Heading back to Canada from Malta, my wife and I had an 8 hour stopover in Frankfurt and took the opportunity to explore the city. We did some research online and found Frankfurt On Foot walking tours. And so glad we did! We did the private tour and David met us at the airport upon arrival. After introductions, we immediately knew we were in for a fun and interesting day. After sorting us out with carry-on storage services and subway passes, we were in the centre of town within minutes. David took us through several of the attractions and landmarks such as the shopping area, financial district, historic churches, Jewish ghetto, market and walking bridge. We had a great lunch in the square and he even found us a store to find a Xmas ornament to take back home. He is extremely knowledgeable on the site and its history and his dry humour made it all the more enjoyable. We highly recommend this tour if you are passing thru Frankfurt and ask for Dave!

My walking tour with Friya who was fantastic! She's very nice and super easy to talk to. There were only two other people on my tour so it was practically private! The tour gives a great overview of many of the important landmarks in the city and a lot of the historical context. I came away with a lot of interesting trivia about Frankfurt I never would've known otherwise. Would highly recommend this as the first thing you do in Frankfurt to help get the lay of the land and some inspiration for places to go back and check out later

Our tour with Greg was absolutely phenomenal! He perfectly tailored the tour to fit our needs, and masterfully balanced rich and fascinating historical details with hilarious and engrossing stories. I think I would need to go several more times just to be able to fully appreciate the level of depth his tour has to offer. An absolute must and well worth your time!

Like many travellers to Frankfurt, we were on a stop over to somewhere else. As we only had one day to see the city, we decided to do a walking tour to see a lot in a short time.

For this tour, our guide was Dave, an ex-pat American who has called Frankfurt home for 16 years. He was such a great guide for the tour, funny, knowledgeable and has a real love for this city he calls home.

The tour starts with Dave explaining the history of the city (in a fairly quick and engaging way) and he also talks about the culture and people of the city.

Our tour ran to about 4 hours, and there are a few rest jobs during the tour. The 'lunch break' at the amazing local market, where there is so much delicious food to choose from.

In the course of the of the tour, we covered over 6km, almost all of it on flat ground.

We have done a lot of walking tours in many cities, but this was certainly one of the most memorable, thank you, Dave for making our day in Frankfurt so great. I really can't recommend this tour enough if your travels take you to this lovely city.

The tour cost 14 euros and is great value for money. Our guide Dave was informative and had a great sense of humour. The tour last about three and half hours and takes you to various places in Frankfurt. So if you've got a few hours to spare, I recommend this tour
