Everything started well and quickly went down hill after that. The audio on the headsets is poor. The driver speaks over the top of the guide. The audio guide is never in synch with the location you're at. I spent most of the tour trying to work out what was actually being described. The bus doesn't run every half hour.... More

We do city tours everywhere we go. They are usually very good, but this one was awful. The tour guide was difficult to hear and understand and often the pre-recorded audio would be running the same time he was talking. Save your money on this one.

This could have been a great tour. That being said the cost was 12 Euro per person. The "hour long" long tour as stated on the signs and tickets was actually 40 minutes. Several of the head-sets in our party of 9 did not work. The recording cuts in and out also. There are several periods of dead air with... More

We had just finished a hop on hop off tour in Munich, which was great. This one in Frankfurt was a major disappointment. Aside for the old run down bus, with audio which didn't work, the driver skipped several stops. Instead of coming every 30 minutes, we waiting over an hour before being stranded at stop 8. Our saving grace... More

This is for the double decker blue buses. Run don't walk away from this tour. We did an on off tour on Paris that was wonderful. This bus is rickety and our seats were wobbly. They were supposed to be pick ups every 30 minutes, we waited over an hour for a bus to arrive. During that time, one of... More

Frankfurt is the commercial capital of Germany and as such there are limited tourist attractions in the main city. The suburbs are worth exploring and further west, along the river Rhein, there are scenic locations where one can spend peaceful days. The city tour takes you to certain market areas where you can purchase overpriced stuff aimed solely at tourists.... More

For me, the tour was disaster. The tour guide was automated, thus it talked about some monuments before we arrived. Also, the route was changed, we skipped the Museum-ufer totally, what nobody mentioned in advance. German language from speakers was too loud, so we couldn't understand the tour from headphones. For me, it's waste of money, it's maybe comfortable, but... More

The best way to do a city tour is by walk for those who have the energy and the strength. This very nice walking tour is offered by the City as well as by private individuals who want to make some money. Decently priced at around 10 Euros, it can take around 3 to 4 hours and takes one through... More

I bought an all day ticket for €19. You get get on and off where you like. The buses were clean and the staff efficient and friendly. The price is worth it although I found the headphone audio a bit confusing I enjoyed it for what is is a good way to see the city.

A 1.5 Hour tour around Frankfurt. Highlighted iconic sites focusing on historical events/areas, hot spots, and architecture! Well worth the tour if you don't have a lot of time in the city. An afternoon well spent!
