“Cole grew up in a small town in rural Ohio and has spent his entire life since trying to get as far away from there as possible. His multiple applications to NASA having been turned down on the grounds of “lacking any useful skills whatsoever” and “oh my God, how did he get in here again”, Cole decided to turn to the only job he was actually qualified for: excitedly yelling at strangers in exchange for money. He fell off of part of a volcano one time, but it’s alright, he survived.”

The Show

Can-You-Handle-It-Tours-Guide-7“The Legend”

Narella Cologne“Smiles for miles”

Outgoing and funny, Narella guided in different places around Europe, until the Kölner Dom and the Kölsch beer conquered her heart forever. After years of working as a tour guide, she knows about the importance of a warm smile and a good story to tell.
