Owner description: 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-Pod with hundreds of photos to put you into history.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of meeting Curt and having him guide us around Munich for a private tour. He was very receptive to tailoring the tour to our likes and needs. Also, there was no problem taking "pit stops" for us since it was a chilly day. His use of an ipad to show pre-war pictures of... More

Curt was a very friendly guide with a deep knowledge in history and the architectures. I had two tours in a day to explore the city Munich and visit the memorial site Dachau. Luckily, I was the only guest on these tours because of the off-season. He was very kind and flexible - took a couple of breaks to warm... More

Carl was a great guide, despite sub zero temperatures and my jet lag he provided a very interesting morning in Munich. We did mainly churches and major landmarks in the city center, interspersed with coffee stops to warm up (tailored to my needs). If I return to Munich I will definitely contact Carl and perhaps do one of his other... More

Anyone who owns wearing a hat like Curt does with his Panama hat must be good at giving tours. Curt did not disappoint. We enjoyed his use of iPad to show before images of everything and he knew his history very well. To not be native yet know as much as he does it's pretty impressive. We almost overpaid grossly...

I only had four hours to explore the city Munich in January. Thanks to Curt I could see many historical places and make the most of the limited time available. Curt knows a lot Munich, he showed me very interesting places from WWII, that otherwise I would not know. If you go to Munich, you can not miss this tour!

My husband and I had limited time in Munich and wanted a knowledgeable and enjoyable tour guide to provide a walking tour of Munich highlighting the significant WWII historical areas. Our hotel (the Platz) contacted Curt and arranged for him to meet us. His tour was quickly paced as we had requested, thorough, rich with historical information and anecdotal stories.... More

A last minute decision to visit the Christmas Markets, I contact Curt at Big Hat Tours and he was very prompt in his reply and was able to accommodate my requests. I had two full days with Curt one day touring Nuremberg, the next day Neuschwanstein Castle. We travelled by train which gives Curt time to educate you on the... More

I generally do not write reviews but I had to make an exception. My family of seven toured Munich and Dachau with Curt on 12/17/14. He was engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining. Everyone reported that Curt was the best part of the trip. Unfortunately, Curt was not available the next day for our Neuschwanstein Castle tour and we were completely disappointed.... More
