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!
Arthur was a fantastic guide. The tour had a great balance of types of bars small dive type, microbrewery, locals favorites. On the walks between the locations, he also filled in local history and interesting tidbits. Overall, would highly recommend!
This tour was well worth the time and money. Can I was an excellent and welcoming guide. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. The small group setting was perfect and I would recommend this tour to anyone-especially the solo traveler looking for a fun night out!
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.
