This was a great way to try some of the beer Cologne is known for. Learned quite a bit on the different styles the same beer is made. Great fun to walk round and check out some local pubs and drink some beer! Chirz from the Niagara Area of Ontario Canada!

Interesting explanations, pleasantly relaxed atmosphere. Our guide Boze did it well for the whole group and answered all questions perfectly. Our mixed group with different age groups quickly found each other. Due to long delays on the train, we were able to postpone the tour to 2 days later at short notice and without any problems.
