Sascha was incredible. From the first moment he made everything so easy! His communication on meeting point made it quick and easy for us to find him. He was very funny and did a great job between flipping from English and German to accompany the other guests. Sascha was very funny and kept us laughing while sharing his incredible knowledge of the history of the city. He went above and beyond and sent us links for restaurants and food to try. We had a great tour of the city. Highly recommend!

quite magical and probably contemporary presentation of van gogh's works as animated large-scale projections. wonderful lyrics and music. you should look for a nice seat and then enjoy 'the show' in peace! I would have liked to have had more floor projections here in cologne, so that I could really immerse myself in them, in other halls there seems to have been a different structure.

Private walking tour on our own group, well versed English speaking guide, who also shared with us life as a local. Interesting 2 hrs with flexible itinerary suited to our pace.

Good experience to learn about chocolate making. Not a bad choice to spend an hour here. Taste the chocolate straight out of production lane was yummm!

Sehr interessante und unterhaltsame Tour mit Petra, vielen Dank, top!!
