What can we say? After reading all of the glowing reviews, we thought for sure the averages were being messed with by shills or the too-easily pleased...I mean, this guy CAN'T be this skilled, his tours that great, right?
Color us embarrassed...We were wrong. Embarrassingly wrong.
Levi (The Thirsty Historian himself) did right by us, and more. We did 2 Day Tours (The Oldest Brewery In The World Tour and The Beer Hike) and we learned so much about the history, culture and beer of Bavaria that our brains felt as full as our stomachs were at the end of each day. And yet all in the mellow, Wisconsinian (is that a word? We're making it one for Levi) tones of our guide, so we didn't even realize we were being filled full of cool and useful facts.
Also, he listens, and acts on it to the benefit of his customers. When we mentioned our interest in Schnapps (not really expecting anything, just in conversation), he went out of his way to find a Distillery, and took us there! This was not a place we ever would have found, as it was German speaking only and really only did tastings one day a week at a certain time. Also only in German. And yet he got us there, got us tastings and translated along the way.
Levi, we raise a tiny Schnapps glass to you and your '+5 Tours Of Awesomeness'!
When we come back to Munich, we WILL be contacting you again!
