    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!

    Interesting and entertaining explanations of the sights and anecdotes from Cologne's history made the city tour with Angelika worthwhile.
