This was a great tour involving 46 people and 2 guides. Our guide Daniel provided us with a detailed explanation of the Oktoberfest's history, layout and expectations. We walked most of the grounds with our guide who pointing out along the way the major breweries involved and big tents. We then sampled food and drink.
Only drawback was that we had to pay extra 2 euros for each beer taken (as tax), notwithstanding that we had been provided with beer tickets as part of the tour. This was not advertised in any documentation. Would recommend.
Excellent. Great guide, great table at the Hofbrau tent and such a fun day. Would love to do it again!!!
great to lean some histroy and aspects of the whoel festival, also good to get blind drunk with peopel all roudn the globe from our tour
The tour was hard work for the guide, it's Oktoberfest so its going to be busy and noisy bit for what it was it was really good. I now feel i know a lot more about the history of the festival and its traditions. At the end of the tour we were on a table with people from the group and it was a great laugh. We were all tourists from different parts of the world all looking in the same place for he same reason so it made a great shared experience. This was my second trip to Munich during Oktoberfest and i still enjoyed it. If its your first trip and your over 30 Id say its a must.
Awesome and well worth the money!! Tour guides Daniel and Kevin were were extremely informative, very funny and wonderfully personable!!
It was excellent. Our guide was very attentive to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. It started on time and was informative.
My husband and I thoroughly appreciated the benefits of the Octoberfest tour in Munich,Sept. 2012 ! All of their staff is very helpful. The guides shepherded our
Group from the main Munich train station to the site of The Octoberfest, (not as close as it may look on the map). $ well spent.
The easiest way to do Oktoberfest. Guide was excellent. Tour starting location was fairly convenient. Using Viator instead of trying to make the reservations directly with the tour operator was very convenient. We plan to use Viator for our next trip.
Had a fun day at Octoberfest. Would recommend that everyone do it once in their lifetime. I do not drink beer but still enjoyed the day, the costumes, the music etc. Was great to have reserved seating in a tent to start the day. Could stay as long as one liked to experience the other tents and the festival atmosphere.
So thankful we booked this tour. Very knowledgible local tour guide. Ferris wheel ride provided and incredible view of the entire park. Enjoyed our time at the Hoffbrauhaus in a designated area. We may not have gotten into a tent otherwise. Definitely a must for tourists!
My friends and I had a great time. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. She gave us a good overview of the history of Oktoberfest and especially the tents without boring us. I highly recommend this tour to anyone new to the experience. Any returners will only find the seating in a prime tent useful. We met a lot of great people and this made my most recent trip to Germany a great one. Thanks Viator!
Great! Our guide was friendly, and knowledgeable! After meeting at the station, you take a train and quick walk to the Oktoberfest entrance. You then walk around the grounds and are shown a couple of interesting sights, and get to ride the ferris wheel! You're then taught the official Hofbrau drinking song, and led into the tent. Our guide was great, and though could knock off at midday, stayed another couple of hours. Word of advice: Try and keep a bit of change on you. Yes, you get 2 free beers included with the tour, and some chicken - but for every free beer - you are expected to tip 2 euro. Each beer you buy after that is 9 euro of your own cash + the 2 euro tip! This tour is a great way to meet other people to go drinking with and generally spend the day with! Your reservation at the table ends at 5PM - at which point you need to move. Your options are 1) to try and find another table within the same tent (if you leave the tent, you're unlikely to get into another tent anywhere), or 2) leave the tent, and go on a few rides, get some random snacks, and enjoy the rest of the fair! Do it!
Great tour, guide was great and very knowledgeable of the history of Oktoberfest. Had more than enough time to do anything you wanted.
Great guide and a wonderful time was had by all. Very pleasurable.

Amazing. Had no idea that Oktoberfest is a family affair. It is huge. The tour and history before hitting the beer tent was extremely interesting. I appreciated the Ferris wheel ride as it gave some perspective as to the size of this event. Met so many amazing people from all across the world in the beer tents and learned some German drinking songs! One of the highlights of my trip. Highly recommend the tour.
This was great, people, fun, music and beer. Thank god I took pictures, no one would believe it. Thanks.
This was our honeymoon and our guide Kevin was amazing he made us feel like we were the most important people there. He also remembered everyone in our groups name. He made the trip so much fun. He also gave us great recommendations on where to eat in Munich. He was so knowledgeable about Oktoberfest history and the city of Munich. We had a blast. We will be back.
All I can say is 5 Stars - Easy to find meeting point-
Kevin was GREAT…… Group of less than 20 we made new friends and had a GREAT time.
There was no que for Ferris Wheel or the Tent –
Simple, if you’re in Munich during this time, you have to do this tour….
This was a blast! We especially liked our guide - Kevin. He was fun and since he is from the United States it made talking easy. Lots of beer and crazy people.
Had an amazing time! The tour company employees were very nice and informative. They even had a few liters of beer with us.
This was excellent! If I were to return for Oktoberfest there is a very good chance I would take this exact tour again! Our guide (forgot her name) was very good.
