This tour should be reorganized to include an over-night stay at a hotel in St. Moritz. One hour is not enough time to enjoy the wonderful sights once you arrive in SM. Additionally, I thought the "suggestion " by Viaggi TOurs to eat in Tirano at a local restaurant was a total rip-off! Thye seved paper thin slivers of bresciola salami with a few drops of olive oil as an appetizer and then served a a plate of pasta with plain red spaghetti sauce. The meal was topped off with a half carafe of horrible red wine known as, I kid you not, Inferno wine! It could have doubled as vinegar!. Horrible. Shame on them for charging 16 euros per person for this rubbish! You could have enjoyed a less expensive meal elsewhere in the town. Also the tour guide "Ada" 's english was unintelligible as her accent was too strong.
Antonella and Eddy were amazing tour guides! They pointed out sights to check out on the way to Tirano and gave us a lot of information about the region we were travelling through on the way to Tirano to take the Bernina Express train. The train ride itself was breathtaking, it's definitely a can't miss experience. Well worth it.
I was disappointed. First the bus that took us to Tirano was old and seats were hard as a rock . The train experience was good . Nice scenery and comfortable. In Saint Moritz we had no time to do anything. 45 minutes to go downtown and come back , so we spent all that time walking back and forth and had time for nothing except bathroom. Also disappointed that we came back by bus all the way to Milan , almost 4 hours in that horrible bus . I gave this trip a “very good” just because of the nice landscaping across the Alps.
The tour itself was fantastic. Tour guide was knowledgeable, informative, well organised and friendly. She was very professional. The Swiss Alps and stops along the way we’re great. However, bus driver was terrible. Slept at most stops on the way there, slumped over the wheel when driving, drifting over the road, attracting the ire of many other road users. He was obviously sick or Very tired. Either way he shouldn’t have been driving. Based on bus driver alone, would NOT use Zani Viaggi tours again!!!!
