“Overrated”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Booked the 3 Golden Pass train rides from Montreux to Luzern. The train had mechanical problems on the first leg which caused everyone on the train to miss the second leg. We were diverted onto other trains which took different routes and it was a hassle getting back our seat reservation money plus anyone could get on the train and it was quite crowded with plenty of noise. Not at all what was advertised. Today we rode the Bernina Express from Chur, Switzerland to Tirano, Italy and that was a fantastic journey. If you want to do a panoramic train ride through the Swiss Alps, skip the Golden Pass and do the Bernina Express. You won't be sorry.

“Travel in Style”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We booked the Chocolate Train tour with Golden Pass and loved it! The train left Montreux and went to Gruyeres and then we picked it up in Broc back to Montreux. I loved traveling in the old school train cars. Beautiful wood paneling lined the cars with engraved gold plated numbers indicating your seat. The seats were very comfortable and the route views were just gorgeous. The staff was friendly and helpful. When I come back to Montreux I will definitely book another trip with Golden Pass.

“Quick, Clean, Easy!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This was our first time in Switzerland. We tool the train from the main station up to a village along the way. The train was easy to find, on time, easy to navigate. The price was right too.

“Fantastic scenery”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

This is Switzerland with its varied scenery. Beautiful views of Lake Geneva as the train twists and turns on its journey. As you leave the shores of Lake Geneva you enter the meadows, followed eventually by the views in the distance of the Jungfrau and the snow. Fantastic.

“Our trip”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Well marked coaches and marked reserved seating. Connections sound scary on paper, but work out just fine and we were lugging our own luggage!
