Colonia Aktiv Private Tours

Guided bike tours are a very special way to get to know a city. On the bike to actively experience Cologne and to experience its attractions something to the history and current developments is a special experience.

As we have a much wider radius of action (about 15 km) on our bike tours than on foot guided tours, a much wider range of city districts and sights can be visited also outside the overrun tourist centers. Good for body, mind and environment, you cycle over traffic-calmed ways that have been worked out by us for you. So there is plenty of time to enjoy and make the city feel like a city. However, it is often the case, especially in the summer months and on the weekends, with most providers, not with small, clear group sizes.

Many vendors are not adequately accommodated and the guests are less likely to cycle in groups of up to 25 guests. The disadvantages are obvious. Little personal contact with the guide, increased accident risk and the guests get less of the content.

Colonia Aktiv recognized this at an early stage and is the only provider to offer exclusive private tours. The luxurious advantage for you is that our competent guide is exclusively dedicated to you and your loved one in a group of maximum 4 riders. The private tour is a lasting experience especially for one to two couples and families.

It goes without saying that a moderate surcharge is necessary to offer this service. But it is worth it – already many happy Cologne visitors have confirmed this.

Our guide can more individually address you and your interests and preferences as guests. A more unchanging interaction between you and our guide is created – which increases the quality of your city tour and ultimately benefits both sides.

Colonia Aktiv offers each of our bike tours as a private version for 149 € (3 hours) or 179 € (4 hours).

I stayed two days in Köln with my sons (9 and 12 years). We took a private bike tour with Peter. He is the owner of the business. He was very kind with us and he knows a lot of history and facts of the city and of Germany. He recommended us a lot of other places to visit. Excellent tour. It’s a different way of knowing a city and the best way. Kids loved it. It’s a must!

“Needed something to do while in Cologne with 3 teenagers who love their phones! This was a great trip and we were able to see all the highlights of cologne, explained very well by Peter. This company accommodated our group of six on a days notice and Peter, the owner did a great job of keeping our kids attention the entire time. Pokemon go is huge right now so the kids were happy to pick up a few German pokemons! Overall, a great value and perfect trip on our last day in Cologne. Thank you Peter for such a great tour! You did an excellent job of keeping the kids pedaling for 15Kilometers!
