A long day, but definitely worth it! The meeting point for pick up was precise. Our guide and driver (Oleg & Allesandro) were great. Oleg was nice, funny & laid back. He gave good advice along the way on what to expect and pointed out interesting things. Everything was well planned and kept to an on-time schedule. We had about 2 hours in St Moritz which was plenty of time. Our only complaint was that we only had 30 min of free time in Varenna and about 10 of that was taken with the walk back to the bus.

Book this tour early (it is very popular). You will see most of beautiful scenery from the bus or train but your guide will give a lot of interesting information and will tell you when to prepare to take pictures! The views are breathtaking and inspirational! The Bernina express travels at a pace that you can take a lot of pictures and appreciate the mountains, lakes, villages, the snow and trees! St Moritz is beautiful, clean and picturesque! Awesome trip!

From the start of the day until the end, the tour was well organised, with an extremely knowledgeable guide. The coach was comfortable and everything ran like clockwork. It was great to see a bit more of Italy whilst we were based in Milan and, of course, the bonus of visiting St Moritz on a wonderful train journey. We were blessed to have had lovely weather (especially in April!)

Amazing train ride through the Alps. St. Moritz was OK. Ate a good meal there. Boat ride on Lake Como was also good. Oleg, our guide was great. He was knowledgeable and friendly. He even let us know about track 21 at the train station which I saw the next day.

very beautiful landscape. well organised trip. Guide was good. Suggestions- In the trip details It should be clearly mentioned that the train booking may not necessarily be on the bernina express. It doesn't matter much as the route is same.
