Thorsten understood precisely what we were looking for in a cologne City tour. His knowledge of the history of the city and its landmarks was interesting and entertaining. He also delivered on our request to visit a few of the traditional Kolsch Brauhauser in the Aldstadt and shared the history and culture of Cologne's beer. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide in Cologne or any of the surrounding cities. Tom Z

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tom. It was big fun guiding you and your friends in Cologne. My apologies for the Sauerbraten that was obviously not everybody's taste but that is what makes travelling that attractive - just jump into an unknown world and start discovering. So always stay curious! Looking forward to meeting you when you'll be back for your river cruise. So long & all the best from Rhine Valley. Thorsten

Tour: #582174, Adenauer Home & Drachenfels excursion, Cologne, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany    view tour
Date: Aug 13/19

Thorsten deserves higher than 5 stars, more like 50. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and was able to adjust the tour to accommodate things we really wanted to see. This was the best tour I have ever been on and I have been on many. This was my first ToursByLocals, but it won't be my last. I can't recommend Thorsten more highly. Truly, he is a special person and a great guide. If you are going to be in western Germany, and he's available, use Thorsten.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Daniel for this amazing comment. It was a pleasure having you here in Cologne. Good to hear that you liked the places we visited. Enjoy the rest of your holidays and have a safe way back home.

Tour: #560643, Bonn Capital & City individual, Köln, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany    view tour
Date: Mar 21/19

I am writing this the morning after my Bonn tour. If you want to see and learn about the history, culture and people of Bonn , this is the tour for you. Thorsten gave me options along the way regarding what to do next, which tailored the tour to my desire. The visit to the History Museum and the Beethoven Museum ( the outside/gift shop as the museum was in renovation) were very important to me. Lunch atop the Marriott with views of the city was spectacular A great day was had Thank you Thorsten

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: There is something telling me you'll be back in Bonn for next years' Beethoven 250th anniversary celebrations... :-) If, it would be a pleasure to meet you again. Thanks for all! TK

Tour: Ahr Valley Red Wine Hiking individual, Bonn, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany
Date: Mar 20/19

Thorsten created a flexible tour for me. I wanted a lot of hiking thru the vineyards of the valley and I definitely got that. Along the way I received lessons in history, politics, culture and of course wine. I had a great tour of a winery and stopped at the magnificent monastery ruins and experienced a "flaming pie" for lunch. Thorsten stopped as many times as I wanted for breaks and snacks. It was a wonderful time. Very much enjoyed it

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A great day with a great guest! Was a pleasure being your tour guide. Thanks, Ed for visiting my home region. TK
