Bilingual English-German tour, we were the only two non-German speakers in the group, but that did not contribute to our exclusion. Each passage being scrupulously translated in turn. The visit, in addition to being very interesting and rich in discoveries about the culture of Düsseldorf concerning its famous Altbier, was punctuated by tastings of very cold beers in a good-natured and typical atmosphere at each brewery-stop. The quality-price ratio as such is very interesting, because in addition to discovering the local beers, we discover their history and the brewing techniques, it is a must do if you go to Düsseldorf.

What a fun tour!! Thanks for all your fun stories and excellent recommendations for dinner. It was amazing!!!
