Frankfurt from the Main was a whole new view. We booked the 100 minute ride, which is highly recommended. During the second part of the tour, the skyline was even more impressive and the view of Frankfurt was one I hadn't seen before.

the tour was great! we sat on the roof, and we ordered coffee and beer. we went toward the west, more industrial side of the river. would recommend the longer tour

Our tour guide was great, and we met some great people along the way. Loved the restaurant and the wine at the wine tasting was phenomenal.

Peter was wonderful, informational and entertaining. He knows wine, and the region very well. Great tour.

Very beautiful cruise tour and cable car journey. Lunch also great
