    We really enjoyed the tour, Tina our guide was very refreshing and told nice stories and anecdotes about Cologne. We only gave it a good rating because we didn't think the price-performance ratio was right. The meeting point could be better organized, you have to look for your guide in the turmoil among many other groups.

    Normally 5 stars, but because we were unfortunately also in Sion, only 4 stars. It would also have been nice if you had reserved a table in the last brewery so that you could stay there after the tour. But the tour is still recommended. Fun, knowledgeable and the guides were great!

    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
