Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 1,050 reviews

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.

Great insight! I had booked the Skyline Tour because you can drive both routes and also stop at different sights. (1 hour Express and 2 hours Skyline - it says on the front of the bus which one you are doing) The audio guide works well and everyone gets their own headphones. I can only recommend Hop on/Hop off, everyone who hasn't been to Frankfurt should do it.

I love this type of tour! The bus tour offers a great opportunity to see the whole city in just a few hours with an excellent guide in headphones. Thank you very much for an interesting tour!

Great for getting an overview and some knowledge about the city! The driver was very friendly and skilfully drove through the sometimes very narrow streets!

You learn a lot about the well-known and lesser-known places and have a pleasant physical strain.
