Experience the unique day tour within a small group to the Matterhorn area, the glacier world and all-year-place of snow in the Alps. You meet your tour guide in Zurich at the train station. Together you travel typically Swiss-style by train to Visp (2 hours) and from there by the coghwheel railway to Zermatt. <br><br>At Zermatt you will walk through the historical part of this alpine village and get many information about the history of climbing the Matterhorn. Your tourguide will lead you after that to the « Matterhorn railway », the coghwheel train that will take you to Mount Gornergrat, the best place for stunning views to the Matterhorn. Enjoy your time at your disposal (approx. 2 hours), where you can have lunch with a 360-degrees-panorama. You will travel back together with the tour guide to Zermatt, where the return travel via Visp to Bern will take place. Your tourguide will lead you to your train back to Zurich.

It is well worth the visit: one gets into the world of old Zermatt, and you get the story of the first climb to the top in 1865... from various points of view. Very well presented and audio guide to support further. A must from my pov.
