A wonderful journey, relaxing It doesn't matter which side that you sit because the views are on both sides of the train as it travels through valleys and winds its way up through the Alps. Snow topped mountains, stunning waterfalls, deep valleys with turquoise lakes. Highly recommend.

We considered taking the train, but ended up driving here. Glad we did that. We could spend as much time as we wanted to take pictures at the various places. There are so many places here to take awesome pictures. Flowers blooming, glacier on the mountain, unreal colors of the lake, animals grazing, bikers going up the mountain, even got... More

I can honestly say thati was not disappointed by the truly spectacular and awesome views. When you stop at the highest station you get 20 min to enjoy the veiw, although I would... More

Just one week earlier there had been an unseasonable snowfall over the Alps and as the train snaked its way up the valley past small villages and grazing cattle the land became blanketed in snow. A bright cloudless sky overhead and the gentle sway of the carriage made this one of the most effortless and spectacular trips I have made.... More

Spectacular views and a very comfortable ride. When leaving Chur the scenery is not all that great but about half an hour into the trip that changes! At the summit the train stops for about 20 minutes and you have the opportunity to stretch the legs and have some refreshments in the Café/restaurant, while overlooking some waterfalls and snow, till...

The train ride to the Bernina pass and down the other side to Tirano was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been

This is a great panoramic train where you can see how wonderful has been the God´s creations. The mountains in the Alps are truly amazing and can´t even wonder what you are seeing. The villages settled in the valleys are like a dream of peaceful. It is very unbelievable how the viaducts were build in some rocky places and how... More

This was a special trip, as a group it was a very pleasant way to enjoy a very scenic part of Switzerland. Would go again, probably in Summer next time.
