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.

Johannes was a mine of information about Cologne. A very comprehensive tour that toured right around the inner & outer parts of the city centre on both sides of the Rhine. He knows every nook & cranny of this culturally rich city. We encountered a bit of rain on the East side & we waited that out.

Christian was a wonderful tour guide focusing on the importance of experiencing the way locals do

Well organised. Definitely recommended. Big thanks to our tour guide Peter.

one of the best bike ride ever, with knoweldgable tutor
