Curt’s been called “The Wikipedia of History” and he specialize in small group and private tours. Every tour is 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 Curt leads you to the bombed buildings of Hitler. Curt’s Dachau tours are sensitive and remarkably moving and his Neuschwanstein and Castle tours are great fun. Salzburg is within your reach with Big Hat Tours! Every tour is accompanied by an Apple i-Pod 3 with hundreds of photos to put you into history. Curt goes beyond any tour guide in Munich giving you tips on dining, shopping, attractions and where to stay. You can escape the over-crowed, boring and scripted tours with Curt Milburn and Big Hat Tours. « less

Four of us took the train with Curt to Salzburg. First of all it is the most picturesque city, we really enjoyed it. Curt plans with you your day on the 2-hour train ride there. It's your day and Curt accommodates you in every way and he is very knowledgable. We visited the Mirabell Garden, a church, went thru one... More

What can I say about the quality of Curt's tours that hasn't already been said? The many hours we spent with him, over the course of 4 days, were interesting, entertaining, and informative. His storytelling and iPad slideshows made the tours come alive. Our family consisted of ourselves (the parents), our two 10 year old daughters and our grown up... More

My family and I are seasoned travelers and we've been on countless tours all over the world, and while we remember the places we've been and things we've learned, our guides seem to fade into obscurity and are easily forgotten. Enter Curt, the greatest guide you could ever imagine trekking around Bavaria with. He really took our vacation to another... More

Our family just returned from visiting Europe, and while there we were lucky to have Curt from Big Hat Tours expertly guide us on a wonderful full day tour of Neuschwanstein Castle. We had been recommended by friends to use Curt, and their advice was spot on. Curt met us at the Munich train station and from that moment on... More

Curt is a fantastic tour guide. I took the 3rd Reich Tour in Munich with my traveling companion on July 29th, 2014- and we were joined by a family of 3 . This is a walking tour of the many sites of Hitler's rise and claim to power- as it all started in Munich. Curt makes it all come alive... More

We, along with two friends, recently enjoyed four days of private touring with Curt. The experience was fantastic....we highly recommend Curt if you are in the Munich area. Our first day was an afternoon city tour of Munich. Curt asked us what we were interested in and then tailored the tour to fit our wishes. Curt is extremely knowledgeable and... More

My family recently took the small group 3rd Reich Tour with Curt in Munich and had a great experience. The tour was basically a walk to the sites where Hitler started after WW-I and began his rise to power. Curt provides fascinating historical detail as well as photos on his i-Pad to bring it to life. We saw the site... More

I'm finding that I really do like small tour groups. I just can't do enough research on my own, especially when I have limited time in a destination. Curt asked our group what we were interested in, Nazi history (little bit), architecture (yes), churches (some), general history (yes) and then tailored the agenda to fit. He really did hit a...

My wife and I had just one afternoon in Munich and wanted to make the most of our time so we engaged Curt for a walking tour of central Munich. It turns out to have been an excellent decision. Curt took some time to find out what our interests were then tailored a walk that took us through the heart... More

Our family scheduled two tours with Curt. He was able to cater each tour to our family's needs. I was worried about taking my 10 year old to tour Dachau, but Curt made it possible for our family to go. My husband, a history teacher, found Curt to have a wealth a knowledge that he will be adding to his... More
