Description:

Munich City, Third Reich, Dachau, Salzburg, Nuremberg and Neuschwanstein...

Munich City, Third Reich, Dachau, Salzburg, Nuremberg and Neuschwanstein and other Ludwig II Castles. A tour with Curt Milburn is like having a welcoming family friend show you around Munich. Curt's been called "The Wikipedia of History". He specializes in small group and private tours. Tours are tailor-made and Curt finds out what YOU want to see. His City Tours go beyond canned, set routes. You'll see the famous sites, architecture, learn about kings, Hitler, foods and beer. Our Third Reich Tours delve deep into more than when, but why and how the Nazis came to power and you'll see the bombed buildings of Hitler. Curt's Dachau tours are sensitive and remarkably moving and his Neuschwanstein and Castle tours are great fun. Salzburg & Nuremberg are within your reach with Big Hat Tours! Every tour is accompanied by an Apple i-Pad with hundreds of photos to put you into history.

Curt is a very good Expat American giving tours in Germany. As an American, I feel his perspective particularly helpful. He was great with my kids and very informative. Clearly passionate about history and what he does. I would use him again. Only downside- he is quitting smoking...but hasn't yet...

Had a wonderful time in Munich and Bavaria with Curt. I was a little apprehensive as a solo traveler coming to Germany by myself despite not speaking the language but soon forgot about any reservations I had. Curt is a huge history buff like me especially regarding World War 2 and Hitler, and he fed my enthusiasm through a variety... More

Curt was a wonderful, fun and very knowledgeable tour guide. This was our first time in Munich, and Curt showed us a lot in a short time. He was very personable and I would highly recommend him.

We had a lovely time. Curtis was phenomenal. We, Children and adults alike , were all delighted with the tour, the films, the photos and the jokes. Curtis was also very helpful providing information about restaurants and transportation. We highly recommend it.

Curt was a terrific tour guide - very interesting, knowledgable, and entertaining. We saw everything we wanted to see and then some. Wear your best walking shoes because we covered a lot of ground. Highly recommend.

We booked the Third Reich small group tour with Curt based on the stellar Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We'd taken a free city walking tour the day prior, which touched on some of the same points, but Curt was SO much better. From the beginning, he took a real interest in tailoring the tour to our needs,... More

I booked three tours with Big Hat Tours (Munich City, Third Reich, and Dachau) for a 21-person high school group from Maine. He was easy to interact with online through the booking process and payment was also uncomplicated. His meeting point at Marienplatz is also great for easy access to the rest of the city. Most importantly, Curt is extremely... More

We did a tour of Munich with Curt and it was terrific. He laid out various sights/routes around the city and asked what we were interested in before we set off. He also has an iPad loaded with cool, old photographs that show what the city looked like before/after much of the destruction that occurred during WWII. Curt was very... More

It was a rainy morning in Marienplatz, Munich! Our family of 4 met up with Curt by Café Rischart. Curt gave us several options of what he can show us, as well as funny jokes for my 2 boys! We saw historical churches, chatted by the Royal Residence and discussed why the 2 lions looked in different directions, had a... More

Our group of six were lucky enough to have Curt to ourselves for this four hour Third Reich Tour. Some of us had been to Munich before and some were new to the city, but we all got a lot out of this most interesting and informative tour. A knowledgeable guide, we listened intently to Curt's mellifluous American drawl as... More
