An update from the TLE Team

Fellow beer drinkers and globe trotters,

The past several weeks have been a trying time for tourists and the tourism industry alike. The Coronavirus has brought with it a lot of uncertainty about the future for local and international communities. We have been closely monitoring the situation in Munich, Bavaria and around Europe to reach informed and responsible decisions regarding our operations.

For the past 9 years The Local Experience has brought together people from all different walks of life, cultures, nations and languages over delicious Munich beer, food and laughter. The COVID-19 was declared a pandemic on the 11th of March 2020 by the World Health Organization and this has, and will continue to, affect tourism in Germany. We feel that it is also our shared social responsibility to try to flatten the curve and encourage everyone to #StayHome. This will help stop the rapid spread of the virus, ease the strain on our hospitals and clinics and ultimately save lives.

It is with this notion that we have decided to halt our operations from March 14th until May 15th. Our guided tours will not operate during this time and there will be no staff on site at any of our offices or start locations with immediate effect.

As the situation develops, we will keep all of you informed and take measures to adapt our policies and tours as needed or required (Check our FAQ for detailed info). We look forward to the time when this will become a distant memory and we can once again welcome all our thirsty travellers on one or more of our beloved tours.

In conclusion, our thoughts and prayers go out to all those being affected by illness. We are thankful to our governments, local health authorities and emergency response units working tirelessly around the clock to look after the greater well being of us all. Please remember to stay home and only travel if it is absolutely necessary. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult and challenging time. Stay safe and we will see you all on the other side, once we can once again share some beers and laughs together.

With kind regards from the beer capital of the world,

John Jahns & Tim Muutuki

Founders of The Local Experience Tours
