What people are saying about Marienplatz

Daniella was the perfect guide. Everything was well organised in advance. We had lots and lots of food to try. Even so much that I could keep some cheese on the side for later. At the end we also had a delish dessert and then a beer of the new (seventh) Munich approved brewery. Perfect all together. I recommend and would do it again with Daniella.

We had a wonderful time on our food tour. Our guide was very nice and very knowledgeable. The food was delicious and I learned quite a bit even though it is not my first trip to Germany. She even was very accommodating with one member of our party who had mobility issues. I highly recommend this tour!

Nice uncomplicated guide, responsive to people, always a tip on the tongue,, was a lot of fun. Always my pleasure.

I highly recommend the tour. It is more than worthy. Great explanation, great food and friendly guide.

It's a decent tour, especially if you don't have a lot of knowledge going in.
