Great tour with Julia!

My husband and I really enjoyed the time we spent walking around Cologne with local Julia. She met us at our hotel and showed us all the "best of" places close to us first. These included best place for pastries and coffee, best shopping street, best place for berliners (filled donuts) and more. Julia is very easy to talk to and we felt like she was a friend by the time we'd walked across the train bridge over Rhine River. Along the way, she pointed out interesting architecture and we all shared travel stories. The highlight for us was taking the metro to a different part of the city for a traditional German lunch. If you're looking for an intimate experience in Cologne, we highly recommend this tour with Julia!
