This was our first venture into Switzerland and what an introduction! The tour starts on a bus from Milan to Tirano. On the way you get a glimpse of the Lake District of Italy. In Tirano you can have lunch at a restaurant recommended by the guide or explore and have lunch on your own. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. She did not pressure anyone to eat at the recommended restaurant. We enjoyed exploring Tirano and found a delightful pizza place for lunch. We boarded the train in Tirano and were lucky to have the last car. It was fun to see the front of the train curling ahead of us as we navigated through the mountains. Check out the estimated temperature in St. Moritz and dress accordingly. Everyone wants a good picture, so the windows come down in the train. The views are spectacular! In St. Moritz you will have a short time to explore before you board the bus for a wild ride home through hairpin turns and quaint villages. The bus driver was very skilled. It's a long day, but a memorable one.
This is a fabulous trip that is still very vivid in my memory. It is a great way to see some of Switzerland when you don,t have a lot of time. The scenery on the train from the train was fabulous, seeing st. moritz,and getting fabulous chocolate were all outstanding. The drive out of Switzerland on the bus was even more outstanding then on the train....I was expecting to see Heidi any minute!
Very worth while and great value.!!
One of the best tour I've ever had! The tour is long but well organised with stops on the way for coffee, food, toilets. First stop is Tirano where you'll catch the train and where you can visit one of the most beautiful little church I've ever seen! There you will also have time for lunch. Of course the highlight of the tour is the Bernina train where you will remain speechless for a couple of hours as the views are breathtaking! Once you arrive in St Moritz you have an hour or so to visit this luxury town and then it's time to go back to Milan. Absolutely recommend it if you want a day out from the cities and enjoy mountains' views all around. Totally recommend it for any type of traveler!
WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE. The only problem with this tour is the very LIMITED time you have when you arrived in St. Moritz.
It was beautiful and it was nothing short of great. Would love to return.
Loved every minute of it. It is worth the long day. We visited Milan in January so it was cold. Our only complaint was on the train riders were allowed to put the windows down to take pictures. Although the train is heated we froze all the way to the top. So if you are visiting in the winter keep that in mind. The views were breathtaking.
We left Milan right at 7am. Our tour guides were Serena and Sonja, both of which were very informative. The bus does make a stop on the way to the train and again on the way back to Milan for restroom breaks. Our stops in Tirano and St. Moritz were very short but part of the experience was riding the train. Would recommend this tour and would love to go back in the spring or summer.

Absolutely breathtaking. From the time we departed Milan, on the roadtrip to St Moritz, then the rail tour through the Swiss Alps, it was all just amazing. I would recommend a night stayover in St Moritz to appreciate the spectacle of everything that surrounds you in that area. A must for anyone travelling to Milan.
This was one of the most exiting one day trip I ever had, you cannot expect more from a day than this. I Love to guys on board, exceptional instructors / guide. They know how to handle the visitors and guide them and get the fun they want /deserve.!
Enjoyable moment with stunning view!!!
Our guide is very informative person, she shared the trick and tips during the tour.
Can't say more, just enjoy the scenery and captured the best moment when you cross the Swiss Alps.
Did the tour in October. The trip with Bernina Express was fantastic. As we looked at the window, we saw beautiful Swiss alps. Really enjoyed the journey. Not much to do in St. Moritz.
This is a fantastic experience for us! We enjoyed it very much though it was a very long day, from 7am to 8.30pm! The magnificent view of the Swiss Alps, the beautiful St. Moritz town with hand-made chocolate stop a wee bit short though as it would have been better if we get to spend a little longer time in this town, made it all worthwhile the visit! It is defiinitely a highly recommended tour! Thank you! :

What a delightful tour - incredible scenery guaranteed - and too many photo's to post because you will not put your camera down guaranteed.
Our driver was Sergio and our Guide Serena. The tour company was Zani Viaggi in Milan - who did the majority of the Milan coach tours we did.
We went from Milan to Tirano and had lunch, then caught the train at 1.00pm. The train ride is 2 hours and 11 minutes exactly Swiss precision time. We then had 1 hour in St Moritz but not being ski season it was very quiet. We managed to find some shops open and got some nice souvenirs, but the rest was just looking at the window displays because they were closed. You meet your coach at St Moritz and return to Milan about 8.30pm. It's a very long day but it is so worth it. If you are visiting Milan, you simply must do yourself a favour and book this tour, it's wonderful.
We did our tour on 4th October and being Autumn, we did still see quite a lot of snow which was wonderful.
This trip was the highlight of our stay in Milan. It's an early morning, but on Christmas Eve there were two buses mostly full. The buses operated as two different groups and our guide was wonderful about managing the numbers we were used to smaller groups given the time of year. The drive itself to the small Italian border town is interesting, but nothing beats the two hour 15 minute train ride. Great window views with windows that come down easily to take pictures, plus ample space between cars for picture taking. We had little time in St. Moritz, but that was fine as we shopped for chocolate and had hot chocolate. Because of the time of year the drive back was in the dark but this is a great trip.
It was an awesome experience during the trip. Scenery was beautiful and moreover, it was off-peak season hence no crowd.
However, guide was a little passive. Didn't speak much and did not provide much instructions. Times where instructions given were not clear hence tour mates were confused. Overall it was worth the effort and time.
Sonia is a great guide. She is very smiley, polite, helpful. During the whole tour she gives a lot of information, answers every question with patience. Route of the train is absolutely perfect. Specially if its your first time in Switzerland, i'm sure you'll enjoy it too much.
Loved this tour! The train ride was spectacular! St Moritz was fun and we had just the right amount of time there. Lunch was good - yes it's early but since we started the day early I was ready for lunch and the food was very good. The bus ride back was long but the beginning, driving down the mountain is amazing. Great views and the driver did an excellent job navigating the many switchbacks. Nice nap for the rest of the ride before getting back into Milan.
That trip was the greatest that I have ever had!.. in fact, It was a dream which came true because of the fabulously beautiful sceneries and splendid landscapes... I believe this is a must that everyone should do.
Beautiful by Nature ! The Bernina Express is an amazing experience.
excellent trip highly recommended.
trip was on time, train ride is better than expected. great road and excellent service.
Amazing! From start to finish you won't see prettier towns or more breathtaking views.
