Felix knows so much about architecture, food and other countries. He went way over the time limit and did not even try to charge us - in fact, he actually bought us coffee! Other guides have brought us to restaurants when we did not want to spend time eating and then expected us to pay. We asked Felix if we could grab something to eat and he actually tried to pay! Of course, we did not allow that and we gave him a well deserved tip. Thanks Felix!

My tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city of Frankfurt and the food. It was a very pleasant experience, the food very tasty, and the pace non stressful. I did the tour with 2 stops for food. It was a lot to eat in a short period of time, basically 2 full meals in 3 hours. Also the price was a bit excessive even with the food and the time spent with my guide. My excellent review rating is for the quality of the food and tour experience.

Was a really cool tour in Frankfurt, more like an outdoor show/theater. The city guide is incredibly good at playing with his voice and likes to frighten you from time to time. It was a bit difficult to spot him at the rendezvous point, but you can recognize him by a red flashlight and a plague mask in hand. So all in all exciting and informative, like a live audio book.

Our family enjoyed our walking tour. Our guide guided meet us at our hotel and gave us a great overview of the city. We especially liked that we were able to request specific interests to have the tour fit us.

Nice way of getting to know the night life of the city and meeting new people!
