Very cool event

We really enjoyed this tour right after reaching Koeln. Our host Lars was very nice and managed the whole tour in English to allow everyone to benefit from his knowledge and stories. It was interesting, about rugby in time and very useful to know the proper way to order a beer in a brewery. I strongly recommend to register !!

In der letzten Braugaststätte wollten wir nur noch kurz austrinken und da sind wir gleich vom Köbes darauf hingewiesen worden, dass dieser Tisch immer wieder besetzt wird. Wir sollten uns somit beeilen. Es ging hier um nicht mal fünf Minuten. Da kann aber natürlich der Guide nix dafür. Er hatte sich kurz vorher ganz nett verabschiedet.

Super schöne, interessante und Unterhaltsame Tour. Durch unsren Guide Lukas, konnten wir mehr über die Kölner Geschichte, die Geschichte des Kölsch und noch viel mehr erfahren. Er hat uns auch noch einige "Insider-Tipps" (Restaurants, Bars, Aktivitäten) für unseren weiteren Aufenthalt gegeben. Wir waren rundum sehr zufrieden und hatten einen tollen Abend! Würde ich jeden weiter empfehlen:) Danke Lukas.
