What people are saying about Düsseldorf

My partner and I were blessed to have Alina take us on a guided tour of the various traditional brauhäuser in the Altstadt. She was very engaging, knowledgeable and spoke perfect English! Her passion for Düsseldorf and Altbier was clear to see, and her enthusiasm kept us very engaged. The conversation flowed naturally, it was like drinking with an old friend. We learned so much, and look forward to enjoying altbier based on Alina's recommendations for the rest of our holiday. Thank you so much! I would recommend the tour as a first day activity for anyone planning on visiting Dusseldorf, as it will give you some important insight into the traditions and history of the local brauhäuser.

We booked on a Sunday, so it was a smaller group and the bars were quieter which was great. Alina, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We learnt some really interesting things about the culture, and process of ordering beers, which would have confused us if we went on our own. It's a drinking experience you can only get in Düsseldorf. Highly recommend.

I found the tour really interesting. You learned a lot about the city without getting bored. The two hours flew by. Our guide Jürgen answered our questions and was able to answer them.

Although we were only 2 participants and it was really bad weather, the guide organized a great tour of the old town

Very pleasant experience, interesting info, nice walk
