We saw Church of Saint Mauritius, the Matterhorn Museum, the picturesque Church Bridge and some landmarks adorned with centuries-old craftsmanship. The tour guide unfurled captivating narratives of how Zermatt emerged from a farming village to becoming popular for mountaineering. The tranquil beauty of Zermatt was enchanting and this tour will be a memorable one for us.

Had a walk tour of zermatt. Guide seemed tired from an earlier tour. Mostly walked around small area we could have a seen by ourselves. Tour was cut short by 45 minutes. Not worth it.
