    So did you talk to someone at contiki about it? Do you know for sure that Contiki doesn’t take the group into oktoberfest?

    Contiki generalises “bavarian beer hall” so people feel they arent railroaded into going to a particular beerhall. There are roughly 20 different kinds of beer halls at Oktoberfest and you can go wherever you like. Or not even go to a beer hall at all!

    The tour I went on last year, we all decided to go to the Lowenbrau beer hall. Its a common beer that you can buy here in australia if you want to sample it before you go.

    I cant imagine Contiki not taking you to oktoberfest if you are there while its being celebrated.
