- "lasting a good hour" - for a brief overview / only museum
Travel schedules are as numerous as there are travelers.
Maybe you will have a walking tour (included) as part of your travel itinerary, but it does not include any of the fabulous museums? You are curious about them, but the timing of the public tours offered does not match your travel plans?
Trade fair visitors, accompanying spouse, changing trains?
You would like to add another aspect to one of the existing tours? Just add an "One-Hour-Orientation" to it.

I would very much reccomend the one hour orientation tour with Marc. You can tell that history is his passion. The walk around cologne is very interesting and we learned a ton of new facts. Marc knows all the good places to eat or grab a beer, not to mention facts around every corner. Cologne is a city filled with history and marc knows it flawlessly. I wouldnt hesitate to book another tour with marc. Worth every penny.
