In general, luck was that the weather was super nice and that was at the end of October. The booked time, from 11:00 a.m., was perfect because there wasn’t that many people. It was a round upstream with automatic comments around Frankfurt and its buildings and bridges. The way back, it would be turned around to get back to the starting point.

A very enjoyable trip up and down the river, with the lovely sunny weather it made for a very relaxing 2 hours. Plenty of room on the boat, good food and friendly crew. Great views of the Frankfurt skyline with good commentary in English and German. We'll worth taking this trip.

The tour was very nice, unfortunately the audio guide was too quiet over the speakers. The booking via Getyourguide worked very well. Picking up the tickets at the box office meant a long wait. On the ship Primus Line the tables were full of used dishes, empty bottles and full of ashtrays. The overall impression on the ship was catastrophic.
