Even though the journey took 4 hours it was a well spent time!! Fantastic views, clean train seats, friendly and warm staff, announcements on every interesting spot/view -we would def. recommend it!
Better than glacier Express. The train was smooth and we even stopped mid way because the conductor said we can go down and take pictures for 5 minutes! The bus transfer was fine too, got seated in front which offered the most pleasant view.
The bus that departures from Milan was comfy, had free WiFi which is not that good but can help you to send/receive some WhatsApp/Facebook messages. The guide, Sabrina, is such a lovely and supportive lady.
