What people are saying about Bavaria

Daniella was the perfect guide. Everything was well organised in advance. We had lots and lots of food to try. Even so much that I could keep some cheese on the side for later. At the end we also had a delish dessert and then a beer of the new (seventh) Munich approved brewery. Perfect all together. I recommend and would do it again with Daniella.

imagine a tour to make friends. It's worth immersing yourself in the world of Bavaria beer. guide personifies the friend who invites us to drink. super informal, we use subway and walking.
