We had a great time- beautiful scenery- celebrating God’s creation. Particularly Poschiavo-the prettiest town to walk around in. Trains were on time- get off and on easily. Windows pulled down- easy to take great pictures. I was nervous I didn’t have the actual ticket and chatted with Getyourguide person- so helpful, quick, perfect, on the way- within 15minutes of getting on the Bernina train. They are the best!!!

It’s value for money what we paid. Get the map of route and when there is turns be ready to take marvelous videos and photos. You missed the chance no worries you can do so while on return trip by sitting opposite sides. Beautiful areas and beautiful nature. It’s always better to stay at Diavolezza to enjoy a complete day and never miss the experience of cable car.

We loved this trip. The ability to get off when we wanted and return when we wanted was fabulous.

All information and instructions were clear about where to go and how to plan your day.

Beautiful experience ... we can't wait to do it again with the winter panorama.
