We'll never forget the natural wonders, hikes, meals, and rich conversation. I can only hope we have such a wonderful experience again. - H.H. - Utah


After arrival in Zurich we will provide you with a rail pass that can be used to get you to Zermatt for the start of the tour. The group will meet on the first day around 3:00 pm in the hotel lobby for a casual meet and greet and a short excursion, followed by a welcome dinner.


As this tour ends in Zurich, you can easily return to the airport for onward travel or a return flight home after a final breakfast in the hotel.
