Our cruise guide was extremely knowledgeable. He was a history teacher at the local high school and he really knew the history of Cologne and shared every inch of it with us. He knew the state capital of every single state in the US.

No time to see anything. We were only allowed in the entrance of the Cathedral. It was more of a very brisk walk-through the streets.

Cologne is a beautiful city with lots of history. Unfortunately, the tour guide was not very good - she is a teacher and treated our group as children with step-by-step instructions and not as mature adults who only wanted culturally and historically important details. We did not go inside the cathedral because Sunday services were in session, We tried to go back later in the day but there was a political rally (the Kurds were protesting something) that took over the square with lots of police presence such that we avoided the area.
