    The tour was awesome. Locations of hotels couldn’t get any better. What really made the tour was the people. We had so much fun with everyone and made some incredible memories! The only thing I would have liked a little more would have been suggestions on things to do during the day. I loved not being tied to a schedule but could have used a few recommendations on fun things to do in each city.
    Thirsty Swagman commented on this review
    Thank you for the great review and the feedback regarding recommendations on things-to-do during the day, it's something we're going to include on next year's tours. Stay thirsty, always!

    loved the tour, would have liked resverations in beer tent in the evening, but...had fun with the ones we had except it is tough drinking a litter of beer at 10 am...lol. The bus driver was excellent, our guides Max and Ashly were fantastic. Over all this tour was worth every euro spent!
    Thirsty Swagman commented on this review
    Thanks Ron for the great feedback on the Beer or Bust tour, specifically about Ashley & Max, as well as the bus driver Markus - will pass it onto them all. Ah yes, those 10am beers... the Bavarians certainly make the most of the day haha. Prost!

    I thought overall the tour was great. The only thing I would have liked to have seen would have been some recommendations for things to do at different places based on experience. There is so much to do at each place it is hard to know what the best things to do may be.
    Thirsty Swagman commented on this review
    G'day Jeff, great to hear you had such a good time on the Beer or Bust tour and thank you for the feedback, it's much appreciated!
