amazing trip of a lifetime would absolutely recommend it the scenery I have no words true truly describe it’s beauty 💕

My wife and I had a wonderful time on this excursion. We booked several months in advance and were assigned optimal seating on trains and bus. The assigned hotels were nice and centrally located. The scenery was breathtaking as we were fortunate to have great weather. I highly recommend the Gornergrat bahn ride in Zermatt; it is expensive but worth it.

The train rides were fantastic. The Gornergat Excursion was well worth it. The Glacier Express and the Bernina Express trains were very scenic. Note that the Bernina Express requires a SmartPhone with Internet Access )there's onboard WiFi) to listen to all the audio. The bus ride to Lugano was just so-so but it did have some interesting views.

Ce fut extraordinaire et tout était parfait. Mais je n'ai jamais vu un voyage aussi peu renseigné. j'ai dû téléphoner trois fois pour avoir des précisions et tout n'était pas encore clair. Il faudrait absolument mieux renseigner la brochure.
