The full-day trip starts with a visit to Titisee-Neustadt, a pretty town in the heart of Germany's Black Forest.

Stop At: Zurich, Zurich

Check in for your tour at the bus parking Sihlquai. Settle aboard your luxury coach, departing central Zurich for the drive north to southern Germany.

Pass By: Schluchsee, Schluchsee, Baden-Wurttemberg

The drive lasts just over 1.5 hours, so sit back, relax and take in the postcard-perfect scenery. Pass by Lake Schluchsee, the lush green hills and woods of the Black Forest.

Stop At: Titisee-Neustadt, Titisee-Neustadt, Baden-Wurttemberg

Stop for roughly 2 hours in the picturesque town of Titisee-Neustadt, situated on the edge of Lake Titisee in the heart of the Black Forest. One of the area’s famous exports is German cuckoo clocks, so head inside Drubba – a prestigious clock producer – to see how these traditional clocks are made.
Then, spend the rest of your time in the town at leisure; stroll around Lake Titisee independently, enjoy a boat ride or perhaps visit a café to sample the region’s legendary Black Forest Gateau (activities and food at your own expense). The rich cake -- also known as Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte -- is constructed as a chocolate cake, layered with cherries, whipped cream and lashings of cherry brandy.

Head into the Upper Rhine region to stop at Rhine Falls – Europe’s largest waterfalls – and enjoy a break of roughly 45 minutes. Gaze at the water as it crashes down a drop of 75 feet (23 meters), pose for photos, and stroll around admiring the scenery.

The driver and tour guide were awesome. You could tell they love their job and have a great working relationship. They were so funny

The pre- trip communication was excellent including a Whatsapp chat option to raise queries. Payment was processed as indicated. The Black Forest trip was awesome- although the cake was pretty average…the showstopper was the Rhine Falls experience. Hailed as the biggest falls in Europe, it pales in comparison to Niagra Falls and Victoria Falls but the close up boat ride and the picturesque backdrop make it special! Highly recommended. Laura our guide and Armando the tour driver were superb!

The scenery was beautiful. Our guide was fantastic. I highly recommend this trip and the “upgrade” boat to the Falls.

Raymond, the tour guide, was friendly and made sure his guests had fun during the tour. The boat ride to the Rhine falls was fun and Raymond was kind enough to offer to take pictures of each of his guests when the boat got close to the falls. He made sure we all had memorable pictures. The Black Forest tour was very good. , i.e. driving through the winding route of the forest. Enjoyed this tour a lot. Highly recommend it.
