The nice tour guide Boze maneuvered our quite large group through the breweries in Cologne's old town. He convinced us with his expert knowledge down to the last detail of the respective brewery and was very good at asserting himself against the "background noises" from the environment. >> Really great, this brewery tour and tour guide Boze are recommended!

we did a 2 hour tour. The tour guide has extensive knowledge and it was an all-round successful tour. Absolute recommendation for the guide. There is a small minus point for the price of the tour, at 19 € you shouldn't pay for the beer on top, but this is a criticism of the organizer.

Interessante Erklärungen, angenehm lockere Atmosphäre. Unser Guide Boze hat es für die gesamte Gruppe gut durchgeführt, alle Fragen super beantwortet. Unsere gemischte Gruppe mit unterschiedlichen Altersgruppen hat dadurch schnell zueinander gefunden. Wegen großer Verspätungen der Bahn, konnten wir kurzfristig und problemlos die Tour auf 2 Tage später schieben.
