We did the tour with Matthias. Very entertaining, nice and competent. was fun 25 people took part in the tour. The last stop on the tour was in front of the Schlenkerla. There were a lot of funny people on the street and it was so loud that you could hardly hear Matthias.

You shouldn't expect a tour of the STardt, since it's really more about the beer and you can't walk much in 60 minutes. Our guide was super friendly. The beer tasting place was great - we were lucky enough to be able to stay afterwards and had a delicious dinner.

We liked it very much!!

The tourist guide was very nice and did her "thing" great. Since we were traveling in the group only as a family (no other visitors) we could make the tour very individual and she has responded to our requests and questions. Not the typical city tour. Very relaxed and not boring !! Was very interesting. The beer tasting was delicious and she could tell us a lot about the history and beer production. We were able to implement the tips she gave us for the afternoon session. Thank you Mrs. Maaß !! again and again.....
