Super easy to book - use digital pass, very convenient on smart phone. Very friendly and personable staff who explained some of the sites we may enjoy and how the tour worked. Appreciated having a guide who spoke English! Wait time at stops was negligible. Commentary was good, enough information to give a good understanding of Frankfurt.

it was difficult to find the meeting place. A taxi driver was able to help us. Unfortunately, the meeting point is incorrectly specified online. When we finally found it, our day tour was great. There are 16 stations that are approached again and again during the course of the day. We kept getting in and out as we pleased. Great tour

The experience was excellent. The tour was in my language. The driver was really nice and informative very helpful. I recommended this hop on hop off bus to anyone that wants to discover all the beauty of Frankfurt without the hassle of driving around.
