Victor was our driver and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with him. He picked us up on time and greeted us with a friendly smile. We quickly chatted about what we wanted to see and where we wanted to be dropped off and off we went. Victor gladly showed us the important city spots and provided a lot of background information throughout the trip. Both my wife and I were very pleased with this service. I am glad we decided to take this tour. It was definitely worth it. Hasta la próxima Víctor! José de Texas.

Interesting tour through the not so we’ll known neighborhoods, something different compared to the standard sightseeing tours. I live in Cologne but didn’t know most of the places. Christian the guide was very motivated and knew a lot about the street art scene.

There is so much things to travel around and with bicycle this is really amazing. Best spending I have ever done. The guide was wonderful. But attention if you have a problem like heart diseases or something be careful.

Great tour because you don't just walk around the cathedral like you would during a visit, but also get to know the other side of the Rhine. Tobi is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain.

Victor was an excellent rour guide. He was funny and friendly. Very informative and enjoyable.
