This was the best tour. There were only 3 people for this tour in December 2018 so we did the tour in a beautiful black Mercedes sedan. Our guide, Thomas, was the best. He was informative and friendly. Because the group was small, we were...More

It was raining and cold but the tour bus was warm enough. The translator audio was sometimes hard to hear and understand. It took us around the financial district, the Hauptbahnhof and along the river where there were lots of people mulling around and Christmas...More

I took the 45 minute tour bus from the main entrance of the central station and was completely disappointed. The pre recorded narration was not always properly timed with the highlighted sites, long gaps of silence while people were hopping on and off the bus...More

Took the city tour.Frankfurt is not a tourist place and if you are visiting other places not very advisable since no much tourist attractions.Only thing is ECB building and an old cathedral.

I expected a fully-narrated city tour from a bus. Instead, you go to the address and it's a small hole-in-the-wall 2nd party seller. You get your "ticket" and wait for your guide. He then walks you to the main train station a few blocks away,...More

A very easy way of seeing a lot of the city in a short space of time. The bus was very tired and dirty, the driver was grumpy but the tour guide very informative. The half hour stop at the rail station was a pain...More

We have done "Hop on-Hop off" bus tours in many European cities. This was by far the worst. First, Frankfurt does not lend itself well to this type of tour. The sights are compactly located and usually just off the bus accessible streets, so you...More

Frankfurt city tour run from airport (8 Replies)
I have a lovely layover in Frankfurt in May. I have found Frankfurt on foot tours, they look great and will meet me at the airport. But the cost is 75 eur for 3 hours and we will be restrained by time as it will be in the evening. Then I found on the airport website that there is a tour at 7:30pm that does a 2 hour tour of the city from the airport for about 30 eur, you find your own way back. Do any of you know of this tour? Is it a good tour, will I get to see all the highlights of...More

I have never heard of this tour, but it sounds like something ETS might provide, a basic airport - city transfer and while we do this, here are some headphones to listen to while we drive around. Do you have a link for this tour that leaves from the airport, drops you off in the city and then lets you find your way back on your own?
