Walking tour to the cathedral is short, and we didn't get to go into the cathedral because of a mass. The beer culture dinner tour in the evening was great fun, but the restaurant was really hot !

Day three was Cologne. We took the standard Tour of the city, with some extra time. I have to say I was a bit disappointed with Cologne. The cathedral is beautiful, but we only had 15 minutes inside, and the guides were not allowed in with us. That was not enough time. The rest of the tour was primarily talking about current events, and the fact that most of cologne has been rebuilt, or replaced with modern features. I wish we could have had a guided tour of the cathedral, and less time wandering. We had some free time, and took a later bus back to the boat. That worked out ok for us. Read Less

My only complaint was that the tour guide had us dally near the ship for about an hour and fifteen minutes... his narrative was interesting but I did not appreciate the abbreviation of our excursion.
