We loved this tour - it was the right balance between seeing and cycling, Anthony was a great guide, the city has a lovely buzz about it. We even stopped for a beer by the Rhine which was a nice touch. The tour lasted three hours in total.

We had an excellent e-bike tour with Peter today. We covered 30km, saw a rose garden, learned about St.Agnes, history of Köln and ate fries!

We did the most popular bike tour around Cologne which took about 3.5hrs with Peter. The tour itself is a great way to get around and see all the sights of Cologne. Peter was a great guide, he was interesting, knowledgeable and most importantly kept it fun which can be easily lost on a city tour. We highly recommend doing... More

I stayed two days in Köln with my sons (9 and 12 years). We took a private bike tour with Peter. He is the owner of the business. He was very kind with us and he knows a lot of history and facts of the city and of Germany. He recommended us a lot of other places to visit. Excellent... More

We did the bike tour on Saturday which was excellent. Despite booking a German language tour by accident, the instructor was kind enough to accommodate us with an English speaking tour instead. We covered some beautiful locations including the park, the bridge and the cathedral and learnt a lot about how the city was built up over the past 400... More

A great way to see a large part of the city and learn about its history. The bikes are in top shape and the guide was knowledgeable about whatever we asked. His stories about the different spots and their history added an extra dimension to the sightseeing as well. If you'd like a relatively cheap and fun way to see... More
