Switzerland is known around the world for its natural beauty and snow-capped mountains, but one sight may stand out from the rest: Rhine Falls, the largest waterfall in Europe. Outdoor enthusiasts marvel at this natural wonder on this coach tour from Zurich, where you're whisked to the falls, and the quaint town of Stein am Rhein.

Both Rhinefalls and Stein am Rhein were beautiful. We got the 15 minute boat trip which is enough. We did not have time to explore the castle though which was disappointing. The village is so picturesque but small and the one hour is enough. Andreas, our driver and guide was

Responded 16 Jul 2020
Dear Efi2019s, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your tour to the Rhine Falls & Stein am Rhein! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your tour with our tour guide Andreas and the boat trip to the falls. However, we would sincerely like to apologize for the behavior of your co-travelers. Since the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority, we have elaborated a solid safety concept based on the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG). It is in the interest of us all to comply with these rules and our tour guides are instructed to inform all guests accordingly. Thank you very much for following the instructions and not letting yourself be distracted by the misconduct of your fellow travelers! We hope that over time more and more guests will be accustomed to masks so that we can avoid similar incidents in the future. And if all goes well, you may be able to enjoy our tour without a mask on your next visit to Switzerland - we would be very happy to welcome you again! Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

Rhine Falls was absolutely amazing. I’ve never seen a waterfall before and it did not disappoint. The little town of Stein am Rhein was a nice touch as well - the buildings are all painted with frescoes, there is a nice view of the river, and on the day I went there were a few

An enjoyable afternoon with the family. The waterfall at the Rhine was average. The height of the fall is not very high. There are 3 levels where you can go down and get pretty close to the water. During winter period, the water flow is not as much as summer period - which

We visited in October 2019. We are so happy we did. The falls were flowing hard. It is a very impressive sight to see. There are boat tours that take you up to the edge of the falls and so a small island in the middle of the falls with a lookout tower. We did not take those
