We had Rainer as a guide and he was great. Very knowledgable and helpful! We were able to see much more of the city than if we were to try and wonder ourselves.
If your looking for an evening with great atmosphere, singing, eating and drinking... this is highly recommended, we went here on the Saturday evening as the Oktoberfest was heaving. It was just like being in one of the Oktoberfest tents. Amazing atmosphere then followed by accent up the Olympic tower with a drink finished the night off perfectly.
This is a great tour, and a great way to meet new people. The Tour guide, Max was knowledgeable of the points he covered. He stumbled a few times, but overall well worth it!!!

Great tour. Open top bus took us on sightseeing tour before we got off to walk to the Hofbrauhaus for dinner. It was an excellent dinner but we ate in a small side room and not in the larger dining hall. After dinner and some walking tour near the Hofbrauhaus, we got on the bus again and went to the Olympic Tower where we first went to the top to see the town and then down to the rotating restaurant for a cocktail and socializing for a 40 minutes. Then back on the bus for a few more sights before returning to the starting point. All in all, it was a very enjoyable tour.
Excellent evening. Our guide, Max, was brilliant. The food and entertainment were first class.
Really good evening.
Excellent trip to the hofbrauhaus with tour guide Max. Nice small group. Great value highly recommend.
This was a great night and a lot of fun. You have a variety of tours rolled into one! You have a bus tour explaining the highlights of the city. Then you go for supper, which was excellent. You then go on a walking tour of the old part of the city, and then you head to the Olympic village and up to the top of the restaurant for a tremendous view of the city and a drink.
We had a fabulous time, though after leaving the Hofbrauhaus evrywhere else felt a little rushed. However in the scheme of things this mattered little a highly recommended tour if you can get on it.
My Wife and I had an excellent visit to Munich. It was excellent, and our tour guide was brilliant, and great fun. We had wanted to visit Munich for quite a few years, and decided to do it this year. It was everything we wanted. great beer, nice food, and very good people. In addition, the marching bands were very good too. The whole thing was a great experience, and we will return next year as well.
This was an excellent tour. One of the best ones I have done. The person who did the tour was excellent. We did the tour on the evening of September 5th. I am not sure what his name was. He really made the tour great. He was very knowledgeable about the city and its history. Dinner was excellent and we really enjoyed going to the night club. The group we had was excellent. Going up the Olympic Tower was also great. Would highly recommend.
Excellent tour. Tour guides were great and the experience of Hofbrahaus excellent!
This was an awesome night! The Hofbrauhaus had great food and amazing entertainment. I especially loved the atmosphere inside the beer hall. Everyone was enjoying themselves in there! One of my favorite parts was when the chef came out with several musicians and started serving pig right in front of my table. Seeing Munich from the top of the Olympic Tower after our dinner was wonderful too!
Great time! Hofbräuhaus was awesome! A definite must if you're in Munich.
It was a great night out, fully recommend this to anyone wishing to visit Munich :)
What can I say---you must do this place---went went on this tour on our first night---right before Oktoberfest...a pre-warm up night! People dancing on tables with strangers...conga lines ...all with huge glasses of beer [that were more like pitchers...the band was terrific and the singing of "ein prosit" became the mantra of our Oktoberfest week! The band was authentic German....and this place is always packed with people...lots of fun! We went up in the Olympic Tower at night---and we could see the lights of the Wei sen festival tents and rides....so big and amazing! A great way to start Oktoberfest and meet a lot of interesting people :-)
Coming into this tour, I wasn’t sure what to expect – we’d seen both positive and negative reviews, but assumed those reviews were based on expectations (for instance, negative reviews for the Olympic Tower portion b/c it was too foggy – not something Viator or the tour guide could control… Or the ‘night club’ portion where there wasn’t enough seating, it was too loud, etc.). So we tried to go into this tour with an open mind and were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Reiner, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history and culture of the city. He was more than happy to answer all of our questions and more than tolerable with our group when we took part in the bier consumption at the Hofbrauhaus dinner. The Hofbrauhaus was an absolute blast – we had a table along the perimeter of the room, so we had a perfect vantage point for taking it all in.
One caveat to our tour, they altered the order of the tour b/c it was Oktoberfest – we went to the night club after Hofbrauhaus, but before the Olympic Tower, so although we had a private room and it was a very pleasant atmosphere in the night club, the club/dancing portion hadn’t technically opened yet – we got there around 9 and it didn’t open until 10 for afterhours/live music – there were people eating dinner, but not the typical night club atmosphere you think of – at least from an ‘American’ perspective.
After the night club, we were bused to the Olympic Tower for an afterhours tour – we had a clear night, so it was very neat to see the city at night from that perspective. The Oktoberfest grounds were the highlight, with the Ferris wheel and roller coasters, all lit up off in the distance – very cool experience overall.
Definitely worth doing. The Hofbrauhaus was fun as was the trip to Olympic Park and the ride to the top of the tower for a beautiful view of Munich at night. A nightcap at a famous hotel was a plus. Good time, good food
it was raining but we still had a really good time. our guide was excellent and dinner was great.
What an amazing start to our trip to Munich! Our tour guide, Annette was simply outstanding. We got off to a late start which was more due to other passengers than our guide or driver. When we finally left Annette started the tour off with some jokes and a very informative tour of the city on the way to the Hofbrauhaus.
Based on other reviews my friend and I knew it would be difficult to get extra beer there so when we sat we set about trying to get our server's attention and he was extremely helpful. The Hofbauhaus was really something to see, despite its dark history, it was warm and fun and the singing and dancing were really fun to watch.
The Olympic tower offered really beautiful views of the city, and there was a great little gift shop on the main floor.
The last stop had live music and a nice ambience. The drinks were ridiculously over priced! Stick with the one that is included in the tour.
As other reviewers said, we got back late. This did put my friend and I in a tricky situation as we missed the last bus to our hotel and couldn't get a cab (we were staying just outside of Munich) and we were very lucky to have security offer us a ride.
What a fabulous evening. The Hofbrauhaus served great food and was very entertaining. The trip to the Olympic tour was also very interesting. I really enjoyed the drink at the bar at the end of the evening in a beautiful bar. My only complaint is that we didn't return to 1:15 am instead of midnight. I wish we could have been on time because we had an early wakeup call the next morning and it was difficult. Our guide was excellent! Not only was he informative, but he was very social with the group.
