"Frankfurt on Foot Walking Tours" is a small, privately run tour company that began offering tours in 2008 by husband and wife team, David and Jo Ator. We celebrated our 11th anniversary of bringing the best of Frankfurt to all of you on 19 June, and we are excited to be working on 12 years!
Frankfurt on Foot is the #1 rated tour in Frankfurt on TripAdvisor with 792 reviews .
David and Jo are both history buffs from Columbus, Ohio, and as long time residents of Frankfurt, are passionate about showing off their adopted city to everyone who joins their tours. They each have their own unique view of the city, so no matter who you tour with, you will gain some special insights.
We believe the BEST way to see Frankfurt is the green way, walking on foot, going inside the many historic buildings of the city, feeling the history that infuses every stone that we walk over.
Our philosophy is to have each person who joins our tour wish that their visit to Frankfurt was longer.
All of the "Frankfurt on Foot" tour guides are native English speakers and all of our tours are conducted in English. If you require a tour in a language other than English, we will be happy to send you links to our tour guide colleagues.
Jo is from Columbus, Ohio. She is a member of the Gästeführer Verein Deutschland, BVGD (Tour Guide Association of Germany)
She is the Point of Contact for the American Kinderfeld Frankfurt, located in the Main Cemetery, and undertook responsibility 10 years ago to care for these special graves. This included creating a Facebook page for others to learn about the grave site of these very small children who were born in Frankfurt to American Military Members.
David is from Columbus, Ohio. He is retired United States Army, and served in Korea, Okinawa and various posts in the US. He is world famous for his dry humor during the tours.

Tour Guide Blair hails from New Zealand and dearly loves Rugby and Cricket (feel free to ask him questions about the New Zealand teams). Before moving to Frankfurt, he spent months backpacking around the world, but is presently working on his Masters degree.
Tour Guide Anita grew up in Wyoming and after finishing college, led tour groups through the US. A few years ago, she traded the mountains of the West for the beautiful, (but flat) historical city of Frankfurt and is happy she did.
