The trip went beyond our expectations! It covered so many sceneries and views which are all spectacular. Julia, our guide, shared a lot of information on each of the places we passed by or went to. She gave us ample time to prepare our cameras for each upcoming scenery that we should not miss. She is very engaging and made everyone at ease. Julia is great, a highly competent tour guide.

The very good: The guide Julie was wonderful, the bus (all-considered) was comfortable enough, the sights were quite lovely, and the smaller size group appreciated. The good: The Bernina Train was a worthwhile experience, albeit it stops more times than I realized it would. The little time you have around Como was beautiful (about 30 minutes). Wish I would have planned a day there for me and my wife by taking train from Milan on our own and then a ferry to the different spots around the lake. The not-so-good: We were VERY rushed in St. Moritz. While we thought we would have a little over an hour, we really only got about a total of 30 minutes. Also (and this is on me not being more aware when booking): Not counting the 1 hour 40 minutes on Bernina, you are in a bus or an area train for 4 hours to Turino, plus about another 40 minutes from drop off at Bernina to St. Moritz, and then yet another 4 hours back to Milan from St. Moritz. Views are great: just be prepared for all the "driving/transport time." (Turino lunch is just okay, and I don't think we needed as much time there, but I do understand wanting to ensure enough time for people to grab lunch prior to train).

The most memorable part of the trip was our superb guide Paola. Without her none of these photos will be possible as she alerted us to the best way and places to take photos. Also her explanations were wonderful. These photos are from the train ride but there were a lot of other interesting places she pointed out on the way and gave the history in a way easy to remember and understand.

Paolo was an incredible tour guide with so much knowledge! The tour was very well organized and the sights were indescribably beautiful. This experience was definitely worth the price tag as we met so many wonderful friends along the journey.

This was a very well-organized trip. The guide, Giulia/Julia, provided very good explanations of the Lake Como area. The Bernina train ride and the scenes of the different Swiss lakes and the alps were incredible, and were the highlight of the trip. We were able to do a lot within one day, although it was unfortunate that there was not enough time for the stops. I think this is more of a teaser/introduction to the Lake Como and Italy/Switzerland border area. Then you can come back to spend more time there. In any case, I recommend this trip! But more appropriate for those who are okay with long days (we left Milan Central Station at 8am and arrived at 9PM). Bonus was were got perfect weather throughout the trip!

This was well worth the money! Our guide, Silvia, was extraordinary. She was delightful, entertaining and very knowledgeable. Lucia was also very helpful and kind. It is a beautiful journey and lots of fun. If you have a day, choose this trip! My daughter and I loved it.

MADELEINE_H

Alberto and Silvia were excellent. Silvia is very knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful tour. We enjoyed lake Como and the train ride and scenery were epic.

Jenn_M

We were very impressed with this tour. Our guide, Silvia was knowledgeable and offered information and recommendations throughout the trip. She was happy and upbeat the entire day. Thanks for the great experience, Silvia! Also, Luca stays in contact with you for the few days leading up to the trip so you aren’t stressed the day of. Most of all, the sights are beyond what words can describe!

Michelle C

Before I booked this tour, I read numerous online reviews, which were all positive. So I was confident about my decision to go with it. Several friends followed me and we ended up with a group of our own. Luca was our guide. We had a wonderful time. Enjoyed each moment of the trip with breathtaking views. Even though it’s a very long day, we did not feel exhausted because Luca knew how to pace each visiting site. Luca was professional, polite, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and just fun to be around. The 17 of us still talked about the great time we had on the tour and how much we appreciate Luca’s guidance. Kudos to Luca and the company!
