1. Bonn: 1.5-Hour River Cruise on the Rhine

Marvel at some of Bonn’s most important — and beautiful – sights on the 1.5-hour cruise down the mighty Rhine River. Gaze upon the former West German capital’s governmental district, complete with the Hammerschmidt Villa, the former residence of the president of the Federal Republic of Germany.  Continue cruising down the Rhine and you’ll reach Königswinter, an idyllic wine village at the food of the mighty Drachenfels. From there, you’ll have a perfect view of the Drachenburg Castle — a 19th-century palace so directly pulled from a fairytale that it’s hard to believe that it’s real. On the way back, sample some German snacks and refreshments from the concession stand as you sail down the Rhine and return to the pier from which you departed.

We were very skeptical at first, but Manni delivered an 11/10. The food was varied, we learned a lot about the history of Cologne and the selected restaurants were also great. All in all a really great tour and we would do it again any time.

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!

So what depends on the guide! Our guide Jana was relaxed, funny and could tell funny! It was fun!

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