We did the tour on a Saturday night as a couple. There was another American couple in the group, and 4 Dutch guys. Quite a mixed audience and our host, Michael, made sure we were all having fun. I can definitely recommend the tour and will do it again, when I'm back in Cologne.

He brought us to 4 different pubs, where we always had a table for us, regardless of how busy the pub was. While trying out several different Koelsch beers, Michael talked a bit about Cologne, and the beers, but not in a typical tourist-guide style. He was very natural, threw in a joke here and there, and he often engaged the group with funny stories. The way he does it sparks a conversation in the rest of the group and after a few Koelsch we were all sharing some fun stories to each other. The 'tour' quickly turned into a fun night out with some new friends.

Michael also took care of the practicalities, like ordering, paying, and guiding us through the city to the next pub. We just had to focus on drinking the Koelsch and having a laugh with the rest of the group. My wife is pregnant, so Michael always made sure she had something non-alcoholic to drink as well.

We had a large group which Stefan handled with ease.

He took us on the tour as per the description but also added history about the area. He was always planning the next venue to suit the group, this flexibility helps to build the right tour for the group.

He took us to a 5th bar as a recommendation to start our night from, Stefan also stayed here for a while with us and added to to fun.

Great guide, great tour!

My Wife and I took a tour while we were in Cologne on our honeymoon and was by far our favorite activity we did there. Anci, our tour guide, was not only very knowledgeable about Kolsch beer but was also extremely passionate about her city and its history. Definitely a must do if you're visiting Cologne.

Had a great time on the tour, our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the bierhaus history as well as area history. Our tour ended overlooking the Rhein river where we enjoyed many beers and a great dinner. Highly recommend this walking tour!

My wife and I took this tour after the Freewalk Cologne tour. Stefan was a great guide - knowledgeable about the beer and the history of Cologne. We got to try 4 different Kölsch and see some of the more authentic Bräuhäuser in the old city. Stayed at the last one for food with our fellow tour participant. I was even lucky enough to hang out with him the next day at the Tour de France Grand Depart in Düsseldorf! Great company and great beer!
