We really enjoyed this tour right after reaching Koeln. Our host Lars was very nice and managed the whole tour in English to allow everyone to benefit from his knowledge and stories. It was interesting, about rugby in time and very useful to know the proper way to order a beer in a brewery. I strongly recommend to register !!

tutto perfetto, ben organizzati e puntualissimi. Il giro è interessante e ovviamente la birra è buonissima e i birrifici visitati sono davvero tipici. Il giro è durato mezz'ora in più di quanto previsto. Guide entrambe molto preparate e hanno fatto trasparire l'amore per la loro città. Molto simpatiche. Tour in tedesco quindi è necessrio conoscere abbastanza bene la lingua ma loro sono stati molto cordiali anche con chi ha avuto delle difficoltà rispiegando ciò che non era stato capito.

Unsere Tour hat der liebe Peter mit uns gemacht. Da wir unter der Woche unterwegs waren, war unsere Gruppe (5 Personen) alleine mit ihm unterwegs und wir haben auch in jedem Brauhaus ein Plätzchen bekommen um das tolle Kölsch zu probieren. Er wusste immer was zu erzählen, natürlich über die Brauhäuser, aber auch historisches, da man auf der Tour an einigen alten Brunnen etc. vorbeikommt. Sogar eine Kölsche Gesangseinlage haben wir bekommen :) Grüße an dich lieber Peter von der Schwäbischen Gruppe. Nur zu empfehlen!
