Sascha was incredible. From the first moment he made everything so easy! His communication on meeting point made it quick and easy for us to find him. He was very funny and did a great job between flipping from English and German to accompany the other guests. Sascha was very funny and kept us laughing while sharing his incredible knowledge of the history of the city. He went above and beyond and sent us links for restaurants and food to try. We had a great tour of the city. Highly recommend!

This summer, due to DB trains leaving late, we were running late for our 1 pm English walking tour but it was easy to communicate with tour guide Sascha who was understanding of our situation and met with us in the middle of the tour. He gave us the full 2 hours despite us being late. He was a polite, funny and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend.

An absolutely recommendable tour with beautiful details. For us Cologne residents it was also a highlight with information that we were not familiar with. The tour guide Sascha led us (5 people) with so much fun and joy through autumnal Cologne. There was a lot of laughter. Very entertaining, thank you again and again

The city guide Sascha is really passionate about his job. It was so fun and informative that you just lose track of time. On request you always got detailed information. Keep it up:)

Private walking tour on our own group, well versed English speaking guide, who also shared with us life as a local. Interesting 2 hrs with flexible itinerary suited to our pace.
