The guide who showed us around Ocktoberfest was great. She gave us the history, took us to view inside the various tents, & ultimately where we had reservations......in the Hofbrauhaus tent. It was well organized. She answered all of our questions. Had 2 liters of beer/person & half of chicken as promised. We had a blast!
The tour was great. I learned a lot about Oktoberfest that I did not know. I only wish someone had stayed to stop me from drinking so much.
Good tour and very informative but you really don't need reservations to get a seat you normally can walk around and find somewhere to sit. For the history of Oktoberfest though the tour is great.
A Highly, Must do!!
We're soo happy to book the tour. The guide (Yolanda) was amazing, explaining the story of Oktoberfest and the history of the Oktoberfest ground and around! We had so much fun!
Kevin did a great job telling us the history of Oktoberfest and viewing the grounds. we had a bad location in the Hofbrau tent but we made the best of it.
We missed our flight the day before and hence missed the tour. The agency was nice to allow us to do it on the day after next. We were flying out early afternoon, so we had to skip the guided oktoberfest ground tour, but to walk the ground on our own and try the free ferris wheel ride.
Organized and punctual. A great way to go to Oktoberfest stress-free. Prost!
Well worth the money. Gaby was very helpful in explaining the U and S Bahm system and getting the tickets. Yolanda, our guide, provided a good understanding of the history of the fest along with some interesting stories. Walking into the Hofbrau tent was an amazing sight to experience.
Great day for the drinkers, Tents were Very,Very noisy and Meal upgrades were a "rip - off". No seating once out of the tent and for such a large area to see this was disapointing that you could not rest properly. Our two boys went twice.
There were a number of factors that influenced our decision to actually book the Oktoberfest tour, number one being that we, being ignorant Americans, booked our entire Germany trip around a visit to Oktoberfest on October 3. Our thought was that it was a Wednesday, so it should be a slow(er) day on the grounds and we wouldn't need to worry about finding a table. Come to find out, that's Unity Day, leading to one of the busiest days at Oktoberfest. Since the rest of our trip had already been booked, we sought out a tour so that we could have a guaranteed spot for Oktoberfest. There was a moderately large group for the tour, which was eventually separated into two for the actual history and walk through the grounds. There is definitely some interesting history behind everything, and although you could probably find it all with a little research, it was fun to hear it on site. Our tour guide Roland, a rather dry and humorous Brit with a propensity for tea, cigarettes, and eventually beer, pointed out a number of interesting aspects of the grounds and was overall an enjoyable guide. The ferris wheel ride was already paid for by the tour, so we fought the masses and saw the grounds from above. Worth it on a slower day or if the ticket is already paid for, but not obligatory. The Hofbrau tent was bonkers, but if you're going to do Oktoberfest, you may as well do it all the way. Overall, the tour was an affordable and convenient way for a group of oblivious Americans to get into a tent on one of the busiest days of Oktoberfest, but we still had a good time.
It was an interesting overview of the oktoberfest activities.
Awesome tour. Anuschua was funny and interesting and knowledgeable. You can tell she really enjoys what she does and wanted everyone to have a good time.
Our Oktoberfest Tour Guide, Ian (sp?), really did a top-notch job of explaining the history and scope of Oktoberfest and provided a very good tour of the grounds. I was a bit surprised that at least one other tour guuide basically "abandoned" her tour group once she guided them inside to their assigned beer tent seating. This was only about two hours after first meeting them. At least, Ian stayed with us a while to make sure that we knew what to expect, and how to order, at the beer tent. It was an enjoyable time, although the food offering and choices to accompany the two liters of beer were pretty meager. I would probably recommend your tour to other first-timers at the Oktoberfest.
