We had Stefie as our guide. She was super sick. Her knowledge of the city was incredible and she had answers to all of our questions. She told us to buy a fish at the beer gardens and it was amazing. Make sure you also get a pretzel and put the fish in the pretzel. Stefie will show you how. She also rides motorcycles which is pretty sick. I would recommend the tour with Stefie to all my friends who visit Munich. - Bryn, Jordan and Yale
