It was a nice informative city tour, the time flew by. Our tour guide showed us the most important sights in the city and on the Rhine. At the same time, the manners and customs of the people of Cologne were explained with a lot of humor and wit. Great tour and highly recommended!

The city tour was great: informative and totally entertaining. Our tour guide didn't let anything get him off track - not even an annoying group member. Despite the disgusting weather, the 2 hours flew by - definitely recommended!

There is so much things to travel around and with bicycle this is really amazing. Best spending I have ever done. The guide was wonderful. But attention if you have a problem like heart diseases or something be careful.

Very cool bike tour to different points in Cologne. The tour guide seemed very competent and really very friendly. Bikes were in great shape. Always a pleasure and a good alternative to normal tours on foot or by bus.

Great tour because you don't just walk around the cathedral like you would during a visit, but also get to know the other side of the Rhine. Tobi is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain.
