One of my favorite places to visit on this tour is Zermatt, which sits at the foot of the dur Matterhorn. Zermatt has no motorized vehicles. You travel by electric golf cart or horse and carriage. One of the most beautiful alpine towns I have ever visited. You will love Zermatt as I do once you visit.
