I booked a tour for myself and several work colleagues hoping it would all work out. It did and it was perfect! We started right on time and didn't have any problems finding the meeting point. Our group included colleagues from different countries so we opted for the tour in English. Again, absolutely fantastic and no difficulties understanding any part of it. Sascha shared his knowledge while walking around the outside of the cathedral and the old part of Cologne (Altstadt), adding some other entertaining anecdotes about the city that you probably won't find in other guides. It was a lovely afternoon and two hours very well spent!

Our guide, Sasha, was very informative and very helpful. Our schedule became difficult after a train delay, but he was very accommodating of our shifting schedule. We enjoyed the walking tour very much.

Sasha was extremely personable and knowledgeable. his English is very good and he often has jokes to accompany the information at each site. Meeting him was a joyful highlight of our trip!

Eine sehr kurzweilige, informative Tour, die ich nur empfehlen kann. Auch für Menschen aus der Region gibt es Neues zu erfahren.

Unique cologne tour with an experienced local, who has a great attitude explaining.
