Sights and details that you will not find in a booklet. Well worth it.

Unfortunately, the tour didn't go as expected. Instead of being shown highlights, it was mostly about the story. And it started with the ancient Romans. We were less interested in how the dead were buried earlier and what was written on the gravestones, but rather we wanted to see something of Cologne / old town. Since this did not happen after an hour, we canceled the tour and walked independently with the help of a city map and information from the service from a locality to the Rhine, the chocolate museum, etc. Since we already took part in a city tour in Cologne 3 years ago, we know that it can be better. With fun and sayings and a lot of Cologne humor. When our grandson (12 years old) asked how much longer this would go on, the tour came to an end for us. The tour should inspire and carry you away and not be boring!

The explanations in the Roman-Germanic part of the museum were too long for me. Would have liked to know more about the old town and the old town alleys.
