Overview

Journey through idyllic vineyards and farming villages to Rhine Falls, Europe’s biggest waterfall on your private tour from Zurich. Travel by minivan through northern Switzerland and see the splendid medieval Laufen Castle before reaching Rhine Falls. The Belvedere panoramic trail takes you to the viewing platform above the 75-foot (23-meter) falls. With hotel pickup and drop-off included and the option of concluding your tour at the Zurich Airport, this is a wonderful way to end your vacation or get a quick taste of Switzerland’s natural beauty when passing through.

Highlights

  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver

Begin your private tour with morning or afternoon pickup from your centrally located Zurich hotel. Ride in a comfortable minivan through the Northern Switzerland countryside near the German border, passing through a famous wine-making region and seeing quaint traditional farm houses in the village of Marthalen.

Continue to Schaffhausen and delight in the town’s intricately painted houses with bay windows. View Laufen Castle, which dates back as far as 858 A.D.

Arrive at Rhine Falls, Europe’s biggest waterfall and spend one full hour marveling at this natural wonder. Take the Belvedere panoramic trail right to the top of the falls, or take a thrilling optional boat ride to a large rock in the middle of these dramatic falls for a closer look. Being able to get so close to these 75-foot (23-meter) falls allows you to really feel their power and force.

Throughout your tour, your knowledgeable guide will tell you about the sights you pass. A private tour is a much more laid-back, personal experience than a big bus tour, so feel free to ask as many questions as you like and get your fill of photos.

On the return journey pass Schaffhausen with its 16th century Munot Fortress, then pass through Germany briefly on your way back to Zurich. Disembark at Zurich Airport if you wish or continue on to your hotel.

Visiting Rhine Falls when you are in Zurich is a must. Our tour guide "Monica" was excellent. She was knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information during the tour. She helped us to purchase the tickets for the boat ride. She was great with kids and answered all our questions. We really enjoyed the tour.
