1. Oktoberfest München: Tour & Beerhall (Bierzelt) Reservation

Oktoberfest Tour & Party (evening reservation): About the tour The genuine Munich city explorers from MucTours show you the Oktoberfest from its authentic side on a Saturday, without tourist traps, admission chaos and tedious search for seats. Instead, nice people, mega atmosphere and party guarantee at the best time on the best day - Saturday evening (from 6 pm)! After a Wiesn tour of the festival grounds with a little history, amusing anecdotes and special personal recommendations, we go to one of the large beer tents, where at our reserved tables an appetizer board, two beers and a chicken (or comparable food and drinks) are waiting for you. Our guides are super networkers, you will surely feel at home. And of course, after closing time, we recommend the best after-Wiesn parties. Tour Itinerary We meet at 4:30 pm near the Goetheplatz subway station and stroll through picturesque side streets towards the Wiesn. Once we arrive at the Oktoberfest grounds, we'll start by showing you a few legendary rides, stands worth visiting, and the way to the "Oide (historic) Wiesn," telling you amusing episodes from our personal Wiesn experiences, and getting the mood barometer high for the first time with a schnapps. On the way to our marquee, we pass a few Instagram-worthy motifs so that everyone can capture their personal memories of a great day in photographs. At 6 p.m., we take our tables reserved until closing time in one of the large tents. On the tables, lavishly filled Brotzeitbrettl with Bavarian specialties are already waiting for us. The first beer is quickly ordered and served - and then the party can really get started! In the evening, the bands always play very atmospheric German and international songs that encourage us to sing along and dance. So we celebrate exuberantly at our places and enjoy beer and delicacies. At 10:30 p.m. it's curfew in the tent, then we go out together and give real insider tips for after-Wiesn parties to all those who want to experience more.

I am giving 5 stars because I cannot give 10 stars. This tour was one of the most fun experiences my wife and I have ever had. Boris was exceptional in making this tour a memory for us to have forever. He started the tour by bringing us "breakfast" which was a delicous local lager and educated us on the history of Oktoberfest, and continued to give us facts about German beer as we walked to the festival. He then navigated us through all of the festival giving us history on rides dating back over 100 years as well as the original tents and opening ceremonies. He then took us to Augustiner tent for a local experience of the festical, we had an attractive charcutuerie board and pretzel and 2 delicous litres of local German lager. He taught us the "prost" song and continued sharing awesome stories about past Oktoberfest experiences and how to get have the best time while at the festival. I honestly was hesitant to book a tour for Oktoberfest but with Boris I would do it everytime.

While a tour of Oktoberfest wouldn’t be necessary as it is easy to navigate, the tour was worthwhile in making the experience easier and more meaningful. We would not have known about all of the unique customs and some of the not to miss carnival attractions. We returned to Oktoberfest a few days after the tour and felt like pros. The guides were friendly and professional and took good care of the group. I did find returning and hanging out with a non tourist group to bring more fun to Oktoberfest though so I recommend either breaking away from the group after or returning again to experience it with locals.

Oktoberfest had been on my bucket list for such a long time and I'm so thankful that we did it this way. You won't find a better tour operator for Oktoberfest and if you're lucky enough to be on Team Timmy your day will be even more outstanding. Food, beer, history, and plenty of laughs - will be back next year and the one after that and the one after that etc. for sure!

Fantastic and fun experience. Recommend this tour! Boris was great, a knowledgeable and personable guide. Thanks

Well organised and informative, great sense of fun to match the event
