We had enjoyed this tour. Liam is very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed full size beers at two places and we went to Hofbrauhaus at the end of the tour to learn a little about its history but beer isn’t included there. One strong recommendation to improve the tour is to include food. You can order food on your own but if you’re the only one it’s awkward. We did a tour like this in Brussels and every 4 people got a basket of bread and a small charcuterie board and one other thing. Even if it costs a little more it’s worth it. Plus it’s safer to eat while drinking especially since you’re traveling on public transportation and/or walking. We had a lot of fun with our group and I would definitely recommend this tour.

A great tour led by Ulrich. He was very knowledgeable, informative and insightful. It was chilling to stand at the same places where Hitler and the nazi machine once were walking, but it is essential to learn from the past.Ulrich was excellent talking about Munich’s key role during the rising of National Socialism. Personally, it made me reflect a lot about the stupidity of any war. Well done!

The explanation of the origin of the beer culture was the fascinating. It was a friendly and relaxed evening. It felt wonderful interacting with a local. I felt like understand Munich and her traditions now. Was a fun memorable experience for me.

We loved our guide! Super friendly, English speaking and made the trip fun! We got to see the city and learn history along the way. Highly recommend.

It was great! Our guide Ulrich was awesome and really took the time to explain everything to us!
