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.

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

Had the pleasure of doing the Third Reich and Dachau Tours with Curt on a Sunday in Munich: the experience was exceptional. Curt has a true passion for history and for people and this truly shows! It's a entirely different experience from encountering a tour guide who simply rattles off facts. Curt is able to weave a narrative of not... More

Curt was super friendly, full of information, and took us where we wanted to go vs being on a tour where everything is predetermined. He had great recommendations and the use of visuals just brought everything into perspective. Great tour, great guide!

I would like to recommend Curt to anybody who is thinking about taking a tour of Munich. We had a few extra days while on business in Munich. I found Curt on Tripadvisor and emailed him . He responded quickly and booked us in for the Third Reich and Dachau private tour. He met us promptly at 9:00 AM and... More

We were in Munich for only 1 day. Curt was able to set us up with a tour of the city and also Dachau. He was easy to correspond with via email to set up the tours and also easy to find. At the start of the tour he asked everyone what was important to them to see and gave... More
