Nicolas was a fun guy who also made sure that he talks to everyone during the tour and that everybody feels included. That's why the group vibe was very good and you could easily connect with the other participants. Can only recommend!

Nico was a fantastic guide. I’m so excited that he showed us things around the city that you never would notice on your own. It was such a fun way of spending the afternoon. He was very conversational and made a point of getting to know all of us. As a group we had such a good time learning about each other while experiencing the amazing city of Cologne.
