    Berlin to Interlaken | David c. | 2013/08/16
    "We rate the trip excellent although personally for us it was too long a trip for 1 day and would do such a trip in stages in future. The quality of the train was excellent with no problems with keeping an eye on our luggage. One negative though, the time the train left Berlin was brought forward an hour (due to recent floods) but we were not notified even though you had our email adress. "
