    Everything about this trip was lovely. Very well organized I enjoyed the tour director. The history and information she provided was excellent. The scenery was beyond any expectation I had. I highly recommend it!

    The hotel shuttle driver picked us up at 6am, he dropped us off at 6:15 and said the next bus comes at 7:30.
    The tour guide was unprepared, wasted time getting headsets working so took away from tour time.
    Bus driver did not know how to turn on USB ports and we did not have wifi as advertised.

    Totally worth every penny to take this trip and ride. The scenery alone was breathtaking and our guide was very knowledgeable.

  • 27-Aug-2019

    The Swiss Alps are very impressive. Taking the Bernina train through the alps was a highlight. The tour itself I didn’t find to be all that attractive. I found the sights to be more enjoyable.

    It was a tiring but super worth it tour. I just wished there was an overnight option for this tour. But overall, it was worth the time and money spent. Will so it again in winter!

    Scenery was beautiful. Would not recommend the coordinated lunch. Plenty of better restaurants nearby. A little tight on time to explore, but overall awesome trip and great guide.

    It was absolutely breathtaking experience. It is a long day so be ready for it.
    The tour encouraged you to eat at a selected restaurant for 16 ero. Don’t do it. The food is absolutely terrible. I so wished I didn’t waste my money or time with bland food
    Not enough time in Switzerland but the train ride is worth the purchase

    This tour should be reorganized to include an over-night stay at a hotel in St. Moritz. One hour is not enough time to enjoy the wonderful sights once you arrive in SM. Additionally, I thought the "suggestion " by Viaggi TOurs to eat in Tirano at a local restaurant was a total rip-off! Thye seved paper thin slivers of bresciola salami with a few drops of olive oil as an appetizer and then served a a plate of pasta with plain red spaghetti sauce. The meal was topped off with a half carafe of horrible red wine known as, I kid you not, Inferno wine! It could have doubled as vinegar!. Horrible. Shame on them for charging 16 euros per person for this rubbish! You could have enjoyed a less expensive meal elsewhere in the town. Also the tour guide "Ada" 's english was unintelligible as her accent was too strong.

    Antonella and Eddy were amazing tour guides! They pointed out sights to check out on the way to Tirano and gave us a lot of information about the region we were travelling through on the way to Tirano to take the Bernina Express train. The train ride itself was breathtaking, it's definitely a can't miss experience. Well worth it.

    I was disappointed. First the bus that took us to Tirano was old and seats were hard as a rock . The train experience was good . Nice scenery and comfortable. In Saint Moritz we had no time to do anything. 45 minutes to go downtown and come back , so we spent all that time walking back and forth and had time for nothing except bathroom. Also disappointed that we came back by bus all the way to Milan , almost 4 hours in that horrible bus . I gave this trip a “very good” just because of the nice landscaping across the Alps.
