Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 91 reviews

Good connections, easy to get on and off and especially useful in Cologne is the fact that the center is compact so you can also skip stops and walk to the next one yourself.

Bus good, driver very friendly, on time. It started to rain and the windows fogged up. Windshield wipers in the upper window would have been very helpful.

Shows you the true beauty of Köln, the city center is not the only beautiful part of the city.

Very interesting, well organized and professionally conducted. Informative. Gladly again.

Drivers were helpful and fun. For good to all major tourist sites.
