Fabulous tour! Don’t miss it!
Peter was a wealth of great information, and a delightful person. The tour took us to a number of interesting places, where he gave us a great historical overview as well as how things relate today. A thoroughly enjoyable day; don’t miss this one!

It was a nice short trip around and was able to see many places - which generally you can’t over over in walking tour.

A fun way to see the city
Nov 2019
This was a fun way to see the city and meet people if you are traveling solo. I was traveling for work and made a drive out to Cologne for a day trip. This was the perfect way to see the city.

Great way to see the city
i enjoyed this bike tour of the city of Cologne- I think it is the easiest, best way to get the ground-level view of a city and see the things you really can only see on foot, like a flea market at a community plaza, and footpaths in green park areas. Our Guide, Rosa, made the tour interesting by sharing some of the city’s history and geography, giving us a sense of what we were seeing. She kept the pace comfortable for everyone, including the family with two small children, and set the tone for the group- making it easy for us all to get to know each other a little. I highly recommend this tour.

Street Art colour explosion on a Sunday
Sep 2019 • Friends
Pleasantly surprised by the volume of excellent street art the tour exposed us to and its backstories. Our Tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and considerate. Definitely recommend for anyone visiting cologne.
The tour was a relaxed pace and not strenuous on the body at all.

We've done a few walking tours, this was our first bike tour and it was excellent. The pace was fine, with plenty of stops where our guide gave interesting information. It was very friendly, relaxed, and the cycling was mostly on dedicated cycle paths.

Aug 2019 • Friends
Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. He spoke with an accent so he was a little hard to understand. The ride was long but beautiful and it was a great way to explore the building. We had some difficult people in our group and our guide controlled them well even though they did put a damper on the excursion. It was a lot of fun and I would do it again,
