    This tour is good enough to follow self guide. Just get the tickets online and follow the schedule. Make sure you know which glacier express route you wanted to see. I made a mistake thinking that the tour will go all the way to Zermatt but the route I purchased stopped at Bern. So, it was quite a disappointment. Our apple pie was not served in the train but was packed up because the cafe forgot to serve us on time.

It was just great and for me it was the first time I saw the Alps. The tour was bilingual in Italian and English, but the guide managed it really well. The timing was very good, not too long and not too short.

The truth is, the lovely trip, what gave me a low price was the guide in Spanish and the organization, also the stops were many, which I suggest to do less and let some of the visited Sites know longer.

It was a fantastic experience! The train is wonderful, with incredible views and well organized. The way back on the bus also offers impressive views. The stop in St. Moritz is great, very cool city!

This was one of the most beautiful trip I've been on. Everything is very well arranged. And the guides know a lot.

A must visit day trip. Experience of a lifetime. Breathtaking views all along the way to the Alps.
