What To Expect

Your beer and gastronomic tour begins in the evening at Munich Central Station, where you’ll meet your friendly guide and set off to explore the city’s bustling nightlife and learn the time-honored techniques of German brewing. 

Before heading to the first tasting venue, you’ll take an exclusive private tour through the Beer and Oktoberfest Museum in one of Munich's most historic buildings (standing since 1347). Beer is arguably the cultural symbol of Germany—a symbol that has been well protected throughout history, from the ancient tribal Hausfrauen brew-women to the revered Reinheitsgebot (Purity Law) of 1516. Learn about impassioned moments that have contributed to German beer’s continued tradition of excellence, then take your enhanced appreciation to the beer hall.

With your guide, head to a traditional Bavarian beer garden and world-famous Hofbräuhaus, where you'll sample brews and traditional German nibbles such as pretzels, spaetzle, roast pork, and Weisswurst smothered in sweet mustard. Emerge well-versed in all things beer and snacks—and on your way to becoming a beer-loving local! 

Your tour ends at the Hofbräuhaus, where you can continue in the revelry at your leisure.

Dani - #SimplyTheBest
Chona_S, June 2023
Our tour guide, Dani, was truly fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable and very witty. She took her time to explain everything, asked each person about them (over the night), and was a joy to ‘pal around with.’ Amazing tour!
10/10 would recommend

A winter's night for Bavarian beer and food
Penny_P, June 2023
A must do in Munich! A great tour and the guide was fabulous and knowledgeable. He took us to beer halls that we would not have discovered by ourselves. Even though it was winter, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour along with visiting the old town at night. I am not a big beer drinker but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The beer and food on the tour was fabulous! Highly recommend.
Response from Host, June 2023
Penny, thank you very much for taking your time to rate our tour with five stars. We hope to see you back next time at Radius Tours, PROST!
Not As Advertised
KRISTIN_A, June 2023
The tour was only 2.5 hours instead of 3.5, and that extra hour could have been spent longer in the museum as we were very quickly rushed through and didn’t get to see very much at all. It could have also been spent actually going into or even having a stein (as shown in the photos) of beer at the Hofbrauhaus. We simply walked by it and then walked 10 minutes to a completely deserted restaurant to eat. The tour does not end at the Hofbrauhaus, it felt more like an afterthought.
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you Kristin for sharing your feedback with us on our Beer Tour. May I ask for which day you signed up for the tour ? I would just like to know which day that was so I can check with our guide who was conducting the tour, as we absolutely agree that the tour should be absolutely operated as described in the tour description.
Disappointed, sorry to say
Jesse_M, May 2023
We did think our tour guide Berah was nice and funny but other than that we were disappointed because we expected more from the Viator summary and from YouTube vloggers from the past. At the start of the tour we got that great bottle of beer that we took along with us even on the Underground train. Our beer and pretzel at the beer museum was great and then to our surprise we skipped the HofBrau Haus. As touristy and perhaps less-than-gourmet offerings at the big HofBrau Haus, we were REALLY disappointed to miss this iconic Landmark. The smaller hofbrau haus we landed in was just ok, very quiet and anti-climactic.
Response from Host, June 2023
Jesse, thank you for your feedback. We apologize that the video back then from Viator led to some expectations of the tour, but this video has been a little outdated and since then been taken down already, to not spread too much confusion on the tour, as there is no more options to nowadays reserve in the Hofbräuhaus. The tour very much shows how locals in Munich go along their beer & food culture, and the Hofbräuhaus is not really part of it. Thanks for your understanding.
Left alone
kiersten_s, May 2023
Guide was great but we were left at the Hofbräuhaus after using the WC half way through the tour- can we get half of our money back 😥
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you for your feedback. In our guides defence : He never indicated to use the restrooms, so obviously the guide continued the tour at that point at it will be at your own risk if you wish to stay back and use a restroom. If you inform our guide prior, we of course will be aware of this, but if you choose to steal yourself away for a restroom break, it is hard to point fingers at us if you are left behind on the tour, I am very sorry.
An informative view of the beers of Munich
Lois_E, May 2023
Michelle's narrative was very informative. She mixed well with all people in our tour group. This was our second time to participate in this tour. We really enjoyed ending the evening at a quieter German restaurant than the Hofbraubrau.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you very much for sharing your 5-star review on our tour you joined, it is much appreciated. We hope to see you next also at Radius Tours.
It’s OK…
Sarah_B, May 2023
The tour was ok, but I don’t think we’d take this tour again. I don’t believe it’s worth what you pay and expected more in regards to food and beer offered throughout the tour.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks Sarah for your honest feedback. Do you mind sharing with us what exactly you felt was out of place? If you expected a pub crawl and massive amounts of beer, this is not the tour for you, as we wish to educate all guests on the variety of food and beer that Bavaria calls home, so there is lots of differnt thihngs to try, not a massive amount of one single "item". If you mind sharing with us via email, this is much appreciated, as we wish to constanlty improve our services if something not satisfies you.
Too much walking; too...
Ricardo_J, May 2023
Too much walking; too much individual conversations with other guests at the exclusion of the rest of the group. Did not appreciate being left at the restaurant and not showing us how to return by metro.
Response from Host, May 2023
Ricardo, thanks for your honest feedback on the tour. We are sorry that you felt like the tour was including too much exploration of the city. Regarding dinner : We want to educate each guest on the tour to dive deeper into the culinary experience of Bavaria, so that you can continue after the tour with your new learned knowledge and know how to navigate the food and beer world of Munich, that is why we have you relax at the dinner venue after the tour and not break up the atmosphere and get everybody out of the restaurant again, as most people do enjoy to spend more time there to conclude their evening. Sorry if this felt like it was lacking for the tour.
Beer and Food!

