Old streetcar decorated (we thought it looked like the artist got his inspiration from the Beatles "yellow submarine") and set up to see the sites. Go with a friend, as it can be loud with the chatter. variety of people - families, young couples, old couples, tourists and locals. Ride is 50 min, with a 10 minute break at the... More

We were part of a large group and spend a few enjoyable hours touring Franfurt drinking beer and apfelwein. However one needs to walk around Frankfurt to really appreciate the beautiful buildings and churches

We enjoyed the tram ride, complimentary pretzels and drink, the views of Frankfurt and surrounding area. Fun for adults and children alike.

In one hour you get to see some of the main attractions in Frankfurt. During your ride you can enjoy a bottle of applewein and pretzels, which is included in the fare. To be honest, I prefer the local beer but if you visit Frankfurt some applewein is a must. In short, good value and a fun way to see... More

My friends recommend this attraction to me and I'm really pleased they did. The Ebbelwei Express (applewine express) is a cool way to spend an hour and see some of the major sights of Frankfurt while enjoying their very own home industry brew, Applewine. The tram trip takes about an hour and costs €8/person (which includes a 250/300ml bottle of... More

I had one day to spend in Frankfurt and chose this is my one tour as it sounds fantastic. I'm sure it is, but it would have to show up for me to know. I checked with the tourism office and they had already heard of this complaint but could not comment as it is part of the public transportation... More

Took a date on it that had never been to Frankfurt before. In nice weather a great way to tour the city and the most unusual date she had been on. Was a hit!

This is a fun concept: you get on an old tram, have a bottle of traditional applewine (ebbelwei) and some pretzels and watch the city go by. Good if you just want to sit and relax with your friends or are tired of walking. Not really as much fun as you might expect. The service was friendly and you get... More

For 7 euros, you get to ride in a circuit around the main part of Frankfurt, but there is no narration or anything, so for that, take the 12 euro bus tour that has narration in a variety of languages through headphones. On the other hand, you can get off or on at any of the several stops, and you... More

7 Euros to ride around a crowded tram, and drink a bottle of apple wine. I was expecting a little naration with the ride, maybe a little history, info on traditions, etc.
