  • "Excellent"    
    Very good trip enjoyed traveling all through Europe on train excellent  
  • "Travel to Switzerland"    
    The journey was very convenient and comfortable.  
  • "Value for money"    
    But the train got delayed and cancelled which made it irritating with family not finding seats fro everyone.  
  • "milan to brig"    
    the trip was good but it would be better if more details on the journey is provided. Like the train stop at domorosola station where we take a bus then walk a few hundred meters with my heavy luggages across a small hill to board another train to connect to Brig, Switzerland. Anyway the service is good and friendly.  
  • "Very comfortable"    
    Awesome trip very comfortable and very easy to book online and use it. I booked the tickets 2 weeks earlier and i could travel in business class at the cost of 2nd class. Never faced any issue related to ticket booking and usage. Highly recommend Rail Europe. Also recommend downloading rail Europe app on mobile which works without being connected to internet and it is really useful.  
  • "Beautiful trip"    
    We enjoyed the trip through northern Italy and into Switzerland. The panorama was a plus, getting there really was more than half the fun!
