A RECENT REVIEW OF THIS TOUR

My 10 year old daughter and I had a great time with Thomas. He took us to three castles, a village with houses from the 17th century, a formed walled city, a fortress, and of course the Rhine Falls. This is my third trip with one of my daughters and choosing a private guide rather than a group tour was definitely the correct decision. My daughter’s review “amazing guide, good sense of humor, great explanations”. Definitely memories that will stay with us for a long time.
