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.

Six thumbs up from all three of us! My husband, 10-year old daughter and I had a private tour with Curt this morning. My daughter normally dreads walking tours and listening to historical events, but even she gave this tour a 5-star rating (this has never happened in the 2 weeks we've been touring France and Germany!) Curt shared the... More

We were two couples visiting Munich for the first time. Curt was friendly and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our morning together. Curt was sensitive to our interests and did a combination Munich/Third Reich tour. We all enjoyed walking through the food market and stopping to sample the cheeses and other delicacies.

Had a wonderful tour with Curt of Neuschwanstein Castle. We thoroughly enjoyed the vast knowledge of Curt and his story telling making the history of the area come to life. Having been to the castle before, but forgotten a lot, I'm sure to remember the stories Curt shared with us. I have a new friend in Ludwig. (And Curt, I... More

Our small group ( 2 couples) toured Munich with Curt and it was like meeting up with an old friend proud to show us his home. He was able to work each of our individual interests into the conversation so that we all took away a sense of understanding a bit more about another culture, another city. He added depth... More

Carl gave us a really informative and relaxed walking tour of Munich. He enquired about our interests at the beginning and based it on this. We had a great cross section of culture and food experiences and his historical knowledge was excellent!

Our tour with Curt was our first order of business when we got to Munich, and we really had a great time and overview of the city. Tours with Curt are really yours -- you get to tell him what interests you in general and about the city. In our case, we wanted a good overview of the city with... More

Curt does a great job. He loves what he is doing and it shows. While it might be easy for some to have their enthusiasm dampened with doing this everyday, not with Curt. He reminds me of my family, we have been to Disney World a few times and every time it's like the first time. Good stuff. Taking any... More

Curt was a wealth of information on both the City Tour and Dachau tour. It was really nice to explore these places with someone passionate about history. This is a man who enjoys what he does, and this is reflected in how he conducts his tours. I wish there was someone like Curt in every place I visited.

Curt did our private tour of Dachu. He did a great job making the history real with his commentary and pictures on his iPad. After the tour was over he provided ideas for things to to see the next day on our own as well as restaurant recommendations. Great guide.

My husband and I only had one full day in Munich and wanted to get the most out of our short time there. So glad we booked with Curt as he personalized our tour and made us feel as if we were touring Munich with a friend. He's a history buff with loads of knowledge to share yet it never... More
