We really enjoyed this day trip from Zurich. We didn’t leave Zurich until 1pm but still seen a lot in the day! The bus was comfortable and our guide Gallus was very friendly and gave a very informative tour. He spoke on the bus as well as on site at the Rhine Falls and Stein am Rhein. You are free to roam Rhine Falls and Stein am Rhein before heading back to the bus. Stein am Rhein is a beautiful place, it’s like something out of a fairytale. Worth the visit!

A fantastic tour. Very organised & the waterfall experience was something else! The village was very cute- wish we had longer to spent time there. But we really enjoyed the whole experience.

we really enjoyed the tour - the tour leader (Serena) was excellent, very informative and speaks very good English. We went on Saturday 2nd March (afternoon) - highly recommend - thank you.

We’ve been lucky with nice weather. You will not regret to take a boat to waterfall. Monica was nice, telling us additional stories about CH during our trip. Nice experience.👋😉

it was awesome experience... one of the memorable trip.
