Description

Well-known for its snowcapped mountains and beautiful lakes, Switzerland presents another picturesque gem: the Rhine Falls. Be dazzled by the enchanting landscape of the countryside as you make your way to the falls, then capture this majestic flow of water with your camera.

Pass by the local vineyards and idyllic villages of the northern Switzerland region and see the Munot Fortress, a circular 16th-century fortification in Schaffhausen. The fortress, built as a feudal obligation, dominates the old part of the Medieval town.

Reach the Rhine Falls, Europe's biggest waterfall, and enjoy the spectacular view. An average of 185,000 gallons (700,000 L) of water cascades over the rocks every second. Appreciate the magnificent nature all around you and savour every precious moment. If you're brave enough, you can take an optional boat ride to the centre of the falls to get the best panoramic views.

You have one hour of leisure time to marvel at this nature spectacle before returning to Zürich. The way back leads a short stretch through Germany before arriving at Zürich Airport, where departing guests can end their tour.

Amazing tour but we were given only 45 mins of free time at Rhine falls which was too less. Tour staff and the driver was amazing and too courteous so overall great experience
