We should have taken notice of the signals we received from an abrupt and grumpy driver when we enquirer about the price and when it left. It was a trilingual tour but not with headphones. Some descriptions of buildings or places occurred well after you...More

we were able to see much of Mainz and areas we had not yet see. Tour was in German and English, but My impression was that the English version was not as detailed as the German version. It does give you a good overview of...More

It costs nine euros. it is a short trip and it is not very comfortable. The plastic on the windows is old, scratched and yellowed, which makes it a poor viewing of the city and bad taking picture. The ride is good for kids and...More
