We were in Dusseldorf at the beginning of May 2022 on a stag party and spent 2 hours on the tour our guide was very knowledgeable of the city and the beers and after the tour for the last few days of our break we ditched the larger and drank the local Altbier instead, both the tour and the Altbier are highly recommended

We were a group of 10 women and 2 guides who made it very fun and interesting. It was 2 nice hours through Cologne with a lot of interesting facts about the art of brewing in Cologne and funny anecdotes about Cologne in the past. Our guides were called Pablo and Moritz

Our tour guide Pina was super nice. The tour was really fun, you learn a lot about Cologne's bridal culture and of course there's also top Kölsch. Pina gave us a really entertaining tour of the breweries and otherwise answered any questions we had.

It was a very good tour, Peter was able to tell us a lot about the individual breweries and Cologne.

It was very interesting and lots of delicious beer! Thanks
