Great tour. Only drawback is that the "entertainment" is not a show as such. People dancing, but so crowded and noisy, that one tends to forget it's even going on. Food fabulous, and people delightful.
The Hofbrauhaus is a must do. A fun night in which we met some good folks from other countries and enjoyed the evening together. Food, beer and ambiance was good.
Tour was nice. Dinner at hofbrauhaus was very good. The drink at the hotel was nice but there was no live music as advertised in the tour brochure.
This tour was nice. We enjoyed dinner and entertainment at the Hofbrauhaus. The night club with live entertainment was really nice.
Trip was very good, but unfortunately only 2 of us on it; however, the night was definitely worth the money and was a trip to remember.
This was an absolutely fun tour. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the views of Munich at night. My only disappointment was the dinner at the Haufbrahaus. We must have arrived late because there was very little food left on the buffet table. Thankfully they had plenty of beer!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the Hofbrauhaus. The rest of the evening no. We had cocktails later that night at a high end hotel near a Michael Jackson shrine. The staff at the hotel were extremely rude. A busload of people and we were only allowed a few seats. Then to the Olympic park. In the dark. What a waste. You couldn't see anything. That should have been the first stop. Our guide though was very nice.
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent trip to Munich that included the Munich by night tour and dinner at the Hofbrauhaus. The location for bus pickup was not exactly correct but we eventually found it. The driver and host were good and she was quite informative.We did not think the meal at the Hofbrauhaus matched any other meals we had ay any other time in Munich or elsewhere for that matter , so that was a little disappointing but it could not spoil the atmosphere created by many jubilant patrons in the venue.
I think this tour has a lot of potential, but doing it completely in the dark wasn't actually all that interesting. It would be better if the Olympic tower was visited first, around dusk offering sunset views vs completely in the dark. You do the tour portion after dinner (which the description isn't really clear about). It would have been better if the tour portion was first, and then went to dinner. That way, if you wanted to stay at Hofbrauhaus after others wanted to go, you could. I think the "club" after is not really adding anything to this tour. Glad we did it, but not sure if it was worth the money.
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.
The tour itself was fun, but the tour guide was not very reliable. He told us all the trains ran until 2 am, but in fact the train to the outer towns stops around 11pm and we had to pay almost 80 euro for a taxi ride back to our hotel.
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.
