Birthday done perfectly
Sushmitha_M, Oct 2022
Top cruise and nice breeze🥰😇 Chilling vibes altogether and had a great 1 hour on water with beautiful city skyline view and lights. blessed and grateful 🤗
Ok experience, but nothing to write home about
Keith_L, Aug 2022
This cruise was ok, but I would not make it a must see experience if you are in Frankfurt. The explanation of the bridge and city lighting was thorough, but that only took the first half hour to complete. If the cruise were shortened to 30 or 46 minutes, then I would consider this to be less boring.
Made me want to live here!

This was a great way to see the city! The lights were beautiful and there was just enough information to teach us about Frankfurt without taking away from the experience. Frankfurt has a vivid nightlife too! One tip: bring a jacket! It gets chilly even after a 90 degree day.
Ibrahim_C, Jul 2022
It was a good and beautiful experience,The Frankfurt skyline by night looks more amazing from the middle of the main , we will do it again.
Very nice, pretty lights....
BarbaraACardone, Jul 2022
Very nice, pretty lights. Loved the story behind how and why the lights at night started and the city created a beautiful experience.
A nice view of frankfrutt
NarayanRao_G, Apr 2022
The weather was very good. With no rains luckily and the feel was more chilly than the usual. The explanation was good just that it should be a little loud

Bored to tears…

An hour of this nearly put us both to sleep. It has great potential but whoever runs this do not care about a positive customer experience..

Good experience with one shortcoming
Andreas_G, Nov 2021
Great boat and friendly staff. The speed of the cruise was also pleasant, as was the bilingual information announcements. One star reducted because for a good part of the cruise they kept the lights on, which ruined the immersion.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Thank you for your feedback, the lights inside are a very valid point, thanks for letting us know!
Very nice, to recommend
SarahJane_G, Aug 2021
It was a very nice tour. The only things to improve 1. It’s only about the bridges and their lights, no other information. 2. You buy your ticket online but then you can’t go on the ship but have to stand in line to get another ticket and this doesn’t make sense. Please use QR-Codes techniques.
Amazing view
Mil_S, Aug 2021
Amazing view. I recommend this trip to anyone who visits Frankfurt. You can see most of the skyscrapers with its beautiful lighting. Great . I loved it.
Response from Host, Aug 2021

Overall pretty good
Richard_T, Jun 2019
Different than I expected. Wish we had gone when the weather was warmer so we could go up on the deck without freezing! If you don’t get a table by the window you can’t really see much either. But overall pretty fun

It was amazing but it would have been perfect had the wi-fi worked.

Marilyn S, Sep 2017
We never made the tour, as we were on the wrong side of the river. There was no information to let us know, just under the bridge, which is where we went. Only, to the wrong side. We realized our error, and ran for all we were worth, but arrived 5 minutes after they departed, and that was the only trip that evening.
Schöne Tour
