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.

Kurt was a wonderful guide of Munich! We had a large group of 20 people with 20-somethings and 60+. He managed to entertain everyone for the entire 3 hour tour. It had a little bit of everything, including food, art and architecture and WWII history. I highly recommend him!

Our family had the pleasure of spending three hours on a Third Reich tour with Curt. It was astounding. Curt was well prepared - beyond our expectations. His depth of understanding was the match of a fine academic - but his interpersonal skills were as good as any great sales executive. He answered well researched questions and uninformed questions with... More

What can I say... We LOVED our Third Reich tour with Curt! He was informative without being dull, you broke the information into digestible bits -instead of overwhelming us with facts- and gave us some cool recommendations and tips for our stay in Munich. I was traveling with my husband and my parents, and we were really looking forward to... More

our family really wanted to know the WWII history of Munich and Curt more than delivered. We actually went to beer halls, meeting areas, and walked in areas that Hitler actually walked. Curt had so much information that made the past come to life. He had pictures of the city during the war and pointed out that we were standing... More

Curt was very prompt in his communication. Although I had to cancel the tour due to an itinerary change, I would like to specially thank him for his understanding and working with me to schedule a tour. I will most definitely seek to come back and schedule a day with Curt to seize an excellent opportunity of learning.

We had an incredible two days with Curt! We took the Third Reich/dachau tour and the Salzburg tour. He really dove deep into the history, architecture, and art of the area. He is clearly very knowledgable and passionate about what he does! He also took the time to make great restaurant recommendations and helped us plan our final day in... More

Wow can really recommend Curt. He was so good with our 4 children, my mother and the 2 of us. He taught us so much. Showed us all the secret places. My little one of 8 said it was his best trip by far!

I have traveled all over the world and never written a review. I am doing so now because I don't think I would have been able to say I really saw Munich without having taken this tour. I will admit I balked at spending the $ at first. But this tour is well worth it. Curt is so well read... More

We booked Curt for a family trip with my parents and two of my good friends. The three of us are all juniors in college studying abroad in Spain so we have had our fair share of lousy and mediocre tour guides. Curt went above and beyond to change to accomodate our ever varying needs from history to beer to... More
