Victor immediately feels like so much more than a tour guide - his knowledge and enthusiasm for Cologne felt like we were exploring a hometown that he was excited to share with old friends. Not everything discoverable can be read on a plaque. Our tour with Victor was on the very last day of our trip and we STILL learned so many new and interesting things, even after the past three days of exploring the city on our own. His energy while telling us legends and stories of the town while stopped at various landmarks is truly infectious in the best of ways. One additional thing I noticed is how many locals & shop owners were happy to see him ride by as they exchanged a wave and a quick hello, which tells me that he is a loved and appreciated staple of the community. We decided to book our experience with Victor because of the glowing reviews that came before us, and they did not disappoint. Do yourself a favor and take a ride with Victor to fall in love with a city all over again.

Our driver at EcoRide, Victor, was an excellent tour guide who gave us really good insides of the culture and history of the city of Cologne. It is a perfect activity to start off your trip to Cologne as you will have a quick understanding of the set up of the city and the main attraction points. All in all highly recommended.

Our guide was Viktor and we couldn’t have been happier with our tour. He was very personable in addition to informative. It was evident how much he wanted to show us the best of Cologne. We never felt rushed and we could never have seen and heard the sights in a large group or vehicle. He was on time and even a little early and welcomed us right away. It was so nice to be picked up right at the door of our river cruise and returned with such great memories. We highly recommend this tour for those with walking challenges or not and wish to have a fantastic personal tour.
