time to spend time and a very long day of travelling.

This was a great tour - loved the alps and the train trip. Really breathtaking scenery and well worth the tour - it's a must do!
The only disappointing aspect was that the tour guide told us he could get us a special lunch at a local restaurant for I think 16 euro. Don't be fooled into thinking you have no other options even on a Sunday as all the restaurants are open with lovely views. We took the offer along with all our tour believing it was our only option and found we were served slop on a plate which was inedible. It left our tour hungry and we had to buy ice cream. You are packed into a upstairs dining room with a hundred other tour bus people feeling more like you were in a mess hall. Shame on the tour guide for giving everyone the wrong impression - he obviously gets a cut.
