It was absolutely fantastic! The most scenic train ride I've ever been to. Loved every minute of it and was in awe the whole time. The train rides slowly through the Alps on a curvy railway allowing you to really soak in the views. The option to hop off and on of any train gives an opportunity to see the hot spots along the route: from charming Swiss villages to the very peak of Alps with glaciers on display. The whole trip felt like that of Chihiro's from Spirited Away. It was somewhat surreal. I was so pleasantly overwhelmed with the whole experience. Would most definitely recommend to anyone of any age!

It was a great experience! The views were breathtaking! The train and the stops right on schedule. Would do it again if the opportunity came up. Highly recommended!

The Panoramic train is a thing on its own. The views are spectacular and the ride is awesome. Loved every single minute of it.
