    It was very easy to walk to and from the meeting place from our downtown hotel. The bus was very clean and well appointed. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke three languages- accommodating all language preferences in board. The ride was very scenic. The site of Rhine Falls was beautiful and definitely worth seeing. The castle at the head of the falls was also very interesting. The only criticism I can give is that the amount of time at the falls was not enough. By the time we got back from the boat ride we only had 20 minutes to explore the grounds and shops before having to get back on the bus. The time spent at the falls should definitely be longer.

    Very nice experience. Travel by bus was good and the tour guide was excellent and very kind. Waterfalls, scenery, boat ride were great.

    This tour offers a way to get to the falls from Zurich with a commentary along the way. We had ample time at the falls for pictures since we chose not to do the boat tour. You can get very close to the falls for pictures without doing the boat tour and since we have done the boat at Niagara Falls this would be underwhelming. The tour guide spent a lot of time upselling the boat and the directions he was giving us at the falls couldn't be heard if you weren't next to him.

    Our guide Vladimir was great! Extremely knowledgeable. The group didn’t spend much time waiting in line and the falls were beautiful. Lots of steps but the water makes it feel cool on a warm day. The optional boat ride is also inexpensive and worth the views!

    Great tour with a very knowledgable tour guide. Taking the boat into the falls was the highlight of the tour.

    Amazing Rhine Falls Tour from Zurich. We left at 9 am in the morning and were back in Zurich at 12:30 pm. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She also provided really fun facts about a lot of the locations. We were also brought near the Switzerland-Germany Border and then a surprise trip into a small town in Germany. Rhine Falls is a beautiful place. The boat trip was really cool and we were brought so close to the water fall as well. The boat trip is 10 swiss francs per person and payable in cash only. The tour guide sold us the boat ticket on the bus. Couldn't recommend this tour enough.

    Great tour with a fun itinerary and an easy way to get to and from the falls and we were able to do the boat trip which was 15 min and a lot of fun

    Our tour guide Peter - the pinnacle of service!!! His attention to detail, genuine care and his humor made this full day tour very pleasant. We enjoyed this day so much that we asked Peter to assist and connect us with a private chauffer to Konstanz for the very next day at the end of this tour and he went above and beyond our expectations. Best of Switzerland Tours, should feel very fortunate to have a guide as pleasant, hard working and caring for customers as Peter was. . Well be sure to ask for him when we return next year. Thank you Peter for your warm and genuine spirit of hospitality.

    The waterfall itself was incredible, very beautiful and the whole area looks like a painting. The tour guide, Angela, was very informative and friendly, really made the tour a great experience.
