Registered on October 25, 2017

Hey there! My name is André and I'm part of the Freewalk Cologne family. After traveling for a while, I ended up in the city of Cologne and it fascinated me and can't imagine living anywhere else, especially after starting working with Freewalk Cologne. The company started some years ago with a bunch of people in love with the city and their main goal was to show around the city and make the visitors experience a fun time in Cologne. And nowadays, we're still here, ready to welcome you to Cologne and show you the hidden corners of the city. If you'd like to learn about Cologne in a fun way, don't hesitate and join us! We love our city and we wanna share this love with you!

Muy bien tour. André muy simpático y agradable, nos daba datos curioso de la ciudad así como de edificios emblemáticos con historias divertidas. No sólo descubres y visitas la ciudad, sino además de contarte la historia de Colonia, conoces sus detalles más anecdóticos. Como único comentario a mejorar , hablaba demasiado rápido
