Unfortunately, I don't understand English and the tour guide had to conduct the tour bilingually. I had booked a German speaking tour. Unfortunately, the English spoken portion was higher. But my son stepped in every now and then and translated.

There is so much things to travel around and with bicycle this is really amazing. Best spending I have ever done. The guide was wonderful. But attention if you have a problem like heart diseases or something be careful.

Very cool bike tour to different points in Cologne. The tour guide seemed very competent and really very friendly. Bikes were in great shape. Always a pleasure and a good alternative to normal tours on foot or by bus.

Peter is a super nice and knowledgeable guide who carefully guided us through beautiful Cologne with a lot of German humor and gave us local insights that you would not otherwise hear or see.

Really content-rich experience, with skilled eloquent English guide
