The train was very comfortable but, unfortunately, on the day we traveled, the conditions were not great for seeing the sights as it was quite misty. We took the shorter of the trips on offer, from Chur to Zermatt, and were glad we did as...More

The scenery itself is stunning, but the service we got on the Glacier Express was extremely disappointing. We ordered two meals onboard and waited an hour. Our place was set up with plates and everything, but no food. Everyone around us was getting served. The...More

This journey was such a treat, the weather cooperated so that we saw amazing mountain vistas, loved it. Only disappointment was the attitude of staff which was less friendly & helpful than we expected.

We took the Glacier Express from St Moritz to Zermatt. It was February so snow everywhere. You must reserve a seat. We chose to travel in the panorama carriage. It cost a bit more but to view the towering mountains through the roof was a...More

We boarded the train at Chur and travelled all the way to Zermatt. We booked in advance, probably as early as we could to make sure we both had a window seat. We also booked the 3 course lunch, which consisted of soup, pork and...More

We took the glacier express from Zermatt to St Moritz whilst holidaying in Switzerland. This was by far the highlight of the trip. We had already booked tickets and reserved seats online months in advance, allowing you to book window seats on either side of...More

We travelled from Zermatt to St. Moritz using the Glacier Express. The journey was very enjoyable. As it was a fine day our cameras worked overtime. The train did not hurry and it was quite an experience. If at all possible take a seat on...More

We have twice taken the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Chur in eastern Switzerland. Both times have been in winter when the Alps are at their most glorious! Although the trip takes over five hours, the time goes by fast and includes lunch and drink...More

A full on tourist experience, you can do the same route on the local trains and about the same comfort but this is an end to end experience, you probably only need to do it once and in one direction as you can come back...More

The Glacier Express goes once a day in Winter, and costs £19 just for the reservation, never mind the ticket. There are plenty of other trains that use the same route, and give you a choice of times. The only real difference is that the...More

The Glacier Express is over rate ride in Switzerland. The most boring ride in the world with 8 hours of torture and no air-con in the Swiss Heat.... I would recommend normal train from St.Mortiz to Zermatt. I would recommend... More
