    It was a nice boat trip, but I found the volume of the narrator very low, as it was sometimes swallowed up by the background noise and you couldn't understand everything. The crew was very nice and helpful. However, I also had the feeling that the hygiene regulations were not implemented. Not everyone wore a mask while walking around and some did not hand in a completed slip of paper. But it was once an experience that was really good in the beautiful weather.

    I went on a Sunday, on a really really freezing cold day (-2 degrees). I didn't expect so many people! It was a little crowded but everyone gets a seat so I was not too worried. It was too cold to go on the top deck, however it was still lovely. Frankfurt is a beautiful city, it's definitely worth spending a little time on the river. I was equally amazed by the staff, just two people serving drinks and food but they do it so efficiently and so quickly! (I suppose that is Germany for you! ;)

    Great tour of Frankfurt

    We booked via the app for the 50 minute tour and It was excellent. Modern boat with good commentary (in English too) as well as food and drinks on offer. We would have stayed on for the 100 minute tour but our day was too busy. Annoying that we had to print the tickets after buying them in an app though.
