Mainz is a very small city and there are not many tourist attractions as well. You can do all the important site visits by walking, therefore there is no need to take this tour.

This tour was laughable. Seriously. It was so bad that most on the tour were just laughing at it. Save the 9 euro each and go have a couple beers with a local. You'd get better information.

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
