It was a beautiful journey. The Green Train track and scenery around and the natural beauty of Swiss valleys and mountains are difficult to be told its for our eyes only. The creator has put all the beauty and I am thankful to him for giving me this opportunity to see such a beauty. The Lake cruise is great. Interlaken is a bit costly city so try not to shop there if you are travelling from Milan.

The service was extremely efficient and quick. The quida explained many things to us about these beautiful islands.
