Highly recommended

Tour was good. Our guides Rebecca and Trudy for both the tours were very friendly. We had a great time at Rhine waterfalls. City tour was great with the cog wheel train ride.

What to expect

Combine two of Switzerland's popular tours and get the best of Zurich city plus get to see the massive Rhine Falls up close. The tour starts bright and early and heads straight to Northern Switzerland the majestic Rhine Falls, and then heads back to Zurich for the city's most iconic landmarks. Meet up with the guide or get picked up from Zurich airport then head straight to Laufen Castle. Admire the scenic landscape on the way to the castle - the beautiful wine region filled with charming villages and quaint homes located close to Germany. Once you arrive at Laufen Castle, walk through the castle grounds then visit the mighty Rhine Falls, the biggest waterfalls in Europe. You have an entire hour to explore - take the panoramic trail to the view point, or ride the lift and get to see the falls at work up close. Once you're done, head back to Zurich via Germany for another scenic bus ride. Upon arrival at Zurich, you'll have 3 hours of free time and lunch (at own cost). After lunch, meet up with the tour group in the city center and then take the tour around the city. Pass by Zurich's landmarks like the Swiss National Museum, Lake Zurich, and more! Take the cogwheel train uphill for some fresh air and for a better view of the city, the vistas, and the snow-capped Alps. After that, you'll cruise around the university quarter where you'll pass by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Zurich's art museum. For the last and final stop of this full day tour: Old Town - home to guild houses, St. Peter's church, the Grossmünster church and the Fraumünster church. You can choose to end the tour here and explore the rest of the city, or ride back to Limmatquai - truly, a day well spent.
