Expert opinions & guides

Bernina Express

What to see

Climbing the Alps in extravagant loops while exclaiming at the scenery seen through huge panoramic windows on the Bernina Express from Italy up to St Moritz.

John Cockerill, Tour Manager

Gornergrat Mountain Railway

What to do

The Gornergrat railway in Zermatt, Switzerland. A 30-minute train ride aboard a 19th-century electric cog railway delivers you to a spectacular viewing area overlooking the Matterhorn and Gorner Glacier, at the foot of the Monte Rosa massif. Viewed on a day of clear blue sky, this is an amazing experience, especially when an ibex turns up unexpectedly to pose for a photo!

Patricia Niroumand, Tour Manager

Grindelwald

What to discover

Grindelwald, Switzerland - most travellers based here think of the nearby train to the top of the Jungfrau (and rightly so), but don't forget the cable car directly from the town to the summit of the First - a fantastic ride, particularly so after a fresh snowfall. Go towards the end of the day to avoid the crowds of skiers and have the cabin to yourself!

Brian Packer, Tour Manager

“The tour apart from a problem with a Scotrail train was good despite inclement weather. Food at BW Crianlarich was excellent as were the staff made us all very welcome I’d give it 5 stars . Jacobite Train trip excellent despite the Scotch mist , also the Loch Lomond trip, and our coach Driver Brian was excellent. Last but not least our tour guide Gareth was excellent throughout the trip. In short a really good holiday and thanks to all involved in making it so. Regards Ian Whitfield
