A great tour giving you an insight to German beer and drinking culture, we visited places we would never have gone to without the tour, very informative and had a great time, a definite must !
Fantastic Beer Tour!
, Jul 2021
We had the most amazing time touring Cologne and tasting various Kölsch with Michael. He was engaging, knowledgeable, and flexible. We were able to go with the flow and take a little longer at some stops. Hands down one of the best, if not the best, beer tours we’ve ever taken. Highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to learn to drink like a local!

The tour with Zoe was awesome! She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and happy to cater the tour to our interests and questions, sharing facts and history about beer and Cologne in general. It was great to have a local show us around and not feel quite so lost for a few hours!

Went on the English-speaking tour. It was great! The guide was very knowledgeable with facts and stories on the city, it's history, the culture and, of course, the bier! A fun way to spend the evening.

We went to four brewhouses and basically had the same beer at each place. The buildings were unique and interesting, but that’s about it. Guide was ok. Not worth the cost.

Hi Jennette, Thank you for your feedback! We are really sorry that you did not entirely enjoy the tour! Usually our guides will tell you a lot of facts and stories about the beer and also the city. The beer you had is the typical local style of beer, which is produced by different breweries. As they are all the same style, of course they are quite similar. Still most of our guests taste the fine difference. We are always striving to get better and we highly appreciate your feedback! We would be very thankful, if you could give us further feedback by email! Cheers, Michael

Informationen die weitergegeben wurden waren top. Man hat sich schnell als Gruppe gefühlt. Ein kühles Kölsch bei super ☀️☀️
Absolut empfehlenswerte Brauhaustour
, Sep 2021
Die Tour war klasse, der Tourguide Michael war sehr sympathisch! Er hat uns viele Geschichten über die Kölner Brauhauskultur, aber auch über die Stadt selbst erzählt. Jeder, der gemütlich bei ein paar Kölsch etwas über die Stadt, über das Kölsche Bier und über alte Brautradtition erfahren will, ist hier absolut richtig. Sehr empfehlenswert :)
