Glacier Express Panoramic Train Round Trip in one Day Private Tour from Luzern

1 review
The Glacier Express train from Chur to Brig is one of the world’s most spectacular train rides, but figuring it out in a new country may be tricky. This experience lets you travel with a guide all the way from your hotel in Lucerne to Chur, and then along the Glacier Express route with a prebooked ticket. Admire the valleys from the panoramic windows, feast on a 3-course lunch, and learn about the region as you ride.

A lovely drive with a fantastic view. Lots of restaurants for food at the top. Lots of places to park.

Without wishing to detract from the magnificent views or very well maintained road, a cautionary note for those who experience vertigo as it makes it difficult to enjoy the spectacular views. Too much focused concentration. We drove Swiss/Italy twice and were most impressed by the road construction. Better than many uk main roads!

the hike up from Brig to the pass takes 4 (to 5) hours depending on one's physical condition. it is a "classic" in hiking. Beautiful, NOT along the road. :-) and more hiking when up there is waiting for you. beautiful setting.

This review about the Glacier Express, this train journey takes you through some of the most beautiful areas. We had really good seats in a 4 person bay with only 2 of us. The meal wasn't really special and we found the salad, which had been substituted for soup, mediocre and a disappointment. Service was excellent, but concentrated on supplying drinks etc. which were of course an extra cost. Don't miss the journey but maybe the meal could be forgone.
