Frankfurt was the last stop in our tour to Prague and Germany. Thank god we saved the worst until last. We took the "City Tour" not far from our hotel to see old Frankfurt. The bus was dirty, damp, and cold; the damp and cold I can understand as it was December. Each person was given a set of headphones... More

This is a review of the bus tour (green line, blue bus, automated audio commentary). Given that Frankfurt is not a very interesting place to visit (not its fault), I would have hoped that a bus tour would do a slightly better job of pointing out the few nice parts and explaining the history. The voiceover is not always easy... More

Make sure you tell the driver where you want to get off a they don't always stop at each stop if no one has indicated they wish to get off or no one waiting to get on. Best way to see notable city sights

It took ages to decide which tour to take because the reviews were very mixed. I chose this tour but not expecting much. I'd almost just recommend the 1 hour tour but for a couple of bucks more it's probably no real drama to get the hop on hop off. We actually didn't get off at all. Frankfurt, to me,... More

Tour gave an additional option of a chair lift - 5 euro - not included but well worth it - cheaper than usual price of 10 euro. The "wine tasting" was a farce, one hour wasted. Tour was suppose to include time to view regional city and shopping - 15 minutes were allocated to this - only because other tourists... More

We went on this tour the same day that we go to Frankfurt. It is a great introduction to this city. Frankfurt is quite small so the tour wasn't that long. On the tour you pretty much learn everything about the city, you see a lot of sights. It was very interesting to see frankfurt and I learned some things... More

Good to know city centre and main buildings arounds. But you can also walk by yourself the same way and explore the area too from the square to Rhine at least.

There isn't that much to a tour of Frankfurth. It's a combination of new and old together. From our double decker bus we were able to see how much Frankfurt's growth of the centuries has continued and we had great views. Our tour guide was an English speaker, but not native. That made him hard to understand. Also he spent... More

The guide was nice and pc at the start making friends with everyone, the bus travelled for hour to the river town where... More

My brother and I on a whim decided to take this tour. When you first book this tour you will get a email letting you know that you've booked it. Just like most things you decide to book but when you show up to the office (meeting spot) you come to find that the office is kind of run down... More
