Good tour

The views from Gornergrat are spectacular and the guide was very friendly, however it is not worth hiring a private tour because that makes it very expensive, you can see exactly the same doing it on your own.

Mike was an awesome tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed walking around and learning about the history of Zermatt as well as the breathtaking views of the Matterhorn from Gornergrat. Would definitely recommend this tours to others!
