it rained in torrents - but it was still great!

In pouring rain, we have taken this lead. Nevertheless, it was very exciting and interesting. The guide has provided us with stories and information in a very entertaining way. He just had to improvise a bit because it really poured out of buckets. A big compliment to him! The boat trip was okay, you almost did not understand the information about the speaker. But we were happy to be "safe" from the rain and we were a merry troupe so the boat trip was okay. Many greetings from Switzerland! Cologne is always worth a visit !!!!

Cologne old town tour excellent - boat tour ok

The tour through the old town of Cologne was very interesting, funny and very entertaining. The guide gave exciting information very well and with humor. During the boat tour, the announcement comes off the assembly line that it always has a little bit of the preserve feel. In other cities (e.g. Berlin) the announcement comes from the boat driver, this is much more personal and then often has a more up-to-date connection.
