It was amazing, i can freely say that spent one of the greatest days on this trip, full of new emotions, beautiful sightseeings, amazing places, the views from the train OMG… trip is very well orginized, with professional guide and excellent, safe driver.

Great guide, his information was very important specialty while we were riding the train, the guide prepared us on which side of the train the next view is going to be in , so we could watch or take pictures properly.

A great day out. Although I would have preferred the last bi as the second activity after short stop. This would mean we come down from St Moritz . Just a suggestion

It was amazing experience!the panoramic view of the lake, mountains and of course the bernina train journey was awesome I love it!
