Private Tour: Rhine Falls Tour from Zurich
"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
From CHF113.00
