We enjoyed our tour with Glacier express for various reasons. The organisation was good though the first days travel was too long. We only had 8 couples on our trip including the tour manager, which seemed a good amount.

It was so slow with lots of stops for 10mins which didn’t give you any time to get off and therefore less time at final destination

Everything was more than expected. I had forgotten how stunning Switzerland is. I filled in the questionnaire on the homeward train and that tells you how great I found the tour.
