Could not recommend this tour more! The guide was absolutely amazing. He knew so much about Cologne and conveyed a lot of information in an easily understandable way. He was also so welcoming and friendly. The bike ride itself includes a bunch of stops across the city. Definitely book this tour, if you want to see a lot in just a few hours!

Our guide, Ulrikke, was very nice and knowledgeable, and explained everything about the buildings we saw on our way, and also told us stories about the history of Cologne. It was a very nice experience!
