“We did the most popular bike tour around Cologne which took about 3.5hrs with Peter. The tour itself is a great way to get around and see all the sights of Cologne. Peter was a great guide, he was interesting, knowledgeable and most importantly kept it fun which can be easily lost on a city tour. We highly recommend doing this bike tour, thanks Peter!

“It was a cold and drizzly day in early March, but I was having so much fun and learning so much I hardly noticed! I\’m a big fan of city bicycle tours in general, but Cologne really stands out as a bike friendly city and Colonia Aktiv does a terrific job. Peter was a terrific and flexible guide and the bikes were top-notch. My highest recommendation!”
