We arrived in Frankfurt as the first stop on a longer holiday and did not really have much planned (which is unusual for me). We saw the Primus Line ships on the river and found out that they have a 50 minute option or a...More

The staff on this boat are excellent, very attentive. We had many beverages (well priced) and the bathrooms and boat are clean. Good way to spend a rainy afternoon sightseeing with some colleagues.More

We took the 50 minute cruise up and down the river main. We sat on the upper deck (open air). The beer was great and the view was awesome. However, the audio commentary wasn't nice. The beer prices were reasonable. Overall, this was a great...More

I have a 24 hour layover in Frankfurt and wanted to see the city. This is a great way to do it. The tours go for 50 or 100 minutes - I think the 50 was fine. The presentations were clear in English and you...More

Well organised, nice boat. What can be improved is the audio guide which was assured by speakers, but since it was open space it was difficult to follow which information was provided in both English and German. A cruise is offering a chance to see...More

This is a not to miss tour. Join the one that starts at around 6:00pm or later, it ends post sunset so you essentially get to see the city from the waters while the sunsets behind those cottages and then you see the city skyscrapers...More

A pleasant way too spend the best part of 2 hours and get an introduction to the city of Frankfurt and its history. Admittedly it isn't the Paris trip on the Seine, but interesting just the same. You pass by the "'old" city, rebuild after...More

There is something inherently pleasant about floating down a river, but that's about all this boat had to offer. Views were very ordinary, the boat was crowded and there was no wifi. Skip the boat, do something else.More
