We (me and my friend) had a beautiful day on this trip and we very much enjoyed our guide Sara. She was well informed and she cared about the tourists (unlike the guide from the yesterday trip to Lake Como with Bellagio and Lugano day trip from Milan that forgot about us and left us in Switzerland to get back to Milan by ourselves. Neither the guide or the GetYourGuide cared about this even if we paid a lot of money for that trip). Sara counted the tourists at every meeting point and even searched for the missing ones. She got us all back safe and happy to Milan! ( I actually wonder with how many passengers the other guide returned to Italy). Please be aware of this and travel safe!

Really enjoyed this trip. Sadly St Moritz is ‘closed’ apart from a couple of cafe/restaurants but a walk round the lake was lovely. The scenery from the train was stunning.

Well organised trip across the various different parts of the lake. Definitely worth doing

It was a good excursion. We saw lots of interesting sites.

Best trip from Milan. Very good guided experiemce!
