Overall rating

It only served me for the green line and there is another red one, so I had to pay 9 euros more to be able to board on site. It is worth it to get to know the city. Upstairs you can't see anything if it's not open top as was the case and many hulls are damaged.

It really suited me that I had this kind of transportation in Frankfurt: to see all the main spots and hear and learn about the city. I loved it. I stayed two times the whole tour. It was really practical for a tourist.

With bright sunshine and the perfect temperature on the deck of the hop-on hop-off bus or on the boat tour, it was a wonderful, relaxing day.

A very pleasant walk through the center of Frankfurt. Yas, the guide, is charming and makes the conversation and the walk very pleasant.

Elfi was so nice and she explained with a lot of details We recommend her
