Every day is tour day, we walk rain or shine (or snow) and all holidays! Please try to be on time as the tours leave punctually. We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes. Flip-flops or heels are not very good for walking in the city for 3 hours. It always helps to be prepared, so check the weather forecast to see if rain, snow, or very cold/hot weather is predicted. If weather extremes should occur, our guides will do their best to keep you dry, warm, or cool depending on what is needed.
We visit the highlights of the city while we tell you about the extensive and fascinating history of Frankfurt. We take you places that the tour buses can’t and we leave no carbon footprint. We have searched high and low for the quirky bits of Frankfurt that will make your sightseeing tour memorable and we do it all for an affordable price.
