Our guide was amazing! Just amazing, very knowledgeable. The tour exceeded my expectations. Initially I opted for a small group tour with another operator, but it did not work out. So I ended up on this tour. Initially I didn’t want to take this tour as the description said “1 hour beer museum” (l like art museums, just not very interested in beer museums:). But “the beer museum” actually meant beer tasting and a little bit of a museum. At the end of the day I was looking for a beer tasting tour in Bavaria, so this worked out perfectly for me. The group consisted of 9 lovely individuals from all over the world, very friendly. It was very fun tasting beers, having dinner and learning about history of Bavaria. The guide was ready to answer any questions of interest, beer related or not. Highly recommend this tour!
