Was told there would be information throughout the trip to listen to. However, there were only 3-4 sound bites at the beginning of the long trip. We had to wave a waitress down to place our order after those around us had been served their food already. The actual glacier is not viewable from the train and our designated trip cut off before we even reached zermatt and the matterhorn. The shopping break in Chur was quaint, but the drop off in Brig was lackluster.
