Zermatt Village Matterhorn Area plus Mt. Gornergrat Small Group Tour from Basel

2 reviews
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 Basel at the train station. Together you travel typically Swiss-style by train to Visp (2 hours) and from there by the coghwheel train to Zermatt. 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. Our local tour guide is happy to answer all your questions during the day.

If you are driving to Zermatt you need to park at Tasch and then get a taxi or the train to Zermatt as you need a police permit to drive in Zermatt. What a beautiful place with all their well kept flower boxes and gardens. The view of the famous Matterhorn is incredible. There are various trips you can take by cable car to different areas on the mountain. Lots of people on bikes or mini scooters to get around. Lots of shops, restaurants and cafes to enjoy. A definite visit if in Switzerland

You have to see it to believe it. the kind of perfect shape for a mountain. It stays there in front of you, both big and tall and upright.

Nice village Zermatt, but too crowded. Overpriced as well as you need to take train there, cars are not permitted. It is long walk to the mountain. The mountain itself not very impressive. There are lots of other more beautiful places in Swiss Alps.
