Austin was an EXCELLENT tour guide! Very knowledgeable and made the tour very fun!
Highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to attend the Oktoberfest in Munich. Kieth was our guide for the day, he was very knowledgeable and explained all about the history of the Oktoberfest and also took us on a tour of the grounds. The whole atmosphere inside the tent is great and the time just flew by.
Best and most economical way to attend this event. Our guides were very informative and fun. Well done, keep it up.
A fantastic experience! The tour surpassed our expectations. This was our first visit to Europe and Oktoberfest, and we were especially fortunate to have Ian as our tour guide. This witty and highly knowledgeable guide first lead us on a tour of the festival grounds giving us the history of Oktoberfest and showing us the various areas and rides, famous and infamous. The tour included a ride on the Riesenrad, Oktoberfests famous Ferris wheel. The tour of the fairgrounds was well placed allowing all of us to stay close despite the large crowds.
THEN-CAME-THE-BEER-TENT joyous chaos! Ian got us settled at our table and, the beer, the food, and frivolity begins. A most enjoyable time.
My wife and I are only occasional drinkers, so after 2 liters of beer each, we had both especially my wife had surpassed our capacity. Ian was alerted by some friends at the table and helped us, first helping us get through the crowds, personally, to the toilets. He found a female sever to help my wife. Afterwards, back at the table, he made sure we got liter mugs of water to re-hydrate. Later, after I determined that I was stable enough to navigate our way back to the hotel, Ian took us by the hand again and made certain we were headed towards the taxi stand and safely on our way to the hotel.
Though all of this Ian managed give us very memorable Oktoberfest experience yes, even THAT part. We felt we were in the hands of a dear friend.
This was a great afternoon. Our guide, Keith did a terrific job of getting us to the grounds no easy feat and gave us a brief walkabout with a review of the fairgrounds highlights. He was informative, helpful and entertaining. Great location in the Hofbrau tent- our 5 hour reservation actually flew by. Would definitely recommend to anyone as a first class Oktoberfest trip!
Dani was very funny and provided us with good insights yo Oktoberfest.
Keith was our guide. He did an amazing job organizing the group through a very crowded and noisy venue. He was very informative and fun when he presented the history of Octoberfest. Once inside the tent, which was an amazing experience, Keith than made sure that everyone's orders for the beers and chickens were well taken care of. My daughter and I loved this tour. We were fortunate enough to be in a fun group, and have a fabulous tour guide. My only suggestion is that just serving a 1/2 a chicken, and nothing else was not well done. We should have had vegetables, and a starch with the chicken. The table in front of us had a better meal
This tour was great! Big thanks to Yolanda for making it such a fun experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in experiencing Oktoberfest for the first time.
The best and easiest way to tour the grounds and get into a tent with the least amount of hassle.
Our guide was Dani Danielle and she was terrific. Always smiling and very entertaining while making sure you have all the information you need to make it a wonderful day.
Had a great tour guide, Austin. He was knowledgeable, humorous, and friendly. Wanted to book a tour for Oktoberfest to make sure we had a seat in a tent. Didn't realize how much history and customs we wouldn't have known about without a guide. Went back another day on our own and felt we knew where to go and what to do after going with a guide.

This was a great tour. We really enjoyed learning the history of Oktoberfest, or the Theresienwiese as the locals call it. It was also fun to learn about must do things on the midway, such as watching the Toboggan ride. The best part was going to the Hofbräu tent and participating in the party. We would not have gotten into one the tents and gotten a table any other way. Big shout out to our guide Austin!
it was a great tour and our guide was excellent ... a really fun way to live de oktoberfest
This was our first time to Oktoberfest and heard stories about tents being so crowded that you csn not get into a tent, so we decided to do this tour. Was the best decision ever! #great tour #literbeirs #farriswheel
I highly recommend cause if your one or two people you will never get into a tent to drink. By buying the tickets you get into a tent and will be able to drink. Remember you can only drink beer at Oktoderfest if your in a tent. Tour guide was very helpful.
5000 drunken Germans, Americans, Brits, and Aussies under one tent with beer flowing like river, the band playing and people screaming like there is no tomorrow is why you came here for. Because, there is no place like this in the US or anywhere in the world. We were there for five hours and I have no recollection as to how those five hours passed so fast. One day, I will do it again.
Ein, Zwei, Drei, ZUPPA !!!
Everything was great, and we had the time of our lives! The tour guides were very knowledgeable, and gave us an interesting background to the history and significance of Oktoberfest. The reserved seating in the HB tent alone was well worth the price of the tour, as this is one of the "crazier" tents on the Wiesn. We got to meet a lot of great people in our group, and a had a blast once we were in the tents!
We enjoyed the Oktoberfest very much. I have wanted to go for a long time, now I have been it was great. The tour guide was very good a lot of fun was had.
Ian was our guide and he was FABULOUS. So knowledgeable and entertaining! His sidekick however, not sure of his name, had ZERO personality and was quite rude. He would not engage anyone in discussion except the gal in our group from Boston who he ended up making out with at our table. Now regarding the tour itself.....it was great to get a bit of history about Oktoberfest and check out the venue prior to going into the tents. It is craziness inside the tents and we were so thankful that we ended up booking this tour because we almost tried to just go and wait in line for a table instead of booking the tour. That would have been a huge mistake because it is jam packed!! It is so much fun and a once in a lifetime experience. Well worth it and tons of fun!
Great fun and a great way to get into the tent for some beer and food.
Worth every penny. Our tour guide Daniel rocked. Gave a great tour of the fairgrounds including lots of history. Made getting into our tent, ordering food and beer very simple. By the end of our time in the tent it seemed like all of the people on our table were family. A must do. No wasted time standing in line. Prost!!
Oktoberfest was more fun that we'd ever imagined! Our guide, Daniel, was informative and fun! Nice tour of the grounds, a great ride on the ferris wheel, and beer, chicken and lots of laughs inside the HofBrau tent! The subway and walk to our hotel was *interesting* (some of our group might have enjoyed Oktoberfest a bit too much), but that's for another story! ;) We had a terrific time!!!
It was a great way to go to Oktoberfest for the first time. The guides were great and gave us a lot of interesting information. The tour is pricey but it is the best way to understand what is going on and where to go. If you are with a large group you may want to skip it but for a small party it is worth the money.
Really great tour. It was great to have a table booked for the afternoon! Really knowledgeable guide about Oktoberfest.
