Great trip! Our guide Sonia was really knowledgeable and helpful. Things to note - take snacks & water! Also there’s not lots of opportunity for toilet breaks (we had 3-4 in the whole day). You can use Euros in St Moritz. Wear comfortable shoes. This was the best thing we did when visiting Milan!

Incredible experience. It is 100 percent worth it. I recommend the tour, they were super punctual and professional in everything. I especially appreciate the work of our guide Marcos and the driver David!

Guide and driver were great. Highly recommended this trip. Scenery was amazing as we were lucky enough to have a clear day.

Great. Very beautiful tour with interested and knowledgeable guide. I recommend.

Definitely worth the day trip. Train ride was the highlight!
