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 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

If you have ever done private tours in Europe then you know it can be hit or miss. I have endured tour guides that drone on and on with little to no enthusiasm about the particular subject area or monument you are visiting. That is not the case with Big Hat Tours! This guy is awesome! His tour are educational... More

He managed to squeeze us in on short notice and gave us an excellent half day tour of Munich, hitting... More

Curt gave us a fantastic tour that hit both the big sites in Munich as well as some hidden spots. Curt was clearly very knowledgable about the city and took us to all the best places. I would highly recommmend this tour to anyone visiting Munich.

Loved this tour with Curt. If it like tripling the time you have because you Curt takes you directly to the best places. Sure, you can explore on your own, but this is the best way. Plus, you get insight and see things that you would never experience without a great tour guide like Curt. Terrific job! The tour we... More
