We were in Dusseldorf at the beginning of May 2022 on a stag party and spent 2 hours on the tour our guide was very knowledgeable of the city and the beers and after the tour for the last few days of our break we ditched the larger and drank the local Altbier instead, both the tour and the Altbier are highly recommended

Die Tour hat mir sehr gut gefallen, sie war sehr informativ, aber nicht trocken, sondern authentisch. Der Tourguide sorgte dafür, dass sich niemand verirrte, wartete bis alle den nächsten Ort erreichten und ihn hören konnten

Very good experience to be able to know the different beers here! The guide was a genius who took the time to translate for me into English since the tour was in German!

We really enjoyed the tour. Alina gave us a lot of interesting information. It was an entertaining and nice action!

It was very interesting and lots of delicious beer! Thanks
