Having booked a trip with Riviera travel to Lake Como, Italy, we were lucky enough to find ourselves scheduled on a trip in the Bernina Express to St Moritz. The weather was lovely, despite the area having had storms and generally unseasonable weather over the previous month apparently...great for our trip on this amazing train journey. Travelling up, up and... More

The day starts very early at 6:45AM, which may be difficult for some getting from their hotel to the the bus site. English speaking guide was great and very knowledgeable as we drove up the Italian Alps to meet the Bernina Express train through the Swiss Alps. Passing through the Lake Como region was a bonus not to mention the... More

My wife and I booked this ticket after reading details on the 'Man in Seat61' website. We stayed a night in Zurich then at 6.30ish caught the train from Zurich to Chur, 8.30ish Chur to Tirano then a regional train 13.00ish from Tirano to Milan in the one day. We had perfect weather and visibility. The trip was superb, it... More

We booked the Bernina Express through Thomson's so we only did the highest section of the trip which we were informed was the most scenic. First disappointment was the normal carriage & not the glass roofed one in the brochure. However, filming out of the open window was fine.Certainly couldn't fault the breathtaking scenery, but I wish the train had... More

We travelled from Lugano to Tirano by bus with wonderful views. Then onto the train in Tirano to St Moritz. The way the railway curves round the mountain valley is exciting. It did the same near Filisur when we left St Moritz for Chur

Booked a day trip via Viator. Comfortable bus to Tirano before boarding the train after lunch for the trip to St. Moritz. Our weather was beautiful, and the scenery was outstanding. It had been 30 years since I was in Switzerland, and you couldn't wipe the smile from my face....in my opinion the most beautiful place on earth. The train... More

Another alpine train which we took from Davos to Tirano, comfortable with commentary through loud speakers, easier to understand! Think that the Glacier Express was a bit more comfortable but with equally exceptional views.

The train ride was breathtaking!! I was visiting a friend in Milan and we decide to sign up for the one day tour. When I arrived in Milan it was rainy and unpredictable so we both had our fingers crossed. Well the day turned out to be fantastic (sunny and a picture perfect 75 degrees). Even our tour guide was...

This train ride was fantastic! We were fortunate and had a beautiful clear day for our ride from St. Moritz to Tirano. The views were simply amazing. We were very happy we made the effort to get a van and driver to get us up to St. Moritz for the trip. Do be careful when you schedule. The train runs... More
