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.

So much more than a food tour. The history and culture of Koln presented in the tour made the experience so much more enjoyable. Our guide accommodated our lack of German language skills. That was much appreciated.

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!

It was an entertaining walk through Kaiserswerth. If you got stuck with a puzzle, you could request help and a viewpoint from the next station in the game. Very well done.

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