It was absolutely fantastic! The most scenic train ride I've ever been to. Loved every minute of it and was in awe the whole time. The train rides slowly through the Alps on a curvy railway allowing you to really soak in the views. The option to hop off and on of any train gives an opportunity to see the hot spots along the route: from charming Swiss villages to the very peak of Alps with glaciers on display. The whole trip felt like that of Chihiro's from Spirited Away. It was somewhat surreal. I was so pleasantly overwhelmed with the whole experience. Would most definitely recommend to anyone of any age!

Laura the tour guide is good and nice. The driver of the coach is really impressive especially when passing the curve road going back to Milan. The tour itself is amazing aside from waiting for the other tourists who did not follow the instruction and were late to come back to the meeting point for half an hour.

This is a truly amazing once in a lifetime experience which will forever be in my memories. The Lake Como boat trip was beautiful and the trip to St Moritz and the train ride through the Swiss Alps was out of this world.

Very informative guide. Lots of beautiful scenery! Very enjoyable.

Very nice excursion recommended to everyone wonderful trip
