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.

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.
