Martin, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Thank you to our driver Francesco. It was a very beautiful trip down to Rhine falls which is magnificent to view from the observation decks. Stein am Rhine was a quaint little town with beautiful history. I would have loved to hear more stories about the history of the town, rather than spend so much time exploring it though. An hour was a long time in the winter, when there weren’t as many stores open. However, it gave us enough time to enjoy a yummy hot chocolate at the bakery. Highly recommend this tour, we had a blast!

Fun day on Rheinfalls! Boat ride on river was awesome, it took us quite close to the falls. Our guide ensured that that was no wait time for us to get tickets to falls & clearly explained old buildings at Rhein am stein.

The whole tour is amazing, Francisca y Armando excellent. She knows the area to perfection. The falls are impressive and the medieval town is like taken from a movie. Beautiful!!

Beautiful view of the falls and an informative guided tour of the quaint historical Stein am Rhein. Farina and Francesco gave a good tour and we would recommend this one to all.
