Wir waren mit einem Kita-Team aus acht Mädels bestehend. Die Tour ist gut ausgearbeitet, trotz vieler Baustellen konnten wir alle "Stellen" erreichen und hatten eine Menge Spaß. Kleine Zwischenstopps oder auch größere Pausen sind wirklich kein Problem. Unser Team hat schon den Wunsch geäußert so eine Tour nochmal zu machen in einer Stadt. :-)

Wir hatten viel Spaß auf unserer Schnitzeljagd, die viele Sehenswürdigkeiten mit einbezieht und Informatives zu den einzelnen Stationen bereithält. Die Tour spielt ausschließlich am Dom und in der Altstadt statt, was wir so nicht erwartet haben, aber nach 6 Stunden (mit zwischendurch leckerem Kölsch in der Sonne) und 12.000 Schritten waren wir rundum happy.

Wir 3 Frauen hatten einen tollen Tag. Die Tour war sehr schön und die Fragen lösbar. Wir sind in jede Menge Ecken gekommen, die wir sonst nicht gesehen hätten. Die Pausen konnte man jeder Zeit machen. Klare Empfehlung für einen tollen Mädelstag. Geschlafen haben wir im Maternushaus.
