Everything was good to very good! The Cologne impact and touch can be emphasized a little more. The audience doesn't expect anything else! The "little misunderstanding" of foreigners about the origin and tradition of the carnival is offered an ideal opportunity to correct it here. For example opposite the Oktoberfest on the Munich island: called "Theresienwiese".

We had booked a city tour with Markus Zens on Saturday because we, as natives of Cologne, wanted to bring our city a little closer to our 13-year-old grandson, who is also from Cologne. It was very entertaining and informative hours. As true Cologne residents, we have learned a great deal about our city. Many thanks to Markus Zens. Have already planned a repeat with all children and grandchildren
