The whole day was fantastic! Beautiful drive to Switzerland, St Moritz was outstanding, but seeing the snow covered Swiss Alps from our train ride was the crowning event. Truly magical…

The ride . The tour guide was very nice. But I will recommend to expand on the amount of information provided in all aspect of the tour. Historical and specially around the natural wonders we visited. Most of the tour was fun and lots of sights .Very little insights. You might want to share best practices with City walk and Guru they have certified guides and their tours are free of charge! I will certainly be more careful next time in booking thru La Vacanza Travel etc.
