Expected a large group - wife and I the only persons immediately after Christmas. Great driver with knowledge of the German landscape and culture. His background made him a great conversationalist for the long car ride. Unaware that he would put us on a bus in Cologne for a city tour but it turned out fine.

Bus trip in Cologne was boring but the cathedral was incredible. The stop in Limburg was also fantastic! Richard the guide was fun and helpful.

This Cathedral has relics of the 3 Wise Men behind the main altar so it can be overlooked. The reliquary is fashioned as a golden house-like container. The Cathedral was a key structure for airplanes to maintain their orientation during WW II. Heavy military and police guard the Cathedral since the January 2016 terrorist activity. The visitation inside the Cathedral is randomly changed to prevent possible terrorist activity. I felt safe on my visit considering the changing belief systems in the world.

A great day trip to this lovely city with its enormous Cathedral. We had time enough for personal sightseeing, and visiting the Cathedral at our leisure. The stop in Limburg on the way back to Frankfurt was a pleasant break, and a chance to see an untouched medieval town.

I was supposed to travel to Cologne by bus, but since there were no other bookings that day, I was provided a town car and driver. I would have preferred to been notified prior to the day of the trip, however having the personal attention of the driver was excellent for my guest and I.

Almost excellent. Just the city tour bit in the hop on hop off bus was disappointing. Other wise very good and pretty informative.

This was a good tour and the group was very small. The tour guide was able to take care of individual customers in a good manner.

Town has lots to see and is worth the 2hr drive. Unfortunstely our driver was new and his first time taking a group to Cologne. He was very nice but not prepared/trained enough to lead an organized/informative trip.

Fabulous cathedral and interesting city. We travelled in a van as a small group late May on a beautiful day. The open top bus is a 1.5 hour trip which all of the group found too long, you go out of the main tourist area and we felt it would have been better spent in the old town area. Guide was extremely chatty and hadn't done this tour in many years so didn't know where toilets were etc. Limburg was a great surprise, a quaint town lovely to walk through and we were lucky there was an ordination of priests occurring at the cathedral so we witnessed a great ceremony. Skip the sandwich and drink box and buy yummy local food. Great day overall, different for us going high speed on the autobahns.

Peter was a great tour guide. Cologne was a much bigger city than I had expected but the city bus tour was a great way to get the big picture of the city. We loved it!!!

A friendly guide, an impressive cathedral, dramatic new architecture in a city that was almost destroyed during the war, what is there
not to like.

. Places visited and tour guide were good.
. We found that it is cheaper to book from the tour company than through Viator.
. Our trip to Cologne should be on 31 May. But, the Tour company changed it to 30th May. He switched it with Black Forest and Strasbourg and it was raining throughout the trip.
. Boss of Tour company not friendly

I was disappointed with this tour. I wanted to visit Cologne primarily because of its famous cathedral. I was initially planning to go on my own by train but I saw this tour on Viator which INCLUDED a GUIDED tour of the interior of the church. When we got to Cologne, we did the hop on/hop off bus tour of the city then we were given some free time to tour the church on our own. I was expecting a guided tour and was not prepared to tour the church on my own. I did not know where to go to see the relics of the 3 Kings and did not read up on the church. I felt that I missed out on a lot because of this. The tour company should realize that many will be joining this tour primarily to see the cathedral and they should be clear if an interior tour is included or not. For the price that I paid, I felt I was cheated.

Cologne seems to be a very interesting city with a marvelous cathedral. However I had a guide not that good, apparently inexperienced, that converted tour in a complicated experience. He did not provide any information about city, did not include restroom break on the journey, prioritized bus citysighseing instead of going directly to cathedral could not see it entirely, was closing, could not find easily hotel booked for part of tour guests, completely forgot to give our lunch sandwiches remembered at 16:30, after visiting cathedral asked what we would like to see in Cologne instead of giving us a tour around city I was expecting guide to tell me what to see, but we didn't see much. Finally on way back he got stuck and blocked on the road due to a car crash and because of this we could not visit Limburg as scheduled and tour ended one hour delayed OK, not his fault but ruined tour.

It did not take place as I was the only one who booked for it so I was transferred to the Baden Baden and Strassbourg day trip which turned out to have been super - and the guide Peter was great.
