We were downgraded on the Glacier Express because of overbooking. This was not the fault of GRJ. At the last minute we were reinstated for most but not all of it. It meant we had to travel on later trains to the group. The train journey from Cologne to St Moritz was tiresome and involved changes of stations, trains etc due to the problems on German Rail. This was not the fault of GRJ. However, the journey took 13.5 hours. Our tour guide was brilliant, he did his utmost to get us there as quickly as he could. He was constantly cheerful no matter what was thrown at him. He is a credit to GRJ. Overall the holiday was superb. Lovely scenery, hotels.
The holiday was all that I had expected, well organised, well led and the weather allowed us to see all the views.

Mr J Stratton
Good weather, scenery, and hotels! The situation of the hotel in St. Moritz was fantastic, with views overlooking the lake and mountains. Enjoyed the excursions and the trip on the Bernini express. The hotel in Zermatt could not have been better with views of the Matterhorn from our balcony. Enjoyed our trip up Gornagratt and on the Glacier Express and made the most of our free day by exploring the surrounding countryside. Although the weather forecast hadn't been good, we were exoecting rain, in fact we had glorious sunny days! Even had snow during the night in St Moritz! Perfect!
Stunning views on a classic rail journey
