As there were only 5 of us it was like we were traveling with a good buddy who just so happens to have tremendous knowledge of the tour. As described in the prospectus, it was a compact input on the cathedral and the old town without ever feeling overloaded. The duration of the tour was also well chosen.

It was a nice informative city tour, the time flew by. Our tour guide showed us the most important sights in the city and on the Rhine. At the same time, the manners and customs of the people of Cologne were explained with a lot of humor and wit. Great tour and highly recommended!

Sascha brought us closer to both historical and modern Cologne with knowledge and wit. The two hours flew by. In the evening the tour had its special charm.

Sascha was a very friendly guide! He made the tour very entertaining and fun. History and history were not neglected! It was a lot of fun.

It was very interesting, informative and fun guided tour in a small group. Recommended! Thanks Sasha!
