Cologne is a living museum of European history through the ages. From its early days as a Roman settlement to the Medieval Ages, right through to 20th century wars and contemporary times, Cologne's architecture and public spaces are visual reminders of its storied past.

Take a private Cologne tour and explore the city's rich history with a friendly and knowledgeable local guide.

The heart of Cologne rises high above the city in the form of the twin spires of the Kölner Dom. This magnificent gothic cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the most visited attraction in all of Germany; your guide will ensure the time you spend here is entertaining and enriching. Cologne's city centre is compact and walking alongside your guide is an excellent way to explore all its nooks and crannies. Make sure to stop at a pub to sample some of the region's famous Kölsch beer, relax and get a glimpse of daily life in Cologne.

Enjoy getting to know the city on your private Cologne tour.

  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
