Short visit but knowledgeable guide. Many of the historic buildings were destroyed in the war, thus the cathedral itself became the highlight of the tour.

Took an excellent walking tour of old Cologne. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining. We also took a roof top tour of the cathedral that was incredible. Great tour if you are not afraid of heights.

Cologne was really fun. Cathedral is certainly interesting, but we enjoyed getting off on our own and walking around, and eventually back to the ship.

Our guide thought we had more time than we did, therefore our tour was extended by roughly two hours into the Jewish and Protestant areas near the Cathedral. We even saw preliminary excavation of Roman ruins. While the area was crowded by tourists, we had no trouble making our way wherever our guide led us. The Cathedral is beyond imagination and the history of the area is fascinating. Read Less

We had hardly any time in Cologne which was a big disappointment. This part of the itinerary needs reviewing. However, our guide was very informed and wonderfully funny. A fine finale to the trip. After a very brief walk round the city, we visited the magnificent cathedral. There were far to many tourists in it so I would advise finding out when it opens first thing in the morning and going then. Read Less
