Great evening!
, Jun 2022
Our guide was great! He gave us lots of great historical info in-between stops. He was knowledgeable and fun to be around! We loved the beers and the culture around it in this town. We would definitely do it again!
Interesting and fun, and beer drinking at the same time

The experience was great, the guide was really good. Friendly, telling all the stories and funny jokes about the area and their cultural particularity. Even thought it was raining the whole time we had a great time walking to each brewery and getting to know the Altbier culture
Wonderful flavors of Düsseldorf
, Dec 2021
The weather was frightful but our guide Kim was delightful. We learned about the different ‘house’ breweries and tasted beer from all of them. The breweries were all within easy walking distances from each other. We also learned about the history of Düsseldorf. If we had to do this tour again, I would recommend doing it at the beginning of our visit so that we could have a better knowledge of Düsseldorf for the remainder of our stay.

Best beer your ever

What can I say this was one of the best drinking tours we have been to. Our guide Kristoph (apologies for the spelling) was amazing, he was soooo knowledgeable and introduced us to Getman drinking culture and etiquette which is a must if you’ve never been before. Due to corona we were the only English guests but he was very accommodating and we didn’t feel left out at all, intact we spoke to all the German guests who were lovely, one lady even bought us a German beer snack which we had at the last bar called Mettbrötchen (raw pork sandwich) I know it sounds vile but it was AMAZING!. Don’t miss out on this fantastic tour or you will regret it

You pass along all the small bars in Düsseldorf and get a view you won't get if you just went to the touristic scene. The tour was made by the fantastic guide we had, with great story's and good beer.
