Marvel at the Rhine Falls of northern Switzerland on a 3.5-hour tour from Zurich by coach. In addition to free time to explore Europe's largest waterfall at your leisure, enjoy a photo stop outside the medieval Laufen Castle. On the return drive you’ll pass through Schaffhausen for a glimpse of Munot Fortress, built in the 16th century. During summer months (June to August), you have the option of a boat ride that brings you up close to Rhine Falls.
  • Half-day tour from Zurich to Rhine Falls in northern Switzerland
  • Travel along the German border, passing vineyards and farming villages
  • See the 16th-century Munot Fortress in Schaffhausen
  • Enjoy a full hour to admire Rhine Falls, Europe's biggest waterfall
  • Take an exciting optional boat ride (June to August only) to get right in the middle of the falls!
Start your 3.5-hour Rhine Falls tour from Central Zurich or Zurich Airport. Board your comfortable coach for a scenic drive past the rolling vineyards and charming villages of northern Switzerland alongside the border of Germany. Throughout the tour, hear informative commentary from your guide about the region's sights, history and culture.
After a photo stop to view the medieval Laufen Castle (Schloss Laufen), perched on a forested cliff-top overlooking Rhine Falls, arrive at the site of Europe's largest waterfall. Savor an hour of free time here to pose for photos against the magnificent cascades, which reach 450 feet (150 meters) wide and 75 feet (23 meters) tall.
Take advantage of unbeatable panoramas from the viewing platforms and opt for a summertime boat ride (June to August only; payable direct) that delivers you to the middle of Rhine Falls, where you can admire their full glory.
On the return drive to Zurich, pass through Schaffhausen, where you can see the distinctive circular Munot Fortress, which was built in the 16th century. Your guide drops off passengers at Zurich Airport around midday and concludes at Sihlquai Bus Terminal, making it easy for onward travel.

Fabulous excursion to the falls. The boat ride is a " must do" to experience the full power of the falls. Highly recommend this trip. Go in the morning to avoid the crowds.

Way over priced

This tour has cost me around $60 USD plus 10 CHF for the boring boat ride. Too much for such a short trip to small falls.Nothing special was offered with this price.Definitely do not recommend.
