Response from Zani Viaggi V, Responsabile relazioni pubbliche at Swiss Alps Bernina Express Rail Tour from Milan
Responded 2 days ago
Dear guest, I am sorry you did not fully enjoy our tour. But I would like to say that the purpuse of this trip is not to get to St. Moritz as fast as possible. Our tour is design to enjoy a one of a lifetime train ride experience. Climbing the Alps with a pace of another time, savoring every twist and where every turn is a photo opportunity. If you want just to visit Sankt Moritz and take a ride on the Bernina Express, one day is not sufficient. Best regards
