Munich City, Third Reich, Dachau, Salzburg, Nuremberg and...

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.

excellent tour - so much information

Our family, 4 of us, did a walking tour with Kurt about 2 weeks ago. Kurt was fun and definitely knows his facts. Great details on the Hitler era.

I highly recommend Curt of Big Hat Tours if you are looking for a day tour of Munich and/or Nyphemburg palace. We found his prices to be very reasonable and Curt was easy to get in touch with via email to make arrangements. Curt picked us up at the Platzl Hotel, where we stayed, asked us what we are interested... More

I travelled here with three teenagers as a treat for my sons birthday. As we were only in Munich for two nights I wanted to make the most of our time and so booked a private tour for the Saturday morning. Curts tour lasted over three hours and was a really enjoyable experience, he tailored the tour exactly to our... More

We enjoyed two days of tours with Curt, and it was wonderful!!! We took the Third Reich morning small group tour and the tour of Dachau - they could not have been better. He is so knowledgeable about the history and relates it in a very interesting way. We also took a private tour to the Neuschwanstein Castle, and it... More

We took two tours with Curt. One was the small group tour to Neuschwanstein Castle and a private Munich City tour. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and very accommodating. He made it very interesting and exciting. We are extremely satisfied and glad we chose Curt for our tour guide.

My four friends and I were pleasantly surprised by what an amazing tour Curt showed us at Dachau. We weren't sure of what to expect, especially from a tour such as this but I am so glad we booked with Big Hat Tours. I couldn't imagine going to Dachau without Curt because he informed us of such interesting details that... More

We, a couple,spent a morning plus with Curt who quickly assessed what we wished to learn from his tour. It was a combination of City tour and Third Reich and it was prefect. We quickly moved about at our pace and Curt gave us information with good timing, focussing on our interest. Curt is very knowledgeable and prepared for his... More

Curt was really terrific. We had a great time walking around Munich, tasting some wonderful foods at the Viktualienmarkt and learning the history of the City. My only regret was that we did not take the tour the first day we arrived. Book him early to have the opportunity to make us of his insider information and recommendations.

I have done private tours on many other occasions and this was the second of this trip, the first being of the D-Day beaches in Normandy. This was a great tour and the highlight of our 16 days in Europe. I have been to Munich on 2 other occasions but never new all that there was to see. The Third... More

Curt is just an all around great guy! We had the pleasure of doing a combination Munich City/Third Reich tour with him and he was incredibly knowledgeable guy; everything we asked him, he had an answer for. I loved the fact that he had pictures on his I pad that gave you a better idea on how things used to... More
