A great way to explore the old city of Frankfurt, on your own or as a family or group, in 90 minutes. Also with the possibility to take a break in a cafe or at the banks of Main. I loved it.

I thought it was good that there was another reminder by email and also a call from the guide about 1 hour before the start of the tour.
