This is an enjoyable tour because of the many scenic vistas and charming locations seen while travelling with sufficient time to enjoy each stop. Even if you are not a Heidi fan, the Grandfather “museum” does have an authentic collection of tools for the period of the book and gives a good sense of what life would be like living in such a house in the Swiss Alps.
The tour left almost on time (10 min late). But we reached on time in Black forest. It is nice. Time to see everything is a little less. Then we reached Rhine Falls. on time. Nice view. Time to see is little less.
We reached back on time. The printout of the voucher was promptly accepted. Everything went smoothly.
Although we did buy the cookoo clock from the store which had the demo as a part of the tour, there were many other shops that also sell the cookoo clock. Wish we had known that so we would have compared prices. Overall, very nice trip.
Professional, comfortable and educating excursion.
We would not have gone into Germany had this excursion not been available.
Loved this tour, wish we could have stayed at the falls longer but given the time frame we had it was definitely worth it. The tour guide was friendly and the bus was comfortable enough for my whole family.
We were expecting a nice ride though the country side, but got MUCH more. Very informative, almost non-stop narration about what we were seeing, as well as history, and geography of the area.

We had a multi-lingual tour guide who provided a splendid and commentary in both English and Spanish with interesting facts and figures about the towns and villages that the tour bus travelled through from Zurich, via Shafhaussen, crossing the German border at the Rhine River and traversing the Black Forest before arriving at Lake Titisee. The briefing on how cuckoo clocks are made and how they function at the Drubba factory at Lake Titisee was most captivating. However, the "original" black forest cake we sampled near the Drubb factory was slightly disappointing. I preferred the black forest recipe in Malaysia which was smoother and richer in flavour. The other highlight of the tour was the Rhine Shaffhausen falls. We had brilliant evening sunshine when we arrived giving us splendid photography opportunities. Regret we had no me to take the boat ride to the base of the falls and feel the spray in our faces. We had a great evening tour!
Lovely guide, Ana was really friendly and information. The humble village in the midst of the Blackforest is beautiful. Almost like a fairytale land. Adequate time for you to appreciate the town and enjoy a piece of the original Blackforest Cake. The Rheinfalls was magnificent and definitely worth visiting. Grab your tickets and indulge your great summer afternoon at the countryside.
You will be only going to visit the village near black forest. There was a photo booth you could wear German traditional costumes and take pictures. You have the time to explore the village and eat black forest cake there. Overall this tour is good.
I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide and driver were wonderful. Our visit to the cuckoo clock demonstration was so interesting and fun. I would have liked this tour to start earlier so we could have enjoyed more time in Schwarzwald (Black Forest). I only had time to visit the first half of the town. The Rhine Falls location was beautiful. Sadly it was raining by that time but it didn't stop me from enjoying the view. I would have liked to take time to go up to the castle at the top of the hill on the Zurich side. Again, our time was limited. Overall though, I would recommend this wonderful tour.
The tour to Lake Titsee in the Black Forest region and the Rhine falls was good. We didn't get to do the boat ride at the Rhine falls, which was disappointing. We felt we spent more time in the bus, as the journey was long.
I was a bit disappointing, I think this trip is overpriced for the value.
There were a long drive for the Black Forest for not so much to see.
It absolutely poured the whole time. Unfortunately, they won't give you a rain pass. Since you spend 90% of your time on the bus, the rain prevented me from taking any pictures at all because the bus windows were covered in rain drops
It was just ok tour....could have been much better.The tour started at 12:30 which is very late and then we got only 30 mins at Rhine falls which was very disappointing....the time just flew by. we could not enjoy at all. Please start the tour early. !!!!! Not recommended at all.
