Went on the Frankfurt Free Alternative Walking Tour guided by Stephan last month. Stephan shared his passion for his home city by teaching us the good, the bad and the ugly. It was refreshing to hear his childhood stories of growing up Frankfurt. We traveled the train depot area, to the red light area, drug haven, financial district and to old town. Stephan’s knowledge and humor throughout the tour was solid. We also saw Spider-Man art and learned of the special markers set in the streets. Tour was also enjoyed by my friends who are lifetime Frankfurt residents. Totally recommend this tour!

We did the tour on Spanish on a Saturday and it was great, even though it was a freezing day in Frankfurt! I would recommend reserving as we were a really large group.
We saw and learnt about the history and culture of the city from the Red District to the great skyscrapers. If you're just going for a weekend I highly recommend doing the tour, you get to see the most interesting places around and have a great time.

We had a great tour with our guide Jenna (apologies if thats not the correct spelling).
She knew lots about the city and it was obvious how much she loves her home.
We were given a no nonsense tour, every aspect in an honest open account including the darker side of the city. We walked through the red light district and saw where drug addicts go to legally consume drugs. We walked through the business area (stopping for bits of information on the way).
After this we went to the town hall and Paulskirche area. This is not your standard 'here's our city isn't it wonderful tour' but more an honest account of the place.
All aspects the architecture and history etc were really interesting and the guides do a great job.

Take the free walking tour, they’ll cover almost most of the basics and must knows. The flow and sense of humor was a plus also.
