The most memorable was the Roman walls. But I did enjoy the recreations of the old city almost as much.


It was a very well done tour and so was very impressed with the historical facts and the sights I saw


First time I used self-guided audio tour with GPS feature and found it easy to follow and very informative. Definitely worth the price! Worked out great since I was traveling solo. You can go at your own pace and spend as much time at each stopping point as you would like. Got some great pictures from it too. Very enjoyable.


Excellent introduction to Frankfurt. We did this first day and it is well worth it. It takes you around the streets in a loop, including back lanes with lots to see and learn about. Takes 35 mins so very good synopsis.
