An absolute must when you are in Cologne. Michael was very knowledgable and made the tour fun and interesting. Even for a Cologne native there where interesting facts and anecdotes. Highly recommended.

Lovely tour guided by Betty. Really nice guide! Could perfectly feel what we needed! Also very good service from Koelsch Guys since some of our friends had to cancel last minute due to illness! We were very pleased overall! Would definitely come back again!
