What people are saying about Frankfurt

Easy to get to if you park in the Römer car park (couldn't take public cars with my mother) The trip was very interesting, with great weather. It's crazy how different it is in Frankfurt - on the one hand upstream and in comparison downstream - once beautiful, once predominantly industrial and residential area with high-rise buildings Very informative announcements Very helpful and friendly staff A very successful excursion that is worthwhile

Very relaxing Christmas cruise. Very informative too. Food an beverage menu was a nice surprise, only downside was there wasn’t enough staff to take your drink/ food order which meant we was half way through the cruise before our order was placed and another 10 minutes before it arrived, we then felt rushed to drink and eat it.

A very enjoyable trip up and down the river, with the lovely sunny weather it made for a very relaxing 2 hours. Plenty of room on the boat, good food and friendly crew. Great views of the Frankfurt skyline with good commentary in English and German. We'll worth taking this trip.

It was amazing...the explanation was in english so we have the opportunity to know all about Frankfurt

Nice tour, you should definitely do the 100 min tour, not just the 50 min tour.
