What people are saying about Cologne

After a short, somewhat disorganized "distribution" of the different group participants, it just went great. Our guide had a lot of knowledge to impart and we had to wait a maximum of 2 minutes in front of the individual breweries. The Kölsch were of course all very tasty Keep up the good work

Stefan was a really good and informative guide. He took us on a nice 2 hour tour through Köln. Would recommend this tour to others. We were three friends on a holiday and ended the tour with nice Kölsch beer at the brauhaus.

Our tour guide Max was so knowledgeable and he made the tour alot of fun! This is a great tour to do when in Cologne because it helps to understand the whole culture around the beer!

The tour is highly recommended. We run individually and wittily.

Learned a lot about kolsch beer and Carolin was a great guide!
