“Such a fun way to spend an hour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

They follow their route precisely, so you can use it for transit. And you get off your feet with a cold drink and cheerful German music to see the city. Lovely!!

“Best with some friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

This is a multi dimensional experience; a tourist trip, a chance to sample the local speciality - Ebelwoi and trip on an old tram; put it all together with a small group and it is great fun. There is a free Ebbelwoi as you board and you can purchase more as you go round. Take care, Ebbelwoi is potent and the conviviality of friends adds to this. I've done this three times, twice with friends/colleagues and it was always considered good fun.
If you just want to see the city take a tourist bus.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

We did the 2 hour tram ride through Frankfurt. While I did not expect a whole lot other than a tram ride, we were still disappointed. Sure, we did get a two hour ride but at night, other than while crossing the Main River, the sights and scenery is nothing special. We like Frankfurt a lot but this is just a long tram ride with no photo ops and only one pre-arranged stop (for a toilet and smoking stop). You cannot get on/off (we knew this in advance).

We did enjoy ourselves while tramming around, talking and drinking bier. But we could have done that at a local pub and saved the Euro 270 cost.

Avoid this.

“Excited sighseeing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Good option for those who do not have much time and want to see the city taking a good Apple wine. They have a apple juice for kids, too!
