We only have half a day and hence this trip was prefect for us.
Our tour guide was knowledgable of the local area for the trip out and back. She did advocate taking the boat out to the rock in the middle of the falls for $8 Swiss Franc but following a Trip Advisor ti we were happy just taking the walking path up next to the falls. We were very surprised that after picking us up at tour Swissotel, they DO NOT drop you back off at your hotel but leave you downtown and you have to get your own way back. In our case it worked out that we could easily catch at train for 4 Francs each but may not have been so easy for others!
While I enjoyed this tour, the Rhine Falls didn't quite compare to Niagara which I visited 10 days later. Still great scenery throughout the day.
We enjoyed this tour. The little trip across the Germany boarder was a nice bonus to see the different architecture.
Fantastic trip.Very nice experience.Went right through the falls and on top of the viewing gallery.Excellent guide by the name of Ms Gloria.She made our trip more exciting and she gave lot more information about Switzerland and Zurich which no other guide gave us before(we had taken 4 more excursions in last 4 days).But I failed to understand why they picked us up from Movenpick airport hotel at 8-20 am and again came back to the airport at 9-45 am.They could have picked us at 9-45 am and made our tour more comfortable.
Very nice tour, great guide. Unable to take the boat trip not offered. Would suggest another hour there for lunch to enjoy the falls. The falls were beautiful and scerene .
Our half-day tour was fantastic. As it was low-season the falls weren't that busy. Our guide was quite knowledgable and kept us informed about points of interest during our bus journey. Not sure I'd recommend this during peak-season as the falls would be swarming with people. Still an amazing sight!
Our trip to the Rhine Falls was lovely. My elderly parents loved the entire experience, especially the way in which it was handled by the travel agency. In particular the driver was excellent and the guide was good. One irritant was the need to buy separate tickets for the boat ride to the falls. That should have been part of the tour.
Nonetheless I would recommend the tour
Beautiful falls with a short crossover into Germany on the way back.
Nice tour, boat ride a bit expensive 8 Euros per person to go to the middle rock to take photos. 2 min boat ride but nice photos of the falls from the middle rock.
I loved it. The falls were amazing. The drive to the falls and from it were simply breath taking.
The falls were amazing. Would have liked to have spent more time there.
A wondeful half day trip. Falls were amazing. Good chance to see some of the countryside as well. Guide and driver were both excellent. Would higly recommend this tour.
Loved it., the falls are spectacular. And we especially enjoyed the commentary given by our tour guide.
The Rhine Falls are very beautiful and the tour is well organized. However, I think it would be fair to include the boat trip to the Falls in the tour rather that offer it as an option. This is the only way you can actually see the Falls properly.
The tour to the Rhine Falls was great. We enjoyed the drive through the small village on the way to the falls. Mother Nature helped out with some rain so the falls had lots of water.
If you have only just a few hours to spare this is a good tour. Do take the boat trip to get near the falls as much as possible.
Well planned tour, however very tight timeline (avoid if you want to have some leisure time at the falls). The guide was very good.
