Konrad was a great tour guide and the bus was very comfortable. Not too long of a drive and you see 2 incredible spots, one the Falls and the other a medieval town , very quaint and full of history.

We’ll organized excursion, guide Christina was great. Very much enjoyed the falls. Stein am Rhein was very cute - had forgotten it was part of the tour so it was especially nice to visit there.

Seeing the Rhine Falls is a definite must tour when you visit Switzerland! The drive to the falls through the beautiful countryside is so worth it. We loved the cute Swiss village of Stein am Rhein! It was picture perfect, and we loved every minute of it! We never felt rushed when we got to the Falls. It was so thrilling to take the boat ride that goes close to the Falls. We loved this tour and would recommend it to everyone.

I and a very enjoyable tour of the waterfall and nearby town. It was beautiful to get close to the waterfall and walking through Rhein am Stein was amazing as the architecture was simply magnificent and to hear the history behind it was very much appreciated.

The tour was timely. The tour director was excellent in going above and beyond with Rhine Falls and Steine en Reim.

Good for the transport and visuals, not for the guide.

The guide wasn't coherent or fluent. The places were nice though. If you enjoy seeing the places, great. If you actually want to learn about the place, then no.

Dear Indiepop, Thank you for sharing your experience of our tour to the Rhine Falls & Stein am Rhein! We are very sorry and a bit surprised to hear that the guidance of your tour guide did not live up to your expectations. We have followed up on your feedback with her directly and she has confirmed that she has not received any negative feedback during or after the tour. Not only has she been working with us for several years, but her tours have also received great reviews from other guests. Our tour guides are as diverse as our guests and we are truly sorry that it simply wasn't a match for this time. We still hope that you enjoyed your stay in Zurich and hope to welcome you back on our tours on your next visit! Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

Beat was an outstanding guide. His English was perfect and he did an outstanding job of showing us all the best sights, while giving us enough free time to explore on our own. One of the best tours I have taken.

The falls is really good, best for Insta photos, But check weather forecast before going. I booked the trip in a rainy day and it was kind of very difficult to hold an umbrella and take the selfie🤪. But feel the price is bit higher for this trip.
