This is a great tour on the "Slowest Express Train" in Europe. It's an easy way to see different areas outside of Zurich. With a guide, the transfer for the roundtrip back to Zurich was comfortable. The train from Zurich that we were on ran late, so we couldn't make the expected connection for the return. Our guide quickly determined the alternate train to catch and which track it was leaving from. The guide was also full of information during the train route. He pointed out architectural differences in the farm houses as the settlements changed as well as historic WWII sites. All in all a fantastic day that we would recommend to friends.

The views from the train is amazing. It is a whole day experience, but covers a lot. Food was delicious on the train. The guide that we had wasn’t much of a help, besides getting us on the different trains/ connections. Can easily be done on your own. Definitely worth the time of you have a whole day.

Simply Awesome! No words can define it... Must check-out Bern & Brig too, if you can... Thanks to our guide Rebacca who was par-excellence for making our journey a memorable treat.

The highlight of our time in Switzerland. Our guide, Dominique, was super fun and extremely knowledgable. She knew the answer to every question we asked and we really enjoyed our time with her. Although it's possible and pretty easy to do the trip without a guide, I would really recommend booking a guide. It removes all of the stress and allows you to learn a lot more about Switzerland than you would without one. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone that has a free day in Switzerland! The Swiss Alps are amazing, and the meal on the train was delicious.

loved our guide, this is a full day tour. we visited in december and the sights were amazing, all the countryside covered in snow, just amazing!
the train is very comfortable, the food is good, our guide was very enthusiastic.
i think the highlight ofthis tour was the small town of Brig, i just wish we would have had more time in there, otherwise its a 10/10
