Great beer tour!

My family and I signed up for this beer tour and were not disappointed in any way. In total our tour was a group of eight that were a lot of fun. And the tour guide was fantastic! So much information and such good company to talk to. By the end of the tour we all felt like we had made some new friends and we all hugged goodbye. I highly recommend it!

We enjoyed all the small spots that we went to and were recommended, but we were expecting more information/history about the beer. Also, you do not get to go inside the brewery in the red light district. You go into a small tasting room and you just choose what you want to drink. Not much information about the beers overall. I would save a beer tour for some place in Brugge.

I always do a food or beer tour on my first day in a new city as it is a great way to get the lay of the land and discover new places you might not have known about. I was a bit let down on this tour. The guide, while quite friendly, spent more time chatting with the bartenders than explaining anything about beer. He did give some information about the area as we walked place to place, but it was drawn out by questions we had to ask. The 'snack' was literally shelled peanuts. If you are an independent traveler, I wouldn't recommend this tour, especially for the price of 20/beer!

The key to a good tour is the guide and our guide was OUTSTANDING!! He was knowledgeable...and had selected great bars with different types of beers for us to sample. Samples were plenty...full size beers. Loved getting a tour of Amsterdam everywhere we walked as well. Perfect to end the night near the Red Light District so we didn't have far to go. Guide really tried to find us the best match for our liking at each pub. Loved that it was only a small group....felt like a personal tour.

This tour was fun. Small group, four bars. Our guide was 45 minutes late and I ended up paying for our first round of beers at the meeting place in addition to the tour. This was was a one and done apparently the bar where joined the tour,Beer Circus, runs their own beer tastings. I would not do this again as we left another tour early to meet this tour and then waited and waited for the guide. There was an intern who had just started with the company and she was actually very accommodating.
