Don't do this train ride at all, instead you can pick one of Glacier, Bernina, GoldenPass Line, Voralpen Express.
This train is waste of time and money from our recent trip experiences
- Gotthard Panorama Express company is a big cheat, we got cheated in below ways
- Had to pay 48 Frank for me and wife from Bellionzona till Fluelen, even when we had 15 days of Swiss Travel Pass 2nd class. This is reservation charge, seriously we paid 26 Frank total for Glacier Express reservation with Swiss pass.
- Panorama coaches are only for 1st class, this is really stupid of them
- Train travels super fast, you can't enjoy scenery
- After travelling with Glacier and Bernina we had high hopes with this train as well but felt cheated.
- Do NOT waste your money and time on this train
- Only good thing we found is scenic journey and getting to know about Gotthard tunnel history and train travels really slow in tunnel.
Other than this it's waste of time and money
