Overview
To see the Matterhorn live - it's a must for every Switzerland traveller. Visit the alpine village of Zermatt with it's typical chalet style, surrounded by high alpine peaks, the Matterhorn in face all the time.  With your tourguide you discover the old part of Zermatt and the Gornergrat mountain, from where you will have all this "postcard" views to the Matterhorn.  Our tourguide accompanies you on this tour from the starting point, shows you the changing landscape and answers your questions about the country and its people. The tour guide knows the way and shows you a few places away from the tourist flow.

Guide (Michael) was pleasant, professional and informative. Seemed intuitive about what information to give and when. Good use of time with this small group tour ( two participants) and flexibility with photo stops. Train-hopping with the locals was fun!
