It was cool getting some of the background history behind Oktoberfest, but it was a bit expensive for what we got out of it.The tour wasn't anything we couldn't have done on our own. Wouldn't do it again, especially for the price.
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..
We could have done this on our own. The guide was was polite and knowledgeable, but the tour was boring. Once seated inside the tent we were put back in a far corner way away from the action.
Way too much money for the return.
Not a good overall experience. The tour guide was excellent but the seating was terrible. We were crammed at a picnic table that was literally against the wall and the next table with no space to walk. If someone wanted to get up the entire side of the table had to get up and stand in the walkway. We were charged an extra 2 euros for each "free" beer because the price went up. That was Viator's problem, not mine. We couldn't get out of there and go to another tent quick enough.
This tour was definitely overpriced for what we saw, did and got. Had we known more about Oktoberfest in Munich, and how accessible it was, we could have done it on our own for a lot less. Our tables were placed/located in a corner of the hall which precluded any reasonable view of the floor activities and/or entertainment. It would have been easy to buy a ferris wheel ticket too. At about $123 pp; we could have done it all and got a lot more food and drink on our own.
ridiculously overpriced and didn't even get to use my second drink ticket - was not allowed to get back into the tent! and the "tour" was basically walkign around the festival grounds - which u should be able to do by yourself?!? how difficult is it to tell that it is a carousel?
The tour guide was ok, had to walk alot more than expected(having a bad knee, he didn't seem to care much, so My husband and I were way behind and did not hear half of what was going on) Oktoberfest seating , being reserved where not very good and they shoved us in a crowded corned with to many people at one table.
