Amazing Tour in Beautiful Cologne (🏳️‍🌈 friendly)

Sascha was an AMAZING tour guide of this city! He walked us around to all the amazing sights and pointed out super cool things that are less noticed which we really enjoyed! He had tons of expert knowledge about each spot and even spots we asked about that weren't on the tour! He was also able to give us recommendations for other things such as food and museums. LGBTQ+ friendly.🏳️‍🌈 We highly recommend this tour to ANYONE visiting this beautiful city!

It ended up being a private tour that day with the rain & world health scare situation but I had the best tour!! Sascha was so informative & friendly. I learned and saw so much!

Thank you very much for your review! Due to the weather conditions and the critical Corona virus news worldwide, we had rebooked other participants' places for the afternoon and evening that day, but were ready to fulfill your wish to complete the morning tour despite the weather. We are happy to fulfill the wishes of our customers, even if it is something special. The situation about Corona virus was worldwide serious that time so we took every action to be careful but unfortunately things changed rapidly every moment so we faced the cancelling of lots of our tours...

Cologne Cathedral and City Tour

Great tour with Sascha on 2/11/20. He sent me a text with clear directions and photos of our meeting place so finding him was easy. Very interesting trip—Sascha was a wealth of knowledge on history and culture of Cologne. Nice tour of the cathedral and many other sights. I have a much deeper appreciation of Cologne and its people, and plenty of pictures! Sascha was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor. I would definitely recommend this trip.

Sascha our tour guide is an entertaining knowledgeable well spoken and articulate local German. We started our very generous 2 hour tour at the Cathedral. We spent half an hour wandering about the cathedral and train station area talking about the history of and construction of it. During this time he pointed out some of the subtleties of the cathedral that would not be noticed by the uninformed. We next proceeded around the cathedral where he pointed out some of the World War II history and how it affected the Cologne and the train station and cathedral area. As we proceeded through the museum district he pointed out some of the artifacts and things that one might see in these museums if one was interested in returning after the tour.Down to the river area he pointed out the history of the development of the city of cologne as well as some of the design and civil engineering of the evolution of the city which I found very interesting.We then proceeded through the early commercial old town area of the city past some of the very old original shops and government buildings. We then concluded back at the Cathedral. I was in Cologne for only one day and had a number of things that I wanted to see. Sasha walked me by virtually everythingThat was on my list. The only thing that we did not see that I wanted to see on my own was the Gestapo museum. That was about a 10 minute walk from the Cathedral. Obviously I could have spent much much more time in Cologne. It is a beautiful town. But with what Sasha showed me, I pretty much covered Cologne in a day And don’t feel that I need to go back to see anything that I missed. I will be going back to cologne with my wife and daughter in the next couple of months and plan to spend a little more time but Sasha gave me the groundwork for any further exploration That we will be doing.

This was a very interesting - must see - two hours tour by foot in the old city of Cologne. We walked on the ancient paths of the city and enjoyed to listen to our tireless, pleasant and highly communicating guide Sascha. who explained to us in detail the history of Cologne and filled us with knowledge about the oldest city of Europe. Thank you so much!
