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.

We saw a Rainbow

We were lucky enough to have a bright and sunny day and blessed to see a rainbow. I loved the cleanliness of the vehicle, the punctuality, the scenic views and the clear description of everything we saw on our way by the tour guide Lars. If I had more time I would have done another tour with these guys!!!
Fantastic and Superb

The tour guide was very good with trying to accommodate everyone. It is extremely hard to coordinate people. Nearly impossible when from many different speaking different languages. Had a lovely time we be nice to see the time at Rhein Falls longer then one hour.
Very nice excursion

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.

It was half day trip. Informative and convenient.
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.
