The Bernina is one of Switzerland's most scenic railways, climbing more than 1,800 meters, making it the steepest railway journey in the world. Round-trip transfer from Milan is included in the tour. Your rail journey begins in Tirano, Italy, and takes you all the way to the world-renowned Swiss mountain resort of St. Moritz. Tirano is a picturesque Mediterranean town in a mountain setting dotted with palms and oleanders. The train ride will take you from an altitude of 429 meters up to 1,829 meters! You’ll cross the spiraling viaduct at Brusio and the Bernina Pass to the alpine valley known as the Engadin. On the journey you’ll marvel at the scenery of the Alps.

Good basic overview of area. The transportation was good and helpful to not worry about wrong train, bus, etc. After going, we could have easily navigated it all ourselves and been able to personalize more. We didn’t learn much at all from our guide & wore ear plugs to listen whole time but mostly just got sore ears and littler information. We had to wear masks on bus but bus driver did not wear.

The tour guy was very attentive to make sure that all passengers were on board at each stop. He did a great job informing us and making sure that we were safe. The views were absolutely breathtaking and the trip was the highlight of our state. I was suggest packing snacks and water and tissue as some bathrooms did not have tissue or soap.
