We had a great afternoon together with our guide. We were a smaller personal group of 3 people. We learned a lot about beer and Munich, meandered through the streets and discovered hidden details. As a stopover we had a beer tasting which was very empty and tasty. Last but not least, we had a good and hearty dinner with our guide, where there was still some time for a few personal conversations. A PERFECT gift for my partner. Thanks

I was the only person on the tour and when I asked Paul why he did not cancel, he said it wouldn't be professional. A great guy who truly loves his city and showed me how to appreciate the taste of Bier rather than just drink it for the sake of it. Every bar/place we went into, he was greeted like a best friend.

The tour around Monaco was amazing! The guide (a guy from Bressanone) speaks German and Italian VERY well!! The guide was very kind and the stories about Monaco were so interesting! Absolutely recommended! Cesare Bek
