Original Gravity Tours is a specialty travel company focused on providing tours of what we consider to be the beer capital of the world – Bavaria – specifically Munich & Bamberg, Germany.
Our goal is to provide a high-end travel experience with an emphasis on Bavarian beer and brewing, while mixing in visits to select cultural and historical sites.
On our tours we cover a 1,000 years of German brewing history by visiting breweries that range from the oldest brewery in the world (founded in 1040) to craft breweries that are just a few years old and part of the emerging Bavarian craft beer scene!
My name is Gene Lopez and in 2015, after 34 years in the high-tech industry, I decided it was time to focus on what I really love - international travel and amazing beer. With that, Original Gravity Tours was born!
Why Germany, and in particular why Bavaria? I began traveling to Munich in 2001 for business and immediately fell in love with the people, the energy, and of the course the beer. Perhaps it's due to my German ancestry - that's right, join one of our tours and I'll explain everything!
I was also a home brewer at the time, and touring some of the world's oldest breweries in Bavaria was a real eye-opening experience. For example, one brewery I visited early on, which we also visit on our tours, is Weihenstephan that founded in the year 1040!
Over the years I continued visiting Munich and/or Bamberg at least once a year until I started Original Gravity Tours. Today I find myself there several times a year and I still love it!
I hope you can join us one summer for a true bucket-list experience!
