It is a great sight, recommended in fine weather
Aug 2019
The boat tour starts at the Eiserner Steg. You can either sit upstairs outdoors or downstairs in the protected area. There is also food and drinks there.

I recommend the 100 minute boat tour that combines the two 50 minute boat tours. First up the Main to Frankfurt-Griesheim (past Sachsenhausen), then back and down to the Gerbermühle.
When the sun is shining on the deck - the bridges, the Frankfurt skyline, the European Central Bank / Eurotower, or the Frankfurt Cathedral - there are great views.
The padded seating on the deck is comfortable.

Relaxing 100 minutes - enjoy the boat tour and see Frankfurt from a different perspective. The English and German live commentaries are understandable, depending on how quiet the other guests are.

When visit Frankfurt, everyone should do. It is worth and the price is fair.

Cruising in frankfurt
This 100 minute river cruise is delightful, really nice welcoming and professional staff, great views from all angles, the automatic tour guide speaks in German and English and you got a great view of the frankfurt skyline, and directly across the street from the set off/drop off point is the great shopping district, just a wonderful afternoon. You can get food and drinks on board as well and very reasonably priced. The tour itself cost €14 and its 100% worth it.

Friendly crew
This is a perfectly reasonable way to spend 100 minutes and reasonably priced. The drinks, condition and cleanliness of the boat is second to none. The price of food and drink again comparable with onshore prices, if we had discovered this on the first rather than the last day we would definitely gone for one of the dinner cruises.
To be honest there’s not much to see but it’s a pleasant little cruise and we were both impressed.

Amazing sightseeing experience with horrible experience with the cruise
Nov 2019 • Couples
The trip was really nice, but it was horrible experience with the cruise and the crew, me and my wife took a table and we found that below the table and on the chairs was too much broken glass, it could be from the previous trip...so we asked one if the crew to help, his answer was really shocking, that we have to wait because he has to take orders....his attitude was so rude and arrogant....at end we had to call the crew manager to help to be able to sit safe without broken glass...that was most horrible experience in Frankfurt....

The weather was rainy and windy, but the tour and sightseeing was as I wished to be: educational and relaxing. We took a small meal onboard (cake and a juice), and enjoyed 100 minutes of cruising. Would recommend it for anyone.

Nice view of city 100 minute
I took a 100 minute tour and was a good choice. It’s gave ample time to be on the boat and view city from river, gained knowledge on history. Along with this they also offer food beverage you can say it like a floating restaurant so it was nice while sightseeing have drinks and food as well at extra Charge. Worth the tour !!

It’s just on the canal opposite or near to the old town not very difficult to find. Once again a must to do ......

50 minute cruise am Main
Aug 2019 • Friends
We went on the 50 minute cruise, and I'm glad it wasn't longer. The partying guests were so loud I couldn't hear anything the guide said. Also, we were told that to sit at a table inside we would be required to spend 15 euro, which was actually a moot point because they never got around to taking our order. I would have enjoyed some ice cream. The trip upstream was around what seemed to be a construction site or else a place where gravel and other construction materials were loaded for shipping--I couldn't hear what the guide said, remember?-- so it was far from picturesque. Perhaps downstream would be better.
