Excellent. Even though it was raining in Como the view was spectacular. Driving through the Morjola pass was extremely scary but one of the most beautiful and scenic experience. The stop in St Moritz was a good break. I had one of the most delicious tasting hot chocolate ever and I regret not buying two of the pastries. The Bernina Express train through the Swiss Alps was everything and thanks to Andre who provided the background and history throughout the entire trip. Highly recommended.

A very well organised trip. There's a lot of sitting involved (coach, boat, train) but you get beautiful and scenic views as promised. St Moritz was a bit of a disappointment, would rather explore Como area for a bit longer but understand it would have been difficult to manage timewise. All in all, worth both your time and price - would definitely do it again.

We enjoyed the tour our bus driver Franco and our tour guide Paula were both very pleasant. The tour itself was very nice the boat ride from Verena to Bellagio was Awesome and scenic we highly recommend this tour. The value is truly worth our rating for this tour is 5 star.

Amazing guide and transportation! Definitely worth your money!
