This trip is overall good, if you are the type that love to "go and see". Scenic drive at Lake Como, scenic train ride at the Italian/Swiss Alps. This trip covers for a 1-hour boat ride at Lake Como, but if we can also have the free time at Lake Como, that will be better (but I understand there is time constraint).

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 well organised trip with a professional tour guide and driver. defo recommended.

Very interesting passage through the roads of Italy until reaching Switzerland
