The train ride and the views are indescribably spectacular and a great way to see the alps for the first time and in a very short period of time. Even the bus ride from Milan to Torino is very scenic. Our bus stopped in Tirano at the Shrine of the Madonna di Tirano and this church which was completed in 1513 is a beautiful church full of history. The carved organ is a must see.. If you stop for lunch in Tirano before boarding the train, I strongly recommend that you pass on the tour guide's reco and go to the Merizzi restaurant for a fantastic meal.
One way the experience on the train ride could be improved, is by having a tour guide that more proactively advises the group when the best views are coming. Our tour guide did none of that. We passed waterfalls and great views so quickly that it was nearly impossible to snap a photo unless you were looking through your camera lense the whole time, which of course is impractical to do because one must experience the trip vs photographing it the whole time. That's why some simple advance notice of the 5 or so most picturesque views that were coming up would have been a very simple thing a tour guide could have done.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour , guide was very informative and knowledgeable, looked after everyone, the train journey itself was fantastic!

The views are breathtaking,stunning and worth the cost ! The bus driver was great, and felt safe with her driving, and the guide gave good information around Milan as well.

My husband and I booked this day tour as our 2nd Wedding anniversary present. It was worth every cent and more that we paid. The scenery is breathtaking and we have some extremely beautiful photos. If you have the opportunity to do this day tour I highly recommend that you do it, you won't be disappointed.

The Bernina Rail tour was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip to Italy!
The Coach Ride to Tirana was nice and the town was quaint and quiet ( this time of year)
The fun began with the ride itself. Hours of breathtaking scenery and lovely towns in the Alps.
Time in St Moritz was short and expensive. After a long day, the coach ride home was fine.
Had a great day, would do it again!
