    It was not fitting that we had to pay our drinks extra in every new location. Suggestion: Offer a carafe of tap water or mineral water in every restaurant, whoever wants something else can order and pay extra. At the early Kölsch there was a little rye and two slices of cheese for two. Suggestion: two rolls would have been appropriate.

    Wonderful afternoon in a very funny round

    We were a very small group, six of us moved through the southern part of town. We got to know a few fantastic restaurants that I will definitely go to again. There are also some interesting stories about Südstadt. Our guide has a warm and funny way, thanks ahhh what was the name ... Mareike?

    This is in German! But hey it’s a food tour and we had a blast. The tour guide Nadia? was extremely helpful. She did the tour in German and then quickly told us highlights in English (yeah!). Good walking tour and you get to explore a historic/trendy neighborhood in cologne. The food is diverse and we tried all the different cultures of Germany. There’s even beer! The guests spoke some English too so it was a good time some English some German plenty of yummy eats/drinks.