Steve was an excellent guide with a great sense of humor! My husband and I love the history sprinkled in with the great beer and food! The dinner was fabulous and s lot of food!!!

Fun even though solo
deedumpling, May 2023
Lots more food and beer than I expected! Dani what is a fabulous experience leader! I guess I expected we would go in and have a beer at the Hofbrau House, but the tour ended there. I just wanted to look around, but couldn’t possibly drink any more beer.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks for the five star review of our Beer tour led by our guide Dani. Sounds like you drank your fill then! :)
Great tour and German food
Mary_T, May 2023
Dani our guide was wonderful, and the tour and food - WOW! But please give better directions (and include the name of Radius Tours!) in the information. We stumbled around in the rain for 15 minutes trying to find the tour because the directions were SO VAGUE. Others expressed the same frustration. Other than that, we were 100% happy 😀
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi Mary, thanks for your five star review of our Beer tour, great to read you enjoyed it. Our office and meeting point is described with the following "You find our office and meeting spot at Dachauer Straße 4, a shop with large glass windows and a small parking space in front. We are facing north side." Sorry to hear a few of you had trouble finding us.
An Okay Beer Tour
Kellsie_W, May 2023
My husband & I went on this tour during our stay in Munich. While we had a great time learning about the history of beer & it’s part in German culture, I think the description of the tour is a bit misleading. You really only try 3 SMALL beers, you walk inside hofbrauhaus for maybe 1 minute & the only snacks we got were a pretzel. You do get dinner & a beer at the end but based on the description I feel like they have left something to the imagination. The Oktoberfest museum also isn’t very impressive. But if you are not a big beer drinking & want to go more for the history then I would recommend it.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you Kellsie for your honest feedback. Indeed, as you mention, the tour is a tour to learn about the history and to taste the bavarian food & drinks, it is not to be trashed out of the door. We wish to give everybody a great basis of knowledge how life in Bavaria feels like and then everybody can continue on this journey to explore deeper.
Great beer tour
George_C, May 2023
Great beer tour! We loved the beer museum and it taught us all about beer history and brewing methods. We then went to the famous Hofbrau Haus and next to a great restaurant for a great German dinner. Would do again!
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks so much George for sharing your 5-star review with us. We appreciate your recommendations and we hope to see you back at Radius Tours next time again also!
