We learned so much about Munich and the history of beer on this tour. We were taken to several different places by our guide (who was awesome and funny) and he even took us to Hofbrauhaus at the end of the evening which isn't part of the original tour but he did it anyway. The Octoberfest museum was closed which I was very disappointed about and I felt they should have informed us beforehand in case we wanted to cancel or re-schedule.

Booking was simple & easy Made to feel so welcome by the tour guide Kevin & the group (USA, Singapore & English) Greeted with a beer which was great Kevin was very informative & kept us all In tow went to 3 bars & were supplied with beers & food made to feel so welcome by all the bars experience if this was simply great would recommend this to anyone thank you so much
