We had a great afternoon together with our guide. We were a smaller personal group of 3 people. We learned a lot about beer and Munich, meandered through the streets and discovered hidden details. As a stopover we had a beer tasting which was very empty and tasty. Last but not least, we had a good and hearty dinner with our guide, where there was still some time for a few personal conversations. A PERFECT gift for my partner. Thanks

I was the only person on the tour and when I asked Paul why he did not cancel, he said it wouldn't be professional. A great guy who truly loves his city and showed me how to appreciate the taste of Bier rather than just drink it for the sake of it. Every bar/place we went into, he was greeted like a best friend.

Our guide Steve from Ireland was a hit with our English speaking group. The other participants from the USA, Australia etc. were also very pleasant. Open, friendly...I highly recommend this tour!

Our guide Thomas was awesome!! Very animated and visibly excited about the topic! We had an amazingly diverse, outgoing, and fun group also! Made some new Friends that night!! Highly recommend!

A bit hard to find, which made us late, but the staff were brilliant and got us sorted.
