    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.

    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.

    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.
