Tour is super basic, if you open google maps you can do it by yourself. The guide was asking us what to do or where we wanted to go, which is in my opinion something you can expect from a guide. The attitude was awesome and places were good but explanations not quite good and the level of the guides voice was very low.

It ran smoothly from start to finish. it was a really good experience. We had a laugh and learnt a lot in the process. The group size was just right and the person giving us the tour was friendly and knowledgeable. Even for people who know a bit about Cologne and the history it is worth experiencing.
