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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Steven again. It was a pleasure taking you around my home town. I sincerely hope, Cologne's "Koelsch beer" stands the comparison Munich's Oktoberfest.

Marc is a great tour guide with tons of knowledge on the city. He is very friendly and even specialized our tour for our specific interests. I learned a ton and wouldnt hesitate to book him again. A lot of the documentation house is is written in german and he is the perfect translator. He also knows all of the good reccomendations as far as cuisine. 100% reccomend marc. We had a great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for being so appreciative. Wishing you a wonderful continuation of your honeymoon. Cheers, Marc

My 15 year old son and I really enjoyed our tour with Marc. He has tremendous knowledge of both ancient and modern history, and even though the tour was short we learned a lot about the Roman origins of Cologne, its development over time, and of course about Cologne (and Germany in general) during the Nazi era. It was a pleasure to meet Marc as well. He has an interesting background and was able to give us great perspective without being preachy or judgmental - not an easy skill. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was such a pleasure taking you around the city and through the "darkest chapter" of German history. You were so genuinely interested and appreciative. May you two spend some more quality time together when traveling to Poland next month. All the best.

We had scheduled a tour with Marc to commence at 2 PM. He made the most of our limited time together and was informative and funny. Really appreciate his adjusting the schedule as best he could. Wish we would have had the full time with him...

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. It "takes two to tango" - and I appreciate also your flexibility. Looking back, we started a little bit before 02:00 PM and had the tour together til shortly after 03:30 PM. So we even spent more time together in the old town, than had we gone inside the cathedral, too. I hope you enjoyed your visit inside as well. You were a very fun group to be with, and I am wishing you many more interesting cruises together:--))

Marc gets a 5 star rating. Not only did he have a tremendous knowledge of history, but he was also very personable toward us. We felt we had made a friend in a very short period of time. A person like Marc is very positive for your company and we are extremely pleased to have made his acquaintance.

Marcus is a personable and knowledgeable tour guide of his hometown of Cologne. Best of all, he has personality and warmth. We family of 5 enjoyed our 2 hours tour with him of the city. Highly recommend him as top guide if you visit this lovely city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback. I had a great time showing a so genuinely interested family around my home town. Your children are very fortunate to have parents taking them on so many trips and showing them so many places around the world.

Immediately upon booking Marc was reaching out to understand our interests and what we were looking for in the tour. Marc was FABULOUS!! He provided a depth of information; including personal insights. Marc is well organized and just a delight to spend time with. I was keenly interested in the Deportation Center and Marc took the time to walk us through the building; providing highlights along the way. I would consider our time with Marc to be one of the top memories of our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was a pleasure taking you around the city and share our thoughts on this dark, dark chapter of human history.

Marc is a fantastic tour guide! After he confirmed the booking for our group, I asked him for advice on the best way to travel from Dusseldorf to Cologne as we were only going to Cologne for a day trip. Marc gave me very clear and helpful instructions and advice. The combination tour was perfect for us as a group because we all had different interests and Marc was very knowledgeable, friendly, he made the tour very enjoyable and we enjoyed his company.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Any time again. You made it so easy for me. Thank you so much. What a humurous, funny and genuinely interested group of people you were. Well, what else to expect from a group of experienced, committed (ex-)firefighters from Ireland? Safe travels!

Marcus is a personable and knowledgeable tour guide of his hometown of Cologne. Best of all, he has personality and warmth. We started the tour as strangers but ended as friends! He was flexible with his tour agenda and customized the tour to our interests (and our stamina). Cologne is a fascinating city, especially its Dom, and with a private guide like Marcus, we learned that we wanted to come back, soon. Thanks Marcus!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you two were able to enjoy the city and its Xmas markets at its best. Thanks for being such vivacious and profoundly interested visitors. I am looking forward to another expedition and exchange of ideas with you.

Our 2 hour walking tour of Cologne with Marc was excellent! Not only is Marc knowledgeable about the city, he is personable and has an engaging sense of humor! I wish we could have had all day with this fellow! My son is 16 and feels the same way. Thank you Marc for a wonderful time and for being a part of our European adventure! See you next time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You were a remarkable mother-son team, and showing you around was nothing but shear pleasure. I hope you had a wonderful time in Berlin and Scandinavia, too.

Marc did a wonderful job with our group. All of us appreciated his warmth and humor, as well as his knowledge and information. I had booked a tour to the Marienbad neighborhood of Cologne to see the Stolpersteins for my grandparents as well as their homes. Marc's thoughtfulness and sensitivity, as well as the considerable effort he went to to inform himself of the family history was incredible. The small but incredibly thoughtful effort of bringing brass polish to clean the Stolpersteins was so meaningful

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy to hear that you could bring a view thoughts and concerns to rest.

Great tour. Marc is extremely knowledgeable as well as being very entertaining. We hope we will have the opportunity to visit Cologne again and will definitely book another tour with Marc. We strongly recommend that anyone visiting Cologne book a tour with Marc. You will not regret it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a small world it is. You knowing my distant relatives' business 10.000 mi away in Hilo/Hawaii. And the incredible lightness and sense of humour with which you explore new places and sites, and react to certain "detours" along the way, make you a tour guide's dream to work for. Thank you so much for your positive spirits!
