FonF was very timely and informative in their emails. Once we got through customs, the directions were very clear to the airport meeting spot. From there we boarded the train and went into downtown Frankfurt. Jo did a great job taking us around (I was recovering from a bad break, and she kept the tour to my pace). We had expressed our interests in the emails, and the tour was certainly to our request. We went to a great farmers market and had lunch, and wandered around the main market stalls. She pointed out where bathrooms were if needed. When it was time to return, Jo stayed on the train with us back to the airport and walked with us to the proper terminal. We didn't have to think about a thing, and that was wonderful. It was just a great way to handle a 12 hour layover.

Everything went according to plan, met at the airport, travelled into Frankfurt and had an infomative and interesting tour from an expert tour guide.
Was given a great recommendation for a quick meal and directions back to the airport.
Even checked in a while later to make sure that the meal was up to standard and that we had made it back to the airport.
Highly recommend.

A terrific way to be introduced to Frankfurt and a couple of thousand years of the town’s history.

Dave has put together an excellent selection of places to illustrate his intelligently curated historical facts, and he’s really funny too!

The others in the group were terrific company and it makes a real difference to be shown around a town by someone who has chosen to make his home there.

If you decide to have the famous sausage from Frau Schreiber for your lunch in the wonderful Kleinmarkthalle Dave took us to, I’d have it with the delicious slices of bread rather than the rolls...

Highly recommended tour!

Tour was very reasonably priced and covered a lot of ground. Being led to a good food market and being left to organise local lunch was great.
Dave , our American tour leader, was well informed but sometimes rather glib and superficial.
