One of the best experiences in Switzerland so far! Thanks for the lovely arrangement. It is the best and most cost-effective day trip for someone who wants an off-beat experience in Switzerland with a well-arranged itinerary. Laufen Castle and Rhine falls have my heart! The Laufen castle is so underrated! The medieval artifacts from this castle are such a big reminder of the extravagance of the nobility! And the view of the Rhine falls from the castle is lovely!

I was in Zurich for a couple of days with my partner, but I was not able to plan a perfect itinerary for the trip. Found Thrillophilia on the top of my search list and gathered all the information that I required to make my day outing perfect. Immediately booked the day trip to Rhine Falls and everything went perfect! will opt for thrillophilia again in future

If you are in Zurich even for a single day in summer, I would recommend you to take this trip! I saw the majestic Laufen castle and the massive expanse of the waterfall! And the cogwheel ride offers a panoramic view of the whole place! Just one suggestion from my personal experinence is that make sure you reach the pickup point on time else you might miss your coach and believe me it's not like India where 9 am means 10 am :p

My experience was very good. I had never seen a place like this before. Thank Thrillophilia!
