We really enjoyed this walk. Sascha led the group at a nice pace that gave us time to appreciate our surroundings. He told us lots of information in a friendly chatty way and involved us by asking questions and checking we understood things. It felt more like a walk and chat with a friend, than someone reading out information. Highly recommended to give an good overview of the Cathedral and city and tips for the rest of your stay in Cologne.

The whole ride was just perfect from start to finish. I would like to thank you for this great experience and can only recommend it to everyone.

I was in Cologne with my family. It was a nice trip. The service on the ship was friendly. The hour on the Rhine was very relaxing.

Well organised. Definitely recommended. Big thanks to our tour guide Peter.

The guide was great. The tour was very informative and interesting
