Much more interesting than histórias das cervejarias de que tastes os produtos, bem como sobre os porões de Viena, dentre outras histórias locais. O guia Bernie é muito simpático e de fato um apreciador de cerveja e história! Adoramos e recommendamos, inclusive por sua paciência ao esperar que eu fizesse as traduções para o meu grupo.

I loved the whole experience. It was very informative, and a fun thing to do. The employees and owner were really nice and helpful, I would highly recommend doing this activity. If you have children it’s kid friendly but I don’t recommend for children under 6 years old. The place was very sanitary and clean.

Gunther was a great guide. She is very personable and engaging - and certainly knows the history. A great 3 hour way to visit the palace!!!

Great way to get a quick overview of the main sights of Vienna. Horst was a wonderful guide.

A good way to see the city at night. Best way explore the city if you have a short holiday.
