We took this tour with friends from Vienna and were completely enthusiastic. Our tour guide Aved from Lohausen (which pleased us because we also have a personal connection to Lohausen ;-) offered a great program of things worth knowing about the city of Düsseldorf, information and stories about the origins of Altbier brewing as part of the old town tour through to Altbier tasting. The fun was not neglected, the Aved knew how to answer all questions humorously with Rhenish charm.

Our guide Vicky was very nice! We were a bit late but she waited for use without inconveniencing the rest of the group which was very thoughtful of her! She also knew a lot of facts about the cities and the breweries, we love history so this was very fun for us! I would really recommend this tour at the beginning of your stay, it's the way we found our favourite brewery ;)

It was really a very successful tour. Entertaining, entertaining, fun and with a few glasses of delicious old too.Exactly the right mixture and certainly an excursion for young to old. A special thank you to Milena. We really had a good time with you and you are doing really great :-)

We were the only 2 people on the tour. Usually they dont allow this but they kindly allowed the tour to go ahead. It was very insightful and the guide was helpful and willing to show us around. Overall a really great tour.

A really interesting and fun tour of Düsseldorf with a friendly guide.
