What people are saying about Palmengarten

Overall rating

(1,002 reviews)

The bus was clean. Driver was friendly. BUT...the person verifying our voucher was horrible!! The way she spoke was very rude and unfriendly. She didn't want to give us 3 maps even when we told her we paid for 3 tickets. In short, she does not represent your company well. Unfortunately, I didn't get her name but we ride the 11:00 bus at the Dom.

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 was fun, comfortable and safe. The only issue is that, sometimes, the audio guides info does not quite match the location of the bus, and I end up looking around wondering where to look and what the audio guide was talking about.

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.
