Views were spectacular as was the train ride. It was such a relaxed way to travel and see the beautiful sights. The cable car ride provided a smooth trip to the refuge and once we finished our lovely breakfast there were many trails to walk ( summer season) others were also enjoying the refuge but it was not crowded. Other stops on the journey are also well worth the walk and look to take I the incredible views

The tour is well paced and you have a good opportunity to see Lake Como, Bellagio by boat, from Varenna. The highlight was definitely St. Moritz by the Bernina express train and the beautiful road trip down by coach! Very friendly tour guide and great driver too!

Amazing, full day. A beautiful contrast to the great days we have had in Milan city. Would have loved more time in St Moritz but all in all a special and very worthwhile day. Guide and driver superb

Fantastic day out. The guide was excellent and the bus driver made the trip safe and comfortable

If you are travelling in winter wear adaptive shoes (non slippery)
