The tour of Rheinfall in Zurich, Switzerland is a must! I've been to Niagara falls lots of times, but Rheinfalls is definitely my favorite of the two. With the picturesque backdrop of all that is beautiful in nature, with the waters gushing and being close enough to almost touch it, was very thrilling. It is a sight to see!

Great short trip. If you have few hours to kill, I will recommend taking the 3.5 hours trip. it's about 1 hour drive to each direction and another 1.5 hours in the falls it's enough.

Gorgeous views and you even get up close and personal with the falls. The tour guide was amazing and the history provided on the journey to and from thru some of the smaller Swiss towns made me forget I was on a large tour bus. Loved the falls!
