I had a very different idea of what the evening would be like. While we had a decent time, I found the evening disconnected with little connection from event to event. It also felt a bit rushed. I suppose it might have been better if I were a beer drinker. Food was so so.

Fast paced tour. Hofbrauhaus was nice, wish we could have stayed there longer. The nightclub was just a hotel bar that was empty. It was disappointing. The Olympic tower was a nice trip with good views.

Don't think that it was good value for money.

The tour guide was very pleasant and personable and worked very hard to make for a pleasant evening for everyone. In addition to the narrative of the tour, she took dinner and drink orders and coordinated the food service at the Hofbrauhaus for our group. We were in Munich during the 2nd week of Oktoberfest and its likely we could not have visited the Hofbrauhaus without this tour. That said, we are not sure we'd recommend this tour. The dinner at Hofbrauhaus was reasonably good, but service was poor. The waiter was not a happy person and appeared to "fuss" at our guide frequently about orders and food delivery. Once seated, it took 30 minutes for our beer to be served and another 30 minutes for the entree. Obviously Hofbrauhaus was packed and it was extremely hot with no air circulation. The music was enjoyable but hard to hear due to the volume of people celebrating and drinking. The brief stop of the hotel bar for a cocktail was a bit rushed, lasting about 20 minutes, due to the lateness of dinner and the need to proceed to the Olympic Tower. We arrived to find the elevator operator upset at our delayed arrival and he displayed a very rude and arrogant attitude to the tour guide. Our stay at the top observation deck lasted less than 10 minutes. The tour concluded back at the main Train Station after midnight. I booked this tour because of favorable reviews and I feel our experience was due to the delays and poor service at the Hofbrauhaus, and felt the overall value of what we paid and received was lacking. It certainly was not the fault of the tour guide.

Our tour guide did not seem like she wanted to be there at all and was just going through the motions. The dinner was interesting but nothing you couldn't do by yourself for a cheaper price. My husband and I took a taxi from nymphenburg palace area and back for less then 30 euro and had dinner here the night before which was much more memorable.

Again, this was run by a "Sight Seeing" tour group, and that was what it was. A bunch of sight seeing - drive by - without much substance. The dinner at the Hofbrauhaus was a major disappointment. A piece of pork in a bowl with some gut of some sort. That was it. Would have been better if the tour had charged more and given us an opportunity to have a real meal. The food looked great, but we were not able to order something we wanted.
