Excellent holiday, wonderful alpine scenery, and, on the whole, well organised. The hotels in Brig and Davos were good, clean, and comfortable and the tour guide was helpful and entertaining. It was nice to have free time to explore at each daily destination.

The Davao hotel bath tubs were too deep forme---I was afraid I would fall if I took a shower in the tub. All else was fine, Jim Egan
Food in 2nd hotel was not very good, no choice it was simply take it or leave it
All went very well except on registering at 2nd hotel, had to wait 2 hours to be given a room with en suite facilities, having been offered 2alternativesfirst without en suite facilities.
Rail Discoveries is an outstanding company, in my estimation; this was my second tour with them. The less-than-perfect rating is based on the lodging. The hotel in Fiesch was nice and the staff, for the most part, friendly. The food was not as well done as at other hotels I have stayed. The train ride to and from Brig left us eating very late dinners, with no time to enjoy the scenery in either place; perhaps Brig would have been a better lodging choice? The hotel in Davos was mediocre. The room was nice enough for the cost, but the food was not good and the staff barely present if anyone had a question or need.
