We were very skeptical at first, but Manni delivered an 11/10. The food was varied, we learned a lot about the history of Cologne and the selected restaurants were also great. All in all a really great tour and we would do it again any time.

Our guide Susanne took us to small shops around Chlodwigplatz and told us many funny stories about the surrounding squares and buildings. All in all a great afternoon and highly recommended!

Harry is a great guide, he has the typical Cologne style and was able to convey the brewery facts very well. We had a fun afternoon with delicious Kolsch, I recommend!

It was a super tour where you learn a lot about the beer tradition in Cologne. We all had a lot of fun with our guide.

It was very informative and we had a lot of fun. Susanne did a really great job.
