It was a great experience to get to know Cologne in this special way. Everything was great: the guide, who, after a good introduction, conveyed interesting facts at the stops in a humorous way. No run-of-the-mill tour, but individual and special. We had a lot of driving fun with the Scuddies, which we were able to drive safely after the briefing and a few meters of practice. Experience Cologne in a different way - absolutely recommendable.

We had a fantastic time on the E-Scooters, very easy to control and just my family of four on the tour (all adults). The guide Dieter was lovely and apologised for his lack of English which was actually very good as we understood him. It was a great way to see and learn about Cologne and we visited some of the places he introduced us to afterwards. We would definitely recommend this activity.

We did the tour in a group of 4 (2 hours tour) and it was really fun. We also come to the Cologne area, but we still had a lot of fun, it's just something new :) so we can only recommend it and would definitely book a tour again. Many thanks again to our tour guide, he was very nice.

cool tour on an easy to drive scooter. We had a lot of fun with a great guide! Unfortunately we had only booked the 1-hour tour, next time we would definitely book 2 hours

It was a great experience, high fun factor and lots of interesting information about Cologne from our guide Dieter. Gladly again.
