This was an amazing experience. Our Tour guide was Abraham who was the best we had in any tour so far. He is kind , compassionate and made sure that we were safe but enjoyed our visit.This is a long day and there is a fair amount of train ride . I recommend this to everyone . The best part is the small group size so easy to keep track of everyone .Thank you Abraham ..we were well looked after in this once in a life time experience.
Great Trip

Abraham was a great guide! He made it fun and interesting! Very prompt and kept us on track! Great day! Zurmatt town was AWESOME! Great shopping and restaurants! The Matterhorn was beautiful!!!
A great day! This was the kind of “tour” that I like - help with transportation but lots of free time.

This was the kind of “tour” that I like (plenty of help with transportation but lots of solo time - you don’t feel like you are trailing around after a guide). Travel was 4-5 hours EACH WAY, but we made some tight connections my family couldn’t have navigated without help. It was a gorgeous day despite a cloudy forecast and we loved seeing the mountains!
It was a blast!

Our group had a lot of fun and binding while traveling to see Matterhorn. And the Matterhorn itself was majestic. We even saw some kite-surfers in the valley. Exhilarating day all in all!
