My Review
I and my 2 friends, did the Oktoberfest on Monday and the bike tour on Tuesday, I really felt that the bike tour overwhelmed the previous day as it was a pleasure to ride through the streets of Munich, the gardens, past the monuments etc with Ian, our tour guide at the helm. I and my 2 friends enjoyed the atmosphere and the manner in which Ian gave us frequent breaks, one of my friends couldn't cycle too well due to a previous knee injury but Ian spaced out the tour well so that it wasn't too tiring, the ride through the 'English' garden with a lunch break at one of the 'biere gartens' etc. Ian, our guide made the entire experience a delight !

My Review
The tour was quite insightful and detailed thanks to Ian, our guide who took efforts to explain in detail the culture and background of the event, he was very well prepared and knew each and every aspect of the fest: the origin of the Oktoberfest, participating breweries, historical significance to the region etc etc After a detailed background of the 'fest' , followed by a tour of the grounds, a Ferris Wheel ride, and the final culmination at the 'Hofbrauhaus' tent - one of the more popular beer tents, this was followed by 2 one litre beer steins and half a roast chicken each. In all this tour covered quite a bit of the Oktoberfest, however I feel that it was overpriced with what was offered. Yes - we did have reserved seats - however they were reserved only till 5p.m. and the hall was half full till 6 p.m. when the actual action started, my suggestion is if this tour covered the action from 6p.m. to 10 p.m. it would be worth the cost as the singing and dancing actually begins later..before 5 p.m. you don't actually need a reservation to enter the tents, as they're empty anyway. However, to be fair it was an enjoyable event overall..
