Phil was awesome! We had a great time. It was very informative. I finally understood the meaning of Kölsch and had a much better understanding of Köln drinking culture. Our group was amazing too - a small group of 5 people - Liyan and Tessa especially! It was super fun!

This tour was amazing! We have learned a lot about the breweries as well as the history of Köln. We had so much fun and that was all because of Phil! He has a lot of knowledge and made jokes too. He was able to answer every questions we had. Would highly recommend this tour!

Max did a good job as a tour guide. He knows a lot about the breweries. We've visited three. It is fun to more about the establishments and the Kölsch beer culture. I would recommend this tour, although 29 euros is quite a lot of money, to be honest. We've spent 21 euro 50, which is reasonable in my opinion.
