We loved traveling in Switzerland but this trip was highly overrated. Though it was comfortable we would have much preferred other methods of seeing the areas. The most scenic aspect was just outside of Zermatt which you will see with any train. We also found that the windows in the Glacier Express were very reflective and made photography quite difficult. I am a painter and only need reference photos which I often take from trains and cars - but the quality was particularly poor from this train. Other travelers quickly put their cameras away. If you want a really great train experience - I highly recommend the Hiram Bingham train into and out of Machu Picchu. For this beautiful area of Switzerland just enjoy any train that gets you to the wonderful town of Zermatt.
