The highest alps,magnificent:plenty of pastoral delights but also the majestic splendour of glaciers and high peaks.

“Views are amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Sit back and enjoy this train ride. The views are amazing. From left to right, you will not be let down. We had a 2nd class ticket and i was happy with that. open the window and stick your head out with your camera and snap away. just look put for the tunnels. We got off at st moritz.

“Amazing train journey.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We did this 90min train journey from Italy to Switzerland with a group on a Shearings tour. It was amazing from getting on to getting off. It travels through some breathtaking scenery with views all around as it twists and turns. There is an open air viewing carriage where you can take some wonderful photos. At the highest point you see snow capped peaks, pine covered slopes and cable cars. It really takes your breath away. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

“Bernina Express”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

What a magical journey we had from Tirano to Chur. The Swiss Alps are breathtaking. It was my birthday and the staff came into the carriage and presented me with a bottle of wine. What a wonderful touch. There was snow on the peaks, it was a lovely clear day.

“Valerie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We took The Berinina Line, the highest-altitude railway, across the Swiss Alps from the glaciers of the Bernina pass to Tirano. The scenery was breathtaking from peaks, glaciers and beautiful mountain valleys.
The "Bernina Express" is classed as one of the ten greatest train journeys to take in a life time
and I agree, a trip not to be missed.
