You should have seen Cologne.... The four of us had already booked the tour from home. Meeting point and tickets all online. The meeting point and time were communicated. The woman arrived on time and deliberately kept the group small. Her explanations were clear and interesting. In itself, the old town of Cologne is clear and nobody can get lost. The cathedral can be seen from everywhere. The 1.5 hours passed quickly. You can take part even if you are not very good on your feet.

As an international group (German, English and Spanish) I booked the city tour in English. Our guide, Mr. Ralph Bleister, was an absolute stroke of luck. He not only convinced with his professional competence but also with his fluency in language and endless humour. He switched between all three languages, knew how to explain everything and also excelled with his enormous general education. The tour was very entertaining and a lot of fun. Thanks again for that.

Great leadership, everything was fine. A lot of information was conveyed in a humorous way. I learned a lot about Cologne in a short time. Not so many dates and numbers, no more like the people of Cologne think, live and celebrate, it was conveyed in a humorous way, even with little songs and shaky interludes. A great tour that my wife and I will remember for a long time.
