Zermatt Village Matterhorn Area plus Mt. Gornergrat Small Group Tour from Zürich
"The meeting point needs some sort of signage etc. I ran around for over 25 mins trying to find the group meeting place. I had to ask so many people and received no help. One gentleman was finally able to point me in the right direction. Once on the train and the sweat being wiped away from trying to find the meeting spot all was spectacular the rest of the day. What a fantastic experience!! Getting the first glimpse of the Matterhorn on the train, I got so excited I could hardly wait to see it up close. Back down to Zermatt I was super excited to see this charming town. We didn't have much time there which was a bumber as I could have easily spent a few hours there eating and doing some shopping and going in some of the magnificent hotels. Would love to return one day...."..."

"Ms. Dominique was fantastic - there is no way my wife and I could have worked out all the multiple quick train connections without her. It is a long day but well worth it with the most incredible views on and off the train. The ability to go the top of such a high mountain peak on a train makes this special and very easy and very safe. We stopped off at Bern before the end of the trip before Zurich for dinner also which is recommended. There were not many other tourists being on a Thursday on 25th January so that was a bonus also so would recommend this time of year to do trip."..."
