We had one day in Basel to visit the Matterhorn and Abraham made sure we saw and did everything on our list. He picked us up at the hotel, negotiated the trains, gondolas from Zermatt to the Matterhorn Glacier Palace, enjoyed spectacular views at lunch, teenagers were able to walk in the snow, and still have time to shop in Zermatt before train back to Basel. Thank you Abraham for sharing your knowledge and making this a memorable day
